65. Rabid anti-intellectual DUers or Freepers - at the moment it looks eerily similar

Seriously folks, some of the name calling, false associations, and extreme talk is more appropriate on right-wing blogs.

FWIW, I have never lived in the South, I am very anti-redneck, anti-confederate, not religious, and I am admittedly even slightly anti-Southern (but I do like Austin.)

Like Thomas Jefferson, however, I do strongly support the right of citizens to secede for whatever reason if they feel like they are no longer being represented well by their government. Should citizens virtually enslaved by the government of the USSR or Yugoslavia have more right to secession than Americans? Don't be so "conservative", narrow-minded, and reactionary in your thinking.

I have no idea if the Civil War ultimately caused more black suffering than it stopped but I am willing to consider the possibility.

What I do know is that the Civil War was extremely costly in many ways and those costs continue to this day.
