By The Dawn's Early Light...

As Robert E. Lee watched Richmond fall, he must have known that the true essence of the United States of America was being destroyed before his very eyes. For those of us who have grown up in the US, it is apparent that there is a dual psyche which even the blindest man cannot deny. The Confederacy represented a moral America; one that was devoted to the freedom of enterprise and the strength of individualism. The Union represents the dawn of evil - an inevitable entrance into the modern age. I don't know whether to call the Union the beginning of Liberalism in the US...perhaps not.

The defeat of the Confederacy left America in a sorry state. It was run by abolitionists who did not have the country's best interests at heart. The center of US morality was in the Confederate states and when they were defeated it meant that morality was governed by a more sinister force.

America's goal should be to never allow another force to dictate terms. America must govern unilaterally and without opposition. If the Confederacy had won the war I wouldn't even have to say this.
