Wrong. The country will not survive the fascist regime that is undermining our values and pushes a racist, xenophobic, hateful agenda.

Keep pushing us and see what happens.
"Keep pushing us........................."

Do you mean by enforcing federal laws, reducing taxes, securing the border, reducing regulations, and seeking to increase the prosperity of the middle class?

I would LOVE to see CA leave the US:

1. Northern CA and US federal lands provide CA with nearly all of its water.

2. Northern CA voted for Trump.

3. Northern CA has wanted to split from CA (see state of Jefferson).

4. CA would be a desert without water from Northern CA and federal lands

5. CA has no nukes.

6. There are actual sane people in CA- 5 million voted for Trump there.

7. CA has no army.

8. San Diego is a massive navy/marine military installation.


In short............................. "liberal CA" would turn into a poor desert nation without US water and ports.
We could lose all the left wing loonies and make them proud citizens of Mexico.

Yeah and they can pack up their crap and LEAVE.

You see, while the federal govt cant legally mess with state boundaries, counties are chartered by states and Sacramento need only revoke their charters and merge them with blue areas to the south.

Haha I know this fantasy makes u happy, but I hate to break it to you the only realistic scenario is that if California leaves, she's leaving in tact.

Oh and ps, the ports are OWNED by the cities they are locatedvin, not sure why you think the feds own them but no.

Sorry
