Quote# 486

The US Constitution gave the Federal government no legal right to attack the Confederate States of America, yet they attacked anyway. Since anything not specifically granted to the Federal government is a right granted to the States, the Federal government was wrong in attacking the Confederacy. Therefore, doesn't that make Abe Lincoln a cold blooded murderer when he used the Union troops in order to force the Confederacy back into the Union?

Actually do some research into the court cases around the issue (The John Marshall cases, as noted, are essential), before you talk out of your ass, ok?

Um, the Confederacy fired the first shot. Look up "Battle of Fort Sumter", and then explain which side did the "attacking".
