The U.S. Supreme Court later ruled in Texas v. White in 1869 that secession had been unconstitutional and that "the Constitution, in all its provisions, looks to an indestructible Union composed of indestructible states."
That disagrees with the Declaration of Independence for starters.
But just because SCOTUS says it, doesn't make it right. "Separate but equal" was ruled constitutional too but they were wrong.
If government governs at the consent of the governed, who are they to tell me what is or isn't right?
It's like the employees telling the employer how to run the business. It doesn't work like that.
For too long people believe we are at the bottom of the pile when in reality, we are at the top and the states and the country flow FROM us.
