California has the 6th largest economy in the world. Yes the world. That's one state in the US that has a larger economy than most other countries in the world.


They also get substantial government contracts, something like 20% of them. Pull them, Cali takes a major hit. Plus the millions of Patriots who would flee. Plus the free trade across state lines that would no longer exist. Plus the military bases that would be pulled out, etc. Cali better consider their options wisely, I could see them becoming Argentina, 1st to 3rd in a flash.

What are you talking about??? You still on that kick about Cali. leaving the nation???

If it did happen, which it won't because it's just stupid and not ever going to happen anyway. But if it did. We'd be fine.

As much as you'd love to see Cali. separate from the US, I'm afraid you're just stuck with us.

Besides, you enjoy all the food we produce just like everyone else does regardless of how ungrateful you are about it.

The only defense I see of this activity is 'excusing bad behavior with more bad behavior.'

For those of you invoking states rights, just stop it. This is something that was in the original Constitution pre-Amendments and the states who ratified it were well aware of the verbiage. Again, just because something has been done and not challenged (yet) does not mean that the 'something' is legal or correct.

up until the civil war it was legal for states to leave if they felt the leadership was not abiding by its duties.

Agreed. What does that have to do with the thread topic?

That is because most of US is crap to foreign entities unlike California. If California breaks ties very bad things will happen to the state itself. Just what the US gov wants a possible WW3. The other states aren't even united like it says in the country. What makes you think Cali might want to join the suicide road?

You have to look at other states too, not just Cali. There are many reasons. It seems that Asia is the one moving California forward and bringing money over. They move on they maybe screwed, but have a chance to make a difference. They stay, they are totally screwed either ways. Why pick something worst than it should be?

China maybe still burning coal. It doesn't mean Cali would.
