Constitution and War

I've been thinking lately that Americans don't deserve their Constitution. Its not observed by the lawmakers anymore and the people that vote for them don't really care. I think the reason for this is probably the fact that the majority of Americans are not Christian anymore. That they were when the Constitution was written and adopted is beyond dispute and that's what made the United States a country. The Constitution is the only thing that New Jersey and Oklahoma have in common. Take that away and why should Massachusetts care what Mississippi does? I guess what I'm saying is that the United States established by the Constitution is gone. We know it ended in 1865 because what happened then is one set of states conquered another set of states. The American people of course have no idea this is what happened. They think that this war was fought to end slavery. It is very hard to convince them otherwise. And not because of a lack of argument or a lack of historical record. No, its difficult because they are so stupid. Really. Incredibly stupid. Slavery was ended by the 13th amendment to the US Constitution, which was ratified on December 6, 1865. That's just an ordinary historical fact. And if you know anything about how amending the Constitution works, you will know that nowhere in the Constitution does it say "300,000 Yankees must die before any amendment to this Constitution will be considered." And yet, in demonstration of the overwhelming stupidity of public-educated Americans, this is what must be believed in order to also believe that the war was fought to end slavery! NO...I continue to stand by my oft-repeated statement: Slavery had absolutely nothing to do with the war. Not even a speck on the horizon of causes. Slavery could have been abolished as soon as the Southern states terminated their voluntary union with the other states. The 13th amendment could have been ratified by the remaining states by the summer of 1861 easily. And, if those states had had any interest whatsoever in abolishing slavery this is what would have happened.
