They seem to be crying loudly for a break from the United States. How bad would that be? California has been run into the ground by a democrat government. They are $443 billion in debt and are unsustainable. In addition, the crime rate in California is one of the highest in the country. With the election, California has legalized marijuana so the crime rate could soar even higher. On top of this California also has the largest number of Illegals with approximate numbers estimated at 2.4 million.
Carry on with #Calexit California – Good Riddance!
The following is what Californian’s are saying:
Late in the evening on Tuesday, #Calexit lit up Twitter along with the hashtag #Caleavefornia. Tweet after tweet devastated Californians vented out their anger, starting a secession campaign initiated by a group called Yes California Independence Campaign.
The group is also organizing an event in Sacramento on Wednesday to garner more support for their move.
“As the sixth-largest economy in the world, California is more economically powerful than France and has a population larger than Poland. Point by point, California compares and competes with countries, not just the 49 other states,” the group said in a statement on their site.
The citizens of the bluest state on Clinton’s map also took to Twitter Wednesday, calling for independence from the U.S by the year 2020.
Silicon Valley venture capitalist Shervin Pishevar renewed the CalExit call, promising to fund “a legitimate campaign for California to become its own nation.”
The Calexit is named after Brexit, the July referendum in the U.K. in which the country voted to leave the EU. Londoners had also called for a leave from the U.K. after the disappointing result.
Even though calls for California to secede from the U.S. have been around for quite a while, Brexit reignited the talks.
Meanwhile, protests erupted against Donald Trump in California’s Bay Area late on Tuesday after the Republican candidate won the presidential election.
Demonstrators set fire to a likeness of Trump, smashed storefront windows and set garbage and tires on fire in downtown Oakland, across the bay from San Francisco. A few miles away, University of California, Berkeley students protested on campus.
A demonstration also unfolded at the University of California, Davis where students blocked streets as they marched and chanted anti-Trump slogans and “You are not America, we are America.”
