    US taxpayer burden to finance the federal deficit = 220 billion dollars a year (source: USNews)

    Cost to finance Confederate grave sites = $2 million over a decade.

    Yep, misplaced priorities.

    The south should pay their own bills, don't you agree?

    It's Biblical principle that you pay your own bills.

    This is what I was going to say. $2million is like 5 toilet seats and a heated rug in the White House.

    Agree.

    Which is why I'd rather take that $2 million spent over a decade which works out to $200,000 in annual outlay to reduce our interest burden on the national deficit by the corresponding amount.

    Instead of $220 billion a year it would only be $219,999,800,000

    We're gettin' rooked.

    Newsflash: We're one country now. The war has ended. The men under that dirt fought for their country. Take your separatist, inflammatory troll bait elsewhere.

    Ok. Let the South keep its part of the $2.2 trillion debt service over ten years and it can pay the $2 million no problem.

    Are you claiming that the southern states are not part of the USA?

    Applying that logic, blacks alone should pay for the upkeep of the MLK Memorial and the northern states should bear sole responsibilty for maintaining the Lincoln Memorial. :upeyes:

    As inflammatory as you are trying to be, I would typically agree that the federal government has no business doing anything of the sort.

    This is a particular exception. Regardless of the reasons involved, some states attempted to peaceably leave the union and the union violently took them back. Honoring and recognizing this kind of sacrifice falls just second to the complete and immediate reintegration of the population of the Confederate citizens into the union in importance of federal responsibility after the war.
