A group that wants California to secede from the United States can start collecting signatures for its ballot initiative.
The state attorney general issued an official ballot measure title and summary Tuesday. The campaign can now start gathering the more than 585,000 signatures it will need to qualify for the 2018 ballot.
The initiative would form a commission to recommend avenues for California to pursue its independence and delete part of the state constitution that says it is an inseparable part of the U.S. The measure would also instruct the governor and California congressional delegation to negotiate more autonomy for the state.

Encouraging news indeed! Please let it happen.
I live in Florida, but I’ll sign their petition and do it like a Democrat, signing it 12 times.
BTW, anyone recall what Californicate said when Texas made rumblings about seceding back when 0 was Prez?
Don’t let the door hit y’all in the @$$ on the way out
Triple concertina wire fence and machine gun nests at 50 yard intervals...
Can out-of-staters sign? I’ll gladly do so early and often.
We get rid of California and Hollywood at the same time. Double win.
You can use a nearby vacant lot as one of your addresses - just like a Democrat.

Great! Good news! Can’t happen soon enough.
Get the pinko pukes off the USA teat!
Wonder what they’ll do when the Chicoms come knocking?
Now this is one CA scheme we can all support.
Excellent! I am all for the two state solution. Liberals on one side and regular Americans on the other. Time for a D-I-V-O-R-C-E.
Hey, Kalifphonyians ... Don’t let the door hit you in the a$$ ... BTW, when the next seismic event devastates one of your cities, don’t bother asking assistance from true Americans - because we’ll be sitting back and thoroughly enjoying your “come to Jesus” moment.
Where do I sign, speaking as a Hoosier.
Y E S!!
I live in CA and I would sign this in a heartbeat. Then I would take my treasure and move to Idaho.
Trump should tweet his support of this initiative...lol
If no CA, no dem base to ever elect another dem president.
CA is a net drain on US resources.
It would serve well as an object lesson showing exactly what happens when you embrace socialism.
They need to consider a compromise. Allow only the mentally-ill, deep-blue, RAT portion of the state to secede.
I mean, I'd like California to take a hike, but Californians overwhelmingly oppose seceding, and even if they did, the federal government is not letting them, as they established pretty firmly in 1861 that they will sic the U.S. Army on you for trying to go (which would be pretty funny, in the case of California.)
Surely there are enough Freepers and Conservatives in California to put this over the top lol
Wouldn’t it be FUN to witness the abject disappointment and rage the left will demonstrate when they don’t get their way?
Let’s help them become hurt and disappointed.
