I voted Douglas. If secession is delayed by 4 more years, the imbalance between the sections makes a Civil War very unlikely.

Anyone that voted for Bell, or Douglas has thrown their vote away!

If Lincoln wins we in the South will secede! Don't believe me you just watch!
But....but, you can't secede!

I mean, think of all the good times we've had! We beat up Mexico, annexed Texas, had good old brawls in Congress! Not to mention all the good public discourse that led to the forcibly closing of newspaper offices!

Do you really want to throw that all away just because some tall guy with too short trousers ends up in the White House?

If Lincoln wins...…. Yep I'm good with it!

Just watch us! You say it can't happen, but we're past caring. I actually want Lincoln to win so we can secede.
