150 YEARS OF EXCUSES FOR GOVERNMENT HYPOCRISY...will it ever end?
March 2, 1861 The NORTHERN Congress (7 States have already had left the Union) overwhelmingly passes the Corwin Amendment (Permanent Slavery) stating…
“No amendment shall be made to the Constitution which will authorize or give to Congress the power to abolish or interfere, within any State, with the domestic institutions thereof, including that of persons held to labor or service by the laws of said State.” 36th Congress 2nd Session
March 4, 1861 Inauguration Day
“I understand a proposed amendment to the Constitution which amendment, however, I have not seen has passed Congress, to the effect that the Federal Government shall never interfere with the domestic institutions of the States, including that of persons held to service. To avoid misconstruction of what I have said, I depart from my purpose not to speak of particular amendments so far as to say that, holding such a provision to now be implied constitutional law, I have no objection to its being made express and irrevocable.” Abraham Lincoln - 1st inaugural speech
