  1. Not to argue or anything, but after First Manassas, the army was too physically exhausted to persue the beaten Federals, and the logistics tail hadn’t caught up with the army yet, Manassas Gap Railroad notwithstanding. Besides, capturing Washington and/or over throwing the Lincoln government wasn’t a part of Confederate ideology or plans. Arguably, it might should of been, but it just wasn’t.

  2. Win or lose the legacy of Trump ought to be the development of an authentic nationalism which would be hostile both to the reactionary right, especially the treasonous Neo-Conservative faction, as well as the lunatic left.The Tea party is far to weak for the job! All the enemy has to do is accuse them of racism and they pissed on themselves in fear and began expelling members right and left. With friends like that who needs enemies. This is what is called bourgeoisie nationalism.

  3. I’m a Tarheel, Mr. Ellis; and I have written my Governor McCrory (he is a nice man who hates idealogical issues) to thank him for having protected my daughter against insane erstwhile men, and to urge him to continue to be brave (unlike Governor Deal of Georgia) against the godforsaken aliens that are trying to overwhelm us, most lately on this issue of bathrooms.

    Yesterday, New York, California, and Vermont all passt travel bans against their folk coming to NC.
    They, as well as, ESPN, FACEBOOK, THE NFL, Lowes (a Tarheel company!) American Airlines, and & Bank of America being the most notable companies threatening us in every way.

    They say they will leave, if we don’t tap-dance to the transgender tune.


    Have a nice day, Mr. Ellis.

  4. Mr. Cintia – we are NEVER going to ‘get this Confederate crap out of our minds’, because it is in our bones.

    We are being held, in bondage by the Yankee Empire, and we WILL come out of it.

    The notion you have that it did not work in 1861-65, means it cannot work now, is utterly fallacious. It workt in 1776.

    BUT, even if it does not work, a thousand times, we’ll keep trying. Why? : because doing right has no end.

    The South will get away – we must get away from Yankee culture, notwithstanding the fact that, as you mention, not all Yankees are out of their minds.

  5. Uh, Robbie, they don’t call it Fakebook for nothing. At least half the people do not exist. Government bots pretending to be people with fake profiles put propaganda on Fakebook to make it seem there is popular support for the government agenda. Those people may not exist at all.

  6. They didn’t have to pursue. Washington DC was not sufficiently defended to prevent its capture. To have your army capture the Capitol would be a huge blow to Lincoln and possibly lead to popular pressure to sue for peace.

  7. True. No doubt whatsoever. Strategically, it makes sense to take D.C., since, at the least, it’s a Southern city. However it wasn’t in the cards simply for ideological reasons.

  8. Yes but that’s where they made their mistake that lost the war, and you’re making the same mistake. By not going North, The Confederates assumed a defensive position and allowed the Union to form new armies to attack and fight in the South. Sherman would not have been able to do his barbaric March to the Sea, if he was defending Northern cities from the Confederates. By being in the North the Union assumes a defensive position and you have the initiative to attack them.

  9. If you get a chance, read “The Confederacy as A Revolutionary Experience” and “The Confederate Nation” both by Emory M. Thomas. The Confederate Nation expounds on the first. They both can be had relatively inexpensively. They’re well worth the effort.

  10. Surprised that NC is still holding up to the PC crowd for our newly enacted state law preventing local governments from passing anti-discrimination rules meant to protect gay, lesbian and transgender people. With all the states and PC organizations/teams/businesses threatening to boycott NC it is starting to really get exciting but then again it just seems like a dream. If they all followed through and did boycott NC and all the liberals left the state why we might even be able to fly the First National and Confederate Battle Flags any time and anywhere we want. The thought of this is even better than secession…but I feel like I am going to wake up any time now when the compromisers bubble to top of NC politics and return all of us to the current reality nightmare…

  11. Um, can you not read? I said people I have known all my life, Chief. Meaning the people on My personal feed from my personal friends list. my neighbors and people who live in my town and who I went to school with and have worked with, etc.

    But what you say is absurd, too.

  12. These boycotts of Southern states never worked in the past. NAACP boycotted South Carolina for C flag issue, the South Carolina beaches were well attended clean and White.

  13. Thank you so much for the encouragement, Mr. Ellis. Of course, Mr. Griffin is right – we will lose some battles, and this one may yet be lost.

    That said, Traditional Tarheels have been pushing back hard at the progressives, since taking the entire legislature and governor’s seat, in 2012.

    While people can seem lackadaisical and dismissive of secession here, they are very motivated to retain our ways.

    Why they would want to do that from within the Yankee Empire is beyond me; but, be that as it may be, this is the route we are currently on.

    The best thing about all this is that it is truly driving our own city-slicker scalwags crazy.

    Just listening to them pine, (because we don’t follow in lock step with Vermont) is worth a zillion dollars.

    Have a blessed day, Mr. Ellis.

  14. I think I might want to move back to the South. I went to University and lived in Tennessee for my best years.

  15. Well, if you feel like you comment, then it is difficult to imagine how you could even consider living away from here?

    The way I feel now, and my wife, as well, I don’t even want to vacation away from The South. It’s the last place, with the exception of it’s very large scalawagged federalist cities, where I feel comfortable with the human air, that circulates around my soul.

    That said – it is my home, and, apparently not yours, so the decision is much more complex for you, no doubt.

    Anyway, Mr. Ellis – I wish you the very best afternoon.

  16. You picked a fine time to leave us Gov Deal,
    With four hungry children and a crop in the field.
    We’ve had some bad times
    Lived through some sad times
    But this time your hurtin’ won’t heal
    You picked a fine time to leave us Gov. Deal

  17. The Liberals went down to Georgia.
    They were lookin’ for a soul to steal.
    They were in a bind ’cause they were way behind.
    They were tryin’ to force a veto with Deal.

  18. Due to the financial Sword of Damocles hanging over our heads, it’s only a matter of time before the dollar is no longer accepted as the global currency. Once that happens, the national crackup is inevitable. The United States will no longer exist as we know it.

    I don’t envision a de jure secessarion there will probably be such chaos in Washington that all authority will devolve to the states until order is restored.

    That said, the nation as a whole isn’t what it was during the first Southern secession. Thanks to various economic mishaps, we have experienced a lot of population migration. The great Northern industrial regions now constitute desolate rust belts.

    A LOT of Yankees have migrated South for employment opportunities and have stayed. I saw this in my own family. I have a lot of Ohio relatives who now live in North Carolina.

    They love it there. I blame Southern Culture. It’s too gracious for its own good.

    So, I’m kinda curious as how a modern day Southern secession would work with all these Yankee transplants.

  19. Do you have by recommendations of good places to live /move to in North Carolina? I ve spent a lot of time in Leftist places like college towns, state capitals, cities with large Black,populations and that s where the action is so I kind of enjoy the battle.

    But it would be nice to live in a sane place.

  20. Mr. Ellis – what I recommend is that you draw up a list of target places, do your research, then take a one week whirlwind trip to the top 6-8 places.

    If you want sophisticated and modern with a multicultural twist, you can go to the Yankeefied cities in our states – Charlotte, Raleigh, Greenville or Asheville.

    These places have different landscape, so, if natural beauty plays a part, and or weather, you will have to compute that.

    Also, would you wish to live right in the thick of these places – or in an old-fashioned Southern town, 20-30 miles away from such a place. That, too, would play a part in the thinking.

    Last, professional opportunities for you.

    One thing i can say to you, NC has had one of the best economies, in this nation, for decades, and our state financial rating is the highest, so come what may, money will be easier here, than in most other places.

    Any more questions? Just ask…
