California? Just hand the deed to China and be done with it. They will have no problem managing that mess.
Pretty much how Britain gained Hong Kong at one time. Too bad no one is taught history and knows this lesson. We will lose states to pay our reparations. It'll happen one way or another. Either in payment for debt or when we no longer have the power to dictate how the world runs and that power belongs to China. The path we are on...no American is mentally prepared for it. Except maybe those expats who are very at home on the Pacific Rim.
