The irony of this in the context of the left's narrative about Russian interference in the elections is just too much.

It's like living in a Lewis Carroll book.

Good luck replacing their farm production.


What if anything would change about their farm production. A store in Illinois buys oranges from the state of California vs. A store in Illinois buys oranges from the republic of California. What's the difference?

Yet Dems are all up in arms up about claiming Russia was helping to hack to put Trump in office. Makes one question what is this and is it part of it a plan to help Cal Exit fail further. Well, not that it really needs the help.

So if this goes up for a vote, do non California residents get to vote?

That would be just great.

Leaving the Union requires a national vote !!

The one percenter Progressives and Marxists who have taken over power positions in the State are trying to speak for everyone there. Thought they taught everyone within bullhorn range to hate one percenters?

The rest of the West Coast and other close states should, at the very least, have a say so, being the closest neighbors.

Exactly my thoughts when I saw this article...

What better place to launch the narrative overseas, than the country that triggered you into moving to CalExit...

It's really fitting this movement would station themselves in Russia, seeing how Russia has been working diligently for decades on the balkanization of America.

The Supreme Court will never make any ruling that allows for California to secede. It will be the same result as the last secession.

why is anyone going to have to " replace thier farm production " ?????????????????

the obvius qyestion is - what is the independant californian agricultural sector going to do without the marked of 270 million americans it used to have right on its doorsetep

mexico cannot " eat more "

and attempting to ship californian produce " world wide " would :

A - introduce extra pricing for shipping

B - druve down prices as it would create a glut in the market

lastly - you need to look at how dependant california is on the rest of the CONUS in other sectors

start with electricity supply - thats a peach < pun intended >

The Supreme Court doesn't even have to be involved.
Constitutional Convention
Proposed Amendment for California to secede
38 states need to ratify
It would be damn close
If it's ratified, then what?
What's tje SCOTUS going to do?
What can they say? Nada
Zilch
Zip
Nothing
They ARE NOT THE ULTIMATE AUTHORITY
The states are, as was intended
End of conversation

Someone would have to challenge it in the courts for it to get to the SCOTUS.

Who's going to do that? Does anyone outside of California really want California?

I don't know, but if you use one more question mark, I might be able to figure it out.



the obvius qyestion is - what is the independant californian agricultural sector going to do without the marked of 270 million americans it used to have right on its doorsetep

They won't still be right there on the doorstep? They won't still be willing to pay?



mexico cannot " eat more "

Sure they can. They have quite the appetite.



and attempting to ship californian produce " world wide " would :

It's already world wide.




lastly - you need to look at how dependant california is on the rest of the CONUS in other sectors

No I don't.

It's an absurd hypothetical.

Redirect the water to Arizona... problem solved. let Cali make their own water from the ocean.. win win


Actually, if you want to kill two birds with one stone build pipelines from the ocean to the Southwest deserts, utilize solar distillation to create tons of fresh water. Hell, utilize 20 ft diameter pipes and make a wall out of it.


I think we all know the notion of a Calexit is an absolute joke. But in this imaginary scenario, doesn't California own most of the coast?


Who really knows, the left thought Trump running for President was a joke. If that is what the state wants, let them do it. Life is to short to be unhappy.

Very true, the vaunted tech and aerospace industry is very reliant on government contracts. No longer a member of the union? No more government contracts. CRASH!

It's probably a bar in Key West, open only during Fantasy Fest.
