I'm ready for North Carolina to leave the union, again!

How did that work out the first time?

Well, Lee's Army of Northern Virginia held out against for several years scoring impressive victories, but was eventually fighting a defensive war against an army with far superior industry, resources, and sheer manpower. You should really read DiLorenzo's The Real Lincoln and the works of Shelby Steele on the Civil War.

On a lighter note, we have more of a case than ever to break away from the union and damn it, what sort of army is Ted Kennedy's state going to muster that'd even come close...industry....the unions and politicans almost killed it off...and they want to "preserve" the environment...so resources would be off limits. I'd say it go pretty well the second time and I get tickled at thinking at the sort of misfits we'd have to fight...perhaps them four women who played gay guys on that show called Sex And the City.

It went----poorly. I believe Ft. Sumter is at Charleston and it was South Carolina that left the Union first.

Some big mistakes were made, but the end result was inevitable, No country can survive when real sanctions are applied. Sanctions such as Barricading the ports and Borders. When one part of a divided country has 95% of the Navy and 75% of the industry and twice the population,the other half hasnt got much of a chance. The boys from down south put on a good show though. In order to beat them the North had to throw away the Constitution. Lincoln broke most every Article of the Constitution.

This time the South has the industrial base and almost all of the military bases. I like the odds this time. (;-)
