...you agreed with me that states do not have the power to violate our constitution.
Where does the Constitution state that States can't secede? I don't see it anywhere.

At #20, above, you agreed with me that states do not have the power to violate our constitution. -- Yet you agree with S-Mac that they can nullify/secede from our union, in effect destroying that same document.

I don't get 'it'. - Either the principles of our union/constitution are worth fighting for, -- within the bounds set forth in the document itself, or it should be amended.

-- What are your proposed amendments, gentlemen?

"Where does the Constitution state that States can't secede? I don't see it anywhere."
-p36-

Where does it say they can? - But in any case, you must agree that secession would destroy our republic, no?
- Therefore, what amendments are necessary to save our constitution?
