Which side would you fight on if the Civil war was fought today?

After moving to the south I see several Confederate flags displayed. So I started wondering just how many people still side with the south?

The war was fought over a myriad of conditions which do not exist today and make no sense in our modern political context.

I'm far more concerned for the well being of my friends and family than I am for protecting some politican's self intrests.

I would not participate and would probably leave the country altogether.

Based on where I live now, I'd probably be sympathetic with Quantrill's Raiders so sign me up for the South.

Where did I live at the time of the war? That would probably have the most to do with it.

Oh I think you have to look at underlying fundamentals as opposed to current events. They boil down to the same: loss of divided sovereignty which our Constitution was based on due to over centralization of power at the federal level which has led to a loss of liberty and a crushing of the idea that the Union was a voluntary pact between sovereign states and individuals. It was Lincoln that crushed this ideal which was our Founders genius.

Unless a person lived in that time I don't know how they could say. I lived most of my life in NY state, so I probably would have fought for the Union. Had I lived in Virginia I don't know if my state allegiance would make me want to defend the state.

"usa as we know it now would have never existed"—instead if would have existed more like it was intended with a weaker central govt. The south would have come back into the union as both sides needed each other long term. Secession, however, would have been one of our last remaining checks and balances on an overbearing Federal govt giving to us courtesy of Lincoln. The union would have held as it was supposed is a more likely outcome.

I'm still not sure how much of the Civil War was about States Rights and how much was Slavery issues, so truthfully I would be a bit conflicted in that regard as I am pro-states rights and anti-slavery. Which side had the better grub?

An interesting aside, the last surviving spouse of a Civil War Veteran died not that long ago. Less than 20 years ago I'm quite certain.

Are you Robert E. Lee incarnate? You sound like what he went through with his thought process. He was torn.

Well, since they say the southern soldiers were eating peanuts for their meals, I think the North was, on the whole, better fed.

I'm a bit torn on this. I think you're right that Lincoln crushed the original concept of our founders. But I also recognize that the United States probably wouldn't have achieved the levels of economic success and military power we have achieved under a more strict allegiance to the Founder's ideal. Changes of some type had to come for us to achieve this level of success, but it would have been better if they had come through the amendment process rather than civil war and a living constitution.

They really left peacefully but they couldn't really leave over the tariff issue; they had to do it over state's rights which the original Constitution granted them which unfortunately protected slavery. I think slavery would have died out anyway since most nations during that time did get rid of it with the stroke of a pen. It was just a matter of when.
