First of all, you sound like one of those "low information voters", who sort of walk around in a daze, don't really understand anything, and randomly pick up a lot of false information, right?
Second, "good" and "evil" in this case hugely depend on your views toward slavery.
If you consider slavery evil, then those who declare war to defend it should have a pretty hard time proving they are somehow "good", right?
In historical fact, the Confederacy was formed precisely to modify the Constitution to add clauses which protected the "rights" of owners of human "property" -- yes, "forever".
miliantnutcase: "The more I studied the civil war and compared it to modern day politics the more I see parallels happening.
Ive grown to question my belief of Lincoln, and who was really 'right' regarding the war."
But you haven't studied the civil war, you really know nothing about it.
Instead, you've absorbed some propaganda from Neo-Confederates, and now can't separate their nonsense from what really happened.
That's why you're so confused.
miliantnutcase: "As I see states rights continue to erode to this day, I believe we are doomed to repeat history."
It's true that states rights continue to erode, but the reason is not Abraham Lincoln, it began with the 16th and 17th Amendments, both ratified just 100 years ago, under Progressive Southern Democrat President Woodrow Wilson.
As for "doomed to repeat history", it's just not going to happen, so long as good people obey the laws and act peacefully to achieve their political goals.
You’re trolling attempt is getting you butt kicked in this discussion.
I think you owe Rush 20 bucks for his catch phrase.
