Texas vs White didn't make a new law, it was an interpretation of existing law, the constitution. Prohibition was a new law. So when it was put in effect, the rules were different from that time forward.

If Secession was legal, why not secede and bring the matter before the supreme court? if the supreme court said no, why not propose an amendment to the constitiutuon? I'm not buying that Lincoln could have prevented all discussion of legal secession - it was war that gave him his power. No war, no power.

I am not against secession - my point is that there was another way to get there. T
