Sometimes I wonder what would happen to the United States and how different the world would be, if the South has won the American Civil War.
I have a habit of watching/listening to C-SPAN channel during breakfast (I'm a political junkie). One morning I heard that my Senator Saxby Chambliss (Republican, Georgia) suggested that if the South had better intelligence during the Civil War, they would have won the war and "we'd be quoting Jefferson Davis, not Lincoln now" (Jefferson Davis was the President of the Confederate States of America during the Civil War, vz). I spilled the cup of breakfast tea on my pants. Way to go Senator. I thought I'm the only lunatic who thinks about things like this. Nice to know there are two of us.
