What a desperate reach, the Declaration is not Law, the Articles of Confederation and the Constitution are.
If in fact, and as you claim, the Declaration was the Supreme Law, then why wasn't slavery made illegal by the Declaration?
Yours is a desperate reach from a desperate man.
Article XIII. Every State shall abide by the determination of the United States in Congress assembled, on all questions which by this confederation are submitted to them. And the Articles of this Confederation shall be inviolably observed by every State, and the Union shall be perpetual; nor shall any alteration at any time hereafter be made in any of them; unless such alteration be agreed to in a Congress of the United States, and be afterwords confirmed by the legislatures of every State.
And Whereas it hath pleased the Great Governor of the World to incline the hearts of the legislatures we respectively represent in Congress, to approve of, and to authorize us to ratify the said Articles of Confederation and perpetual Union. Know Ye that we the undersigned delegates, by virtue of the power and authority to us given for that purpose, do by these presents, in the name and in behalf of our respective constituents, fully and entirely ratify and confirm each and every of the said Articles of Confederation and perpetual Union, and all and singular the matters and things therein contained: And we do further solemnly plight and engage the faith of our respective constituents, that they shall abide by the determinations of the United States in Congress assembled, on all questions, which by the said Confederation are submitted to them. And that the Articles thereof shall be inviolably observed by the States we respectively represent, and that the Union shall be perpetual.
Now, go huff and puff all you want, it won't change the facts.
The Supreme Law of the Law is The Constitution, and the Articles of Confederation established a perpetual Union, removing the right to secede.
The articles of Confederation transferred sovereignty from the individual States to the United States, and when the Confederacy broke their covenant, they got their asses handed to them for trying to do so.
<< Yours is a desperate reach from a desperate man. >>
And here was I believing I had been engaged by a man who though Absolutely wrong in his interpretation of our nation's Founding Law, might at least have been rational.
And not, as it turns out, to have come huffing, puffing and but half-armed to this battle of wits he initiated.
Thank you for having shared.
