What are you talking about? A confederation is an alliance without the centralized federal component. Any sovereign state is free to go if necessary, but with the diversity of agriculture, industry, and production throughout the US, it would have been more advantageous to stay unified. Instead of forcing unification with boot-heel and gun, the states stay unified through the benefit gained by the association with neighboring states.
