Actually, Chris, Lincoln broke several laws and he knew it-he made the decision that it was for the greater good.

Because Lincoln broke the law. He is far from being the hero that history is proclaiming him to be. He even went so far as to deport American citizens who criticized him. Put newspaper people in jail for it. Nowhere in the constitution does it give the federal government the power to stop states from leaving. If you think I'm wrong, show me.

The idea of Texas seceding from the Union is a long time joke, but a secession petition on has received enough signatures to be seriously reviewed by the White House.


This isn't quite the equivalent of the Declaration of Independence, but in the digital age, you could say it's similar.
