You'd think that the Johnny Rebs would have learned their lesson the LAST time they started this secession crapola.





(Do we have to go dig up General Sherman and send him down there to burn Atlanta down again?)

Um, did you read the article? This is not a Southerner proposing secession, this a libtard proposing to eject the Southern states from the Union with the exception of Texas - those rotten b@stards want the best part of the South for themselves.

As to Sherman, were he alive today he’d have already recaptured Washington DC from the traitors who currently run it.

Hate to burst a damn yankee misconception, but in 1860 ALL economic power resided in the north and still it almost did not beat the South.

Now the economic power no longer is in yankee-land. What would the outcome be now??

As to that ChickenShite coward Sherman, it was damn easy to terrorize old folks, women and children. You certainly will not win any freinds bringing up that turd, pretending he’s some valiant hero (well maybe to the north, which shows greatly its lack of empathy and true intention).

(1) I double dog dare you to go to Dallas or Atlanta and run your mouth about Sherman. Any “Johnny Reb” as you disparagingly referred to Southeners would kick your butt. Sherman was a butcher who slaughtered mostly elderly, women, and children. But you revere him? Revolting.

(2) This isn’t 1861. Your assumption that a North/South conflict would look anything like it did then shows a complete lack of understanding of the factors involved in such conflicts.

(3) Where do most of the troops come from now? Where is most of the industrial base? Just those two factors alone are completely opposite of what they were in 1861.

(4) If push came to shove, Texas would just turn off most of the West Coast — they have an isolated power grid, and a huge chunk California’s power comes from Texas. Shortly after that, most of the rest of the country’s interconnected power grids would collapse. Then the scum-infested urban cesspools in the North would burn themselves down in about 2 weeks. Max. End of conflict.

Finally, I’d rather see America stay a unified Constitutional America. But the blather and delusion that any conflict (which will be started by the North if it comes - see this artlicle and other violent rhetoric spewing from the left just today) would be anything like the last go-around is just that — blather and delusion.
