Give them a few weeks. They just legalized recreational marijuana. They'll mellow and everything will be fine.

All of that has me beginning to wonder. Maybe Trump's victory out of state is waking us up to the reality that we no longer belong.

Who knows? We shall see...

#CalExit: Topic of California seceding from the nation takes over social media | The Sacramento Bee
If California gains momentum and actually gets to vote/act on it, trust me it will start something. Oregon and Washington I am sure would follow suit or join California and then the Northeast and Great Lakes states (the blue ones) would want to too.

I really hope people wait out to see what happens with Trump. As much as I despise him, no need to get too drastic until we see if he puts on any damage that would validate states wanting to secede. But if things go bad, I could see there being major problems of states wanting to secede.

To me the US is like the state of Illinois. The Chicago metro makes up 75% of the state's population. Chicago's metro controls the politics of the state. Everyone else who lives in the rest of the state has to deal with an economy and politics that is vastly different from Chicago's. I am seeing that US is starting to become like that. Reliable blue states, have different economies and social wants from the red ones. I think a tear has been made, and Trump's win might be a catalayst to tear it up even more.

I have to say if you had a vote held today for the blue states to join Canada and where Canada would aloow them to join them, we would see those blue states as part of Canada by 2017. This country is too big, and maybe not in our lifetimes, but at some point it's going to change and either get bigger or smaller. I see this win as one of those stepping stones that might lead us into that direction.

BTW, the United States will keep the name, else it would cause confusion. Maybe rename yourselves to 'Republica del Cali'.
"The Cereal Republic". Nuts, flakes, and fruits.

After you secede you can't grow that produce with salt water, don't forget that you get your fresh water from Colorado.

Millions of illegals voted in CA (with the Governor's blessing)

They will be gone soon.

Trump takes the stance that the Constitution does not maintain
birthright citizenship. Perhaps the anchor babies lose their anchor.

California has always been a drain on the USA. Let the welfare state secede and maybe (doubtful) the Hollywood elite will take care of them.

Are you kidding? Minnesota was closer then a gnats #$% to going RED. We control everything going in and out of the TC's metro....We would never leave the union...
