The Declaration of Independence and the Constitution both agree that they did.
More characteristically dishonest behavior from Normbenign, a pathologically lying troll
and a fanatical supporter of the CSA.
On many earlier occasions (including in this thread, as I recall), No1Marauder (among
other writers) has pointed out that Normbenign's wrong to believe that the US Constitution
gave any state the right to secede. Normbenign has been unable to come up with any
counterargument to No1Marauder other than tirelessly reiterating his unsupported claim.
"Because I said so!" (not a quote) is the total sum of Normbenign's usual 'logic'.
In the 1869 case of Texas v White, the US Supreme Court ruled that the US Constitution
did *not permit states to secede unilaterally from the United States*.
"By (the Articles of Confederation), the Union was solemnly declared to 'be perpetual'.
...the Constitution was ordained 'to form a more perfect Union'. It is difficult to convey
the idea of *indissoluble unity* more clearly than by this words. What can be indissoluble
if a perpetual Union, made more perfect, is not?"
--US Supreme Court (1869)
As usual, when things get too hot for Normbenign in a thread, he runs away and hopes
that readers' memories will fade and then resumes reiterating the same blatant falsehoods.
