What you (plural) don't want to admit is that not only did Texas v. White explicitly rule that secession was, is, and will always be a violation of the law, it also ruled that legally it wasn't even legitimate. Secession was absolutely void, meaning that strictly from a legal point-of-view, it never happened in the first place. Only revisionists such as yourself would claim otherwise.
Nice strawman. I never said that the United States (we should stop calling it the Union already. That's an outdated term.) never did anything wrong. Hell, while they were fending off the Confederacy, they were oppressing the Natives out west. Fighting for liberty on one front, fighting against it on another.The only people attempting deflection are those trying to maintain that the north was 100% correct. The facts have been presented and shrugged off by people who don't want to admit that maybe they didn't get the whole story on the Civil War. But if you want to maintain your stance.....whatev.
You lie. Slavery was THE core issue. "States rights" was nothing more than an expedient catchphrase designed to defend an inherently racist and oppressive institution. Again, you revisionists make comments such as these because you want people to take their eyes off that fact.Ah yes. More simplifying. Slavery was a sub-issue and the last straw, many writings from the north of the time even say that abolition was a sub-issue to their desire of maintaining the Union. So we can retire that argument.
Get the plank out of your eye before you try to get the speck out of ours.Why do ya'll insist on labeling those who don't buy into your PC revised version of history, "Confederate sympathizers", or, "slavery apologists"?
You lie. Don't direct us away from the real issue here.Slavery was the issue that brought up States Rights... so the real issue was actually: States vs Federal Rights.
Sorry to burst your bubble.
