    I do not know what nation you pretend to live in but in the USA the 15th Amendment effectively gave African Americans the right to vote while the 19th effectively gave females the right to vote. The 17th Amendment gave the people of the state the right to vote for their US Senators.

    the constitutional law does not apply to Citizens......federal law does.

    they drew them from the law of nature.

    its natural to speak - pray - protest - associate - self-defense, be secure in ones self, among many others.

    the constitution states to levy war....and to aid ..that means to impose a war on the u.s....secession is not imposing a war on the u.s.

    a state by leaving the union is not attempting to over throw the federal government
