One of the most disconcerting aspects of liberal bigots is their insatiable appetite for tearing down anything American in order to build up anti-American sentiment.The issue over the Confederate flag is an excellent example.
Most liberals have nothing but contempt for one the most lasting and cherished symbols of the South; preferring to label those who revere the Confederate Flag as red-necked racists and hate mongers. To most liberals, diversity is a terrific concept, except when it spawns tolerance for ideas and practices that the left opposes.
Long live liberal fascists?
Amazingly enough, those same self-righteous liberals who are so anxious to disembowel American citizens for flying the Confederate Flag will defend millions of illegal aliens who take over our streets while boasting the Mexican flag!
If ever there was a flag that should be banned in America, it is the flag of Mexico, our third-world neighbors who dump their illiterate peasants on the US side of the border for US taxpayers to feed, house, educate, and provide medical care for.
Bottom Line: Give me a redneck with a Confederate Flag any day over a brown-necked illegal alien with a Mexican flag!

I care. I don't care about the Confederate Flag.
I am worried, about the Illegals, and their cost. Their cost to me and their cost to this country, that I love.

I'm a notherner, always have been, so I don't really care for the confederate flag-I think it belongs at confederate museums and cemetaries, and should stay there. People can do what they want on their own property, however, even if it's something offensive to others.
There are some things that I really love about southern culture, and I divorce those things in my mind from the slavery of the past and the symbols of that time. The tradition of hospitality is something really great about the South, and the food is awesome-the only people up here who can barbeque well are either black or from the South, or both. People are nice and pleasant to you when you travel throught the area. Although I'm not a huge fan of cw music, it is an important part of the american musical tradition, and shares roots with rock and R&B. I like some of the videos, though, they're fun.
Despite the legacy of slavery, some of the old plantation homes are really amazing buildings. The slaves who built them and the men who designed them both deserve credit.
Best of all, your state governments trust the citizens with real fireworks.

As a side-note, please remember that slavery was not limited to the South.
I claim the South as my home, now, though I was born in Wisconsin.

I love it down here, mostly for the reasons you cited.
Most notably the hospitality!
The last time we went North, I made the important realization that we could never move back permanently. We would either be shot for getting in someone's way, or run over!
People that we came across there, were just way too stressed, and in way too much of a hurry!!
As to the Confederate flag vs Mexican flag... only one belongs in this country, and in this country's history.
And it is not the Mexican flag!
As has been stated, the Confederate flag is part of our history, for good or ill.
Do I have a Confederate flag? Yes.
Do I think that it should be used as a rallying cry or active symbol of any state or our Nation? No.
Do I think that people should be punished for displaying it? Hell, No!
This is America! The symbols of this Nation are part of our heritage, and deserve to be recognized, not erased from history.
