The Senate Vote on Health Care and South Carolina Secession

Democrats were on a Mission from God it appears One hundred forty nine years ago too.

The irony that this occurred on practically the same date. I have a feeling this vote will go down into the really bad category too.

This part struck me
The delegates] were the cream of their world. Ninety percent of them owned at least one slave; over 60 percent owned at least twenty; over 40 percent owned fifty or more; and 16 percent owned a hundred or more. No other southern secession convention would approach this mass of wealth, unknowingly stepping toward class suicide.

So needless to say smart folks can make missteps.

Interesting article though about the religious undertones of the South Carolina Convention
