I was trying not to open the can of worms about whether or not the war was fought over slavery.
I am opposed to slavery. If I said the states were right, it would appear to many that I am condoning that peculiar institution that ended in the South after the war.
If the South had won, that peculiar institution would have continued, for a time.
The lying leftists already spread the hideous falsehood that conservatives are racists, so why give them any more reason to buy into it?
