I thought Stellonia was Bank Director?
He has been removed by the Senate, as of today.
What are we arguing about? We both admit that one of the reasons the south succeeded was because of slavery. This was wrong. Hence the war was justified.
By the way, states have representation in the federal government, if they don't like a tax or tariff, they change it legally, they don't succeed from the union.
I think the south succeeded mainly to protect slavery. It's obvious from their declarations. They put some other nonsense in their but nothing else substantial.
I don't know what made you think I disagreed with that. Of course, there was slavery in the early colonies.
I doubt it but it really doesn't make any difference. The majority can't choose to kill the minority which is basically what was happening. When the communists invaded, they murdered and imprisoned hundreds of thousands of people who disagreed with them. Whether or not a "significant portion" wanted that, they had no right to have it.
Pres. Abraham Lincoln was personally against slavery, but in his first inaugural, he made it clear that placating the Southern states was more important. Quoting himself in other speeches, he said, "I have no purpose, directly or indirectly, to interfere with the institution of slavery in the States where it exists. I believe I have no lawful right to do so, and I have no inclination to do so."
The North went to war to hold the union together, not to free slaves. They hadn't freed them in their own states yet. It wasn't until the Emancipation Proclamation of 1863 — which left slavery intact in border states that hadn't seceded — that ending Confederate slavery became an official Union aim.
The Constitution as ratified in 1787 and 1788 is “a mere compact resting on the good faith of the parties.” That compact can be unilaterally broken at any point by the same people of the States which ratified it. Neither the Framers nor the ratifiers believed that the Constitution created a “consolidated nation,” it didn't exist in their time.
The Constitution of the united States, does not explicitly or implicitly disallow the secession of any free and independent State from the United States. Joining the "Union" was ever and always voluntary, rendering voluntary withdrawal an equally lawful and viable option.
Likewise, each of the united States is "united" with the others explicitly on the principle that "governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed" and "whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends [i.e., protecting life, liberty, and property], it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government" and "when a long train of abuses and usurpations...evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security
The Confederate States withdrew from the Union lawfully, civilly, and peacefully, after enduring several years of excessive and inequitable federal tariffs heavily prejudiced against Southern commerce. Refusing to recognize the Confederate secession, Lincoln called it a "rebellion" and a "threat" to "the government" (without ever explaining exactly how "the government" was "threatened" by a lawful, civil, and peaceful secession) and acted outside the lawfully defined scope of either the office of president or the U.S. government in general, to coerce the South back into subjugation to Northern control. The South's rejoining the Union at the point of a bayonet in the late 1860s didn't prove secession is "not an option" or unlawful. It only affirmed that violent coercion can be used—even by governments (if unrestrained)—to rob men of their very lives, liberty, and property.
