A small group of outspoken whiners in California has decided that the Republic of California should secede from the US. Their motto? California is a Nation, not a state.
Now, this probably won’t manage to get on the ballot, but it is happening in California; so it’s entirely possible. I’ve been hearing about this movement ever since Trump won the election; because there’s always talk of states seceding from the union when someone they didn’t like becomes president. Normally reason prevails; but, again: California.
When I first heard of this, my thought was simple: if this comes to a vote, the rest of the country should get to vote on it as well. Such an action would, after all, affect the country as a whole. And they’re a liberal enclave always teaching the whole is more important than the individual. For the record, I would happily vote to let California secede, taking its 55 liberal electoral votes with it. That’d save the rest of the country billions in federal aid as well. With a win-win proposition like that?
