'the south will rise again' ... LOL ... this time a big difference

Hey Georgia, on my mind. Should have happened 160+ years ago but it is happening now. Black Americans are taking over the reigns of power because they are getting the free access to the vote for the first time in history, thanks to the work of Ms. Stacey Abrams and others really working the working work. And, they are becoming believers in the power of every vote, that their vote matters. Yes it does! Truly amazing sea change in American History. CELEBRATE!!!! The South is rising again and the world likes the changes we are witnessing. Keep the change coming for the Senate elections ....



the south will rise again
A rallying cry used by Confederacy enthusiasts who believe the southern United States is superior. Often, those who use this phrase believe the American Civil War was "about States' rights, not slavery". In fact, the Constitution of the Confederacy was nearly word-for-word identical to the US Constitution, but actually *restricted* States' rights by requiring every State to be a slave State.

Furthermore, there was no "Southern identity" in the United States until abolition became a major political issue, and rebel states saw slavery as more a matter of property rights, not State's rights. The States' rights issue was invented by modern Southern apologists; no real historian takes it seriously.

In short, this is a slogan for southerners who believe they should "take pride in their heritage" even though their heritage includes a legacy of horrifying behavior.
My buddy Jeb told me it's not racist to say "the south will rise again", but I know

1. When the Southern legislatures start voting for Democrats, education and poverty

will be better. Outcomes can't be worse than under Republicans for the last 50 years.

5. Right!!??? It is total opposite world since trump came along.

Loved them some San Francisco and NYC values after all .... hahahahaha. They just love trump, so called telling them 'like it is' because they are so used to hearing abusive language, they all come from dysfunctional families. They just like to hear it not directed at them , makes them feel a great sense of relief, hence their addiction to trump. He relieves their anxieties .... due to childhood traumatic abuse. Strong man (fake) even makes them laugh about the violence and cruelty. See, 'it's not so scary." The whole relationship is pathological. I'm sure this will be studied for years, how trump pulled this off.
