The thing about it is - even if they didn't take it from you, it would be very difficlut to just make your own country.
Say I declared my house and yard, "Frogsland" and the US gov said, "Ok".
However, they would also be within their rights to embargo me if they wanted. No goods in or out of Frogland.
Declare that citizens of the small but proud country of Frogsland coudn't pay for things in our mightly national currency, the Froggo, or set some
silly exchange rate. Heck, its not like they don't just print more dollars when they need them.
Citizens of Frogsland might have to pass thru customs to go to the mailbox for goodness sake - and might have to pay international postage rates to
Sadly, even if they just didn't take it from you outright they have 1000's of ways to make such an undertaking very painful.
I think if I tried it I'd have to soon lower the beloved flag of Frogsland and rejoin the union.
