Just because he was poor and didnt have slaves doesnt mean he didnt support slavery. how can you know what his intentions were?

if you are calling the norther government oppressive, perhaps you should look at hi government. slavery? that's not oppressive at all.
there was also a HUGE problem with currency as each confederate state had it's own currency and the exchange rates were arbitrary and rediculous. each state would become it's own country and i see civil war breaking out between the southern states. if this system managed to continue, technological advancements would have been stunted because of problems gathering resources as well as lacking mass distrobution abilities. in short, go stuff yourself, you confederate malcontent.
