    Go wander around Gettysburg, Spotsylvania, Fredricksburg, Antietam or a few other Civil War battlefields. Visit Andersonville.

    See up close and personal what --and who -- was lost to keep this country intact. People suffered. They died. Their families stuggled to carry forward  so that we would inherit a country indivisible.

    Ron Paul is a racist idiot who is dog whistling to a certain segment of the base.

    If our forefathers and foremothers could keep this country intact through Civil War, through panic and Depression, I think we can certainly manage to fend off a few racist blow-hards whose panties are bunched up that they, like Jeff. Davis, are people whose time has come and gone and will be little more than a passing mention in history books.

    I'm sorry, but the "let them go!" attitude is nearly as infuriating as those who claim they want to secede. It disregards the sacrifices made to keep the union intact and even more so, it utterly ignores the good work being done by progressives in those states right now.

    So if you get hit by a bus tonight, would you be satisfied with how you spent today, your last day on earth? Live like tomorrow is never guaranteed, because it's not. -- Me.
