Well… …bye. Cali Secession WILL be allowed on ballot

Californians who want their state to secede from the United States can now start collecting signatures to put the initiative on the 2018 ballot.

The Yes California Independence Campaign has been around for at least two years, but the election of President Trump only saw increased momentum for the so-called Calexit cause. Trump lost California by more than 4 million votes, fueling interest in a Calexit — a play on the United Kingdom’s “Brexit” campaign that saw that country’s voters decide to leave the European Union.

The California secretary of state’s office announced that the group could begin collecting signatures on Thursday.

The group needs 585,407 signatures from registered voters over the next 180 days to qualify for the ballot.

If the 2018 ballot initiative passes, it would force a 2019 statewide special election asking voters if they want California to become an independent country.
Supporters first proposed a ballot measure to the state attorney general’s office in November.

According to a summary prepared by the state attorney general, if the measure got onto the ballot and passed, it would repeal clauses in the California Constitution stating that the state is an “inseparable part of the United States” and that the U.S. Constitution is the “supreme law of the land,” the Los Angeles Times reported.

    If they left, were would they get the funds for all of the Federal Subsidies to pay for the obama phones, schools, infrastructure, hospitals, social medicine/healthcare? From all the fat cats in Hollywood? Good luck with that!

    In 1860-61 any number of Southners voted to succeed and it didn’t do them one speck of good. As for myself I welcome Kalifornia’s attempt to go it alone.
    It will give us a good chance to exercise our 2nd Amendment rights when they are forcibly reunited with the rest of the nation. What is it about Democrats that make them such secessionist pigs anyway?

    Ash, Trash, commies, socialists, femmenazis, freaks, and racist toxic waste.
    Maybe Mexico will start a war with them, and take over.
    GOOOOOOOOOD !!!!!!!!!!@@@

  • justinwachin says:

    That’s fine with me. With California out of the picture the Republicans will find it easier to win the White House. They need to be presented a bill for their share of the national debt.

    It will be interesting to map out the results for such a vote. A large portion of the state geographically may want to remain in the United States.

    It’s unlikely that secession would be allowed to happen regardless of the vote. I’m going to guess that once the union begins to fall apart other states would want to leave and form their own countries. Hold the Union together is what the Civil War was about.

      No check with any black people and they will tell you the civil war was about slavery, but that is wrong also.

      1. justinwachin says:

        So what do you think the Civil War was about if it wasn’t related to states secession and slavery?

        1. Roy Fredrichsen says:

          The Civil War was mostly about States Rights, slavery just got mixed in with the Northern Army jusification for invading the Southern states.

      Californika !

    2. Roy Fredrichsen says:

      Hey! How about Mexicali. Has a certain Hispanic ring to it. Maybe Mexico will annex it.

  • geraldcuvillier says:

    Good riddance!

  • Bob says:

    Dems better not let this happen. Hillary won CA by like 5 million votes. Cut those out of the mix and she would loose the Popular Vote by 2.2 million. Then how could they call President Trump “illegitimate” if he wins the popular vote?

    1. John Last says:

      The whole friggin “state” is illegitimate!
      Mexico says so. So do the majority of Latinos “living HERE”!
      Build the phreaking WALL !!!
      BUILD IT along the Southern Border, to the Eastern Borders of the “pacifist ” (Pacific) Coast states, North to Canada !!!!

      1. Roy Fredrichsen says:

        John Last- I still think letting Mexico annex it would relieve us of a bunch trouble from radical Democrats like Nancy Pelosi.

  • dmttbt says:

    If we lose California what will we be posing? Al Gore and the rest of the deplorables.

    1. Bob says:

      Watch that…I am a proud filling in the basket of deplorables. Don’t go throwing Frankenstein in with us.

  • usatravler says:

    After enabling illegals to get licenses and register to vote by mail, this is like wolves getting loose in the hen house and voting for chicken dinners. The outcome could easily be determined by voting illegals.

    1. dmttbt says:

      Then so be it, let them deal with the thieves that others have had to deal with.

    2. John Last says:

      Poetic JUSTICE !

  • Rock says:

    Good riddance ! Does this also eliminate the whining liberal/Democart Hollywood scum form theaters and T.V.s ?

    1. dmttbt says:

      The thing about the democrat hollywood scum is that they want to preach & cry and say they will leave the country if Trump gets elected. Now that he has been elected they have gone nowhere. Gee they would make excellent politicians, they already have the lying part figured out. What about Miley Cyrus when is she leaving? Alec Baldwin hasn’t left, he is to busy making fun of Trump and his New York accent. Is that the first time Baldwin ever heard someone from New York? Alec Baldwin promised to move out of the country, what is he waiting for.
      The women who were marching in protest about equal rights for women before he even took office must be psychic or psychotic.Those who are marching about abortion rights, have the same option on that as does everyone else. If you do not want an unwanted pregnancy don’t have unprotected sex. If you are against abortion, don’t have one.

        that sounds to complex for most of these people.

