Candyman(inactive) Why is 'Dixie' considered racist? (104* d) RE: Why is 'Dixie' considered racist? 05 Jul 03

Wow, Guest of 1:32 pm. That's quite a conspiracy theory you've got there.

I was particularly interested in your statement that "the same banking concerns that armed the South and the North and then touched off the separatist movement are still active today in Quebec and the American southwest and lots of other places around the world."

The only thing is, the Quebec separatist movement only started almost 100 years after the Civil War and failed in its two attempts to attain a majority by referendum. Earlier this year, the election in Quebec gave power via a big majority governmnet to the Jean Charest, the most pro-Canadian Quebec premier in history.

As a group, bankers, and thus "banking concerns" only care about one thing and that's making money. Separatist movements only serve to create instability, which makes making money a risky proposition. Bankers are much more interested in the stability of strong governments.

Yeah, that's quite a conspiracy theory you've got there.
