Under Obama, it was “racist” to suggest that states ought to be able to secede from the Union. But now that Donald Trump has been elected, all the cool kids want to secede now. (I guess the Democrat Hipster Left is conceding that the South really did have a right to secede after the election of Abraham Lincoln.) The language for the ballot proposition on the secession of California has been submitted to the California Attorney-General’s office.
An independent California will be able to implement, unimpeded, all the progressive policies they have so far implemented with only slight impediments. I imagine the new country will have completely open borders with instant citizenship for anyone who wants it. I imagine it will have Scandinavian-style welfare systems (and considering California has over a third of America’s welfare recipients, they’re going to have a lot of fun paying for them.) Free college, free health care, state-subsidized housing, and no guns. All energy will be generated from 100% renewable resources. Maybe they’ll even do away with the legislature and implement a pure democracy where everyone gets to vote on everything.
Oh, yeah… and high-speed rail. Can’t forget that.
Show us the way, California. Show us how these policies will work in exactly the opposite way for you as they worked in Venezuela.
I really want to see it.
