    So, no. You can't find the decades of case law.

    White House Chief of Staff John Kelly on Monday said, "the lack of an ability to compromise led to the Civil War."

    ...

    "There are certain things in history that were not so good, and other things that were very, very good," Kelly said. "I think we make a mistake as a society, and certainly as individuals, when we take what is accepted as right and wrong, and go back 100, 200, 300 years or more and say, 'What Christopher Columbus did was wrong.'"
    Damn it Kelly I wanted to like you.
    You had better pay your guild dues before you forget. You are 113 months behind.

    The Government did it several times before, ask them. He didn't say anything was right or wrong, just that it could have been avoided with compromise. It could have.

    Weak. The correct answer is there is no compromise to slavery.

    You're assuming my problem with his statement is the veracity of it rather than the sentiments he was expressing in the context of his interview.

    Except there was. Many times. If you had been born and lived in the early to mid 1800s, you'd probably have a slightly different mindset too.

    Lincoln was even willing to compromise. The South wasn't having any of it though.
