IIRC there is only one state that can leave the union. Montana, Nebraska, or possibly Wyoming. They joined with the agreement that they could leave without penalty if their legislature so voted.

Being landlocked would cause serious problems as would being able to defend their borders or conduct business with the remaining states.

Leaving the union sounds attractive but it doesn’t make sense with the exception of large states with ports.

So... Congress ignores the Constitution for years, yet you think that the States should obey the Constitution. Interesting thought process you have going on there.

Montana has a more than 500 mile border with Canada. Although a port would be great, it is not necessary. Hell, palm trees would be great too...

Ever hear of New Orleans?
