One depressing aspect of the problem is that even those nuclear bombs we have decommissioned are not really dead and buried with a stake through their hearts. There's something about the "pit" that I don't really understand, but I think there's a way the old ones could come back to life, if we ever actually needed a few thousand extra nukes, say to destroy a dozen or so more planets after we finish up with Earth.
and yet you would not support states dropping out of the federal system. The allure of empire, political power and national social programs like the EITC. If the US was more like the EU it would not have a go it alone FP, which would lead to a dismantling of our ICBMs and sub fleet.
