I would rather fix and preserve the union than break it.
It's terminal. It can be preserved. For instance: what's your plan for paying off the debt and meeting the unfunded mandates.
There isn't one that is possible, so we must default. Once that happens the legitimacy of FedGov will be about equal to the Soviet Union circa 1986.

Terminal? That's all melodramatic and stuff but it's hardly true.
In the grand scheme of things paying off the debt isn't all that difficult assuming we can stuff creating debt. When we cancel unfunded mandates it woudn't be defaulting. That ignores the gorilla in the room of course that legitimacy of our union is not based on our ability to pay off our debt or fund pie-in-the-sky mandates. It's our ability to defeat anyone that comes to collect.
