  •  Nobody in N or S Carolina could vote then! (4+ / 0-)

    The areas now known as the Carolinas was given by Charles II to the Gosvenors who became the Dukes of Westminster (another branch of the family are the Smithsons of Smithsonian Institute fame).  When the current duke was asked by the US government to sell them the site of the 1960s embassy in Grosvenor Square in London, he offered to exchange it for the "property confiscated from my family". So if the Dukes of Westminster owned all of what became these two states, how come their residents had votes?

    We will work, we will play, we will laugh, we will live. We will not waste one moment, nor sacrifice one bit of our freedom, because of fear.
