Subject: RE: BS: history of USA Presidential elections...
Yeah, okay, LH... Maybe???

But what I am becomin' icreasingly uncomfortable with is just how many revisonists are on the governemnt payrolls these days... This scares the Hell out of me...

I 'mean, they have allready revised the reasons for the Iraq invasion so many times it's hard to keep up but whatever the last reason was is the "real one"... We din't have that with Vietnam... No, it was always the "domino theory" from day one un til that fatefull day when folks were trying to get on that last helicopter in Saigon...

Now we have had at least a half a dozen reason for we invaded Iraq and being the cynic I am, I am fearfull that the revisionist will somehow figure out out to forge a "victory" out of what is probably the US's greatest defeat...

That's what I mean by mytholgy... Mythology ain't history... Who is to say that Lincoln won the "Civil" War??? Look around you and look at the Southern Stategy... Some wars take years, generations or centries to get sorted out... I believe the "Civil" war is one of them wars...

Appomatox might one day just be looked upon as a manuver???

Yeah, I know this is a strange concept but if you look at the presidentail elections foing back, ahhhhh, forver, the Southern Strategy has elected more presidents than anything else...

When folks say "The South will rise again", especially here in the South, they mean it...

As fir Nam, had Keenedy lived he would have had to take the loss... KInda like a baseball pitcher who turnes a losing game over to a relief pithcer... Lyndon Johnson didn't loose the Vietnam War... Richard Nixon didn't loose it either... The war was lost on Day One...

Iraq was lost on Day One...

The Civil War was Lost on Day One...

The Mexican War and the Spainish American Wars weren't really wars in the same respect as the Civil War, Nam and Iraq... Those were nutin' but imperialist bullying...

That's the way this ol' hillbilly sees it, anyway...
