This is why Lincoln wasn't the great president all are trained to believe. If we had not fought the Civil War, slavery would have ended just as quickly as it did. And there would have been no reason to support it. The war just made people resist the changes.

9:27: WHAT???...You've got to be kidding!!!...We are still fighting slavery in this country...If you don't believe it, travel through the Old Confederacy some time...It's not the same slavery as we had before 1865, but in other forms of suppression.

Today's slavery is in a different form. It means you can never own anything and you are not entitled to the fruits of your labor.
