California secession campaign can start gathering signatures
Washington Times ^ | 25 July 2017

Posted on 07/26/2017 9:57:28 AM PDT by Lorianne

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.

This is the second attempt to put a so-called Calexit measure on the 2018 ballot. An earlier attempt was withdrawn in April.

A state in continual debt wants to secede from the US? Will they still want US money? Idiots.

Before you paint all of CA as Liberal wackjobs, look at the “red” counties and how they vote.

This won’t go anywhere unless the moronic Jerry Brown gets all his illegals to vote illegally like in 2016. Hence, he doesn’t want President Trump looking at his voter rolls!!!

Liberalism is a mental disease for corrupt bottom-feeding feces.

“....instruct the governor and California congressional delegation to negotiate more autonomy for the state.”

Yes indeed. Start the negotiation with President Trump. Great idea. Just how much do you want it CA?

The same people also support an open border and raising taxes on its citizens to pay for the health, welfare and added municipalities of the citizens of Mexico. Basically they are saying they want to join with Mexico and build a virtual wall to the United States. ! The rest of the United States seems to be OK with the Mexican takeover of US territory.... Think about this, since WW2 the US built the most advanced military the world has ever known, yet since then our most fertile farmland, and economic territory we have allowed one of the poorest nations on the earth to take from us without a shot fired !

They may find enough moonbats to get this on the ballot but it will never pass. Mark my words and bookmark for later.

The purpose of me posting the map was to back up ExTexasRedhead to show that California is red heavy in some parts...given someone with brains instead of “Moon Beam” “Di-Fi” “Piglosi” “Mad Maxine” they could have a mostly Red State again...

HEY! California, the state constitution says that California, is an inseparable part of the U.S.

So all you secessionists, can just be quiet.

I’m just wondering what the liberal californians that want this secession, what their end game is? Do they think they will prosper without the US and with sanctuary cities and illegals? Where is all of this going? They’d secede and THEN ask the US for money to bail them out? Is that part of their ridiculous plan?

There are 5.4 million Republicans in California, all unrepresented. Take one for the team I say. 5 million+ secede votes!

I guess they’ll start printing “Calos” for money.

Wallpaper your house with them in Oregon.
