The Right of Secession: Part Two of Two

Is Davis a Traitor: Was Secession a Constitutional Right Previous ...

The Southern States unquestionably had the right to secede from the Union. That Southerners lost a catastrophic war, which, if it occurred today, would count 8.7 million dead and 10 million wounded, only glorifies and enshrines in the annals of human history, the courage of Southerners and their commitment to democracy, self-government, the Founding Fathers, and especially the Declaration of Independence with its assertion that governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed.
Other direct evidence of the right of secession abounds.


  1. The government, particularly the federal government has NO RIGHTS. It has ONLY delegated powers from the People of free States. There are NO powers delegated to the federal government to prevent a "free and independent State" or States from leaving the Union, therefore, according to the clear wording of the 10th Amendment, it may do NOTHING. --Ron W
