Obviously, the finer points of reality are lost on you!
Water is the single most important ingredient in survival, but let's not let this "minor" little detail muddy the...(oh yeah, "water"), right???
Thanks for playing!
Run along now.

Los Angeles will turn into an Island surrounded by ocean, it will be declared no longer part of the United States and becomes the deportation point for all people found undesirable or unfit to live in the new, moral America.
From the southeastern hills of Orange County to the northwestern shore of Malibu, the great wall excludes L.A. from the mainland. The president's first act as permanent Commander in Chief is Directive 17: once an American loses his or her citizenship, they are deported to this island of the damned, and they never come back.

That is funny, but what southern California has become is a border free illegal immigrants safe haven, taking money from the rest of the states to support the illegal immigration.

I don't disagree at all regarding CA being a mess of illegal immigration, but the fact still remains, California is one of the biggest net contributors in the US. Their problems are largely their problems, not ours collectively. They receive FAR less federal money than they put in.
Not that CA seceding will happen, I'm just saying, of it was possible, the US would have significant annual deficit increases, or several of the states essentially dependent on aid from other states would have to start fending for themselves.
