I agree with this and think that neither side used the Supreme Court, as they should have, to settle secession.
Congress can suspend Habeas and backing up his actions ex post facto was against the law:
The Privilege of the Writ of Habeas Corpus shall not be suspended, unless when in Cases of Rebellion or Invasion the public Safety may require it.
No Bill of Attainder or ex post facto Law shall be passed. (source: U.S. Constitution Article I Section 9) Article one defines the powers of Congress:
All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives. (source: U.S. Constitution).
I have no problem with you disagreeing with my intrepretation of the Constitution on this issue. My interpretation is only my opinion on what the this section of the Constitution means.
We all are entitled to a few mistakes, Lincoln included, I have probably used up my lifetime supply of mistakes. But please Stonewall making mistakes????? Some things are sacred.
I am willing to post what I think each side should have done within the system to try to solve their differences, either on this thread or if more apporprate on a new one. I would be interested in what others think.
