Not playing fair, bama! But maybe you've hit on it. The secession movements appears to have been, to me at least, a stacked political deck. We've been living too long in Illinois to accept an otherwise. I suspect, repeat SUSPECT, that there was some pattyfingers going on down there. Someone sold a great many people down the river with all of that foofoo.

The more things change, the more they remain the same. 

It may be that self-interest was not the same as it is today, but it remains that self-interest prevailed. Taken as a point, self-interest is always a given, but it also remains that self-intererest, in the representation of the people, always ought to be in the interest of the people.
