Have you noticed that the stories and editorials about secession have been in largely leftwing spin? That's just what's out there (a lot of which I can't post on FR).

If these people take so much state money, then you would be doing yourself a favor, California.

They divide the state in the wrong direction. Cut in half, north south, giving the Central Valley San Diego for a port and the coast can have Los Angeles and San Francisco.

Then we will see just who has the money.

“But actual secession would require approval from the state Legislature and Congress”

Not necessarily. West Virginia set precedence when it seceded from Virginia without Virginia’s approval.

Poor Leftists. They just don’t get it that part of CA could secede and become a tax haven and the jobs would flood in.

Or maybe they do get it and they’re scared.

Essentially, irresponsible conservative politicians and a handful of activists who find it easier to paint the government as the source of all evil

No questioning in this piece of liberal policies or their unintended consequences for other counties. I guess the utopian liberals could never be responsible for any bad outcomes. /sarc

“But actual secession would require approval from the state Legislature and Congress, and that’s not a realistic possibility—fortunately for the secessionists.”

Seems a bit bass-ackwards, IMO. The essence of secession is that societal neighbors cannot agree on components of governance, and the best course of action is for them to exist apart from one another. A process that requires the party desirous of secession to gain the agreement of the party that does not want the split seems...just wrong.

For my part, 150 States carved out of the current 50 would be a great start. That would go a long way toward returning some semblance of ‘balance’ to this Grand Experiment.

They get far more money in state services than they pay in taxes.

No one can imagine anyone walking away from all those great state services.

Who would want to govern themselves when all those great state services are just sitting there, ripe for the taking.

Shasta, Lassen and Redding counties...

There is no Redding County. Redding is a city and the county seat of Shasta County.

No wonder they want to secede. Sacramento journalists don't even know they exist.

Please do. Let em go. My sister-in-law’s step-brother lives out there now. I would love to see that little punk “gay boy” float away to the far ends of the earth. He has fooled her for years. I was not fooled when I saw him a few years back. I have shook hands with 6 year old girls that had a better grip than this sissy does.

They could join Nevada. Parts of Oregon could too.

” It’s time for the secessionists to drop the theatrics and work with the rest of California for the future of their counties.”

In other words, bow to the will of the perverts, socialists, abortionists, and homos.

Redding is the county seat of Shasta county.

Redding is full of welfare cheats, but it used to be a farm town.

The Left in California don’t understand the idea of secession. It means getting AWAY from the problem, not making it bigger.

Back before the enviro-NAZI destroyed the lumber business, they were booming wealthy counties, but now jobs are illegal up there. all their problems are government-caused.

What the writer doesn’t tell you is, if these counties could get out from under the repressive liberal policies, folks living there could be very prosperous and provide for themselves.

Secession is not an option in California

Nor is it an option in any other Soviet Socialist Democrat tyranny.
