Isn't it obvious, the blacks were reliant on northern intervention for their safety and freedom
And don't you think that the fact that "blacks were reliant on northern intervention for their safety and freedom" means something suspicious about the CSA?

No, the blacks would of been free in at most 30 years anyway so they'd be fine, the industrial revolution would of made slavery obselete.
You still haven't explained how the South is weakened by blacks being able to vote.

Even accepting that (and reasonable people don't), it means, "oh well, only 30 years of slavery, it's nothing to write about"? Especially for those alive at the time.

Do you even read what you write?

Confederate deaths were about 260,000 of which 93,000 were killed in combat, while Union deaths were 360,000 of which 110,000 deaths were in combat. Disease was the major cause of death in the civil war. Out of 620,000 deaths, over 400,000 were from diseases.

Were all those dead worth it, was freeign the slaves earlier (not the real cause of the war) worth the loss of life, I say no it was not.

Well, if the South was so keen on saving lives, it could have just, you know, not seceded.

The South had to do the right thing in fighting federal thuggery.

Or the south could have abolished slavery instead of trying to expand it into the western territories. Also, You still haven't explained how giving blacks the vote weakened the south.

No, you asserted their votes weakened the south. Being part of the southern political structure, how are blacks weakening the south.

So when you dislike the politicies of your duly elected government you have a right to secede? Well, I disagree with my city's laws forbidding public nakedness.

I hereby declare secession from it and establish the Free Republic of Dangling Man-Parts! All hail the dong, symbol of our nation!

O Mentula!
Our beloved and native part!
True patriot love in all thy sons command.
With glowing hearts we see thee rise,
The Big Dong strong and free!
So long and thick,
O Mentula, we stand on guard for thee.
God keep our dick so glorious and free!
O Mentula, we stand on guard for thee.
O Mentula, we stand on guard for thee.

I protest the sexism inherent here, and demand the women also be naked.
