The Declaration of Independence may say that but is it in the Constitution of the United States of America?

The Declaration was settled by arms against the British Crown.
If one of the states wants to secede, let them draft their own Declaration and see if the fedgov lets them go.
It was tried once and failed. I wouldn't bet it would succeed now.
