It is incumbent on the person making the claims to offer evidence of their claims.
If you claim that there are three inch high monkeys made of flame who play professional basketball underneath the surface of Uranus, then it is YOUR responsibility to prove it. Nobody has the responsibility to prove that there are not such flame monkeys on Uranus.
What part of this do you not understand?
Here is your claim of historical fact and how you would prove it for all of us
What you eventually offered was one source which listed three confederate states that had such state wide referendums. You utterly failed to present anything to back up your claimof 11 confederate states and three additional border states conducting such state wide referendums on secession.What I will do, however, prove that all 11 Confederate states and 3 border states had state wide referendums on secession.
That is the evidence and it is directly from YOU.
Is there some part of this that you still do not understand?
You have ZERO credibility on this issue.

There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
Even so, as I brought up earlier, because a nation is really just the sum of certain ideas, it could be argued that the Confederacy was the group that was truly living up the US's idea and the Union was the traitor. Nonetheless, in the US, as it is today, the Confederacy does not represent the current United States, so to fly it's flag is to represent a group that did not want to belong to the current USA.

If there's a god, damn it she won't mind.
If there's a god, baby she won't mind.
You should stop with the racism, it doesn't help your already wanting credibility.The same reason the rednecks from the south like strom thurmond tried to filibuster the civil rights acts.
They didn't abolish serfdom. They simply re-invented it. Just like the United States re-invented slavery and called it the, "company store system", which remained in place well into the 20th Century.Russia abolished serfdom before we abolished slavery. That's embarrassing.
slavery was the biggest issue. We had congressman going to the capital with guns. The election of Lincoln was the final straw and that's when the south decided to commit treason.
