  •  Some historical background in South Carolina (6+ / 0-)

    there is a recent diary "Mything the Point"  that does a wonderful job of exposing the runup to the Civil war and the disconnect with what the current crop of 'rebs' believe(The War of "Northern Aggression" ) and their actual role to split the Union and destroy America.

    Slavery, the  total exploitation of man by man , the supremacy of the owner over the bodies, especially of women and their total subjection to the (male) master was critical and important to the white elites in the Palmetto State.  back three hundred years ago, in the Civil War and now.

    This is but reaffirmation of the way that state rolls.

    For all those inside S.C. upset about the role of outside groups and fundraising, simply look at the ready acceptance and distortions of our democracy fully embraced when it is their tribe, their grouping's domination at stake and how they are willing to buy and sell and distort the value of the vote to maintain their "superiority".

    •  'Mything the Point' is very informative. (0+ / 0-)

      'War of Northern aggression' is a hoax term.
