You seem to confuse the words 'respect' and 'like'.
 
A person can disklike a law without breaking it...

The Republican party's purpose behind this, was solely to pander to abolition-groups in order to gain congressional hegemony, with which to impose illegal taxes on the southern states.



That's quite a stretch.  Where did you divine this Republican strategy?
 
Even if your suppositions were accurate (which tit is not) why would such taxes be illegal? What taxes were levied on a only state or sectional basis?
