    And like I said three times now the AOC was not standing and would not fall under any clause in the constitution.
    Lets see here. I can take the word of some libertarian internet poster....... or I can take the word of the United States Supreme Court.

    It was close...... but ...... after careful consideration........ I just have to go with the United States Supreme Court.

    You don't know the half of it.

    Imagine the kind of person who thinks Dukes of Hazzard is something to base your ideology on, and then dumb it down to the tenth power.

    Apparently you don't know the history of the butcher you took your name from.

    Apparently you don't know about Andersonville, where prisoners were executed by Commandatn Wirz at random, for which he was executed as a war criminal.

    You keep on going on about the constitution while showing your ignorance of things as basic as amendments.

    Fact is the CSA didnt give a damn about law, just about power.

    The CSA had thousands of political prisoners.

    They carried out mass executions of dissidents.

    The CSA censored the news and executed those who wrote or passed out banned writings.

    And finally, the CSA was no democracy. It banned political parties. usually only one candidate ran, just like the old Soviet Union.

    It was pure tyranny run by an elite.

    So, you didn't answer the question. And you call yourself a teacher? Pay attention please. If slavery was protected by the Constitution, then why should the South secede to preserve slavery?

    Quantrill
    You call yourself someone with ears, or who can read?

    You must have failed every history class since the sixth grade to never have heard of the Missouri Compromise, the Compromise of 1850, or any of the many crises where the slave owning elites were terrified that the const would be amended once they no longer had an equal number of slave and free states.

    The Alamo was a battle, it is who won the rematch (the war) that changed Texas history forever. ;-)

    Texas vs White was in 1869. Four years after the War. It played no role in 1860. It was not based on the Constitution. It was based on the victory in war.

    Sigh..

    Show me evidence the words "to form a more perfect Union." is words with power behind them.

    Show me that the AOC is standing.

    You can do neither.

They were accessory to the terroristic plot of Brown. They were found out? What happened to them? Nothing. Why? Because the U.S government agreed with their efforts.

    Literally ever last sentence out of your mouth is a lie.

    John Brown was stopped by the US military.
    He was hanged.
    His plot was uncovered in literally hours,and stopped within a few days.
    And Brown's six abolitionists who funded him didn't know he planned an uprising. He told them in advance funding had to be given "no questions asked." That's why the six were never charged.

    Even if they had known, so what? No one should mourn the death of slave owners any more than that of mass murderers and serial rapists, both of which many slave owners were.

    If Brown's plot had gone farther and he'd launched a slave uprising, we'd remember him like Toussaint Loverture and Denmark Vesey and Vicente Guererro.
    And I'll bet you don't know a single one of those.

    Exactly, the war was already over. The Texas vs. White decision was a product of war. Not Constitutin.

    Neither you or anyone else has showed the South to be traitor. Instead it is the North who relies on another law than the Constitution, who are found to be traitor.
