I still claim that a federal government instituted by an association of states can NEVER dictate what states should stay and which can leave. The caveat is if one considers that the confederate states were conquered during the Civil War. Still, even if they were "conqured" it's not up to the federal U.S. governent to maintain the union.
"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...
