  •  So that's the reason (0+ / 0-)

    Abraham Lincoln and Congress allowed West Virginia, Kansas and Nevada to form...

    There were 33 states in the Union in 1860.  11 seceeded in 1861.  The USA maintained that the states that seceeded were part of the US; according to the WND theory, a quorum would not have been formed had these been the only states that existed for the 1864.

    So, to get around the 2/3 rule WND claims to exist, 3 more states 'magically' appeared by 1864.  Abe Lincoln is a conjurer.

    Then again, most teabaggers think of Lincoln in less flattering terms.

    It's about time I changed my signature.
