    And that dried up when they stopped transporting slaves.........you can try to deny it all you want...none of those countries had the same problem with slavery that we had...because of those very countries...they did not put African slaves in their own countries, they did not have millions of slaves and an entrenched slave owning culture.....

    They passed laws that stopped the sale and transport of slaves...whoop tee do.......

    So did we. 1808. Whoop tee do. But as far as the practice of owning people, we didn't do it until 1865 -- after everybody except Cuba and Brazil, both of whose colonial 'parents' had already abolished it.

    Yes.....they passed a law ending the transport of slaves and in their colonies...not one of them had millions of African slaves in their actual countries...they had no skin in the game ..........from across the world they passed a law without having to deal with any consequences...how brave of them......

    Nothing in that torrent was about the "founding fathers". It was entirely about this:

    So that got corrected. Hence the timeline, because clearly we did less than most --- not "more". That was a myth bust.

    Meanwhile, back at the founding fathers --- yes, they were Liberals and designed this government based on Liberalism. With the self-contradiction that slavery wasn't done away with immediately, which led to the inevitable tensions for the proverbial four scrore and seven years.

    And then the Founding Principals were supported and promoted and slavery was ended...by the Republican party....

    I've never claimed they were "leftys" or even "lefties". Ever.

    I've always said they were Liberals. Which is true.
