    You mean that silly event like the cold blooded murder of 9 black men and women in their church by a white supremacist? That sort of "cause driven" action? Wow. Just WOW.

    On what constitutional basis did the south believe it had the right to secede? Is there a clause somewhere in the rightwing, white-supremacist version of the Constitution that reads: "and if any of the states don't like the way things are going can leave any time they wish?" I guess there must be because rightwingers still toss out the idea of secession every time the constutional process the governs the entire country doesn't bow to their extremist ideology.

    "Granddaddy" apparently had an answer for everything and it was wrong every time.

    You are aware the bible condones slavery, right? I imagine if hell exists it would come down to how they treated their slaves, not if they had slaves.

    How did the north push their rights on the south if they were in the north? The South would've had to go north for the north to push their rights on them.

    The only document that matters is the Constitution of 1787...and there ain't one word about secession. there is this however...
    ARTICLE I
    Section. 10. No State shall enter into any Treaty, Alliance, or Confederation; grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal; coin Money; emit Bills of Credit; make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts; pass any Bill of Attainder, ex post facto Law, or Law impairing the Obligation of Contracts, or grant any Title of Nobility.

    No State shall, without the Consent of the Congress, lay any Imposts or Duties on Imports or Exports, except what may be absolutely necessary for executing it's inspection Laws; and the net Produce of all Duties and Imposts, laid by any State on Imports or Exports, shall be for the Use of the Treasury of the United States; and all such Laws shall be subject to the Revision and Controul of the Congress.

    No State shall, without the Consent of Congress, lay any Duty of Tonnage, keep Troops, or Ships of War in time of Peace, enter into any Agreement or Compact with another State, or with a foreign Power, or engage in War, unless actually invaded, or in such imminent Danger as will not admit of delay.
    Many of these things were done by the confederation of southern states without the consent of congress, the US Constitution, or the American people.

    And lost, thus making them traitors. If you believe in a god of judgment that intervenes in human activity then that god chose the northern cause not yours.

    Well, to be fair, granddaddy got his information second-hand.
