CA is as broke as Venezuela if you count their debt load from the state’s retirement system.
No...we want the Leftists and the Mexicans to declare secession.
Then we can have a war against them with the rest of the country and the Federal government behind us.
Best part is we get to Reconstruct them at the end, just like the original Republicans - the Radical Republicans - did to the South!
Great fun. All sorts of retribution and revenge.
Hey, they’re the ones always yelling that a State has no right to secede.
Let’s have the fight. We know who wins.
Take Los Angeles with you.
Will they promise to take the NYTimes and WaPost with them?
Great. Then they will have no problem paying for their own infrastructure improvements.
Like the Matt Bracken book.
It’s funny how for years a similar movement in Texas was lampooned, and routinely harassed by the law, but I can only imagine that WaPo totally avoided any snarky language or swipes at these guys.
I’d like to keep the Dodgers.
Many counties in California won’t leave. Millions won’t give up their welfare, SS, disability, federal government jobs, etc.
This is the most wanted in LA....Enough said. Anyone who looks at this and still agrees with an open border needs their head examined. And I keep posting this on Freep and nobody ever comments on it..What am I missing?
Fine with me. As long as Moonbeam will agree to pay for “the wall” along the California border on the western bank of the Colorado River. This will be a great way to refill Lake Meade.

Arrest Jerry Moondog Brown. Lets drain the swamp in Sacramento. NOW !!
No,not New York....NYC is too important.
It’s a county in Oregon.
Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.
The Congress shall have Power to declare the Punishment of Treason, but no Attainder of Treason shall work Corruption of Blood, or Forfeiture except during the Life of the Person attainted.
Congress has set death as the maximum punishment for Treason. Anyone who assist in California attempting to secede should be convicted of Treason and then put before a firing squad.
