Why don't other Americans like California?

There are a few things that people on the California coast don't talk about. About Donald Trump, for example. Whoever hides uncomfortable truths knows no anger. They prefer to pat each other and also like to give each other a pat on the back that they made a few sensible decisions in the November election: You elected Kamala Harris as the first Indian-American Senator in US history and for the legalization of marijuana as well as a higher taxation of tobacco voted. Public school spending will be increased and financed through a wealthy tax.

Californian justice always includes a lot of self-righteousness, which is why Governor Jerry Brown joked before the election (in which 61.5 percent voted for Hillary Clinton): "We will have to build a wall around California to get ahead of the rest of this To protect the country. "

Well, in the sixth month of the president, about whom nobody is talking about, some Californians ask: Would that be possible, an independent nation, independent of the rest of this country? According to a vote by the University of Berkeley, 32 percent of Californians are in favor of a spin-off from the United States of America, the establishment of an independent republic and integration into the United Nations. There is even an initiative that aims to bring about an independence referendum in 2019. If the British did not just throw their Brexit in the sand, this movement would be called Calexit. The wonderful term "Caleavefornia" (a play on words from California and "leave" - ‚Äč‚Äčleave) has not caught on. The organization is now called "Yes California", which sounds more like a travel brochure than a political movement.

After each election, there will be considerations of secession from the United States

The arguments of the proponents initially sound logical: California is the sixth largest economy in the world with a gross domestic product of 2.46 trillion dollars, ahead of France, Russia and India. Here, companies like Apple and Facebook and Tesla are working on the future of humanity. Despite its crumbling infrastructure, California has for 30 years passed more taxes to Washington than it collects from federal grants. Climate and immigration policies are fundamentally different from the views of the president, about whom no one speaks.

In April, the "Yes California" initiators had Brexit spokesmen Arron Banks and Nigel Farage explain how such a split could take place. Then the pro-Californian Louis Marinelli opened a kind of embassy in Moscow sponsored by an organization close to Russian President Vladimir Putin. After that, the Calexit organizers fell out among themselves. The Californians realized that this Calexit would be financed by Putin and could run as chaotically as Brexit. And by not participating in the collection of signatures, expressed that they would rather let it stay. By July 25, the initiators need the signatures of 585,407 voters registered in California. They shouldn't get that.

Such ideas of secession are not new in the US, but a reflex of almost every presidential election. After the re-election of Barack Obama in 2012, for example, there had been efforts by residents in 18 states such as Texas, Alabama and Louisiana to break away from the United States. Anyone who deals with American law and bureaucracy knows, however, that outsourcing a state is practically impossible.
