Given the choice, would you rather live in the USA as it is today or in your state under only the rule of your state and city/town/whatever government? This means no federal taxes, no federal courts, no postal service (your state would probably need to build one from scratch), a state army, international relations with the other 49 states, etc. The laws of your state would be enumerated in the state legal code and state constitution.
Generally, posters on DP seem to believe that the federal government holds far too much power and the states should possess more. Would you be willing to live at the other end of that spectrum?
