In theory California could be completely sufficient, but its run by liberals.
What an interesting question, great one for cocktail parties.

Sufficiency is dictated by whichever army is winning. I think demographics is far more of a concern. I think we'd be looking at the most complex clash of ethnicity and ideology of any civilian uprising in the history of mankind. No doubt a foreign country would attempt to exploit the breakdown, such as China or even Mexican citizenry since they have millions of like-minded comrades already here, many of whom hold powerful positions and jobs in our police force, border patrol, and local governments; They'd turn on us on a dime.
I agree about this question; One of the most thought-provoking questions on FR here of late.
California would lay on it’s back with it’s high heels through it’s hoop earrings if we threw rainbow colored condoms at it,,or free BC, or vibrators and videotaped the whole thing. The wouldn’t be able to resist.
California depends to a great deal on the Colorado River watershed ~ and without it, California is not particularly self-suficient with its current population.
They would have, instead, a massive refugee problem.
