Eh, this is the same blather as when Texas was threatening it. They need to vent, and they would face some tough reality if they did manage to separate. For one thing, only their largest metros are heavily in favor of this move. San Diego and the northern parts of Cali are likely not going to want to be taken for this ride by LA and San Fran.

I disagree vehemently... I think most Americans are middle of the road, the only difference is how do you reach the intended destination..

OT: If they did leave... one they have zero shot of resisting forced re-integration, cause lets face it... we had this tiff before and the Federal Govt made it perfectly clear there is no getting out... Two: They cant afford to leave, IF they could spend within their means sure... maybe... but I doubt it. The fact they cant come within a country mile of a balanced budget they wouldn't last 90 days before begging for some of the Govt sugar..

I agree completely. I think most Americans just go about their lives and their own politics and those of their neighbors aren't nearly as important as they are for a few months every 4 years. There has never been a time in history where everyone agreed with each other, where there is zero dissent among citizens, in any country or land, ever. I don't think it is possible with human beings.

Frankly I wouldn't want to live in that place I don't think. If there was an entire state of people just like me, absolutely nothing would get done. We would all just sit around and read books while smoking the yard and drinking coffee. It would be a terrible place to live.

You forgot Texas has demanded it's gold back, and is starting it's own reserve- as it knows damn well there is no way to secede if NY has your gold reserve....

San Diego is supported by the MCRD. Without Marines and all the cash that comes from them, what do you have? 40000 strippers with no income.

I use speech to text on iPad which cannot understand my accent…

It makes so many homonym errors that I miss many of them...

That was the first thing I went back and edited…

You'll notice my notes at the bottom next to the edit where I bemoan apples inability to understand me haha


Haha, well I hope you don't think I was being a spelling nazi. I was really just playing off your context of Texas being a successful state.

Is there a significant level of support for such an action?

It certainly appears that certain demographic groups may support such action.

There's not. Agreeing with the politics or not, it's just tactically better to remain one nation.
