    I don't care if you quote God Himself. Is that quote in the Constitution or is it not in the Constitution?

    Why does anybody need to "pay you" when you do so? And what exactly are they paying you for?
    Your memory is extremely short there hay. So forget that the government levies a tax on all of your unrealized capital gains when you leave the country and you supported it by supporting a redundant bill that does exactly the same thing?

    That quote tells you that 'we the people' means 'we the people of the states' concerning the Constitution. And the ratification process was to the individual 'states'.

    So your quote from one person IS NOT IN THE CONSTITUTION. Thank you.

    I don't believe that this was actually the case. The states were sovereign. The treaty of Paris acknowledged the former colonies as free, sovereign, and independent states.

    I still have no idea what you are talking about. If you want to leave - then leave. Take with you what you own and can take with you. Pay your legal obligations before you do.

    You still have not stated why anyone leaving should be paid and for what should they be paid.

    Lol, and the legal obligations are the problem and you know it. You know perfectly well it is to keep people here so they DON'T leave. Your dishonestly is outstanding.

    The Preamble isn't law, it's just ideas. The law comes from the Articles and Amendments.
