If people are free to enter the Union, why are they not free to exit?

The longer we live, the more sensible secession will seem.

They say this like it's a bad thing.

Given the present course of the Union, confederates will be growing in number and popularity.

“They do not know what they say. If it came to a conflict of arms, the war will last at least four years. Northern politicians will not appreciate the determination and pluck of the South, and Southern politicians do not appreciate the numbers, resources, and patient perseverance of the North. Both sides forget that we are all Americans. I foresee that our country will pass through a terrible ordeal, a necessary expiation, perhaps, for our national sins.” - General Robert E. Lee.

If you like freedom, the south would not have been that great. It was a military dictatorship during the war - no freedom of the press or speech. The north on the other hand, had a vigorous press throughout the war. Current disdain for the federal government aside, we are lucky the north won.

Being born and raised in Illinois I grew up believing Lincoln was one step below Jesus Christ. Not so much anymore. Add me to the list that sympathizes with the south. BUT... the abomination of slavery had to end.
