You know, the funny thing is that we are rather passionately debating the exact same things that were being debated in 1860-61, viz. is secession legal under the Constitution? Southern legislatures made the same Constitutional arguments that bama and TD are, and Lincoln made the same ones that Unionblue is. I confess that I can see both sides of the argument and think that perhaps the only way that the question could have been answered completely was a war and 600,000 lives.
