I'm curious (not poking holes) what would protect us from foreign opportunists when our entire military is dissolved. Militias? Local police forces (I like there odds more and more everyday)? I fear this wouldn't be safe if it was done through a vote. In reality it would more likely be done only by war, war that would be crippling. What's your take on my concern if you don't mind?

Yet another 'afterthought'. LOL
Assuming the entity known as the Unites States of America is dissolved....ceases to exist, so does the "I.O.U."s in the form of T-Bills etc. loses all value/collectability, after all, the is No U.S.A.!
This completely collapses the world economy.
All those potential 'hostile' nations now have their own internal issues with their own collapsed economies. China definitely collapses and it's 37 different languages promptly fall to regional warlords and dictators...like the old days.
Similar results for Russia and the EU. I won't even mention the Islamic Caliphate crowd, they'd be culling their own population faster than we could..
Bottom line, I doubt there's anyone out there even capable of invading North America in this scenario...
