California gained an embassy in Russia last weekend, at least in the eyes of those who have promised to seek a statewide vote on secession, nicknamed "Calexit," in 2018.

"We want to start laying the groundwork for a dialogue about an independent California joining the United Nations now," he said in an email Monday.

It figures. Is there any way to get these Leftist losers to defect to Russia? One can only enjoy the utopia of the new socialist man if one lives it for real instead of just thinking about it and making everyone else in the U.S. unhappy as you pursue your dreams here. Most Americans with functioning brain cells want no part of your socialist utopia.
Moscow should kick out these deranged Communist warmongers that hate Russia !
