Why should we care what the leftist snowflakes in California do? As California sinks into the bottomless pit of third-world socialism, the Bear Republic will further distance itself from the rest of the country, especially the conservative South and West. The campaign toward independence will inevitably accelerate. As Reuters reports today, changing demographics is changing California's identity, making it distinctly different from the rest of America:Supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) turned out en masse at ordinarily sleepy party caucuses earlier this month, electing a slate of delegates who could be poised to take over the largest Democratic Party organization outside of Washington, D.C. As final vote totals trickled in, Sanders backers claimed to have elected more than 650 delegates out of 1,120 available seats chosen at this month’s caucuses. Those delegates will choose the next state Democratic Party chairman, along with other party officials. Sanders supporters say they hope to change the very nature of the Democratic Party. ... California’s legislature has been at the vanguard of some of the most liberal policy programs in the nation, on everything from climate change to immigrant rights. Sanders supporters hope to leverage their newfound power to convince Democratic majorities in the state Assembly and state Senate to embrace even more aggressive progressive positions.
In Lodi, California, Democratic party activist Bruce Rubly, who told Reuters/Ipsos pollsters that he "strongly supported" California secession, said he thinks it could happen if Trump and the Republicans who dominate the U.S. Congress impose conservative policies on such issues as the environment, immigration and marijuana legalization. "There's a whole series of things that are going to get Californians riled up," said Rubly, 68. "And if he pushes those buttons in the wrong way, there's going to be hell to pay."In 2014, only 20% of Californians supported secession; today 32% would vote to withdraw from the DC Empire.
