Let me ask you a question. If someone were to ask you, "Where in the constitution does it say that the president's term is 4 years?" Would you say, article 3? Or would you say Article 2, section 1?
If the supreme court were to decide that the president's term was to be 5 years rather than 4, would you just shrug your shoulders and say, "Well, article 3 gives the supreme court the power to interpret the constitution, so I guess the supreme court must be right..."
I am asking where in the constitution it says that a state is prohibited from leaving the union. I am well aware that the judicial power is vested in the supreme court, and I am well aware that the supreme court has ruled that secession is unconstitutional. However, I am questioning the validity of their ruling, and am asking you upon what they based their ruling.
You, of course, will respond with something like, "For the fifth time, because the supreme court said so", so I don't hold out much hope of any further fruitful dialog. I'm hitting the rack. See you all tomorrow.
