Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – "You see, Eric, it doesn’t matter how many times we explain this, how many times we go over this, it goes right over the heads of people.  What is frustrating to me and just drives me nuts is why the average citizen, when he is told that he is free to live inside his sovereign state and govern himself says, [mocking] 'No, I want to be told what to do by the Supreme Court.  You’re an idiot!'  It doesn’t even make any sense." ….Continue

Was Secession A Constitutional Right? 1868 Book Concluded It Was. "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?"
