disHonest Abe, guilty of treason, as charged!
You know, I can't get to upset about Lincoln. He was their President and the USA was their country. For those 4 glorious years, most of real America i.e. the South and the CSA had a real President, Jefferson Davis. For a brief time our ancestors were free from the North East power structure and the unending usurpation of the pretend Union. What that stupid goon did to those people is of little importance to me, it's just that jerk set a precedent we ALL have to live with.
Dishonest Cowboyway, making false charges again.
Secession without legal authority is nothing but rebellion. To support rebellion with violence is insurrection and treason.
There was treason, but it was not on the part of the legitimately elected government, but rather on the part of those who had not been elected, who presumed to form a government in opposition to that elected.
