Slavery was definitely a big issue at the constitutional convention. Ever hear of the 3/5 compromise?
Secondly, -you- don't have a right to perfect selfish determination, do you? Can you just say you like the view from Spaghetti Junction here in Atlanta at I-85 and I-285 and block it off for your personal use? It's a cool view; you can see all the way downtown in one direction and it seems like halfway to North Carolina in the other.
No one can stop you, can they? Wouldn't they being infringing on your rights if they ask or force you to move?
It is the same concept in the framing of the Constitution. The people of the states agreed not to coin money, or enter treaties or the rest. They gave up something to get something else. All this boo-hoo-hoo-ing about self determination makes the boo-hoo'ers sound like toddlers.
And just why did they need the 3/5 compromise Walt? Because northern states were more populated, did not care for the South or her ways, and would have raped the South for everything we had a lot earlier if not for that compromise!!
As for the right and being forced to move, does this cover the Cherokees being forced out of their homes to walk halfway across the nation by the general government!! No wonder the Cherokees sided with the Confederacy
