They failed but saw themselves as a separate nation between 1860 through 1865. As stated before, the North and most of the rest of the world did not see them as separate, but it depends on who you ask. One thing is for sure, the US was not unified at that time.The South tried to become of a separate nation but in the end failed.
Did I say secession isn't a provocative move?And since you are asserting the creation of a new nation on the land of the old nation. Then you should not deny that secession is a provocative move.
No, not the same thing. Those who secede are not invaders/trespassers. They are mostly people who have lived in the country/state for their entire lives and have a long lineage of American blood.Its like walking on to someone elses land and squatting demanding that they give it to them.
Let's leave the personal insults out of it, okay?I dont care what cracker jack box that you got your education out of.
I agree they don't. And I already made clear I won't support any moves towards secession unless under extreme circumstances.My point was that Americans do not want this country to balkinize and will not stand for it especially from small factions.
Its just a minority who are having a tantrum over the election. It will subside. However, you seem to be under the impression that I support these folks.This is really a non-issue drummed up by radicals that have realized that they could never get the support of the entire nation. So they figure then that it would be easier to just get a portion of American land for their endeavors. But they are not smart enough to realize that they couldnt even convince a county to secede.
