Read that again. Read it one more time. Now point out to me where it says anything about supporting slavery. Bachman signed the pledge to emphasize her position on marriage and the family. If you don't think it is a tragic truth that families during the horrible existence of slavery were more likely to stay together than they are today, there is something wrong in your brain housing group.
Slavery was and is a horrible blight on ALL of human history, but I am getting sick and tired of all the losers that seem to think America is the only country in history to allow the practice of slavery. All of the major civilizations in history had slaves, from the Egyptians to the Mayans. Slavery has been a blight on all of those civilizations. But slavery is dead. No country on Earth has slavery now. Let it go.
If you are a liberal pinhead like Whoopi Goldberg, you should be disgusted that slaves were better able to maintain a nuclear family than black Americans today. That is also a blight on our country's history.
