I am so to find the website of your excellent organization. You are providing a much needed voice in defending what is right and true. I have long thought that the South is the United States and the rest of the country is just an appendage. My father railed against the freight rate differential that was rigged to keep the South in poverty and was not repealed until the 1930s, and then only to appease the labor unions that were forced upon the South by the government. I cannot find much about this because nobody writes about it. Can you help me with this? I have never fully understood this issue. Thank you.
