I in no way ever gave any defense of slavery or the southern way of life. Slavery is the ugliest stain on the moral fabric of America. I just stated a simple fact. The civil war resulted from the clash between an industrial north and an agrian south. Slavery was the emotional flame that sparked the fire. Remember there was a much different tax system then than there is today. natural resources were extracted from the south and used in the north. As for reconstruction, it still took the south 100 years to recover and become prosperous.
One did not have to support slavery to believe that states had the right to seceed. Of course the left has done a very good job of convincing most of America that anyone who believes in states rights is a racist.
I realize that my argument on the civil war is the minority opinion, but the facts support it. On its face, to say that we fought a war of slavery just makes no sense. We fought a war to free a people and then treated them like crap for the next 100 years? I dont think so.
