I still think that the South should have won that damn war...not just because I'm from the South but because things would have been a lot better off.
There's a lot of misconceptions about the C.S.A.

Right a bunch of incompetent jackasses who ruined their economy, then drove a country into war should have won. Right.

Ruined the economy. The cotton and farming industry was heavily worked in the south. They ran a good portion of the economy. And they didn't drive the country into a war, the government taxed the right hell out of the south, putting most smaller farms and ranches into debt. They seceded to get away from that. Calling them incompetent or jack asses just makes you an idiot.

It always amazes me how "Southern Pride" still survives. They have nothing to be prideful of.

Uhh-huh...and on what grounds are they incompetent and ruined their economy?
Furthermore, how did they "drive the nation into war"?

The cash crops industry was on a downturn in the 1850s. Their response was to vastly increase supply of said cash crops. This caused a complete crash of the industry by the 1860s. Instead of acknowledging their way of life as unsustainable they turned to the government, and stirred **** . After losing (and assassinating the only man to call of leniency for them) they still cry about the injustices they supposedly faced, while creating the greatest lies imaginable to cover their asses. What ever they got, they deserved.

But keep believing they're a crusading force for state's rights if you want.

I'm guessing slavery would've continued if the South had won, I don't see good reason they should have won. I am from the south, by the way.

It would have continued, but eventually would have died out due to it becoming inefficient. Besides, only the rich had slaves by that time. Most of them just fought for their country, and wanted to be represented by people who were in similar situations.

I'm not saying it's bad they lost, just that it wouldn't be as bad as everybody thinks. Also, as you know (since you're Southern) both sides in those days ******* sucked ass.

Actually, the Southerners weren't racists. They had planned to introduce them gradually into society so there'd not be any negative repercussions. The British did that to their credit,, they introduced them back to society and look at the black people of England compared to the black people of America, American blacks are a hell of a lot worse. That's because they were thrown into society and Lincoln was like "Good luck, assholes." Imagine being put into slavery in an alien world, there was a lot of aliens that thought you were inferior. Then one day you were just thrown into alien life with no job, no decent understanding of the language, and no respect.

Southerners actually treated blacks very well, you can look at instances where blacks were put into the military of the South and they ate in the same quarters, fought in the same ranks, and had the same respect. Then you look at the Yankees tossing blacks into the Army and the officers put them into separate divisions and looked down upon them, then the average white units got into fights and even killed them.

Source, or shut the **** up. Biggest load of **** I've seen since the last davidson post.
User avatar #65 to #34 - dwarfman (09/26/2013) [-]
LOL I ask for sources you provide southern pride sites? Really bro?
User avatar #68 to #65 - unncommon (09/26/2013) [-]
I never knew that 'listverse' and 'libertyclassroom' were "southern pride"? And maybe if you looked at the sources you'd learn something new.
Regardless of the intention of making the websites they're factually accurate, you should check sources.
On a side-note there were more where that blank space is. I had 6, two of which "southern pride" sites.

Never ceases to amaze the lengths the defeated will go to attempt to prove they were innocent. "It's on the internet and well written! It must be factual!"

You asked for sources, you got sources.
Now you're complaining because I have you sources?
Usually when someone's losing something they fall back to emotion and away from logic. When you argue with emotion you're either insulting someone or looking for sympathy. This tactic usually works on women, not on I, however.

Anyways, I've made my point and I've made it quite efficient. I've got better things to do. (P.s., you might want to do some research on debating, you may have had a good point to make...but you didn't make it. Read this poster and it might help you make a more valid argument next time.)

Don't post that picture when you're 						************					. I asked for sourcework you provided me bias sources, run by bigger idiots than you. There are dozens of sites with essays, text books and the like (Such as Ebsco) instead you give me"Southern Pride the Confederacy will rise again!" There is no emotion to this, and you ignored my explanation of the destruction of their economy. They knew their way of life was unsustainable but made it a political issue as they were afraid. Nor does this have anything to do with black folks, it is the problem of an incompetent Noble class running society. They pushed their nation into war for selfish reasons, and 625,000 dead. So again: 						****					 the south, 						****					 their pride, 						****					 them for destroying themselves.

I'm not disagreeing, and actually agree with you a lot, but the south was Democratic at that time period.

I know, it totally was. But that picture is the only one I can find in my reaction folder with the rebel flag... ******* thing cleaned out on me last week.
