In my more than two decades of writing newspaper columns, there have probably been fewer than five times where I felt the need to write a follow-up column in order to respond to the responses of the original work.
This is one of those times.
A few weeks ago, I rightly demonstrated that President Abraham Lincoln destroyed the America created by the Founders and began our long slide into the leviathan welfare state that is 21st century America. Oh, and as a bonus, killed 800,000 Americans in the process.
Afterward, on these pages, the Internet and on talk radio, several called me a racist who supports slavery.
Of course, these accusations are just the nonsensical ramblings of unthinking people. After all, the War for Southern Independence was a fight between two slave-owning nations. How can supporting one side or the other get you labeled as a racist and pro-slavery?
