    It is difficult, No - it is impossible to discuss this matter with one who lives in their own little world, adulating those who at times were great men but in other ways were all too human with all of the failings that being human entails. One could easily take away the assumption from your writings that you honestly believe slavery was not such a big deal and that you in particular would not mind living in a time and place where you could have owned another human being.
    Nice speech. Doesn't add anything to whats been said.

    Proves you have nothing to call the South traitor over. And that it was the North that was traitor.

    So, lets sing, Glory, glory...hallelujah!

    I really don't think that, in the event Texas does decide to secede, that they will give a flying c@$% about the legality of the decision.

    I reject what you and others say based on history. Higher law, is history. Constitution is history. Slavery is history.

    You and others admit you must resort to the higher law to make the South traitor. You can't resort to the Constitution. So your posts are becoming small and empty.

    Wait.... What? The North was somehow a traitor?

    It wasn't.

    Btw, stop quoting chase. We already went over he changed his opinion on that later in life and we already went over that he was the Secretary of the Treasury during the war.

    It is always rather curious how the LewRockwell.com crowd sees things so crystal clear but yet the Supreme Court managed a far different conclusion.

    Chief Justice Chase in the White decision



    Yeah.... I know..... if only Lewrockwell.com had been around. Then they would have been schooled differently.
    The point was lost because the North preferred war to settle the secession issue.

    The White Decision is history. It was based on history. It was based on the Constitution. Deal with it. or not. It really does not matter what you think about it.

    The war was long settled before the White decision. The South got its ass handed to them on a platter and they paid a very high price for their treason and attempt to destroy the USA.

    Sadly, too many innocents died in extracting that price.

    No, it was not based on the Constitution and only an ignorant fool would say it was. The words "to form a more perfect Union." has no power behind them and no amount of saying they do will change that. They have no power behind them period.

    And like I said three times now the AOC was not standing and would not fall under any clause in the constitution.

    How could it possibly be constitutional? There is no prohibition against any state leaving, therefore they may, per the 10th amendment.
