Remember when it was racist and evil and anti-democracy when Texas floated this type of thing? Good times, good times (via Twitchy):
Anti-Trump Californians file paperwork, launch campaign to secede from union https://t.co/7vQJaUSbst

Anti-Trump secessionists filed formal paperwork Monday launching their petition drive aimed at separating California from the union by first putting the issue before voters on the 2018 ballot.
A petition submitted by the Yes California Independence Campaign calls for repealing language in the state constitution that describes California as an “inseparable part” of the nation and holding a vote on independence on March 13, 2019.
It was also mean and racist when parts of California wanted to secede from California to become their own state (there have been many plans on splitting California into two, four, and even six states). But, hey, this is a great idea!
I would really love to see their plan for the $200+ billion in debt and $1+ TRILLION in unpaid entitlements/pensions. More middle class tax? https://t.co/Q3fxAGYKDX

Even more fun, how would they export all their products and import so much else? They’d need all sorts of trade deals. Oh, hey, some of Cali’s water comes from out of state. Cut off. They’d be on their own in the event of a natural disaster, and, let’s face it, the whole state is a disaster waiting to happen. Literally.
What about all the food that would need to be imported? Hey, they grow a lot of lettuce and nuts (sic), but, quite a bit more needs to be imported. So does all that fossil fuels. And other things.
Anyhow, grab the popcorn.
