Well how stupid is the TeaParty? ,part deux.

I may be repeating myself, but this is about the American civil war. The one in 1861.
And yes it was about slavery, no matter how the looneytics try to gloss over it.

The vast majority of southern families did not own slaves.
The slaves were owned by the wealthy, the businessmen, and the plantation owners.
They convinced tens of thousands of southern men to go fight and possibly die, for the wealthy's right to own slaves.
That is my connection with the TeaParty.
These southern men were fighting against their own best interests.
If it wasn't for the slaves these business people would have been forced to hire employees.
