Let's chuck it

I'd prefer constitutionalism over the POS we have now, but I think it would be better to dissolve it and become 50 sovereigns to start, with maybe a goal to be 10,000 states later on. Something like that.

The federal level is good for war, corporatism and systemizing a poor population. Your local govt does mostly benign useful things like fix potholes and put out fires and mows the grass at parks. All of which can be done privately, but wouldn't those be nice conversations to have, like whether garbage collection should be communal or not. No one would even bother being libertarian anymore. You'd just move a few miles to the next community that more reflected your preferences.
