    Modern-day Confederate apologists insist the South only separated in response to legitimate political grivances, namely they were being pushed around and oppressed by a tyrannical federal government dominated by northern politicians who had no respect for "states' rights," federalism, and local sovereignty. Everyone else insists the Confederacy was founded for a much less noble reason, namely to ensure slavery could remain legal at a time when much of the country was uniting against the practice.

    We can get a good glimpse into the founding principles of the Confederacy by taking an in-depth look at the Confederate constitution, which was approved, and came into use by the rebel states on March 11, 1861. The document is largely a word-for-word copy of the United States constitution, but with several key changes. The changes offer the clearest window of insight into how precisely the CSA intended to be different from the USA, and why.

    Before we get into a line-by-line comparison, I should point out the general, minor changes that occurred during the revision process:

    * All references to the "United States" were changed to the "Confederate States;" references to the "Union" were changed to "Confederacy."

    * The CSA's constitution's punctuation, capitalization, and in some cases spelling, are all updated from 18th Century to 19th Century English standards.

    * The CSA constitution numbers its clauses. In most cases, each paragraph from the US constitution is numbered as a single clause, but in some cases the CSA merges multiple clauses into one big one, or breaks up long paragraphs into several smaller ones.

    USA

    We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

    CSA

    We, the people of the Confederate States, each State acting in its sovereign and independent character, in order to form a permanent federal government, establish justice, insure domestic tranquillity, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity — invoking the favor and guidance of Almighty God — do ordain and establish this Constitution for the Confederate States of America.

    NOTES

    The Confederacy's preamble generally deleted any reference to collective interests, presumably because it obeisantly intended to be a country focused more on state independence than any sort of grander, national goal. The CSA does not promise to form a "perfect union" nor does it aspire to provide for the "common defense" or promote the "general welfare."

    It does, however, explicitly evoke God. So there would be no court challenges about the Pledge of Allegiance in alternate CSA-won-the-Civl-War-world.

    This web site does a wonderful job of comparing and contrasting the two constitutions with notes about the exact changes. Everything is in a chart form that is easily read and understood.

Even assorted AP's did no longer comprehend what went on hospitals and how little ones have been taken from their mothers. a number of them have been lied to as nicely. those days there is no actual excuse for being unethical (although no longer being knowledgeable of the outcomes adoption could have on a toddler) or ignorant whilst going into adoption. the counsel is there, so are books and different analyze approximately adoption and what's seen ethical. No 'promotion and marketing' advance into utilized in our adoption-kinfolk maintenance comes first. Its seen the final option, no longer the 1st.
