Let's began, no hardwords.

First, some history.


The United States of America was born when the 13 British colonies of Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Georgia, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maryland, South Carolina, New Hampshire, Virginia, New York, North Carolina, and Rhode Island rebelled against Great Britain, citing unfair taxation and little to no legal representation in British parliament, the legislative body of England. The rebellion succeeded, and the United States of America became an independant nation. The nation expanded slowly through the next few decades until 1803, when it purchased the Louisiana territory from France and nearly doubled in size at once. That accounts for the majority of northern states in the U.S., the ones in the east derive their legitimacy from colonial charters, the ones in the west from the Louisiana purchase.

@Blade-of-Truth I don't think anybody really understands what the debate is here, so go for it.

You are against the confiscation of the northern United States. Is this another Confederacy will rise issue? Your title is too confusing for people to understand, I highly recommend rephrasing the topic.

I don't think anyone can debate you, if they don't know what the debate is about.

Please explain the title. How can you confiscate any state, no less Northern states?
