Very admirable, Ed, if you can do it through 148 years of forced social and political separation.
I assume, Ed, by way of your analogy, the wife seeks a divorce, for whatever reasons, unarticulated or not, before a judge in a court of law?
No Blue, the idea of a judge and a court of law is putting a 21st century spin on things... she just walks out... lets pretend they not married, just voluntairly had come together to live. when it was over, she walked!
Sorry, Ed, but I can't buy into that. Secession and the war are all part of the same fuse that led to war. The spark is slavery, the fuse is secession, which led to the war. They are all intertwined, for without one of them missing from the equation/fuse, no war. IMO.
Blue, I am sorry, but we just have to agree to disagree on this issue.. they were seperate up until the firing on Sumpter... No Sumpter, no war..
By the way, TD has done a much better job of explaining what I was trying to get at. Thanks TD
