So how do you suggest we go about abolishing all three branches of government? The only entity that could do that is the military you love to hate. Or do you honestly think that a bunch of people with rifles and Kevlar vests will band together and take down a government that has tanks, fighter jets, and thousands of nuclear weapons at its disposal?
And let's say that this band of people with rifles and Kevlar vests magically succeeds and takes down the entire Federal government. Then what? Do you believe that everything will be peaches and cream and this country of 320 million people will just magically start getting along if we hit the reset button and started from scratch?
If so then I encourage you to get your head checked out.

There are plenty of states where normalcy exists. I'd say it's pretty normal in Oregon and Washington. It's also normal in every state I've traveled to. I'll admit I haven't been to Mississippi and Alabama, but even deeply red states are pretty normal if you actually go visit them and talk with the average people living there.
A nearby example for me is Idaho. That state is as Republican as it gets, but I met some awesome people while traveling through the state on my way to Yellowstone last year. We may not have voted for the same Presidential candidate, but that doesn't mean they are terrible people.
I know how you like to make fun of me for reading books and all that jazz, but books taught me what happened the last time a state seceded from the union. If you aren't aware of what happened, I encourage you to read up on the time period between December 20, 1860 and May 9, 1865.
Here's a hint - the federal government didn't take kindly to states seceding from the union and over 620,000 people lost their lives in the conflict. And that was when the entire United States only had 31,443,321 people. California alone has over 39 million people today. You do the math of how many people might die if California tries to secede.
But who am I kiddin? Let's just dig our heads in the sand and believe that the Federal government would just sit idly by while the most populous (former) state begins to build up its own army and navy to protect its newfound borders. Or do you think they will be a neutral country that doesn't need to protect itself against the country they voted to leave?
Oh, and what foreign countries do you think would sell the weapons and ammunition the Free State of California will need to protect itself against the most powerful military on earth? Just a reminder that the country they voted to leave has thousands of nuclear weapons and a massive military industrial complex at its disposal...Good luck, California!!
