OK what are YOUR ideas? California as a piece of Real Estate is too rich, too populous and too rick is Natural Resources to let it(any if we let it we will be not too far behind it) go down the toilet.
I don't care. California is a lost cause.
If California decides to secede, then any resident that wants to move to the US is welcome.
But, their citizenship is suspended for 7 years. They don't get to vote in a local, status, or federal election during that time. They turned California into a failed welfare state, and they won't get the opportunity to do it again elsewhere.
At the end of that 7 years, they have to show a net contribution to society (taxes paid, minus benefits excepting ones that they paid for in advance like Social Security), or they go back to what is left of California.
California is great but it is not great enough to compromise the 10th amendment over. Ever.
As a life-long (72 years) resident of California I would say that your ideas are about as nutty as our current batch of legislators and our Governor. I understand that you don’t like California, and I think reasonable people understand that we have allowed the RATS to infest our government. But the idea that somehow the rest of the country is totally devoid most of what’s going on here is truly laughable. Sure there are a few states that have fewer problems than does California, but then, not many people live there. Lots of folks are touting Texas as the model, but even Texas is not without many of the same problems that face California. So continue with your loony ideas, about taking some ill-conceived Federal “action” against California simply because you don’t agree with what the people here want. When and if you make good on your threat, remember that that knife cuts both ways. California, despite it’s current problems, is a net contributor to this nation in many ways ( like we feed the rest of you), so we can be equally stupid, and withhold those things you have come to “expect” from us. In reality, California is a “problem” because we represent 10% of the country’s population. I could name a dozen other states that represent a much more serious threat to the country ( like, IL, and the whole of the Northeast).
