Skip to comments.Calexit III? New ballot measure plots another route to California independence (YES!)
Posted on 08/17/2017 5:49:51 PM PDT by Libloather
On Thursday, people unhappy with Californias place in the United States filed yet another proposed ballot measure that could lead to the Golden State striking out on its own.
This time, the goal is convening a U.S. constitutional convention to overhaul what proponents call a moldy national blueprint out of step with life in California.
The measure says a reworked Constitution should include a provision creating a clear and reasonable path for states to achieve complete independence from the United States should any state so choose. No state has become independent under the existing U.S. Constitution.
The world has changed dramatically since 1787, reads the preamble of the California Calls for a Constitutional Convention, or Cal Con Con.

Who will protect them from Kim J. Un?
Funny how the democrats started the first civil war and it looks like they will officially start CW-II....
Oh, the fuggin’ arrogance. The other 49 states are ‘moldy and out of step with life in Kalifornia’. That diseased shithole needs a few massive earthquakes, an active volcano, and a zombie viral outbreak. Simultaneously.
I’m all for it. Rest of the country would be conservative.
Let’s make it happen faster.
As HL Mencken once observed the desire to “save” the world is usually actually the desire to rule it. The people pushing it think they will rule it. Incorrect. In these situations it’s always the meanest junkyard dog who takes over. The useful idiots get executed as traitors since they can never be trusted.
Let them declare independence.
Then the US can invade. Don’t worry, these pansies would make the Italian army in WW2 look good. I don’t think a transgendered motorized division riding pink scooters has much of a chance defending the California republic. The only real resistance would come from the Hispanic gangs.
Then occupy and set up military government just like they did after CW1. Kick out all illegals, and deport commie Dems/ and or put them on trial for treason.
I figure then we could drain CA by 10-20 million. Let people in the other states repopulate CA via homesteading/ carpetbagging.
At least this approach is legal.
Seems that 11 states actually seceded once upon a time but they were forced against their will to stay in the union. Those who fail to learn from history ....
AN ORDINANCE to dissolve the union between the State of South Carolina and other States united with her under the compact entitled "The Constitution of the United States of America."
We, the people of the State of South Carolina, in convention assembled, do declare and ordain, and it is hereby declared and ordained, That the ordinance adopted by us in convention on the twenty-third day of May, in the year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and eighty-eight, whereby the Constitution of the United States of America was ratified, and also all acts and parts of acts of the General Assembly of this State ratifying amendments of the said Constitution, are hereby repealed; and that the union now subsisting between South Carolina and other States, under the name of the "United States of America," is hereby dissolved.
Done at Charleston the twentieth day of December, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty.
Hey California, don’t let the door hit you on the way out!
Secession should be viewed as peaceful act. No war necessary. Nobody is going to die to keep that loony bin IN the union.
You think the Vietnam anti war protests were bad then wait til you see what happens if the US Army invades CA. The USA will go berserk. Nobody will stop CA if they vote for it. It will be peaceful like when the USSR split up.
Secession is not unconstitutional. You think Charlottsville was bad wait and see what happens if the US Army invades CA. Charlottesville times 1,000,000.
We could just give Mexico a “Gadsen Refund” and let them have the south side of Commiefornia from oakland to san deigo.
The norther half can keep the name california and the southern half can be added to “Baja California” but I prefer the name “ Bozo California “ instead.
the aim of the globalists...make America a chaotic hateful nation...
the world has always been jealous of us and now, they are getting their revenge..
How about “we” just stay out of it and let Californians decide if it wants to go it alone. The whole state, not just parts of it.
The problem is that under Article V it's the state legislature that has to apply to Congress for such a convention, not the people via initiative. The California legislature could apply for a convention for this subject today if it wished.
Rest of the country would be conservative.
