I think seceding states would turn into a big mess. They'd be fighting over who was supposed to be in charge 10 seconds after seceding. There would be no cohesiveness and the remaining states would tax the crap out of the separatists.
Texas would be the 14th largest economy in the world the day it seceded before it started keeping the 80 cents of every dollar that gets sent to Washington. And I seriously doubt Texas would put up with unfettered illegal immigration, massive entitlement programs and inner city poverty pimps busing ineligible voters to the polls.

I'm thinking your not understanding the concept. Taxing across national boundaries is pretty hard to pull off.
The First Continental Congress couldn’t agree on anything, AND you could try to ‘tax’ States that seceded, but it wouldn’t work.
Stop and think about what you said.
