You missed by point about Amnorix. It was merely to point out there was a debate on this, rather extensive with links if you willing to open your mind to some more knowledge you may be unaware of. So you can use the search. You can see the excerpts from papers at that time.
This whole govt is not elected by the people though. The congress is. The president is elected by the Electoral College.
And even if it wasn't, a state has a natural right to leave and there's nothing in the Constitution that forbids it.
Remember we're a Constitutional Republic not a democracy.
“The power to declare war, including the power of judging the causes of war, is fully and exclusively vested in the legislature.” ~ James Madison, Father of the Constitution
“We do not believe in aggressive or preventive war. Such war is the weapon of dictators, not of free democratic countries like the United States.”~ Truman, Sept 1, 1950
