I read an article that says the state of California has renewed an effort to secede from the union. Even though such efforts have previously failed, I relish the opportunity to see what California voters decide. It would also be interesting to see who is allowed to vote. I would put money on undocumented immigrants either getting a waiver or otherwise being permitted to vote.
Personally, even though I’ve spent nearly half my life in this state, I hope voters decide to secede. The ramifications for this state will be enormous, as people and businesses flee back over to the USA and a flood of new people from the south pour in. Yes, I would miss the California coast and temperate weather, but it would be a small sacrifice to ensure I remain under the freedoms guaranteed by our Constitution.
Marcus Evans, vice president of Yes California told the Los Angeles Times, “America already hates California, and America votes on emotions … I think we’d have the votes today if we held it.”
Well then, let’s vote!
Never miss a local story.
Mr. Trump, get ready to expand the border wall to the 1,000 miles or so between the new Californexico and Oregon, Nevada and Arizona.
