I was unable to find any graphs so instead I posted information from primary sources that demonstrated the tariff system was an issue to the southern states before the Civil War. This information is not rhetoric but from valid sources.
No, you never proved that tariffs were an economic hindrance, you posted rhetoric that claimed tariffs "could" be an issue. But you cannot prove it through graphs and charts that could back up your claims, because tariffs were not a hindrance from 1832-1860. If your sources don't show any economic data, they're not valid. They are valid in how you engage in history, but not in historiography.
