“...this case is often thrown out as having settled the matter legally...”
What a load of hogwash. Liberals get a favorable ruling and drag out this statement.
Does it also apply to the Dred Scott decision?
These idiots love to pontificate that “the Constitution is a living, breathing document” but woe unto anyone who suggests that Roe v. Wade be re-examined.
The Supreme Court is neither omniscient nor omnipotent, though they insist on acting that way.
By the time a people are ready for secession, things are probably so bad the constitution is just a worthless piece of paper anyway. By that time who cares what the courts of corrupt and abusive govt says. Secession seems to reside outside of the laws.
Of course the supreme court is not always right. When it makes an error, the error can be corrected, as the Dred Scott decision was corrected by 13th, 14th, and 15th amendments.
The people are sovereign. They express their sovereignty by various government bodies and procedures.
