I'm sorry if that ruins your "Gone With the Wind" romantic notions of the Civil War but there was nothing romantic about it. The war started not because of slavery but secession. The secession was caused by primarily slavery.

Do you feel as i have mistreated you? i have not instulted you. Please quote where i said the civil war started over slavery. in fact, that was the whole point of the post, that it was used as political fuel to get the north moving.

cold-blooded non-moral capitalistic kind of way

Most would call saving money 'common sense'.

Leaving it up in tax-funded areas is wrong. It is no different than flying a swastika over a government building in Brooklyn. If you want it stuck on your pickup truck, God bless you. To many others it actually symbolizes the closest thing to a holocaust that we have had. Wellllll, unless you want to talk about the American Indian. We'll save that for another game related thread that we can invade with our rambling.

Heh. Negative.
It is an important part of American history, like i said before. To compare it to a the holocaust does a great injustice to those who were affected by it. I know ill have to elaborate later, but im tired.

Speaking as a fellow Texan, I have to disagree with you on the underlying meaning of the Confederate flag. The South seceded over the issue of states' rights but that particular 'right' was the freedom to purchase and own slaves. When Lincoln became president, southerners assumed he would abolish slavery and voted to secede. While Lincoln despised slavery ("if slavery is not evil then nothing is evil") he was willing to allow the practice to remain in the southern states while banning it in the territories and new states if it meant keeping the south in the Union and avoiding war. Once the South left, the war was on and Lincoln abolished slavery a couple of years later.

You may want to cross check your sources. There were many more contributing factors that led to the secession. Also, Lincoln used the Anti-Slavery agenda as a tool to promote northern cooperation. He was not basing the war on the ownership of slaves until later on. This can and has been well documented.

I think to many, the Confederate flag represents the yearning to be free of an oppressive federal government. Most of the southerners who fought in the war probably felt this way. They weren't slave owners or even landholders. However, the people who voted to secede were. They were the rich plantation owners and farmers who didn't want to face the economic cost brought about by the demise of slavery. Their motive was pure greed and because of them, four years of slaughter and butchery commenced. This is hardly anything to honor today. I don't think the flag should be banned like the swastika in Germany but I would like to see it removed from flagpoles and buildings at government sites.

Slaves were by no means economical. It was a huge investement. You have to remember that at this time farm machinery was growing, and the machines were cheaper and offered greater efficiency and speed.
It would soon have been cheaper to do it without the slaves. The difference was in the North and souths methods of reintroducing the slaves into the general population. The Northern anti slavery sympathizers primarily wanted immediate emancipation, while the South propsed gradual emancipation, where the slaves were educated and taught Christianity before they were set free.

Taking the flag down is wrong, it symbolizes the start of government power skyrocketing.

Left and right wing are old illusions now...they are very similar under practice.

I do agree that the old Left / Right wing is being replaced by Libertarian Vs. Authoritarian, these days. Most people, I'm sure, believe that a Government should in fact be Centrist, but the best way that we've ever found of getting that is to put all the Libertarian's and Authoritarian's together in a room, and only make law what BOTH SIDES agree is right.

Its a shame that the educational system is in shambles isnt it?

We could argue back and forth about this, suffice to say that your spectrum is circular as opposed to linear. or something

I think you meant left totalitarianism=communism as in Stalin
right totalitarianism=fascism as in Hitler.

nope. i meant left=totalitarianism in all forms, including fascism, right=no government at all, ie anarchy. thats the true spectrum, its just more convenient for some to have to choose between 2 totalitarian extremes...it acts as a justification

And don't start using that word 'statism' again. You'll annoy our leftist English friends.

Good =)

A 5% tax was considered despotic and oppressive back then, unlike today where we shuffle off 40% or so plus inflation.

It would be a shame if he was bigger/stronger/better fighter than you wouldnt it? then you would be dead or seriously injured. Firearms are equalizers.

Are you a troll or do you seriously think that children dont know what death is? I dont know about you, but i knew that TV was fake about the time i understood what it was i was watching...far too early to go on a killing spree. I personally dont know very many small children who a)play violent games b)regularly handle firearms and c)dont understand death

People who oppose hunting typically come from urbanized areas who have lived there all their lives and thus do not grasp what it is and why you do it.
