    No. Your site has a lot of erronious facts. America's forefathers, the men that lead the revolution did commit treason when writing the Declaration of Independace, as they where revolting agasint their King. However the Continental Congress accept this and the original 13 colonies ( hence the 13 stripes on the flag) became the United States of America. Today states have the power to leave the United States of America(known as the Union), and only one has done it when there was a United States of America - Texas, and then came back. President Lincoln was not even born during the revolution or around the immediate time. When the South left the Union it was because pf President Lincoln, he did not force them out. He did not want slavery to grow, in the West in states like Texas, the California terriroty etc slaves where free men. Slavery was like technology today - it made money and lots of it and its was cheap. However, Lincoln wanted the USofA back together more than anything and if he could have done it with slavery entact, he would have. (Lincolns speach is printed near his statue in Washington DC in a room beside the steps). Also America is a Democratic Republic, and many of our politicans today lie in the Right Authorian Quad on a polictal spectrum, far from the liberal left of Nelson Mandela. On this site, the updated one, they target Social security numbers and how states named are shortened TX,NV. Social Security is a 20th century invention and was not prior to WW2. After tha the United States became a welfare state, meaning the government supports its citizens through taxation. We are charge social security taxes, medicare taxes which are dispersed to the states to support low income, and the eldery, they are away of keeping track of people so they can be taxed properly. Unlike the Brisitsh government, our president is not a figure head. He has powers that can over rule acts and laws placed by congress. This is his veto power, however it is rarely used. Also, our forefathers, the ones that wrote the Declaration of Independance gave the citizens the right to over throw an oppresive government much like they did to the King of England.
