so the republican party platform was not to raise tariffs? and that is not a grievance? really? Your own chart betrays your logic. From 1860 to the mid late 1860's the tariffs spiked. This was not a result of war and recovering cost or paying for costs of war...this tariff was debated since 1857 when there was no war....and was what the Republican/whig platform was about. Lincoln was a Henry Clay Whig.....it wasnt even a secret what they were planning to do if they won. It's ok to change your opinion and not "lose" a debate...it's just adjusting your perception some. it's OK. When i had poor information on export taxes...i listened...researched more...and changed my perspective..it didnt mean anything expect i had bad info. i survived.
I won this so-called debate like 5 days ago, from that time on it's been school for you. We are not talking about 1860 to the mid late 1860s, we are talking about the purported unfair tariffs that the Walker Tariff exposed as an extraordinary fallacy. Yes, it was debated since 1857, and if you would have read it correctly you would have been shocked beyond belief until you were consternated that the Tariff of 1857 lowered rates by 15-25% from the already low Walker Tariff.
