The minority neo-confederate secessionists like to pretend that the Civil War was not legally decisive.
All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
No State Government can remove US citizenship from a US citizen. Secession would violate the US Constitution. Texas's Constitution affirms that the US Constitution is the law of the land, that their powers are not above it. It is impossible for a State to secede under the Constitution. End of story.
The Constitution is the law of the land. The South tried to deny that fact. In doing so they were trying to abolish the Constitutional power invested in the ratification of it. In other words the South tried to abolish the US government/UNION. Secession is the opposite of UNION.
People have been making comparisons to the American Revolution.
It is not. That is the point. Secession is not the same as Revolution.
The American Revolution … Not the American Secession
Agreed.Secession is the opposite of UNION.
