    Unjustifiable, according to you. Not according to the Constitution. The seceding was done due to the norths view that the South should not be protected by that constitution.

    My natural law says a state should be able to secede when ever it wants to. It shoud be allowed that freedom. Else it is just held in slavery by the Central govt. Thats what my higher law says. What does yours say?

    Actually, I was looking at the PEOPLE of the NATION who created the GOVERNMENT. That reality seems to have escaped you in your desire to simply attack me.

    The U.S.military stopped brown. Brown should have been executed by the Federal govt. Because it was a federal institutin he attacked. In stead they gave it to Virginia to prosecute. That way they were not the executors. The Southern states were. And John Brown becomes a martyr.

    Glory, glory,...hallelujah.

    You mean "the norths view that the Southslavery should not be protected by that constitution", don't you?
    You keep using "South" as a euphemism for slavery, why is that?

    Funny you should use the phrase "just held in slavery". Being held in slavery because you would have to free slaves?!?

    Re: Texas secession?

    To MoSurveyor

    Im using South as South. Slavery as slavery. The South seceded due to the north's view that the South shouldn't be allowed protections under the Constitution.
