These discussions always lead to mini-Civil Wars fought in the comments and in my email inbox, but whatever.
Missouri state representative Bryan Stevenson (R-Webb City) said the Freedom of Choice Act is the most egregious encroachment by the federal government since, "the war of northern aggression."
And then he fell into the arms of Rhett Butler -- suffering from the "vapors."
I agree with Oliver that it's no wonder why the Republicans have issues with minorities when their people are still going around calling the American Civil War the "war of northern aggression."
But more so than that, Americans who use that moniker are, in a way, voicing their support for the treasonous act of secession. There wouldn't have been a war had the South not seceded and fired on Fort Sumter.
