Slavery in the Americas predated the whites and the blacks. It was very common, in fact usual, for the eastern tribes to take prisoners and turn them into slaves for their own use and for trading. They fought each other constantly and there were plenty of Indian slaves which were often tattooed. The European slave owners found that the blacks were superior in endurance to the Indians that they accepted in trade from the tribes. The Europeans at first followed the old testament in endentured servitude, more or less. I dont know if they were Jews or christians but they were Europeans. Most of the Western tribes were not warlike above the Mexican border. However many of the whites had come to expect warlike behavior from any Indian. Fortunately we married more of them than we killed.

Love the history lesson. Bravo! Still dont need a president. I hope you understand why. It is an unnecessary concentratration of power which will always be inherently dangerous. Love you poco424.

Ships with captains run onto coral reefs and other nasty things that are hidden. We have a body of captains who care and are not hiding anything, the American people who do not want this ship run aground let alone sunk. Someone else does obviously but it isnt the people. I have found my Congressional representatives much more responsive than the president, any president. The office of presidency is a high concentration of power, which like all high concentration of power throoughout the history of the human race attracts intrigue, conspiracy and dirty double crossing like we are getting now.

Why not an Amendment to get rid of the office of presidency all together. Who the hell needs a tyrant anyway. I was taught in grammar school it was a compromise with Hamilton and other monarchists and there is no need for a Commander in Chief as some of my friends insisted especially when the prezs usually have no military training whatsoever. George Washington was elected president and commander in chief because he was proven to have military savy. Geroge Bush? Give me a break! Obama, lol!
