Yet, the Dems control by social freebies, what is the difference......it is part of enslavement. Once a person stops supporting them the government no longer wants them. The Democrat party tried to stop the Gays for Trump movement......are you speaking out against this? Once a women no longer supports abortion she is labeled as misguided.......is this freedom to decide for ones self?

Dems most hated group - those "non college educated" self sufficient whites that vote republican. Dems have no use for them...hence why them lacking a degree is supposed to equal "stupid".

I want, and please this is serious stuff, no kidding etc., to offer this advice. We, as well as many other nations, fought a great and terrible war against Facism in Europe (Germany and Italy) and against Japan in the Pacific. It was a brutal, horrible time - as bad as slavery. Millions died brutal deaths, millions were enslaved and worked to death. Others tortured endlessly.

However, we have (and it didn't take very long), put all that in the past. We enjoy solid and friendly relations with all three aggressors and are, in fact, Allies, pledged to our common defense. We drive, with great pride, Beamers and Benz's, Ferrari's and Lamborghini's, Toyota's and Lexus and etc., I haven't bought a non-Japanese vehicle since 1977. I would love to have a Beamer or even an Audi.

We, as a nation, could have followed your game plan, and steep in the evils of the past, or as we actually did, shake hands, shake-off any animosity and go forward with head held-high, reveling in our new-found friendships, and the benefits they bring.

For your own good, follow the example that the WWII generation gave us decades ago. Cast off the eternal whining about the past, forget about it for it will, and indeed cannot, help you at all. It is as useless as the runway behind your aircraft struggling to get airborne.
I don't take advice. So that's where I stopped reading your post. You're in no position to advise me. You need advice yourself.

At least slaves got a chance to live, be baptized and go home to God after leading as good a life as possible. These murdering, soulless liberals don't even give babies that much humanity.
Slave owners can't be good people by definition. They were all evil. They should've all been executed during and after the war. Their families too.

And baptizing slaves into Christianity might be the worst of all the evils they did. That alone makes slave owners worthy of a painful death.

You judge people of that era by standards of this era. In law that is call Ex Post Facto, is illegal and immoral, and paints you thoroughly as such. And remember slavery was a world-wide institution, practiced as much by one race as another - a fact you and your HATE can't get your head around. Mankind could not have advanced without it.

You're in no position to help me. You're just not doing well enough in life for me to respect your perspective.

Plus you're not black. LMAO...you even admitted that you can't afford a BMW.

I've already owned 5. Stop it.

America was a Christian dominated nation back then far more so than now. FAR more!

So was the Bible different back then?
