    The Civil War also meant that there is no way to toss off the shackles of a tyrannical, corrupt, UNCONSTITUTIONAL Federal government, that has usurped the powers of the states as elucidated in the Constitution. Further, the Federal government has created a massive regulatory apparatus that unilaterally passes , what are for all practical purposes , laws that have not been voted upon by the US Congress, in direct conflict with the Constitution.
    The war removed the absolute last recourse the states and citizens can employ to exist and live as free citizens; that is seek INDEPENDENCE from a tyrannical Federal government.
