It's worth noting that the whole point of the BOR was to restrict the Federal Government. Surely the states wouldn't have insisted on the BOR in order to restrict themselves nor would they have ratified the Constitution if they didn't think they could leave at any time.
A big part of our political trouble today is that everything has been federalized so a person who feels strongly about something no longer has the option of just moving to a state that does things their way.
