    but all those fox-heads won't get it.

    Lincoln's choices were to let the nation fall apart, and establish the precedent that any state could leave when it felt like it (which would have led to unending BS), or oppose secession with military force.

    He made many eloquent arguments on this point. One was that it would be tough to sell US bonds if the purchasers knew that the US government could disappear at any time.
