"Any People, anywhere, being inclined and having the power, have the right to rise up and shake off the existing government, and form a new one that suits them better. This is a most valuable and a most sacred right - a right which we hope will liberate the world. Nor is this right confined to cases in which the whole people of an existing government may choose to exercise it. Any portion of such People, that can may revolutionize and make their own of so many of the territory as they inhabit." -- Abraham Lincoln, January 12, 1848. The South was right!

Lincoln "defended" the Constitution by trashing the Bill of Rights and the Declaration? What "Union" did he preserve? Certainly not the one our Founders gave to us. We were a voluntary union of co-equal States who created the Federal government to serve them collectively. When one group of states forces another group of States to remain in the compact, they are then no longer co -equal or voluntary members, our Constitution is violated and we are nothing more than an empire. The servant (Federal Government) became the master with the coup of the Radical Republicans. Even though the South bore the brunt of Lincoln's wrath, we all lost that struggle if ideals. An unchecked central government (our Founders nightmare) will continue to amass more power until it becomes the monster we have today.
