None of which changes the fact that economically slavery was failing and was on the decline.

He’s saying people would try and bring back slavery today.

That's something I've heard the craziest of the Leftists say. I listened to that nut Mike Malloy rant for an hour once about how conservatives Christians wanted to bring back slavery and the stoning of sinners. They just make up whatever they think justifies their hatred and then seethe over it.

People like Shep Smith would apparently prefer a dictatorship of some sort over a representative government.

This “guns equal slavery” meme is getting old already. The left is getting kookier by the minute. I wish people would wake up and realize how stupid they are.

BTW Shep, I equate being gay with slavery. There, take that!!!

Shep: "Polls? Polls? We can't go by polls. If we did we would still have slavery!"

The alternative of going by polls is to go on principle. But in the case of the right of the people to bear arms, principle and polls agree, so he should not be complaining.

No, not at all. A lot of bloodshed and treasure could have been saved had the south overall accepted that realization. Slavery as an institution was beginning to become non-viable and the costs were rising, especially considering that Britain had already outlawed slavery and the importation had become too risky.

The south fired the first shots in an effort to keep slavery as their “peculiar” institution

Peculiar to them unless you count: Delaware, Kentucky, Maryland, Missouri, and West Virginia the slave states who did not secede and where it was legal until the 13th amendment was ratified about four months before the end of the war!!!!

The term came from the southern leaders, John C. Calhoun and Alexander Stephens in particular, who used the term peculiar in terms of “our own” as in our own (southern) institution. It was not a reference to peculiar as meaning strange. The states that did not secede were considered to be southern states. West Virginia seceded from Virginia and stayed with the union.

The term peculiar references that they were alone in their sanctioning slavery...which they were not...so you consider Deleware and Maryland to be a southern states.

The 13th Amendment wasn't ratified till December, 1865, some months after the war ended.

When it did go into effect, it freed slaves only in KY (around 50,000) and DE (around 200).

All other slaves in America (98.75%) had been freed before the war ended either by the Emancipation Proclamation or state action.

Even before the Civil War, why do you think Lincoln was elected? He ran as an abolitionist.

He did no such thing.

He recognized that under the Constitution the federal government had no power to interfere with slavery in a state, and said so publicly many times.

Most abolitionists didn't care what the Constitution said, in fact some of them denounced it and publicly burned it.

Lincoln campaigned in favor of prohibiting the spread of slavery into new areas, not of abolishing it in the states where it existed.

That's what I said it was constitutionally legal in those states until the 13th amendment was ratified. The emancipation proclamation freed no slaves in that the states it applied to did not recognize it. It was a propaganda ploy to try and get the slaves to rebel!!!

They were nominally southern or southern leaning in portions of both states.

The use of “our own” is the same “...they were alone in their sanctioning slavery...” The meaning of the term peculiar in the full context of their usage by both Calhoun and Stephens in speeches indicates that they saw it as an institution that was southern in nature.
