Lets talk electricity. Where will you get it?
Wind farms? who will make the wind mills for you?
Will you buy power from existing power plants? What is your money source?
Your own power plants? Do you have coal and/or natural gas reserves? Do you have oil reserves? (say hello to OPEC)
refineries? steel factories? who will you import from? Again, what will you use as money?
Steam power? maybe, but, also requires natural resources.
Trucks? cars? wagons? ......... is there industry for any of it? If you buy it, again, what is your money source?
Modern machinery and house hold tools will be fun to come by.
These are all MODERN things.
Will the United Nations recognize you or ask the US to take care of its dirty laundry?
If you think Indian Nations are 3rd world now, wait and see at the onset of their independence.
Cheap labor rates may be your way out.

I was going to post something on the same lines. All the US would have to do is issue an embargo on the new Nations. Unlike Cuba they are land-locked. The US would effectively control all airspace surrounding their land & could block all traffic, by air, land or river. No chance of their pulling this off in my opinion.

Well happy day. This gives me hope that just maybe all peoples of the United States can/will/could do the same state by state. Withhold our federal tax money until we have a government run by the people for the people.

This is very interesting indeed, I wonder how the Government will deal with this?
I just found the website of Russell Means, under current events, he starts with a question:
I pose this question to American taxpayers; why do you allow your taxpayer money to be used to cause death and distruction to millions of people around the world? Yet you do not say a thing when your government refuses to spend any taxpayers money to relieve the disastrous destruction of a natural disaster such as the Tsunami or the 100,000 dying in the Sudan of starvation and millions in other parts of the world? To use and overuse colloquialism. What is wrong with this picture?
This question could actually apply to many nations, not only the U.S, but I am also interested in the answer...
