    Note to the DUmmies...

    Democrats are the party of slavery and obstruction of civil rights.

    Republicans abolished slavery...freed slaves and passed civil rights legislation.

    Your political party OWNS slavery.

    Liberalism Is The Philosophy Of The Stupid

    To Achieve Ordered Liberty You Must Have Moral Order As Well

    The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

    The 21st century. The age of Smart phones and Stupid people.

    It is said that branches draw their life from the vine. Each is separate yet all are one as they share one life giving stem . The Bible tells us we are called to a similar union in life, our lives with the life of God. We are incorporated into him; made sharers in his life. Apart from this union we can do nothing.

    Is forced prison labor 'slavery' under color of the law?

    Last edited Fri Jun 22, 2012, 11:19 AM USA/ET - Edit history (2)

    A thread on DU asked whether Repigs would bring back slavery if they gained full control of all 3 branches of government.

    http://www.democraticunderground.com/1002841902

    Several DUers responding to that thread argued that the current prison system with forced labor constitutes a new version of slavery (under color of the law).

    This is an issue that I don't know much about, probably out of only having so many hours in the day and only so much capacity for outrage. But I would like to get a sense of the broad DU community's thoughts on the issue.

    I remember asking someone awhile back what happens if you refuse to work and apparently the prison authorities can then put you in 23-hour-a-day lockdown.

    I will attempt to reply to all serious responses to this OP.

    Thanks in advance
    .

    It must be exhausting to be a liberal with all the guilt and what-not.

    Don't confuse them with inconvenient truths. It's cruel and unusual punishment.

    25. Watch the movie C.S.A Confederate States of America

    This was on IFC recently and was a mock documentary about if the south had won the civil war. That is a secret wet dream of today's repubteakkk party.

    Back to your questions I have wondered the same thing if they regain all three branches. I could see them rounding up bloggers on sites like these and imprisoning us in camps for treason and sedition by their own definition. I hate to say it but things are like the 1930's Germany here and a small minority took over. The only thing we got going is the rmoney is not charismatic.
    Crap! They are onto us. You know the drill, Fire up the propaganda machine and wrap yourselves in flags!
