“This time the states will be on the right side of the moral issues”

What issue would that have been? Do you mean the “peculiar institution” that Lincoln proposed strengthening, lest the dearer principle of taxation founder?

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?
