Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - What if the Confederacy had been left on it's own? What direction would it have taken? There's too many possible outcomes to count here... and they aren't all sunshine and roses.

But there would've bee….Continue

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - You see and hear it every day on this show when people call me up and argue with me about incorporation and deny the history. It has to do with this idea that the United States Constitution was sent by God, that it was carried down from Mt. Sinai, which was Independence Hall, carved on stone tablets, and we’re all sworn a perpetual and never-ending oath to uphold and worship it. It was a document, ladies and gentlemen, written by mor….Continue

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - Well, I don’t think it took 200 years to get this far screwed.

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)
