Libertarian Regional Message Board
I'll give Hayes credit for ending Reconstruction, but beyond that my knowledge of him is a little shaky. As for Lee, he was a military genius. The side he chose in a conflict that divided half of the country shouldn't obscure that fact.
^ Indeed he was. I often wonder how long the war would have run had he accepted Lincoln's offer to head up the Northern armies.
I think the war would have been over quicker had Lee been commanding, partly because he had respect for the Southern people and their property (unlike Generals such as Sherman). The majority of Southerners were not seperatists or slave owners. The overwhelming majority was not involved in the attack on Harper's Ferry and would have had no reason to get involved had northern troops not burned down their farms, their towns, etc. Once that happened, they, like any other person, were going to defend themselves and that's why I think the war went on as long as it did.
^ I agree!
So ... anyone wanna hazard a guess on when the financial system is going belly-up? I'm predicting within the next 60 days.
It would have beena lot better for Virginia (and the South generally) if Lee had been the commander of the United States army.
However, one must be careful to to confuse "seperatists" with "slave owners" - that may have been true in 1861, but it is not true today. The modern Federal government really is a vast unconsitutional obsenity - it is not "racist" to be opposed to it. And secession may (at the end) be the only way.
Desperaclitus - the madness of creating more and more money (to prop up the credit bubble financial system) has gone on and on.
It does HIDDEN damage (for example a lot of the vast inequality that the left hypocritically complain about, is caused by the monetary expansion - the credit bubble financial system).
But will it formally collapse?
God forgive me - for I hope it does, even though I know that a collapse will cause terrible suffering.
For society (not only in the United States - but around the Western world) is being more and more corrupted every day.
Only a formal collapse of the bubble will stop this - stop things getting more and more distorted.
But in the next 60 days?
Perhaps - but I just do not know.
I agree. I was using the term as it would have been used then.
As for the fiancial collapse, I think if the various scandals going on right now were to lead to impeachments and resignations of Obama and Holder or the trial and imprisonment of 2016's chosen one Hillary Clinton, it could do major damage to the stock market. Not sure how lasting that damage would be, though.
Speaking of 2016, what do you guys think of Rand Paul? I voted for Gary Johnson last year mainly because Ron Paul wasn't the nominee and I don't play the "lesser of two evils" game. As for Rand he seems like a good guy and when he's right, he's spot on. The problem is that he's not libertarian enough enoughfor my taste on certain issues. So do we vote for him hoping his father taught him well and that he's just saying what he has to say to be electable or do we vote for whoever is nominated on the Libertarian ticket? I'm convinced that, despite his flaws, he would be the best President we've had in decades, but if there is a better choice on a third party candidate, that's who I'm going for.
^ No matter who we vote for, it's a crapshoot, but I am convinced that Rand Paul should replace Obama.
The financial system will collapse. Of that I have no doubt whatsoever. But I don't expect it will happen on nearly that short a timescale.
As for 2016, I plan to wait until at least until late 2014 to worry about it, but I do like Rand Paul.
