    Ah .. Jake has called in help. Unfortunately it's Boadicea, and he still posting anyway. Some 8 to 48 more, Jake. You need the post counts for that big monthly competition for people who never win real prizes for anything.

    We know secession was not illegal, and we know Madison specifically refused to grant the Federal government the power to use forces against a state when Pickney proposed such a clause being included. Every former colony in the country used secession to get concessions at one time or another, New England states being the big fans of it early on.

    But the sniveling is just about some modern day gimps trying to take credit for something they had nothing to do with, and bashing the south for going Republican; they think they can claim some moral authority for themselves via osmosis or something. The fact is the northern states were far more violently racist than the south was then, and they still are now. That's why some 90% of the black population stayed in the south until well into the 20th Century, a Fun Fact they never point out, either.

    We know Picaro does not understand the Civil War, its antecedents, its history, and its aftermath. Then he snivels when corrected.

    Blacks had no other options but to stay in the south. That was all they knew and their families were there

    Very few lynchings in the north
    It was a way of life in the south

    I have been on late night TV thirteen times.

    Picaro watches streaming bad history on his TV.

    Well, it looks like he's banned.

    I'm willing to take his place in the discussion.
