You showed us three and in one of those the vote led to a split of that same state.

    Sorry, but you have no credibility on this issue and have proven that recently.
    Well, gee, HM, feel free to post information that proves me wrong.

    I double dog dare yuz!

    ACtually they did both. Secession was not allowed in our constitution and therefore not legal.

What they believe in is more important then the fact that they believe in it and are willing to die for it.
    You disagree with protecting your family and your home from a hostile invader?

    I know it was not your point, but you made an untrue statement in supporting your point.

    And yet you rally against a symbol of the South while knowing little about those who fought for it outside of the slavery issue?

    I mean this is what it looks like.

    Please point out where in the Constitution it says this? This is the 5th time I have asked you and you have yet to point it out.
