Wolfgang: Actually, the question was not settled. A rebellion was put down. The question of states being able to secede has not been answered. The writings of the Founders definitively show that they expected states to be able to leave the Union.

Funny Wolfgang, you live in a country that seceded from England.

Are you still loyal to King George, fighting the Colonials?
"When in the course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another ..."

So begins the Declaration of Independence of the 13 colonies from the king and country to which they had given allegiance since the settlers first came to Jamestown and Plymouth Rock.

The declaration was signed by 56 angry old white guys who had had enough of what the Cousins were doing to them. In seceding from the mother country, these patriots put their lives, fortunes and honor on the line.

Four score...
