Think about it. If the American people no longer wanted to be under the Federal government, they could secede. Whether or not the action is seen as
legitimate by the government wouldn't matter. Once it's done, all of the obligations and debts taken on by the place known as "The United States
of America" would be null and void, since the entity which entered into contract with these obligations and debts wouldn't exist.
And, no longer would the Feds have any sway, influence, or effect on the states.
The problem is, there might be a fight. If a state decides "enough is enough" and they decide to bug out... the feds might come in militarily and
we would have a "civil war." (Could it be called a civil war if in fact it's one nation against a new one claiming independent sovereignty?)
The idea comes down to something simple. Do the people have a right to choose? If we secede, it's essentially a statement meant to say "I will
choose how to live my life. I will not let it be decided for me." If the government responds with force against this statement, then the government
is essentially saying "No, we will decide."
One scenario is clearly an expression of freedom. The other is not.
