    There was no place for reconsideration or revocation, except through revolution or through consent of the States.
    Texas v. White explicitly left open the opportunity for a state to leave the union by consent of the other states.

    Finding a coastal state the rest of the U.S. would be willing to let go, then positioning that state for secession by consent would require so many years, so much money, so much loyalty and cohesion, and such willingness to cause the rest of the Union so much heartburn that we'd be glad to let the bastards go -- it essentially can't be done. Much too astronomical a cost in time and money for almost no benefit.

    But White did leave the possibility open fwtw.

    YES WE DID -- AGAIN. FOUR MORE YEARS.
