The South still remembers the men and women of the Confederate States of America who came from all races and religions that include: Cuban born Confederate Colonel Ambrosio Jose Gonzales, Irish-born General Patrick R. Cleburne and Black Confederate drummer Bill Yopp.

12 hours and counting. Still waiting for that example of a NE U.S. conservative.
“Confederate ancestors’’. Modern day Confederate, dumbass, now run along Reb.
F off newbie, with the rest of your liberal friends.
No, I just live here, I'm "from away"...a "flatlander" so to speak.
Some of the folks from here are insulted by the term Yankee, that's for liberal city folks from Boston and New York. The hardcore northern coastal types call themselves Downeastahs.
BTW name one conservative legislator from New England, or from the north east for that matter.
Well, I don't know about any Congresscritters, ours are all pretty liberal, but our Governor LePage is a fairly crusty rock-ribbed conservative.
Sorry, I have to work, and work, and work. Last night I got home, went to bed, got up, went to work.
As far as I know, I had no ancestors on either side of the Civil War.
Right back at you a-hole. Liberal? Hah! You’re the liberal stupid. Coming to a conservative web-site venerating a bunch a Dixiecrats. Boy, irony is sure lost on you.
Leftist Yankee punks like you are a dime a dozen. Why don’t you take your silly ass back to du where you belong?
Sorry Reb, I’m a conservative, not a Leftie. It’s you who should be a DU. You’re the one venerating Dixiecrats.
Liberal Troll..... I have been here extolling conservative causes over over a 11 years. You less than 2. Take your liberal, reading comprehensive limited ass back to du where it belongs. I bet you are from the NE. Lot of RINO pseudo-conservatives there. Mittens your hero?
My hero is Duncan Hunter. And Sarah Palin. And yes I’m from the Northeast. So what? You think we’re all liberals here, is that it? You’ve got a lot to learn boy.
All races and religions? Asians? East Asians? Muslims? Shintos? Hindus? Polynesians? Australian Aborigines?
You think we're all liberals here?
uh..... yes., or pseudo conservatives.
We should remember that slavery existed in the North, too. It just ended sooner.
Your comment to a fellow Freeper is rude.
As a Freeper you owe it to yourself to learn more about the War Between the States.
There were many many brave Confederate soldiers who fought to retain the rights of their states over the rights of the federal government.
As originally intended the federal government has no right to intervene in states’ issues. I personally do not want the federal government forcing states to allow voting with no ID or forcing states to stop arresting illegals.
The war that you call the Civil War was actually a War for the Rights of States to determine their own laws in certain areas.
You would find it interesting and perhaps have a better appreciation for those who gave their lives if you learned more about that war.
Since you have learned so much about the War Between the States, exactly what rights was the Federal Government attempting to take away from the states in 1860 that lead to secession?
What violations had the Federal Government done to any of those states?
Since you know so much, please be specific on how the Federal Government violated the Constituitional Compact with the States?
Just in my memory they voted for LBJ and Jimmy Carter (won every Southern State except Virginia) and lots of them for Bill Clinton, and even in Virginia and North Carolina for Barak Obama. Go back before my memory, and FDR and his Socialist Big Government agenda won every southern state by large majorities FOUR freaking times!
It wasn't until northern Republican transplants like Gingrich, Paul, Barr, McCllumun etc. gained a foothold that the 'Solid South' Democrat machine was broken.
Thank the transplanted Yankee Republicans for that blessing. Other than those kind of guys, the 'good ol' boy machines would still be operating.
Spare me the crap about the last output of freedom. Maybe Wyoming or Alaska can take that title, but every Southern state is just as tied the the Federal tit today as the rest of the Nation. Since FDR, we're all scrambling for 'free federal dollars.' That's our problem.
We send people to Washington to try to get back some of our money that Washington shouldn't have in the first place.
And there were many many brave Union soldiers who fought to retain the rights of their nation against the violent and illegal acts of insurrectionists. That works, too.
Or how about, "There were many many brave soldiers who fought a cause that they believed in". I can go for that...;-)
Actually sonny boy I was 24 in 1980 and voted for Ronald Reagan.
Madame, spare me your revisionist history. As I’ve stated it strikes me odd to see people coming to conservative web-site venerating a bunch of Dixiecrats like Jeff Davis and the CSA. The South fought to preserve the institution of slavery. They certainly weren’t fighting to free the slaves. My ancestors fought to preserve the Union. Learn the history yourself before lecturing me. And as to being rude, I’ve been cursed at here and even threatened so again,as much as a gentleman as I am, spare me your faux indignation.
