    Well, actually the first time they tried to separate from Mexico, the Mexicans living there asked for help. Anglos from Kentucky came to try to help them, but they failed. Anglo settlers later succeeded, but that was really just an excuse to become part of the United States.

    I am rather surprised you did not know that.

    So since the Northerners interpreted the Constitution the way the Southerners didn't like, the Southerners get to attack the Northerners? Who appointed them the judges of the Constitution?

    Article 4 sec. 2 is not up for interpretation. It is specific.

    Crime in the figurative sense. Crime in the way that the Holocaust was a crime. Legal =/= right.
