The Federal Government is NOT going to sit around while states try to pull out, they didn't in 1861.
Think of the logistics problems alone, the state would be trying to print money, collect taxes & raise an army all at once while the Fed is attacking us.
"Whereas the Constitution of the State of New Hampshire, Part 1, Article 7 declares that the people of this State have the sole and exclusive right of governing themselves as a free, sovereign, and independent State; and do, and forever hereafter shall, exercise and enjoy every power, jurisdiction, and right, pertaining thereto, which is not, or may not hereafter be, by them expressly delegated to the United States of America in congress assembled...."
Does that not, in essence, refer to secession? How do you remove your state from compliance with X bullshit measure without doing so?
And I see your point on funding, and am pretty certain that an army would present itself overnight, as we could field at least one milita from this board alone...
