Just as from my pov the US government isn't anything I should be compelled to obey being even more unjust than a King. So if our founders could do it, why can't I?
Enough people got together and was willing and able to used the needed force to imposed the government they care for in the case of the US colonies.
In the end, all governments and all societies rest on the used of force.
So if you can bring enough force to bear you do not need to obey the US federal government but otherwise you are either going to end up behind bars or dead.
Case in point would be the Confederate States of American who after a four years contest was found not to be able to bring to bear enough force to become an independent nation.
