Constitutional Rights for Loyalists

Let it be constantly kept in mind, that rebels and traitors have no constitutional rights that loyal men are bound to respect  — so long as they remain in rebellion against the Government.  The rights, benefits, protections and guarantees contained in the Constitution are intended for loyal citizens, and not for armed rebels, who repudiate the Constitution, and trample it under foot.  – Leavenworth Conservative.
