Ever since Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton for the presidency, the uber-left has been in a state of denial, a state of shock. It continues today. Actually, it’s really continuing in California, where the heavy Hispanic population of illegal immigrants who really want to vote and become citizens without any penalty are growing by the day. Now it’s reached the point where there is a group called “Yes, California” that is trying to get Cali to secede from the union.
I say, “GO FOR IT!”
California has become a pit. It’s been the land of fruits and nuts for years, but it’s become this socialist mecca of weird people. And if they don’t want to become a member of the United States anymore I say good riddance! Actually, it would be a boon to the rest of the US if they did in fact leave. You would be taking 55 electoral votes right out from under the Democrats’ to start off with. That would also take about 5 million votes away from Democrats’ campaigns as well, and you’d lose two Democrat seats in the US Senate and 53 in the House of Representatives. Yeah…that so far is a good thing.
There are some negatives. You’d have to have a passport to get to the pier at Long Beach, or San Diego. But you’ve gotta have a passport to pretty much take a cruise anyway these days. You would have to import avocados from a foreign country, but about 35% of our avocados come from Mexico already, so what’s the big deal? And of course, you’d lose out on such things as Napa Valley wine, Pebble Beach and Torrey Pines golf courses, Hollywood, Disneyland, Universal Studios, and San Francisco.
The mecca for television programming would have to change. Maybe they could move to Reno, Nevada or Yuma, Arizona? Both cities could use the boost in economy! But other than that, I really see no downsides. If California wants to be its own country, I say let them go and let’s get on with life. That would allow Puerto Rico to become the 50th state. Yes, I’m aware they would most likely vote Democrat, but there are a hell of a lot less Puerto Ricans than there are Californians!
Look at it this way…there are all of those “sanctuary cities” in California that are going to be losing all of their federal funding when Trump takes office anyway, and California is already up to its eyeballs in debt because of liberal policies. So, what’s the big deal if we let them go? We’d also get rid of Nancy Pelosi and Diane Feinstein! See…there ARE positives to this movement going forward.
So, I say we wave goodbye to California. We let them do their own thing, and say good riddance. The money we’ll save in bailing them out for all of their stupid policies that nobody thought through would be enormous. Maybe we could even set our current president up out there as their new president? Hell, he could serve for the rest of his life! And Hillary could be his Vice President!!!
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
