Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - In 1986 the Reagan administration worked out immigration reform for the current times… and future generations. So why would the current congress want to try and fix something that isn't broken? And even if it was an issue they needed to address, good luck trying to get them to propose a solution that lasts for more than four years, much less "future generations". All they're concerned about are quick fixes that will look good when they're running for office again. Check out more in today's Founders TV and be sure to sign up for a Founders Pass!
Was Secession A Constitutional Right? 1868 Book Concluded It Was. "It was in 1833, for the frst time in the history of the country, that it was solemnly asserted and argued, that the Constitution of the 'United States was not a compact between the States. This new doctrine simultaneously put forth, by Mr. Justice Story in his "Commentaries on the Constitution of the 'United States," and by Mr. Daniel Webster in "the greatest intellectual effort of his life," that is, in his great speech in the Senate of the I6th of February, 1833. In order to show that the Constitution is not a compact between the States, the position is assumed, that it is not a compact at all. If it be a compact, say they, then the States had a right to secede. But it is not a compact; and hence secession is treason and rebellion. The great fundamental questions, then, on which the whole controversy hinges are, first, Is the Constitution a compact? and, secondly, Is it a compact between the States?" - Albert Bledsoe, Was Secession A Constitutional Right (1868)
