What? what does that even mean? I don't think anybody has ever been stopped from leaving the country.

Somebody didn't read about the Civil War. That's what the war was over. The Southern states didn't feel represented so they began to leave (started with South Carolina with all the others slowly joining in.

Also while Andrew "Raging Cockhole" Jackson was president, South Carolina tried it (this was well before the Civil War) and he went in and beat the **** out of them for it.

So yeah, the Federal Government would come and lay down a beatdown. Because last time states tried it, they decided to make it illegal to leave.

the federal government has basically butchered the 10th amendment and states hardly have any say in anything anymore

Alright, well do you think that the nation that has been expanding for a hundred years would be okay with half of its land seceding? Half of its population leaving?

No nation would be okay with that.

Not that many people are stupid enough to just leave.

If you did what the government is doing now, in 1875, everybody would have seceded. I'd say there's plenty of reason to, but everybody's too lazy to leave behind their comforts to stop what's happening.

During the American civil war the southern states tried to secede and form their own country, but good ol' Lincoln said "NO!" and a lot of people died.

Recent polls say 60% believe the federal government has too much power and I remember a few months ago there was a poll that said about 1/3 of the population think there will be an armed revolution in the near future.
