The very essence

The very essence of the USA is born of secession since the thirteen colonies seceded from England. So of course states may seceded. When someone joins the Boy Scouts, Rotary International or the Republican Party, they may "un-join" if they choose. How could we be called a "free country" if that were not the case? The same holds for states. If they wish to "un-join" the union, each is free to do so. I don't think is too likely to start another inter-state war like it did in the 1860s. There simply isn't enough money to fund it.
