Quote of the Day: Alexis de Tocqueville!

From "Democracy in America"
"The Union was formed by the voluntary agreement of the States; in uniting
together they have not forfeited their nationality, nor have they been reduced
to the condition of one and the same people. If one of the states chooses to
withdraw from the compact, it would be difficult to disapprove its right of
doing so, and the Federal Government would have no means of maintaining its
claims directly either by force or right"

Obviously, he was wrong about the force part. I guess he didn't foresee a racist, tyrannical bastard becoming President and going to war to prevent it some 20 years later.
