Ignorant little Piggy. Cotton was the underlying cause of the Civil War, slavery was the excuse you white folks have held onto to, to provide yourselves with some sort of honorable and just reasoning to blackade the South and so forth. The truth of the matter is, SEVEN States had already seceeded from the North prior to Lincoln's election, South Carolina, being as ignorant and late to the party as they are today, came last in December 1860.

Yankees like to hold the belief their fight was slavery, just like GW Bush said his fight was WMDs. The are both straw arguments, the underlying factor was cotton was making the South powerful, and that cotton couldn't be harvested without a great many folks like me to work the gins and fields.

This is the reason so many Americans like you and ancho and cspat and maurice make me ill. You know nothing more than the headline you read and don't dare to look into the root of anything. You are an intellectually lazy person, same as Ancho. he suffers from some latent bully issues from his childhood, you Sir, have no such excuses.

So I will pose these questions:

1. Since the Emancipation proclaimation was signed in Sept 1862, why was it not drafted/signed in Feb 1861 when the Civil War was started at Ft. Sumter?
Almost 2 years after the start..

2. Why did it only free seceeding States and not all slaves? Including slaves in the North or new territories?

3. From Lincolns mouth himself.
"And I further declare and make known, that such persons of suitable condition, will be received into the armed service of the United States to garrison forts, positions, stations, and other places, and to man vessels of all sorts in said service."

So we traded one master for another....


In 1858 Senator James Henry Hammond of South Carolina replied to Senator William H. Seward of New York:

"Without the firing of a gun, without drawing a sword, should they [Northerners] make war upon us [Southerners], we could bring the whole world to our feet. What would happen if no cotton was furnished for three years? . . England would topple headlong and carry the whole civilized world with her. No, you dare not make war on cotton! No power on earth dares make war upon it. Cotton is King."

Hammond, like most white Southerners, believed that cotton ruled not just in the South but in the United States and the world. Many economists agreed. In 1855, David Christy entitled his influential hook Cotton Is King. Cotton indeed drove the economy of the South, affected its social structure, and, during the Civil War, dominated international relations of the Confederacy through "cotton diplomacy."

By 1860, cotton ruled the South, which annually exported two-thirds of the world supply of the "white gold." Cotton ruled the West and Midwest because each year these sections sold $30 million worth of food supplies to Southern cotton producers. Cotton ruled the Northeast because the domestic textile industry there produced $100 million worth of cloth each year. In addition, the North sold to the cotton-growing South more than $150 million worth of manufactured goods every year, and Northern ships transported cotton and cotton products worldwide.

If slavery was the corner stone of the Confederacy, cotton was its foundation. At home its social and economic institutions rested upon cotton; abroad its diplomacy centered around the well-known dependence of Europe…upon an uninterrupted supply of cotton from the southern states.

Frank L. Owsley Jr.

Mississippi, the nation’s largest cotton-producing state, was economically and politically dependent on cotton, as was the entire South. Indeed, it was the South’s economic backbone. When the southern states seceded from the United States to form the Confederate States of America in 1861, they used cotton to provide revenue for its government, arms for its military, and the economic power for a diplomatic strategy for the fledgling Confederate nation.

So... I guess I could provide you with an overwhelming amount of information showing the root cause of the Civil War and you can just simply discount it as false and you go on with your ignorance.. ok then you win I lose.

By the way, you racist fucktard, don't refer to me as Boy....just cause you married some mexican piece of ass doesn't give you a get out of racist jail card, idiot. The way you speak makes me sick.. you don't refer to her as a beautiful woman of Mexican decent, you make a point of singling her out as a full blooded mexican and "her son".

The fact you describe her as Mexican before anything else speaks volumes.

It was financial.
The stories were to rouse.
The stories of Female circumcision nowadays are very similar.
The stories of Japanese people eating babies when really they were freezing and starving, served us well.

You fell for the story piglet.

Peripheral knowledge is always the key.

don't get roused by the propagandist crap.

I see in typical Ancho fashion, you failed to address or attempt to disprove even one of my points. Bravo Anchopig!
