I was raised with a deep

I was raised with a deep respect for Southern history, particularly surrounding the unfortunate and unnecessary events of the 1860s. I'm a confederate reenactor and have love to learn about the tragic downfall of my ancestors in an invasion by Lincoln's regime. In fact, it was an interview of Ron Paul explaining the truth about Lincoln's motives for war that got me following RP about 3 or 4 years ago.

Since expanding my studies into economics, libertarian values, history beyond the War of Northern Aggression, and especially the role of government through Biblical lenses in light of the Kingship of Jesus Christ and our voluntary subjection to Him, I've become MUCH less nationalistic about my Confederate heritage. I don't always agree with the Jack Hunter ("Southern Avenger" is a bit nationalistic and does not recognize that God is the avenger of all evil), but he must not bend on his attacks of Lincoln.

I hope Rand Paul keeps plugging along and will tell the truth about history/won't be bullied into supporting the history of tyrants.
