‘Brilliant Idea’

If Only We Carried the Same Values as Our Founding Fathers!

A sample from Book 3

 Brilliant Idea
 
buchanan—
a startling convection
the democratic party
split opposition
halt this spreading conflagration
with poor decision
in the kansas situation
guaranteeing a lincoln election
a black republican
—southern tension
 
the north
a firm war promotion
for slavery abolition
a cause sensation
 
buchanan asked for legislation
amendments to our constitution
his only mission
postpone a war admission
for the republican administration
 
december 20, 1860
south carolina—
the first division
 
january 8, 1861
buchanan pleaded his position
 
...a common ground on which conciliation and harmony
can be produced is surely not attainable...
 
not with a one-sided dictation
 
...the proposition to compromise by letting the north
have exclusive control of the territory above a certain line
and give southern institutions protection below the line
ought to receive universal approbations....
 
a splendid nomination
the south not having
to commission
to northern reformation
 
...in itself, indeed, it may not be entirely satisfactory,
but when the alternative is between a reasonable concession
on both sides and a destruction of the union it is
an imputation upon the patriotism of congress to assert
that its members will hesitate for a moment....
 
on history's reflection
greed's illustration
wanting commotion
instead of retrospection
 
...at the beginning of these unhappy troubles I determined
that no act of mine should increase the excitement
of the country....
 
not looking for validation
or a celebration
 
...if the political conflict were to end in a civil war,
it was my determined purpose not to commence it nor even
to furnish an excuse for it by any act of this government....
 
not sounding like a politician
but a true american citizen
 
...my opinion remains unchanged that justice as well as
sound policy requires us still to seek a peaceful solution
of the questions at issue between the north and the south....
 
what stronger contribution
to a presidential administration
 
...in conclusion it may be permitted to me to remark that
I have often warned my countrymen of the dangers which
now surround us. this may be the last time I shall refer
to the subject officially…I feel that my duty has been
faithfully, though it may be imperfectly, performed and
whatever the result maybe, I shall carry to my grave the
consciousness that I at least meant well for my country....
 
a true constitutional inclination
 
january 9, 1861
mississippi joined the separation
january 10,1861
florida followed the fashion
january 11, 1861
alabama part of the collection
january 19, 1861
georgia made their decision
january 26, 1861
louisiana without hesitation
february 23, 1861
texas joined the southern nation
 
the line idea invitation
a peaceful resolution
a different cultivation
a saving salvation
—no lost family antebellum plantations
—a slower mixed population
—no racial manifestation
—no lives damnation
 

‘Brilliant Idea‘ was written in 2010. A year of discovery for me.

James is a big name with U.S. Presidents! Our 15th President, James Buchanan was bullied. He was. He didn’t want bloodshed. He knew that if we let the South make their own decisions that everything would iron itself out. I totally believe he was right.

The other side of the house, however, wanted bloodshed, they wanted to control the South…their resources. Buchanan knew it wasn’t about slavery…he knew that would go away if not pushed. The push created a constant pain in our side! Because Buchanan believed this…they actually didn’t talk to him after is presidency!
