SACRAMENTO, Calif.

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.

I live in Florida, but I’ll sign their petition and do it like a Democrat, signing it 12 times.

Let's get this ball rolling. But if a State can secede, a county should be able to secede from a state. Hey, it's only fair.

BTW, anyone recall what Californicate said when Texas made rumblings about seceding back when 0 was Prez?

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.

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.

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.

Yawn.

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.)

"Again: If the United States be not a government proper, but an association of States in the nature of contract merely, can it, as acontract, be peaceably unmade by less than all the parties who made it? One party to a contract may violate it--break it, so to speak--but does it not require all to lawfully rescind it? "

-Abraham Lincoln

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.
