Didn’t Congress name the War, the Civil War?

NOPE, NOPE, NOPE….. it ts as follows:

By joint resolution of both houses, on March 28,1928, Congress established that the official name of the war of 1861-1865 shall be " The War Between The States".

Asshole Lincoln took to calling it a Civil War, because he did not recognize the Confederate Government as a legitimate government. He stated it was illegal for the South to secede, but Lincoln had a short memory. He forgot that secession was taught at West Point up until the war as a viable means to a tyrannical government…. it was perfectly O.K. for Texas to secede from Mexico, and he forgot this country was founded by secession. How imperialistic is that. Washington decides what governments are legal and which was are not. Isn’t that the same thing  that Japan’s government was doing during WWII. They were an imperialistic government, yet we looked down our noses at them…….How much better are we than they when Washington does the same thing.

Lincoln stated that he was raising an army to put down the rebellion and per serve the union…….WRONG !!!! A union is when everyone comes together voluntarily. To force the South back in to the union is not a union , that’s cohersion…..

No where in the Constitution does it state that when you join it was forever. Madison left that as a means of check and balance. You join the Union…..if the government does not hold up it’s end of the deal, you are allowed to leave. It was a way to keep the government in line and not let it overstep it’s boundaries.

As the founding fathers set forth, the federal gov’t was only suppose to be there to protect the country as a whole, but never interferer in states rights (that was the purpose of the 10th/ amend.). Our founding fathers were afraid if you gave a centralized gov’t tooo much power, you would wind up with tyrant like they had just kicked out and sent back to England and they were not about to have that happen all over again.

Our founding fathers were smarter men then most people give them credit for. Good thing they aren’t around today to see what we have done with what they handed us…….. but there might be a ray of hope, but it ain’t in the spook !!!!!!!!
