‘California is a nation, not a state’: A fringe movement wants a break from the U.S.
About 15 people huddled in a luxury apartment building, munching on danishes as they plotted out their plan to have California secede from the United States.
“I pledge allegiance, to the flag, of an independent California,” Geoff Lewis said as he stood in a glass-walled conference room adorned with California’s grizzly-bear flag and a sign reading “California is a nation, not a state.”........“California is different from America,” said Marcus Ruiz Evans, one of the movement’s co-founders, as he sat on the patio of a Starbucks in Fresno. “California is hated. It’s not liked. It’s seen as weird.” .......To Read More.....
My Take - I remember not so long ago when there was all this talk about Texas seceding from the Union and how the left heaped scorn on that. Welllll, the worm has turned and as the kid in the Little Rascals used to say.........Remarkable!
But what exactly is their big beef? Their big beef is ..... they won't be able to control others. The left is all about control of others and now since they can't be in control they want to be rid of the "others". The weird and the wacky just can't stand not being able to impose their will and vision of reality on people who just want to be left alone.
So then......go.....and good riddance. At least until all the "others" decide you're a menace to the nation and declare war on you on some Monday before breakfast - conquer you before lunch - impose martial law by dinner time - turn California into anywhere from two the four territories by Tuesday - appoint territorial governors by Wednesday - create a brand new law enforcement agency called the California Rangers fashioned after and recruited from the Texas Rangers by Thursday - On Friday all schools and higher education - at least the ones left after a bunch are closed - will be taken over by the territorial government who will fire anyone they don't like and hire only those who value traditional standards.
Since the left is so hot about forcing everyone who disagrees with them out of business or out of their jobs - it seem fair that be the standard used by the territorial governments - only in reverse.
The following week deport all the resisting leftists, especially all the protesting college snowflakes, and all the Hollywood crowd who are so in love with leftists and their regimes. Any leftist who flees will be apprehended as fugitives from justice and sent to Venezuela....or better yet.....North Korea as an experiment in free speech and violent protest. By the end of the month all illegal aliens will be gathered up and deported.
If we can only get Californians to agree to leave. However, as weird and loony as California is....how much do you wanna bet we wouldn't even be able to force them to leave.
However, there might be an option that many may like. If the movement to secede gets a lot of strong support how could they disagree with the idea of conservative north California seceding from the rest of California. That's how we got West Virginia.
