    N. American Indians would war on those Indian tribes in Mexico too. Taking captives/Slaves. Also Vice-Versa.


    The Black Leftists that are always making an issue of Slavery will only take their whining and patheticness to the US and the Euros. No where else will the attempt to pull that $#@! about reparations. Knowing exactly what it will bring them.

    If the election was stolen should we allow the usurper to keep the prize.

    There must be a statue of limitations to cover past errors.

    We fought a bloody, long war that freed all slaves. The Democrats resisted all the way until the 1960s.

    No. We are not responsible for our grandfathers' crimes.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.


    I pledge allegiance to the Constitution as written and understood by this nation's founders, and to the Republic it created, an indivisible union of sovereign States, with liberty and justice for all.

    I get what you're saying but I think we have to judge people by the time in which they lived. In their time period, it was not considered a wrong until it was against the law.

    Virtually everyone recognizes it as wrong today, but that's today.

    The idea that someone, somewhere has to pay for our current misfortune is what's causing the problems. We have child labor laws because we now recognize forcing little ones to slave for hours for pennies is wrong. Certainly some business owners got quite a leg up from that practice, but that doesn't mean any "rebalancing" is now due to the descendants of the former child workers.

    Life doesn't work that way. Or, it shouldn't. It cheapens the individuality of life.

    Hypothetically, if your grandfather's land got stolen by the neighbors at the point of a barrel 150 years ago and he was left penniless but the neighbor became wealthy; do you think there'd ever be a time that it should just "be forgotten"?
    Squatter's rights laws did virtually just that. But no, we can't go back and change the past.

    People who continuously live in the past and blame others for their misfortune will never be happy until they change their mindset.
