Your grasp of US history in pathetic.
The North meddled in Southern affairs for years prior to the attack on Ft Sumter. Slavery was dying thanks to the cotton gin and harvester machines but the abolitionists kept the pot boiling. Also, the North and the Feds used economic sanctions on the South coming up to 1861. Kinda like the Feds do NOW when Obama takes 1.6 MILLION acres of “federal land” off of the drilling table.
How can the Federal government usurp the 10th Amendment, seize the lands of a State, and then prevent the State from developing the resources to the benefit of its citizens.
THAT is just one reason why I support secession.
