“Another 21 percent of Republicans said they weren’t sure while 9 percent of Democrats said they weren’t sure.”

That is very telling of America under Obama.

He wouldn’t be fighting alongside you, he’d be a collaborator.

Truly idiotic article. Does it refer to whether people think the CSA was right? Or are they talking about a theoretical future CSA, presumably consisting of the same states?

While I’m not a fan of the historical CSA, I might support a future one, depending entirely on the circumstances of secession and what the alternatives were.

This country,as currently constituted,is broken beyond repair.Secession is the only answer.That way,parts of the country (the “red” states) can be saved.Let the usual suspects (California,New York,etc,etc,etc) make EBT cards mandatory,allow marriage among five mammals and make Mexico one of their states.But count the other states out!

Don’t forget that this country is so broken that some Space Bars are beyond repair.

That 37% would skyrocket once the issues were clearly presented.

Yes, after Boston Massacre II (I assume it will include DHS and drones but who’s counting)

Both the nuns and the Army taught me my style of writing many years ago.Presumably it was the standard method back then.I'm not much concerned by those who disapprove of my style.

It’s all good. Just a bit of a joke.

It reminded me of a job I once had where we had a six hour meeting debating I’d we should use one or two spaces after periods and between sentences.

I was strongly in the two space camp.

OK..fair enough.Yes,I know that double space seems to be the more "modern" method.Or,for that matter,I may have been improperly instructed or may have misunderstood what I was being taught.But the debate in which you participated suggests that I'm not the only one who "single spaces".

Of course, the only purpose of this poll is to smear McDaniel supporters.
But the poll that would interest me would be to ask who would support splitting into 2 nations: are red state nation and a blue state nation. Broken down by party alffiation, I suspect you’d find a lot of support among Conservative voters, but would be wildly unpopular with libs and moderates.

I thought the same thing. Depends on how the question was framed. I would not support States rights to stay in the union and be able to enslave people. I would however support the ability of a state to leave and form their own separate country ... thus I would support the CSA ability to secede.

I would not live in a state that supported slavery. Thus if I lived in Mississippi and the choice was stay in the union/abolish slavery or leave the union & keep slavery I would vote for the former. This is all in the context of the 1860 debate.

Today’s situation is different. I believe every state should have the right to secede and form their own country and I’m ready to do that now if it could be done peacefully.

Nearly everybody is opposed to slavery now and the vast majority of people in this country (both North and South) are thankful that Lincoln and the Union put an end to slavery and protected the Constitutional rights and citizenship of all Americans, North and South.

37% of those Democrats have been running a Socialist uncivil war against the US for half a century now. Stalinists lie. ALWAYS.

There is not a state in the nation where this could be done “peacefully.”

Our divisions today, unlike in 1860, are not regional. They are ideological and cultural, and they’re mixed across America. Even the most conservative state has a great many liberals, and the reverse is also true.

Any civil war in America today would not be a war between regions like the WBTS, it would be a true civil war, and would be much nastier.

Yep. I've reminded some of that very fact. Physical secession would be extremely problematic.
