    The evidence that points to him being a homosexual is insufficient. While there is no proving he wasn't gay, if you look at all of the evidence, you'll see that it was very common for men to behave that way in the 19th century; a form of companionship that is lost today. Also, he was in love with at least two women in his life. He was neither a racist nor a tyrant. Everybody was a racist back then by today's standards. He welcomed the South home openly& pushed for no punishment. You lose.

    You are gravely mistaken. If you read your own country's constitution it doesn't state anywhere that secession is illegal...FACT! In 1852 Abraham Lincoln gave a speech in Illinois arguing that if people, anywhere in the world, were unhappy with their government they had a right to start their own. You can find this speech on the web or maybe go to your local library...it's recorded historical FACT! You really should learn your own country's history.

    So if we accept that premise. What is the value of such a supposedly self-evident prediction then? Of course all things are finite, duh. That information has no practical value in a human context whatsoever..

    Abraham Lincoln is the only President to illegally invade his own country. He did so not to free slaves but to preserve the union (he openly admitted this). He did this because he wanted the scandously high taxes the southern states were paying to Washington. Virginia and Tennessee sided with the South because they refused to allow federal troops to march through their states to attack others. 13 states seceded in 1776. It's a legal, constitutional, american right to do so.

    Ron is a wise, respectable statesman. Where are the rest of them?

    We need a new crop of leaders. Practical thinkers that care for the well-being of others. This is our country; we must lead it down the right path.

    I will state: I am not suggesting secession as a solution due to or in response of an elected Presidential official, Obama. I will not, however, stand against secession as I believe it the right of every state.

    Nor is there anything against secession. Not a single confederate was tried for treason, fact. Also, the federal government is only to govern with the confinement of the Constitution, as dictated by the tenth amendment. Which has on multiple occasions, has been violated by government. Therefore, the right to secession is always prominent when a higher governing entity fails to remain under its' own limitations. Enjoy your day, sir.

    They WERE independant states. By signing the constitution, they became part of one great nation. There is NO provision for secession in our constitution. See the supremacy clause. Independance of the states is NOT part of the constitution. Self governance IS, subject to limitations provided bythe supremacy clause.

    The union is a done deal, the states are now self governing entitys under the constitution. I refer you all to the supremacy clause of said document.

    Treason? The founding of sovereign states, let me reiterate in case your Plymouth Rock education failed you, SOVEREIGN, INDEPENDENT STATES, were brought together to prevent tyranny from European powers. To fight for one's own state, independent of all other states as constitutionally written, would never coincide with treason. Perhaps ignorance is bliss though. P.S. Union military were confident just as yourself when they went to battle. Bull Run, my friend, Bull Run.

    You're the real trash. Patriotism is not loving your country blindly but questioning your county when its wrong. Like Iraq , NDAA, The FED and all these other evil creations.

    Hardly Jewish thank you. Family been here since Plymouth Rock. Great grandfather capt. under Washington. Four grandfathers dead in civil war. All men in my family including me served honorably. Just tired of insurrectionist rebel crap. We have elected our president and representatives and I'm tired of a sore loser minority getting in the way of governing.with such trash. I was just hoping to be done with shooting rebels. Its costly. But, the federal arsenal is down the street.

    The thing I have against Rick Perry is he wanted to secede because a black democrat was in office. But, then, then after the elections came up again he runs for president. The fuck?
    Ron Paul defending a conservative proves he's no different from them. Also, he mentioned all the good things that would happen from secession. So, slavery might still be allowed, southern states would be a different country, America wouldn't exist. So much for his Consituation policies. And secession from the Union

    The Articles of Confederation several times states "union in perpetuity". The United States Constitution suggests a change in sentiment regarding perpetual union by NOT referring to it even once.

    That depends on whether being American means being a part of a landmass or the ideas the country stand/stood for. I am not American so I will not sit here and preach to you about what the intentions for the country were, but assuming you think the USA is something more than a piece of land secession does not mean 'unamerican' in the way you frame it. I am not in any way saying secession is the way to go at this time, but being so offensively against talking about the principle seems childish.

    Please do remember that Lincoln did split the country as well because of his poor execution of the end of slavery.

    Talk about abusing the creative. I just want corporations overthrown, necessity governed by socialist principals, and people's minds freed from the slavery called blissful ignorance. To obtain this, everyone has to work together. I'm sick of repubs vs dems. I want to see reality and compassion vs money and greed. the people shouldn't be pit against themselves, but against the problems.

    Its not going to happen anyway, until a break down occurs in the belief system. Enough to impact an internal change as well. I don't see secession happening first, more like a last resort. I dispute the land claims, but its also a fruitless effort. A man tried to compete against the U.S. dollar with his own currency called liberty dollars, they labeled him a counterfeiter (he was not) and put him away for life.
