California secession group to hold meet-up at State Capitol

No matter which candidate wins the presidency, we're going to see more headlines like this:

An organization hoping to facilitate the secession of California from the Union is holding a meet and greet on the Capitol steps in Sacramento next Wednesday, November 9, 2016, or, the day after the presidential election.

The Yes California Independence Campaign, which is based in San Diego, is aiming to qualify a citizen's initiative in 2018 to get a referendum for secession on the ballot in 2019. They'll be in Sacramento to garner support for their initiative.

"In our view," a statement on its website reads, "the United States of America represents so many things that conflict with Californian values, and our continued statehood means California will continue subsidizing the other states to our own detriment, and to the detriment of our children."
The left-leaning states don't like having to accommodate the conservative states, and vice-versa. Meanwhile, American identity has been so diluted by endless waves of immigration that it's impossible to define what it means to be "American." All that's left is the machinery of government. Obedience to DC's regulatory bureaucracy is all there is to American loyalty. Who wants to die defending that?

Rarely commented on is the mass migration of Blue state transplants into the South. These don't come to assimilate. Rather, they see themselves as crusaders, missionaries to teach the low brow babarians the proper way to do everything. This is what is turning southern states from Red to Purple. The South is being flooded into non existence.

Don't let the door hit em on the way out. They're basically part of Mexico again anyway.

I know. These folks think they're here to lift us up to their level. How thoughtful of them.

I'd bet the rising sentiment against illegal alien invaders in the "Red" states is fueling this secession movement. As you say, let 'em go, and the sooner the better.

You surely have seen this by now. Hilarious. The harder the pitch the poorer the product.

As a native Californian and native San Diegan, California was a Red state until the flood of Yankees and illegal invaders. you can see the demographics changing as I'll leaving here ASAP. the flood of tech workers from India, and flood of Filipinos, I sometimes wonder what the hell country I'm in. no one will assimilate to our culture, hearing 5 different languages makes me sick.

Anonymous @4:22 How long ago was California a Red state? I've always known it as being very liberal. I am a dumb Northerner!

Roho, you are wrong.

The Northeast elitists are lower down the hierarchy from nonwhites.

For whites to refuse nonwhites their own state would be an act of racism.

California could secede, because it is majority nonwhite.

Larry, we voted Reagan as governor twice, we had other Republican governors after him. You probably only heard of San Fransicko and the loons in Berkeley.
