    Hindsight is always 20/20. If we look back into the 18th and 19th centuries ...the world of the founders of our nation...we see and international battle ground between Spain, France, and Great Britain. Washington, Jefferson, and Madison were 5th generation slave owners. From a class of people that held all the economic and political power in the South. To a man they disagreed with slavery. But how were they going to end it? Screaming in the streets like today’s liberal historians think they should have? These men would have been hanged by their own class of people. Instead they put in place a system based on constitutional law that would allow for a gradual elimination of slavery. We can’t judge them based on OUR TIME...but we must judge them on their time. They moved as fast as speed could practically allow.

    Now leftist (we have no Democratic Party anymore) want to destroy them, tear down plaques, statues, and rewrite history. Very dangerous.

    Total nonsense

    Slavery was nowhere near extinction. So much so that slave owners preferred treason and war to allowing their slaves a path to freedom.
    Cost us 600,000 lives to get rid of slavery while most nations were willing to just let it go

    Who even knows what you’re talking about.

    I tried to follow along but it makes no sense. The way you skitter along with historical untruths and half truths and out right lies, it’s just bizarre.

    Slavery was on the cusp of extinction no matter how anyone felt about it. Slavery was never going to withstand the industrial revolution. Just like today. Cheap human labor will not survive automation.

    Slavery was on it's way out, that's just a fact but it was over 150 years ago. Waaaaay past time to let it go and get over it

    Automated cotton pickers did not become readily available until the 1930s and cotton was still picked by hand up till the 1950s
    The south was in no hurry to end slavery and created the Confederacy to preserve it

    /---/ It has nothing to do with slavery. Libs don't give a wit about slavery today in Africa and the Middle East. Their goal is to tear down American culture and history the way the Nazi's tried to eradicate everything Polish right down to the birth and death records. If liberals can destroy our Founding Fathers then they can destroy the Constitution which stops them from seizing total power.
