  1. robert e lee wasn't trying to destroy this nation he wanted to make it better, and he says robert e lee was fighting to own slaves but robert e lee was anti slavery

  2. The United States' westward expansion called "Manifest Density" created the Civil War and it was truly based on States' Rights. States provides more freedoms than the federal government by Constitution. At the time it was unforunately slavery.

    If this nation becomes a dictatorship, the South will gladly once again secede from the Union and fly the Confederate Flag once again. This nation was founded by rebels who were lawyers.

    It won't be chattel slavery but slavery is still alive and well.

    Al Sharpton isn't a man of God one bit. He's just as bad as everybody else.
