Posted on 10/18/2020 6:12:27 AM PDT by blueyon
I am opposed to the Democratic Party, and I will tell you why. Every State that seceded from the United States was a Democratic State. Every ordinance of secession was drawn by a Democrat. Every man that endeavored to tear the old flag from the heaven that it enriches was a Democrat. Every enemy this great Republic has had for twenty years has been a Democrat. Every man that shot Union soldiers was a Democrat. Every man that starve union soldiers and refused them in the extremity of death a crust was Democrat. Every man that tried to destroy this nation was a Democrat. Every man that loved slavery better than liberty was a Democrat. That man that assassinated Abraham Lincoln as a Democrat. Every man that sympathized with the assassin every man glad that the noblest President ever elected was assassinated was a Democrat. Every man that impaired the credit fo the Union States; every man that swore we would never pay the bonds; every man that swore we would never redeem the greenbacks was a Democrat. Every man that resisted the draft was a Democrat. Every man that wept over the corpse fo slavery was a Democrat. Every man that cursed Lincoln because the issued the Proclamation of Emancipation the grandest paper since the Declaration of Independence every one fo them was a Democrat.

In before the Confederacy Amen Corner.
Great article !
In other words,the Rats suck.
Dave Barton is an old friend. Wall Buuilders is perhaps the best repository of original preserved (non+revisionist) American History in the world, including pre US and pertaining European docs.
They also have a large volume of original Confederate documents, including detailed information of Black and Native American owned slaves, and other details.
Lots of good stuff.
The party of slavery, secession, segregation, socialism, and sodomy.
Yes. History in it's entirety is important. Some fought for the right to secede. They believed in federalism.
No. I'm not a southerner, I just like history.
What is the date of that document? I would guess 1870s or 1880s.
Yes they believed in states rights but. yet they did not believe in individual rights. I.E. the Twenty Negro act of 1862. Then they passed it from twenty down to 15. Then the conscription act...
So which, according to our founding document was of the most importance?
Chief Justice Roger Tawney, a Democrat, infamously stated that "the black man had no rights a white man was bound to respect". He was joined by six other justices, all Democrats and/or appointed by Democrat presidents.
The two dissenters were Whigs. One of them resigned his position on the court in protest of the decision.
Whigs and anti-slavery Democrats went on to found the Republican party.
Here is also good stuff I’ve picked up over the last fifty years.
The tribes that made or were negotiating treaties with the Confederacy.
Cherokees, Creeks, Choctaws, Comanches, Wachitas, Kiowas, Pottawattamies, Chickasaws, Osages,
Seminoles, Senecas, Shawnees, Quawpaws.
The South also had Indian agents operating all throughout the High Plains and mountain region stirring up other tribes such as the Sioux, Cheyenne, Arapaho, Navajo and Apaches to make war on the Union at that time.
Their traditional enemies, Pawnee, Kaw, Osage (well, part of them) remained loyal to the Union.
“There is little doubt that the recent outbreak in the Northwest (Minnesota Uprising) has resulted from the efforts of secession agents operating through Canadian Indians and fur-traders.”—Mr Giddings, US Counsul-general in Canada
The three authors of the Federalist Papers (Madison, Hamilton, and Jay) that explained the Constitution to the American people also voted for their states' ratifications of the Constitution that included statements saying states could withdraw from the Union and resume their own governance. Those ratifications were accepted by the other states.
Hamilton and Jay were Federalists - the "strong central government" philosophical ancestor of Lincoln's Republican Party. Madison was originally a Federalist and changed allegiance to the Democratic-Republican Party of Thomas Jefferson. That party is the ancestor of today's Democrat Party.
The Federalists fell out of favor with the public for a couple of reasons. Despite the First Amendment, they prosecuted newspaper editors and writers for criticizing the President, and they pushed for the secession of the Northeastern states.
Secession was not prohibited by the Constitution. Seven of the thirteen original states had either said they could resume their own governance or proposed a Tenth Amendment like statement that reserved powers not prohibited by the Constitution to the states respectively or to the people. Madison proposed what became the Tenth Amendment to Congress. It was ratified by the states and became part of our Bill of Rights.
You might be interested to know that the Tenth Amendment was cited by South Carolina in their December 20, 1860 Declaration of the Immediate Causes Which Induce and Justify the Secession of South Carolina from the Federal Union (my red bold below):
By this Constitution, certain duties were imposed upon the several States, and the exercise of certain of their powers was restrained, which necessarily implied their continued existence as sovereign States. But to remove all doubt, an amendment was added, which declared that the powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States, respectively, or to the people. ... This limitation left the whole remaining mass of power subject to the clause reserving it to the States or to the people, and rendered unnecessary any specification of reserved rights.
In the Tenth Amendment, respectively means individually. Where in the Constitution was the power given to the central government or to states that opposed the secession of other states the power to stop a state from seceding?
I abhor today's Democrats. They are basically corrupt.
Every man that starve union soldiers and refused them in the extremity of death a crust was Democrat.
Perhaps you are not familiar with the treatment of Confederate soldiers in Northern prisons. The North with all its supplies had prisons whose death rates closely approached that of Andersonville. For starters, I suggest you read the book, Immortal Captives, The Story of Six Hundred Confederate Officers and the United States Prisoner of War Policy, by Mauriel Phillips Joslyn, copyright 1996.
Those that you are talking about are the 6% that owned slaves and controlled government. Then, as now, there were those who didn’t pay attention. It’s a shame there wasn’t a “Walk Away” movement in 1860.
“Chief Justice Roger Tawney, a Democrat, infamously stated that “the black man had no rights a white man was bound to respect”.”” (sic)
Your use of this quote shows why President Trump’s effort to encourage the teaching of history is so important.
Justice “Tawney” was not in sympathy with the concept in the quote; he was stating what he believed was the intent of the founding fathers - and he provided documentation to support his reasoning. Six of the other nine justices signed onto the Scott decision.
The beauty of the U.S. Constitution was the provision that it could be amended peacefully. There was never a need for a president to use the military to violently overthrow the original pro-slavery U.S. Constitution.
This is the one line I do not agree with..
“Every man that starve union soldiers and refused them in the extremity of death a crust was Democrat”
although true to an extent, the POW camps, if that is what is being referred to here, were abhorrent on both sides. Lots of blame to go around on that point.
That there wasn’t a “walk away” movement should tell you something.
Why the Republican party allowed someone like him to be their public face (and even to nominate James G. Blaine for President at one of the conventions) I don't know.
I met David at a restaurant’s neighboring table. I started talking to him and was amazed that he knew as much as he did. We went heavily into our Constitution and history. It was a pleasure.
Later that evening I attended a business meeting and there he was, the main speaker.
I loved it. You just don’t meet people like that on the street.
