    That is your defense? That? Tell me where is your evidence that follows? Please give me a founder that agreed with what you just said.

    And the last bit about the supremacy clause is just all out stupid.

    Ah, so the existing government was the traitor because it didn't accept having its bases destroyed by a few states who still wanted to have cheap African labor.

    Constitutionally, the Dred Scott ruling was correct, as slaves were considered property and not people. The objection to the decision is on moral grounds.

    Texas was never invaded; they were voluntarily annexed. The Lone Star Republic existed until the U.S. incorporated them.

    The North was the traitor because they refused to abide by the Constitution.

    Moral grounds don't make a patriot or traitor.
