    Brits make an interesting case by using Lincoln to discredit the secessionists of the 1770's.

    It may be that the original declaration was illegal and treasonous, but the subsequent Revolutionary War righted the illegality and established the worlds recognition of the United States of America. The Confederacy attempted the same thing and lost. I've said before and I will say it again: sometimes people choose the court in which their case is settled. It can be the court-room, a wooded area of Ruby Ridge, a compoud in Waco Texas or the battlefields of the Eastern U.S. Illegal? Maybe. But it doesn't change the reality on the ground.
