No seriously, let them have California.
Lets watch that one play out.
“Violence is absolutely and totally unacceptable,” Sanders said. “Anyone even thinking about violence, please do not tell anybody you are a Bernie Sanders supporter, because those are not the supporters that I want”
Hillary Clinton unequivocally condemned the violence that erupted against Donald Trump supporters at a rally in San Jose on Thursday night — but she also accused Trump of playing no small role in instigating it.
“He set a bad example,” Clinton said in an interview on CNN. “He created an environment in which it seemed to be acceptable for someone running for president to be inciting violence, to be encouraging his supporters. Now we are seeing people who are against it respond in kind.”
“It should all stop,” she said. “It is not acceptable.” Asked about the political fallout that could come from Trump's opponents pelting his supporters with eggs and throwing punches at them, Clinton would not engage.
“I just want it to end,” she said. “I don’t want to parse it. I don’t want to talk about the political implications. I want it to end.”

If my wife says something to disrespect me or offend me, I can punch her in the face?
My better half is a first generation Mexican immigrant, and she and her entire family think that these people are idiots. Just like ALL OF US should.

Would that be Mexico under the Spanish Empire or the French Empire? California was only under Mexican rule for a mere 25 years apart from when Mexico was ruled by Spain and France. They hardly have a claim. For that matter, when we speak of Mexicans, we are speaking of numerous Native American tribes as well as Spanish blood and some French blood. Even the Mayas and Aztecs and Toltecs didn't rule all of what we consider to be Mexico let alone adding California to the mix. A "Mexican" is simply a Native American from one f many tribes, or mixed tribe, from what we call South of the Border.

The reconquista crowd was around a LONG time before Donald Trump ever uttered a word they might have used as an excuse for violence. IMHO the reason they are starting to act out violently is because they perceive the ideology of fortifying our national sovereignty as as a threat to their "reconquest" of the southwest US. They already view Cali as part of Mexico,and see Trump as a threat to that position.
This is exactly whats happening. The question is why Democrats and left wing Americans support it.
