What would become of the Federal military complexes that are scattered throughout the country?

The actual fighting in the Civil War began over precisely this issue, with the Yankee govt. claiming that it had a right to maintain a fortress (Ft. Sumpter) within a major seaport of a newly-independent State.

It would be almost impossible to form a new Confederacy today, because there are statist colonies (e.g. Austin, TX) within even the most freedom- and secessionist-minded States. There is an 0bammunist Fifth Column everywhere. 0bama could simply order the U.S. military to reconquer the liberated territories, as his hero Lincoln did.

So I guess our founders who really only had between 33%-50% of the population at one time shouldn’t have tried either..
