Confederate flag not racist The Confederate flag is not racist. Various groups have distorted the real meaning of the Confederate flag. The Confederate flag represents all Southern, and even Northern, Confederates regardless of race or religion and is the symbol of less government, less taxes and the right of the people to govern themselves. It is flown in memory and honor of our Confederate ancestors and veterans who willingly shed their blood [...]

Cato's "Neo-Confederate"! Posted by Thomas DiLorenzo at February 6, 2008 In a very learned and thoughtful essay, Jim Powell explains the downside of Lincoln's war, something that has never before been discussed by the Neo-Lincolnites at the Cato Institute. I've made most of the same points in my writings, as has Tom Woods. Jim's days of being associated with Cato may be limited. But read his books, FDR's Folly, Wilson's War, and [...]

New York, Ohio, Vermont and Illinois were honored [...]
