    The myth is that the South followed the constitution. Kinda hard to follow the constitution when ur trying to break up the Union with seccession. The whole point of the Constitution was to bind the states together, not break them up.

    First, secession was not uncontitutional. Second, why does the North disregard the fugitive slave law? Article 4 sec. 2. Why does the North allow John Brown freedom in the North to plot terroristic attacks against the South?

    The South was not disobedient to the Constitution.

    Can you prove that the government supported the raid that they suppressed with military?

    It went right over your head. It appears that you had no idea how many founders signed the Constitution. Its a good day when you can learn something.

    John Brown was allowed to roam free in the northern states after having been arrested for the murders in Kansas. Once he got to the 'free' states, he mysteriously got free. Met with northern money men, and even politicians for support in future attacks upon the South.

    Can you prove this? Hint: the source should not be a dumb uberconservative Confederate site.

    The fugitive slave bill, I'm guessing.

    Look, the Constitution is over 200 years old. It should be adjusted to fit modern times. An amendment that keeps states from seceding would be in line.

    It should be obeyed during the time it is in force. Don't you agree?
