A debate is going on in the Wichita Kansas newspaper. It began as comments to an anti-Confederate flag article by a black newspaper writer. Posted below is one of my responses to another anti-Confederate resident of that area. Below my response is his comment which prompted this reply. You may post comments in this debate if you desire to do so.

Smitty, you lack understanding. We love the United States of America. What do we hope to accomplish by proving that the North (United States of America) committed treason against the U.S. constitution and bill of rights ? We hope to teach Confederate principles to the American public and thus prevent the self destruction of America. Confederate principles are the same as those of America’s founding fathers who were primarily Southern gentlemen from Virginia namely–Limited Constitutional Federal Government, States’ Rights, Resistance to Tyranny, and Christian Values and Principles. If not for Southerners the constitution and bill of rights as we know them would not exist. They were the product of Southern minds. They represent "Government of the people, by the people, and for the people".

When the North committed treason against the constitution and bill of rights 1860-1865 under the American dictator Abraham Lincoln, the federal government usurped powers America’s founding fathers never intended for the federal government to have. States Rights were given a crushing blow and the original constitution and bill of rights was broken.

Now America’s federal government is a bloated out of control monster that is heading for self destruction. America is experimenting with socialism, globalism, and secular humanism and is spending money like a drunk sailor. Every empire in the history of the world has eventually self destructed. America is heading down the same path the Roman empire went down 2000 years ago. Excess immigration (slaves), corrupt government, and destruction of family values destroyed Rome and the same three are destroying America.

The only hope for America is to return to the principles and values established by America’s founding fathers which are the principles the Confederacy was founded upon.

The North cared nothing for the constitution and bill of rights when it stood in the way of power and wealth. The same is true today. The illegal ratification of the 14th amendment destroyed States’ Rights and gave the federal government unlimited power and control. The states were reduced from sovereign political entities to little more than glorified administrative districts.

Smitty, will you help us save the America that we all love or will you bury your head in the sand and refuse to understand that a return to Confederate principles (principles and values of America’s founding fathers) is the only hope for the salvation of America?

Prior to 1860 America was a Constitutional Federal Republic. Treason on the part of the North changed America to a Democracy with Socialist leanings. Over the years since, through the New Deal of FDR in the 1930’s and the "Great Society" of Lyndon Johnson in the 1960’s America became a Socialist Democracy. Now America stands on the verge of becoming a Totalitarian Socialist police state.

Will America lose it’s sovereignty to the New World Order–a Socialist United Nations?

Probably eventually, yes, unless we can educate you, Smitty, and millions of other Americans so that you understand the meaning of Constitutional government and why many thousands of Confederates fought to preserve it.
