Pro Liberate has a post up on the diatribe that Newt & the others are spewing against Paul and the conservatives..
While the post is a good read, below is the $$$ quote. Grigg is talking about a 1912 study done by Dr. Paul Haworth.
It details how the reconstruction period was a campaign by the militant leaders in Washington and the corporate elitist of the North to destroy the leaders of the South. Almost what Newt is spewing. Don't you think?

The objective that inspired Reconstruction was not a vision of civic equality, but rather a desire to destroy the troublesome Southern aristocracy, which was seen as an impediment to the designs of the Northern corporatist elite.
“I was satisfied, and have been all the time, that the problem of war consists in the awful fact that the present class of men who rule the South must be killed outright rather than in the conquest of territory,” wrote General Sherman to his wife (in a letter quoted in Victor Davis Hanson’s book The Soul of Battle). In what Hanson approvingly called Sherman’s war of “terror” against the South, the General warned that those who refused to display a properly submissive posture would be “crushed like flies on a wheel.”
Just like in yesteryear, most of the politicians that run for POTUS come from the yankee blue blood families of corporate elitist.
So as we roll on into the 2012 election cycle, the vicious wheel of history is rolling behind us gaining speed.
No matter what the words coming out, the actions will be the same.
Just like the1860's
