California secession group to hold meet-up at State Capitol

California CapitolAn organization hoping to facilitate the secession of California from the Union is holding a meet and greet on the Capitol steps in Sacramento next Wednesday, November 9, 2016, or, the day after the presidential election.

The Yes California Independence Campaign, which is based in San Diego, is aiming to qualify a citizen’s initiative in 2018 to get a referendum for secession on the ballot in 2019. They’ll be in Sacramento to garner support for their initiative.

“In our view,” a statement on its website reads, “the United States of America represents so many things that conflict with Californian values, and our continued statehood means California will continue subsidizing the other states to our own detriment, and to the detriment of our children.”

And it appears the organization has been considering its strategy for quite a while now. On its site, you’ll find a link to a 33-page “Blue Book” wherein the organization answers any hypothetical questions about the state becoming its own country. The details for the secession — dubbed the #CalExit — include such topics such as “Will we join the United Nations?” and “Will we have our own Olympic team?”.

    California values? Let’s see…they have high taxes, crushing regulations, little tolerance for traditional values and regular environmental disasters. It’s odd that a state that is so interested in environmental regulations has done such a poor job protecting their environment from forest fires and mudslides–which are caused to a certain degree by bureaucratic mismanagement.

    We are likely to see more talk of secession around the country in the years ahead. President Obama has been a divider rather than a uniter. Hillary Clinton is likely to appoint equally divisive people for her administration and into judgeships. When we look at most electoral maps we see the great divide present in our nation. I would be interested in seeing a nation that was free from Washington’s stifling powers.

    I don’t blame none of that crap this is all about Mexico eventually wanting to get back California and they’re going to do it if we don’t get Mexico out of the United States. I will guarantee you these stupid idiots in California if they did succeed from United States it wouldn’t be six months before they would try or someone would try to rejoin the Mexican Government. I have seen articles and I know for a fact that the politicians in Mexico openly will state that they won’t come up on your back they believe that California was stole from them and these idiots in California who want to succeed should realize what they’re doing it wouldn’t be a year before Mexico would be trying to get them back into the fold

    To quote a wrestler (Daniel Bryan), YES, YES, YES, please do secede and become part of Mexico already since the whole state is ‘OWNED” by ILLEGALS AND ANCHOR BESTARDS. If anyone can vote for this to happen, I gladly say YES, YES, YES.

    I’d rather see the illegal government run unions be banned from our government, it’s a major part of what is wrong with this state and why your representation is so screwed up, it is why rising cost are attributed to this state government and why this states government is unaffordable……what good is secession when you have dumbasses running the government now?
