    The 'British' NA was written against the Scots! Most people have forgotten or never knew the relevant verses:

    O Lord our God arise,
    Scatter her enemies
    And make them fall;
    Confound their politics,
    Frustrate their knavish tricks,
    On Thee our hopes we fix,
    God save us all! .

    Lord grant that Marshal Wade
    May by thy mighty aid
    Victory bring.
    May he sedition hush,
    And like a torrent rush,
    Rebellious Scots to crush.
    God save the Queen!​

    There are better verses also - whatever you want.

    You mean the English NA dont you? Those are the same ilk that executed covenanters for not conforming. But your point is valid and it really is an age old pattern that most do not come close to understanding. I.E. the conspiring elite in every nation have just one object: "control through tribute." Your slavery, through tribute, and mine... and if you so much as dare to ignore or even scoff at it, you are going to be attacked, humiliated, destroyed (latest evidence; Rex Tillerson, Bob Corker, Mitch McConnell etc).

    So if you had lived in the USA in the 1820's would you have moved to another country?

    But I would not have accepted slavery under any conditions & fought it politically & in the courts of law to eradicate it.

    To a certain extent, yes. The Eastern band of The Cherokee would have fared much better in the Confederacy.

    That was Lincolns problem. The Courts knew slavery was Constitutional. The Constitution was expressly written so as to allow it. Read the accounts of debate at the Convention.

    I dont have to. As I said, I would never condone, support or take part in any form of slavery.

    but how do you know? Did they ever attempt giving back native land? Did they ever abuse and hunt them down, make them slaves? See I am asking these questions because I dont know. And I'm a Davis.....my face is white so I could have blended well into "White Man's Society"

    EWF - what do you mean by "I'm a Davis"?

    Is Davis your family surname?

    Or does "Davis" have a special meaning like a Free Masonry "Lewis"?

    Thanks

    Surname Originally Davies from Wales. Of course I'm a blended mutt like most people in America.....but its all white.

    Now I don't know what a Free Masonry "Lewis" but I do have the surname Lewis on my fathers side.....Lewis for Lluellen.

    Ya, I'm 3/4 Italian - fair skin blue eyes and 1/4 Jewish (mother's side) :) don't know what that makes me - a Semitic mutt?

    A 'Lewis' is the son of a Free Mason and has certain rights in masonry.
    My step father was of a Free Mason family (From Alabama) - he adopted me and gave me his name, although I later went back to my biological fathers surname.

    I'm not a Free Mason (accept via "eavesdropping" :)).

    Why don't you look at documents of that day instead of listening to revisionist idiots?
