Half of the North American territory should be Spain since before it was New Spain and the people were deceived by promoting a campaign against the Spaniards to dominate the American territory and the political landscape of the time lying and discrediting the great works of Hispanidad. The Spaniards are good people by nature and we forgive this motherfuckers who did that, but we will never forget that betrayal that we are currently paying for Latin America and Spain. We will see each other in a few generations of cursed traitors to the motherland and to the Motherland of Spain because the lies always come to light and one day you will have to look back and it will be then when you pass the shame for all the lies that you have transmitted to your children for generations and Then you will understand your true origin.

Never forget. Abe Lincoln is the second worst president ever, right behind Woodrow Wilson. He suspended the writ of habeus corpus for the first and only time in our country's history. He's a tyrant who will forever be remembered as the man who ended slavery, although he did no such thing.

It was not about love of northerners for black people but they needed labor force for their factories. So it was not about morale but economic interest.

12:33 and Florida said that slavery is good because then we can buy more cocaine and meth then start killing more people and if we run out of people we will stick knives in heads of alligators then we will buy more bud light with weed and pray the best graystillplays and we will teach our children and citizens like a handful of crap then start snorting more cocaine and more good things then burn in a temperature of 564627535738647947372 degrees Fahrenheit
