Calhoun demanded slavery should be allowed in western territories and runaway slaves should be brought back to their original owners in the South, it didn't matter if they were free or not. if u looked like a slave then u go down as a slave(fugitive slave law)....he said if this didn't happen, the south will leave the US(beginning of civil war)
