    Re: My compromise.

    We should have no security problems in our free States. The People are the militia. Organize sufficient militia until we have no more security problems in our free States.

    You've said this before

    Explain

    What use is a militia against crime ?

    What other security issues do you see a militia solving ?

    Yes I would have to agree with that statement.

    So, ultimately, the confederate states could never claim to be "sovereign" states.

    As my politics lecturer said, US states cannot legally unilaterally leave to union whereas technically a Soviet Republic could leave the USSR.

    They can't now. But I fail to why a state or a group of states couldn't leave congress and the union and form their own country, which I would assume leads to another war but if those states that did leave held on long enough to be recognized as their own country through a treaty with its predecessor then it can call itself a new country and the war their independence. And the old country would call them traitors and their acts treason.
    Now watch what you say or they'll be calling you a radical, liberal, fanatical, criminal.

    Ask Congress who fought the bloodiest war the USA has ever fought in to prevent the confederate state from leaving.


    Probably for the same reasons that the British tried to stop the American colonies leaving the empire.

    Yes it's generally called a war of independence, and if you win, you can be a sovereign state

    Example Texas from Mexico.
