These men sacrificed their lives to save America.
Give me one reason why what they did was bad.
>mfw yanks actually think freeing the slaves was good
Because America was becoming an industrial power. Slavery interfered with that. Letting the south secede would cripple America's ability to become a major economic power because muh resources n shit.
slavery wuddn't christian to be right honest with ya my dude
also they held back the tide of a new capitalist exploitation with their older, dumber, less efficient form of exploitation
yeomans>planters in the american founding mythos
therefore the north sacrificed their lives to save america
therefore all traitors should hang
>the north fought to stop this
Worse than cucks desu.
Gonna need some sauce on that for reasons.
It wasn't a war over slavery, it was a war over states rights. It was basically big government liberalism versus small government conservatism.
>tfw no one even paid attention in history class
>USA in the 19th Century
>Different from state to state
We won your independance for you faggot. And 6 european coalitions 20 years later. And 3 revolutions. And against Russia in Crimea. And other few minor wars. Thats for the 19th century, a really calm warwise speaking for France. But since 15th Century till industrial Revolution, France had always been the terror of Europe. Open a book.
Haha! Hey, don't be so bitter.
How about I make a make you a fresh pot of tea?
The CSA literally did nothing wrong. The north fought a illegal war against the south which ended in an unlawful annexation.
>b-but l-lincoln w-w-was a h-hero
No, he fucking wasn't nor did he give a fuck about niggers.
>coolest flag ever made
>can't fly it cause das racist
"27% of French citizens responded that "they believe there is a God", 33% answered that "they believe there is some sort of spirit or life force", and 40% answered that "they do not believe there is any sort of spirit, God, or life force" This makes France one of the more secular countries in the world."
You might get your wish, if Hillary or Bernie becomes President.
Especially Bernie. Congress won't pass any of his stuff, and he'll have to use executive orders to carry out any of his agendas. That will piss off a lot of people.
An indepemdent CSA realistically could have gone a lot of ways. Probably a rough start due to lack of a centralized government, but I suspecf they'd get on their feet soon enough and get back to business as usual.
Slavery wouldn't last long, though. As the rest of the world modernized, sanctions would keep coming until the South did something with their Negroes. They'd probably free them within the CSA, but depending on how conservative the government is they might ship them back to Africa altogether (the sooner they did it the less opposition they'd face internationally).
The economy would still be heavily agriculture-based for a while, eventually gaining factories and plants as the demand for cotton and crops decreases worldwide with the spread of farming technology to Europe and the colonies. The work would still be significantly labor-intensive and low paying, though, with only a small group running the factories and plants. Colleges would have to be established early and heavily funded for any hope of competing with the USA, which a conservative government starkly opposed to government intervention would likely not do.
Probably the CSA would fail in 30 years max, leaving a huge chunk of the USA years behind the rest of the country and in 2016 they'd still be dealing with counter-cultural revolutionaries and racial tensions, probably a lot of wealth inequality and poverty. So unless the CSA allied with all of the USA's enemies and got help from them, the CSA could never compete.
All people have a right to liberty. Fighting war to end oppression is a noble cause. Only a hypocrite could support overthrowing British tyranny while simultaneously the institution of slavery.
i think they only would have been able to get their shit together if they had won early, had they won after a long drawn out war then i think several states would have seceded from the confederacy
Guns. People attacking aborion centers. Stats about things like reptilians and the position of the Sun in the solar system. The number of sects. Trump. Texan Governors. Open racism.
Most of your problems with the South seem to stem from cultural differences or just plain misconceptions.
I don't know where you get the idea that you, a Frenchman, would be able to accurately describe the South or Southern values.
Let me guess, you're cherry-picking the one, maybe two rich plantation owner ancestor of yours out of a couple dozen otherwise dirt-poor, malnourished faggots who would've resented said foppish dandy faggot?
Dividing the country is bad. Better to have one stronger country than some balkanized excuse of a continent. I know you're a bunch of SJW's but put your personal feelings regarding laws aside and look at the long term success of the US. You can thank the North.
