    Well, me, Lincoln, the Supreme Court and the rest of the Union disagree.

    Saying "they had it" literally means nothing. It's embarrassing that you don't understand that.

    Why should they leave? It was their property. Still is.

    Okay.

    The United States is not.
    Are you suggesting that prior to ratifying the constitution, the states were not sovereign?
    Or are you suggesting that the states relinquished their sovereignty when they formed their compact?


    Still waiting for someone to defend how the Constitution is worth about the same as Kim Kardashian's wedding vows.
    Don't wait for me to defend you statement. It's ridiculous.

    Didn't say they had to leave... I'm just sayng thats why the war started.
    I'm proud that they stayed... I'm glad they fought the south and won. But don't tell me I can't be prideful in my heritage.

    I'm trying to figure out that myself. I don't think he knows what he's talking about.

    Re: Is the Confederate flag a symbol of treason?

    For all those who think the Confederacy had the right to Fort Sumter just because SC had declared secession:

    Do you feel the same way about every group that declares secession/independence? For example, the Kurds in Iraq?

    Last time I checked, you have to fight for independence, you can't just say "We're a new nation! This is our land!" Why does this not apply to the Confederacy?

    England and France, for starters. Although, it's irrelevant.