  • Pat Cross says:

    bye bye, you California assholes

  • Peter Smith says:

    The border wall will be getting quite a bit longer with this development. Turn north at Arizona/Cal border, continuing on to the Nevada/Cal border, turning west when we hit Oregon, continue to the Pacific Ocean. Then the people of California can have as many illegals as they want and as many sanctuary cities as they want. Do you think they’re gonna mind when we deliver their share of our current national debt? With their current population, that should be $2 to $3 trillion, I wonder if they understand this ……… I am gonna start planning my “Calexit” party, it’s gonna be a doozy ………

        I am glad your internet porn business is going so well.

    2. dmttbt says:

      Why would anyone worry about spending money we don’t have? We have been doing that for years. We have a deficit of 21 trillion dollars now that we have had obama for eight years and it was 9.6 trillion when he was elected and said that was unacceptable.
      We can well afford a fence since the illegals cost us that and more every year.
      When obama was a senator from Chicago did he introduce anything to reduce the murders in Chicago???
      Now we are stuck by him with the social security gun law, He released all the GITMO prisoners. He trade some of them for Bergdahl the soldier who went awol and left his post in Afghanistan and cost several lives of soldiers trying to find him and when he was brought home he was finally convicted and sentenced but obama pardoned him. Why haven’t we heard more outrage about this???
      A lot of the pardons he gave were for unlawful use of firearms.Obama is gone but he should be made to stay and answer for the wrong he has done.

      1. Peter Smith says:

        The national debt will be a very big issue in the not too distant future. I believe our debt, and that of many other nations are going to cause an economic “reset” that will turn our world upside down. It’s gonna be a ride NO ONE will ever forget.
        The gun order will be rescinded and we will eventually rid ourselves entirely of the excessive baggage left by the D.C. Mulato.
        Why haven’t we heard more outrage of the results of Obama policies? My God, where have you been? The progressive liberal media would NEVER cast a shadow on Obama. Only FOXNews, Breitbart, One America News, and very few others will print or speak the truth.
        I believe the wheel WILL turn, and sooner or later, Obama will answer for his wrong doing.

  • bookworm says:

    San Diego NB, Edwards AFB, Camp Pendleton, et alia, to be the new Ft Sumter??? Hell, no! CA wants out, let ’em out! Taxpayers would rather pay the rent on the real estate that put up with CA crap anymore.

    1. Bob says:

      More simple. A few years ago, CA said they would no longer do business with AZ because AZ passed or were enforcing some laws they didn’t like. CA said no one traveling on State business could go to meetings or any business trips to AZ until they did the right thing. Problem was, AZ sold CA electricity, so AZ just pulled the plug. Before the wires were cold, CA buckled under and AZ kept their own laws. How long would CA last with out help from the Feds? No federal funds for roads, bridges, or welfare. No Federal student grants or loans. NO federal GI bill benefits – no home loans, education money etc. Make them squeal.

      1. bookworm says:

        You are so delightfully thorough — faced with no federal funding, Miami-Dade caved today and is no longer a sanctuary city.

        1. MCS says:

          I live in CA……cut the taxpayer funding! It is a beautiful state, but filled to the brim with people who should not be here. When the gov’t handouts stop, a lot of these folks will go home.

      2. Traveller62 says:

        No military bases there, that provide billions of income for the state. Also, you forgot the “US POST OFFICE”!!! No mail, either.

      3. Roy Fredrichsen says:

        That is their problem, not ours.

    2. Roy Fredrichsen says:

      Tootle-oo, Califorinia, Don’t look back, Bye Bye.

  • Tina says:

    Maybe they can have Hillary for president.
    And then they will bleach to clean the mess

  • Tiger says:

    It is a beautiful state, I lived there for 6.5 years my father a Marine but we left when I was 13. Really sad that it is overrun with these people. Read that now the population more Hispanics than white. La Raza been saying they were going to win out and overrun the whites.

    Hope they enjoy their isolation, their poverty, their crime and their lives.

    1. Rock says:

      I believe the Chinese want to use it for missile testing… BOOM !

      1. Tiger says:

        LOLOL well they will have to beat La Raza to the carnage soon as this happens “Poncho Villa Rides Again”.

  • gvette says:

    I’d like to see CA on it’s own. They are broke now.

    1. Rock says:

      “BROKE” is a step UP for Kalifornia !

      1. gvette says:

        I chuckled at that, but you may be right!

    2. Bob says:

      Their credit is so bad most reputable businesses won’t take their cash.

      1. gvette says:

        I can imagine that with no problem. I don’t have it in front of me right now, but I checked a few days ago to see how far in debt they are, and it’s scary!

    3. itsfun says:

      They want foreign aid from us

      1. gvette says:

        LMAO….good one!!
