So, another “win” for our government education?

Slavery and the Constitution - and ignorance of history

Only when you consider the older man’s education (you know, when it actually taught actually history and actual civics and not this PC crap we see in the top panel). The South deemed their slaves to be property but wanted them also counted as people for representation.  The North said – ok, if your slaves are mere property (yes, I know I’m REALLY paraphrasing in a hurry here), we’ll count our chairs.

Essentially, that’s how the the 3/5’s compromise came about.

Co-founder of GraniteGrok, my concern is around Individual Liberty and Freedom (and how Government is taking that away from us). My fight, from a Conservative (with small “L” libertarian leanings) and evangelical Christian perspective, is with the Progressives that are forcing a collectivized and secular humanistic future upon us. As TEA Party activist, citizen journalist (and pundit!), my goal is to use the New Media to advance the radical notions of America’s Founders back into our culture again.
