Secession is a deeply American principle.

Remember, when someone says, “states’ rights,” ask, “states’ rights to do just what, exactly?”

If you get an honest answer, it won’t be a pretty one.

    My ancestors wore the gray.  I can appreciate their memory, while realizing they were wrong, wrong, wrong.
    At Harper’s Ferry, there is a portrayal of one of them (Henry Alexander Wise) as he signed John Brown’s death warrant.  I still remember Second Son’s abashment and embarrassment at realizing that his forebears were on the wrong side in every way imaginable.
