    • @The Armchair Historian If you think about it though people like George Washington who were actually pretty knowledgable and humble and helpful to the states had slaves just for the fear of being poor and the fact that everyone else had slaves. The politicians on either side today probably would take no shame in enslaving and torturing people if people like washington would but unfortunately for them they can barely convince people today that racism isn't a thing so they can't reinstate it.

    • @Jkush 1687 True and they would be slaveholders if they hadn't lost the war (I think that was the only thing that didn't go as planned for them since they didn't see Grant turning the tide of the war). I think the difference is that the republican party is basically the democrat party except toned down so that they can still say they support freedom and all that good stuff

  • Will the Senate convict Trump for Seditious libel to overthrow his own government? Sounds far fetched? VP Pence was a minute away from the insurgents capturing him and hanging him was he not? What if the House can show evidence to the facts that on January 6 2021 the insurrectionist were Pawns who Trump and his associates sent to the capital with the full intentions to kill the President of the Senate, VP Pence, so that the official count of Biden having won the election would be postponed. Trump then could declare Martial law and delayed Biden’s Presidency indefinitely Anything less then proving the above; Trump will walk away and it will have been a total waste of America’s time. At least that’s how I see it. Cheers

  • Hi American Historian. By making a broad statement that impeachment of any President is considered to be a political matter; is simply wrong and those who believe this or say this on either side are wrong and weakening their resolve in today’s impeachment trail of Trump before the senate. Will the Senate convict Trump for Seditious libel to overthrow his own government? Sounds far fetched? VP Pence was a minute away from the insurgents capturing him and hanging him was he not? What if the House can show evidence to the facts that on January 6 2021 the insurrectionist were Pawns who Trump and his associates sent to the capital with the full intentions to kill the President of the Senate, VP Pence, so that the official count of Biden having won the election would be postponed. Trump then could declare Martial law and delayed Biden’s Presidency indefinitely Anything less then proving the above; Trump will walk away and it will have been a total waste of America’s time. At least that’s how I see it. Cheers

  • While I will agree that Johnson was racist and sucked as president, I don't think she should've been impeached. The law he broke ended up being declared unconstitutional and that law was passed mostly so the Republicans in congress could impeach Johnson and kick him out of president.

    • ​@Devn, And it wasn't just that, it was also the government’s level of involvement in the economy. And that was really decided during the New Deal. When FDR is president, the Great Depression has crashed the world economy, and the government decided to do something about it. The New Deal caused a major political realignment, which is just the fancy term for party switch. Before this, there were fiscal conservatives and liberals in both parties, they were all over the spectrum. But now, if you believed in a conservative economic policy, you were Republican, and if you were more liberal, you were Democrat. So while Jim Crow was still very much in place, the few black people who were allowed to vote, switched to the Democratic party because those economic policies benefitted them the most. But when it came to social issues, the parties were still very mixed.

  • Its sad because in order to prosecute criminal activity for presidents the language is so vague to make it seem politically motivated. Which then divide a nation even when its the right thing to do. Which there for leads to pardon or them retaining office. No matter what they did wrong. Got it check. Why didn't we fix this issue and why aren't we fixing this issue? No common sense, and a giving altered view killed the cat.

  • To let you know, both parties are corrupted as hell. President Washington even stated that political parties would be the end of this country, given time. He was abso right. So you're absolutely wrong that they bare no resemblance. The Republicans still believe in free trade, free market, right to private property, anti slavery, racial and gender equality, 2nd Amendment rights, and the right to Life Liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. As the democrats believe in centralized government, Socialism (which has never made any nation successful nor has it made any nations people happy), free universal healthcare, which will make our drug research and development go stagnant, and abolishing the 2nd Amendment, 1st Amendment, and the best part, a 75% tax increase on businesses which will make them lay workers off and then relocate to other countries, like china. It already happened before. Look at Michigan. The motor capital of the world, and then they're dirt poor because of the Obama administration. Neither part tnn is trustworthy but I'll go Republican any day of the week over Democrats. They're tyrannical and have committed multiple acts of treason. Biden is on his way to repeating what happened in 1775 by infringing upon the 2nd Amendment. So dont chastise like you're above anyone else when it comes to politics cause you're not. No one is.

  • Over 620,000 Americans died in the Civil War… Isn’t it weird that we’re going to probably surpassed that number of Covid deaths in the next year. Civil War was fought for a lot of reasons and over many years and is considered the bloodiest war in American history and Covid deaths are literally a result of Donald Trump sitting in the White House, lying, playing golf and telling people that this isn’t a real thing.
