Really? You got that from one song? Normally, KS, I look to you for intelligent argument. Very disappointing.
I quoted the lyrics accurately. Innes's words, not mine. And considering it seems to be extremely popular with Lost Causers then what are we to assume except that they agree with the words and the sentiment?

That's your response? No contrite you're right, that was beneath me? OK, you quoted the song accurately. As to it being "extremely popular with 'Lost Causers'" there I'm going to ask for proof. Without it, I expect you to admit to your tantrum and apologize. By the way to which "Lost Causer" were you referring?

On the other hand the murderous Battle Hymn of the Republic appears to be extremely popular among unionist revisionists.

My favorite is Battle Cry of Freedom. "The Union forever, hurrah boys hurrah. Down with the traitors and up with the star."
When it comes some contributors here I prefer these lyrics........

Three hundred thousand Yankees
Stiffen in Southern dust
We got three hundred thousand
Before they conquered us
They died of Southern fever
And Southern steel and shot
And I wish it was three million
Instead of what we got

You will certainly have a long wait on the later. As for the former I stand by my beliefs based on my time spent watching Lost Causers on this forum

Then it sounds as if you are getting educated too. Nothing wrong with lost causers. We learn something about those that keep calling us that. :thumbsup:

Funny thing about Randolph. He was educated in the North. Spent the post rebellion years earning a good living as a lawyer and writer in Baltimore, so I guess he didn't have any real problems being 'conquered'. Certainly not enough to generate a desire to leave that 'fair land of freedom' that he didn't give a **** about. He hated the Constitution, yet was a lawyer. That "Yankee Nation" he hated let him go home unmolested after he waged war against it. His whole poem is venting his hatred and whining that those vile Yankees beat him.

Similar to those words you posted.

Then, by all means, feel free to post them. I would like to see at least a majority of these "Lost Causers" to whom you refer, who have specifically endorsed the song and echoed these lyrics. Let me refresh you as to the specific statement I challenged: "And considering it seems to be extremely popular with Lost Causers then what are we to assume except that they agree with the words and the sentiment?" You stated that "I'm a Good Ol' Rebel" is "extremely popular." Upon what do you base this claim? I look forward to your cites or the apology.

I may well have to wait for an apology, but I'm a patient guy. If you cannot prove your contention, I know that you'll be man enough to admit it and apologize.
