The constitution failed when men failed: they denied southerners sovereignty – the premise upon which the constitution is founded. And it failed for no other reason than to prevent the agrarian south from control of the continent isolating the puritan industrial north from control over western expansion. The only reason Lincoln didn’t continue the existing repatriation of slaves to africa was the cost. yet what was the cost of 500,000 lives, our constitution, and our sovereignty? Why? Because white men – Pres. Lincoln in this case – granted black leaders at the time their sovereignty by asking it of them. To lead it. Rather than for americans to force it. Why do we make the same mistake today with all other aliens? If you seek to take our sovereignty, then by reciprocity we shall seek to take yours. If you cannot or will not integrate then we have no choice but to separate.
