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.

Louis Marinelli, a San Diego resident who is the leader of the group promoting an effort to turn the state into an independent country , organized the Moscow event that was publicized on social media.

"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.

This should be considered a moral, even if not the Constitutionally defined, form of treason.

Explain why they would open an embassy in Moscow when they believe the russians hacked the election and somehow denied Hillary, their savior, a presidential win?

I know it’s liberal pretzel logic hypocrisy, but it is amazing they can’t see how crazy they are.

You are correct.

I don’t believe Putin, et al, would welcome them.

I’m fine with them seceding. Let them go before they figure out why seceding is a bad idea for them. :D

“form of treason”

They are not trying to overthrow the government.

This movement may actually force a devolution of powers from the federal government to the states over the long run. I hope they are serious.

If Putin is supporting this, then he won't let it fail. The Republic of California would be a Russian puppet state.

Putin needs to be informed of the traitors and troublemakers in his midst. I’m sure he’ll deal with them like a cancer a doctor zots with a laser.....maybe even send in the FSB to give them a door knock inspection.

The guys are probably conning people out of their money for donations and have no intention of following through...they’ll probably be chased out of town or forgotten by this time next year.

that wall would be much smaller if

we confined them to a 5- or 10-mile wide (east-west) strip from
San Fran to LA.

He’d be in control of almost the entire western coastline. This is so bizarre and ridiculous but then so is California!

They’d get the entire state. They aren’t going to give up ‘Jefferson’ if they can actually pull off this crazy idea.

Oh, yeah, I’m sure Putin would want California and its tens of millions of true-believing Stalinist lunatics.

then the US could ‘wipe the slate clean’ as they say, and the liberal retards in California would be gone forever.
