The Democrats were the pro-slavery party, and there's nothing more socialistic than slavery.

Wrong. There's nothing more socialistic than slavery in a socialistic system. The USA had slavery within a capitalistic system. Slavery in the north and the South would have disappeared, like it did in all other slave countries of the era, because of the Industrial Revolution and new farm equipment. Slavery was no longer economical.

Today the USA has slavery because of socialism. And we are hopelessly locked into it. We are slaves to the IRS, Social Security, Federal regulations on business and commerce, slaves to the Federal courts, etc.

The slavery we live under now will become as bad or probably worse than any slavery in the USA of 150 years ago.

BTW, if lincoln had been allowed to package his methods of ending slavery, into a global vision, the death toll would have been staggering.

As it turned out, all other slave countries in the world, ended slavery at a conference table without firing one shot.

If my state voted legally to leave the union, and declared it's independence, AND the federal government tried to coerce it back thru force, AND if my state called upon me to defend it's rights.....YES, I would fight. Like Robert E. Lee, my highest duty is to my home FIRST. And my home is TEXAS. Now....would I agonize over such a decision. YES.....I love my country. But I love my home more.

My home is Georgia, and I share those sentiments. Kudos to you sir.

No plan was hatched to send assassins to Washington to kill President Lincoln.

You need to have a talk with your good buddy, nolu-chan. He/she is a big follower of all those Lincoln assaination conspiracy theorists.

Thank you Sir....my ancestor was from Gainesville, GA, and fought with the 11th Georgia.....I cherish my roots, and know the state well!

I will never understand why some of these so-called conservatives can't see our viewpoint....

I remember Lincoln as a traitor to the republican virtue of sovereignty originating with the people and their inalienable right to reclaim that.

He should be remembered as a man who was no different then King George in his arrogant presumption that he had the right to rule a people against their will. The blood of 630+ thousand people is on that tyrants hands. As is the destruction of our once Free and Voluntary Federal Constitutional republic.

My home State is also Texas and I also share that sentiment and resolution.
