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

(DHS, FBI, FEMA, etc have been bad little boys. They need to be spanked and sent to timeout!)
What I'm saying it, just don't underestimate the difficulty of secession or any other revolutionary solution to our problems. Many posters seem to think that a few small arms in the hands of "bitter clingers" can save the country. The South had a ready-made military establishment in the form of U.S. Army vets who defected to the CSA. They confiscated the weapons, including artillery, of the Federal bases within their borders. They had a real army. They fought bravely. Yet they lost.
The 0bammunists would come at any popular "rebellion" with overwhelming military force, just as Chavez, the Iranian mullahs, and the Soviets have done. The only chance for success is if a substantial part of the existing armed forces turn on the regime.
