You appear to be another one of those lost causers who conflate and confuse current conditions to 150 year old history. So, are you suggesting that the same sort of traitorous bastards who turned their backs on their country and their commitments are or should be the ones who save us from the progressives this time around?
The only lost cause I lament about is the one the Founders started, and the continual reduction of the original intent, driven by revisionists of every stripe and every agenda, but particularly the NWO Progressive one that began post WBTS.
IF you want to call the same people who CREATED this country traitorous bastards, then you can live with that version of history. Not one was convicted of treason, and the only ones who were hung (aside from an unfortunate Swiss-born CSA officer- a foreigner that is), were the assassination conspirators (with a good bit of recently researched info that Sec. Stanton and his band of Reconstruction Radical repubs were behind killing Lincoln— who would have been much more lenient on the South, as Goad’s observations support. Please don’t forget that Lincoln’s mother, Nancy Hanks, was pure Southern). Who IS w being suggested? Constitutionalists, who support the original Founders intent and a distinct cultural group. They are not composed of pseudo conservative Statist RINOs machine party politicians who devolved from the repub party of Lincoln to today.
Might add that it is just as specious to call the democrats the party of slavery. Neither party is the same as 150 years ago, once the Progressive agenda took over and the Establishment (all hail fellow well met— you know, like the loser Alf Landon) became the Statist norm with an agenda that has had little to do with the sovereign country of the USA, and manipulated by an elite crew of extra sovereign world government types. The rise of European sovereignty is a harbinger of what is happening to us, expressed as a State’s sovereignty— we are NOT paying for this federal monster.
There is far more blatant organized bigotry against blacks in the North (all academic political contortions aside), and it is essential for the Northern liberals to cover that up with continual “tut-tuts” against expressed Southern heritage which is expressed along with frank patriotism for the US. They need to have “superior” feelings so essential to Progressives who know better than our Founders.
Surely it must be maddening for the Statist police of the coming state being planned to figure out who is whom as they continue to eliminate our rights in their comfortable gubmint jobs (all equal opportunity hires— to include sharia muslims). The people at the top are criminal, and one in particular. Pravda is correct- how ironic.
