I would just like to say that I find the word "Whiggery" very amusing, and the phrase "border-state Whiggery" even more so. --Jfruh 02:01, 18 Jun 2005 (UTC)

"Whiggish" is also amusing--JimWae 02:09, 2005 Jun 19 (UTC)

Its one of those inherently funny words.--KrossTalk 06:38, 21 April 2006 (UTC)

Orange as CU's color?[edit]

Did the Constitutional Union Party really have orange as an official, or even unofficial, color? I find this somewhat dubious. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 209.22.88.90 (talk) 16:31, 1 April 2010 (UTC)

Centrism as Constitution Union Party's position[edit]

I would like the political position of "centrist" removed entirely from the. For one, the party consisted mostly of former Whigs, who were right of center. For two, the party was only active for a single election cycle, and really declined to take left, right, or centrists positions on anything. Thoughts?

Secessionism vs Disunion[edit]

These are obviously two terms claimed to be for the same thing, I will note that. One is an accurate descriptor (those in favor of a certain state or regions secessionist agenda), and disunion (those in favor of the total breakup of the union). No American political figure I am aware of, advocated for a total breakup of the Union. They merely argued for breaks along sectional lines. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 72.78.244.191 (talk) 04:55, 16 May 2013 (UTC)
