How about

you do some reading. Here is a very short list:

Ron Paul, "A Foreign Policy of Freedom"
Smedley Butler, "War is a Racket"
Randolph Bourne, "War is the Health of the State"
Chalmers Johnson, "The Sorrows of Empire"

I don't advocate violence against the government - that would only make us as immoral and corrupt as they are.

The Constitution is a dead letter. As government derives its supposedly "just" powers from the consent of the people, the people have an inherent right to withdraw their consent. This can be done via nullification, and more importantly through SECESSION.

Now tell me how the question of the nature of the American Union was settled at Gettysburg and Appomattox.
