 As far as secession goes, the bottom line is that it isn't mentioned at all in the Constitution. Therefore, it can be maintained that it was legal based on the 9th and 10th Amendments. You can make whatever arguments or interpretations you wish to, but you can't debunk that one.

That does seem to be the basis of much argument, TD. Seems that if it wasn't mentioned in the powers surrendered to the feds, then it must have been a power reserved to the state. I've been trying to find out if secession was an understood right or power. Haven't gotten any takers yet.

Woof! Doc's thread has taken off so fast I haven't gotten a chance to read it all yet, let alone toss in my 2 cents.
