I think the feds would use force if necessary to stop a secession. They haven’t cared about law during my lifetime, that’s for sure.

Yes, but the point I was making was that 1) there is a legal way to do it (which needs a supermajority of all states approval)and 2) this is a threat of becoming a Territory, not seceding.

And the threat is legal (one could argue, is actually legally required), and it's actually beneficial for the State.

That's for sure. What the country will find interesting if this happens is that the Feds would invade a state to keep if from leaving but do nothing about a the very visible Mexican invasion of the Southwest and the Mexican government's attempt to grab American states through demographics. People are going to notice. They're noticing now!

And right there is the real reason for the 2nd Amendment. It isn't a catch 22, really. More like a catch 21.5.

I'd drive to Montana and line up with them (the people of Montana that is).

“I think the feds would use force if necessary to stop a secession.”

Yea, I can see the Feds now, surrounding Montana and using a bullhorn telling them to “Put down your guns and come out!”

I've long noted that if you're going to get into a fight with someone, it's easier to win if he's distracted by having his pants set on fire early on in the dispute.
