    Re: Take down the #ConfederateFlag at the SC Capitol.

    Many in the south feared that an empowered Republican Party would attempt to curtail or end slavery. Or perhaps even create, to borrow a phrase, "negro equality".

    Their fears proved correct.
  4. Re: Discussion on Greek political, financial issues + Referendum

    Most nations with severe financial problems choose to go through either the pain of austerity or the pain of default.

    Looks like Greece is choosing to go through both.

    Re: Take down the #ConfederateFlag at the SC Capitol.

    It was a very good thing that the Union won the war and that the Civil War Amendments were passed.

    It advanced liberty more than even the American Revolution.

    Lets be clear.

    Obama opposed same sex marriage for the first 4 years of his presidency. For the first three years, the DoJ actively defended challenges to DOMA brought by gay rights groups trying...

    Re: Texas preventing voters from registering

    Why shouldn't non-citizens be allowed to vote? Up until the ~1930's they were allowed to. Seems undemocratic to me.

    A person should be allowed to vote for the government which has power over them.
