California submitted a proposal to the State Department on Thursday to secede from the United States. If they do, the GOP will be unstoppable in future presidential elections.
They call it "Calexit," a name lifted from the UK's "Brexit" departure from the European Union. It would require voters to repeal part of California's constitution declaring the state an inseparable part of the U.S.
A recent poll fount about 33 percent of liberal residents there would support a secession due to their opposition to President Trump, but no reference was made of him in the proposal.
If the proposal qualifies for the ballot and is approved by voters, it would be the first step to a future vote of whether the state would become a country in and of itself--a haven for liberal skateboarders and pot smokers.
Hopefully they will leave and likely implode.
Secretary of State Alex Padilla said that the group behind the proposal Yes California Independence Campaign, will be allowed to go ahead and collect the approximate 600 thousand signatures needed to put the plan on the ballot.
"In our view, the United States of America represents so many things that conflict with California values [smoking dope, abortion on demand, free condoms, free contraceptives, free schools, and free liberal-only speech] and our continued statehood means California will continue subsidizing the other states to our own detriment, and to the detriment of our children," the Yes campaign's website says.
This is not the first attempt to leave the union and establish California as a nation.
This proposed constitution amendment, titled California Nationhood, would ask voters to repeal language saying the U.S. Constitution is the supreme law. If approved, it calls for a 2019 vote asking Californians: "Should California become a fee, sovereign and independent country?"
"America already hates California, and America votes on emotions," Marcus Evans, vice president of Yes California told the Los Angeles Times. "I think we'd have the votes today if he held it."
In order to qualify for the ballot, the 600 thousand signatures must be submitted by July 25th.
Hopefully they will secede and another wall goes up between the nation of California and the United States of America.
I suspect President Trump will make it difficult for Californians to visit the United States unless properly vetted.
