There would be negative and positive results.
One of the most important lessons of history is that all civilisations fall eventually. Life would go on, be it more difficult or less difficult, but it would go on! A sign of the beginning of the 'fall' is morbid paranoia of the Elite in 'said civilisation'. Once that sign is detected, fall is inevitable. The more you 'squeeze' the more you 'lose'. It once appeared that America was a free society, but that has gone and so is the freedom of western civilisation, or at least the illusion of freedom.

America, the people are in better shape financial than they were six years ago in 2007. People have been
paying down debt and saving money. No one is buying unneeded items like they did pre recession. A lot of people are buying used items and shopping garage sales. The government is going to have to make cut backs and start buying only what really is needed or needs to be done. I can see Saturday mail ending, and development of green energy being focused on. People need to stop having so many children and expecting welfare to support them. I really don't care for the Obama phones, I see it as a waste. People need to work for these items.

Collapse? Youd be free.

Free to create a new economic system which benefits your people not the US Federal Reserve.

Youd be free from having to pay ever increasing prices for all commodities because their value would no longer be tied to the ever decreasing value of the US dollar.

We're not falling without taking the rest of you with us. I'm not saying your economies are reliant on ours either. I'm saying we're crazy and we'll send missiles flying every which way before we fully collapse.

The United States government isn't as important as it wants everyone to believe.

The US government failing would just end the -federal- government.

All states would merely become their own countries, some may even band together. They might even form mutual protection treaties like a Norther American NATO.

You need to learn about how the modern industrial system works. For pretty much every industry, parts are brought in from multiple locations. It's like a gear box. You remove a single gear, the whole system falls apart.

Removing the federal government, which regulates many of these transactions, would lead to chaos. That's not to say the federal government is good as is, because it's not, but the system we have now has been built around it. The federal govt is like the battery, however, when the battery is removed the gear box would short circuit and you'd lose some gears in the process.

This has nothing to do with modern industrial system and everything to do with the idea that the constitutions of the states that make up our union already have contingency plans in place for their continued survival in the event of the fall of the federal government. Take the fall of the Soviet Union as an example of what happens when a Super Power ceases to exist, and now take into account the the United States has a much stronger Rule of Law that allows for the States to exist outside of the Federation.
