    Please see: Grant, Sherman, Sheridan, et al.

    considering much of the infustructure and military is not state owned but owed to the federal government, the states who try to leave the union would find themselves bankrupt and powerless.

    In theory, yes. But since conservatives are trying to abolish the IRS and dont like paying taxes themselves whose going to care if blue states only pay what the red states pay?
