But the time to try it is now, while we still can. The window of opportunity will close soon.
You don't like my idea?
It'll require a governor and legislature willing to stand up to federal blackmail and extortion, and both voter blocs and an armed populace willing to resist attempts to flood the area with illegal voters, probably foreign.
If that's a REQUIREMENT, then it will never happen. Don't underestimate yourself, or the power of an effective bloc. So, isn't one out of three enough? If you want conservatives who can stand up to anything, come to California! We're tough. Just ask Carl Rove and Gray Davis. For every FReeper who moves here there'll be three Slave Party weenies who'll hightail it.
Think of the change in cash flow! :-P
