This blog post is about the
current Hugo Award Nominees LeCompton Constitution in Kansas in 1856.
I’ve heard it said that the slave power “gamed the system” and that this is wrong. I say that’s nonsense. Sure, they stuffed the ballot boxes–but how is that any different from what the free state supporters did? How is stuffing ballot boxes any different from trying to convince people to vote your way? Look how many new voters the slave power brought into the political process. I say the free state supporters are just elitists and poor losers.
(Note for the humor impaired: I don’t really say that.)
