    You're just proving that you don't know what you're talking about.

    That's been his only response to anything leveled at him. Bull. Bull. Bull. Bull. Bull. Bull.

    That's bull. You're bull. He's bull, she's bull.

    Just another one in the debate site who doesn't want to actually debate.

    Oh, I'm sorry, my bad. I thought you wanted a debate on the Constitutionality of secession. I didn't realize you just wanted to B & M about things not being exactly to your liking.,



    Obviously, you don't read what I post. Good luck in future debates.
    Oh I read what you posted. And you provide nothing to show that secession was illegal prior to 1861. I have given you a quote from John Quincy Adams. And a quote from the Virginia ratification document to the Constitution.

    The armies of Texas were citizen armies. Houston defeated Santa Anna at San Jacinto. This is where we gained our independece. Not with the help of the U.S. government.

    it's supposed to say exactly what it says... it's a very short and concise sentence, shouldn't be to hard to figure it out.

    Oh, because you can't provide proof of secession being unconstitutional, then I don't want to debate? Because I don't believe your statements without proof, then I don't want to debate?

    Re: Texas secession?

    Interesting thoughts bouncing back and forth-

    When it comes to voluntary joining so there is an equal voluntary leaving...

    I voluntarily joined the army, I wonder what the result would have been if suddenly I decided shoot fire, I don't like people trying to kill me, I'm going home!

    I'm from Oklahoma so Texas is a love/hate for me but somehow I don't see them voting to leave the Union. If they do choose to leave the Union then they are not MY fellow Americans so I don't have a problem with killing enough of them to turn the balance in the vote back to Union.

    But I'll wager a shiny Texas nickle most who would vote to leave the Union wouldn't risk their lives to enforce that decision. Talk is cheap, typing even cheaper.

    All buff and bluster combined with a West Texas swagger aside, most Texans are like the rest of the USofA, not very willing to give up life for 'liberty' and leaving the Union isn't liberty, it's idiocy.

    Tell ya what, I'd vote to let Texas go and see how long it remains 'free' as long as the USofA keeps the oil refining centers and the US Army/Air Force can keep major training areas to run amuck on.

    Maybe we can get all the 'patriotic' mouths to move to Texas while we are at it. We can tell 'em it's a remake of John Wayne's movie, 'The Alamo' and we have the perfect deathtrap...ahhh stage for them!

    Oh a thought on reconstruction, that had nothing to do with the Right, yes or no, to leave the Union but rather the anger the victors had and took out on the rebels for all the deaths suffered to keep this one nation indivisible. Not the first time a crummy peace followed a war, nor the last.

    I've already addressed this. You want the impossible. You want a direct quote saying "Secession the US is completely illegal in all cases." That's the only thing you'll ever take, because you know that line isn't found anywhere and you feel cocky that your position is therefore completely right. But as I've already explained to you, just because something specific isn't mentioned in a founding document doesn't mean that it is automatically one way or the other.
