Donald Trump’s Victory Renews “Nuts” Push for Calexit
A new push for California to exit, aka Calexit, the United States has arisen in the wake of Donald Trump winning the Presidency. “Yes California,” a campaign that aims to put a referendum on the Y 2019 ballot for the Golden State to leave the US, is leading the charge.
It was reported Wednesday at 60% of the state’s voters supported loser Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, and the state’s electoral college votes went to her.
“As the 6th largest economy in the world, California is more economically powerful than France and has a population larger than Poland. Point-by-point, California compares with countries, not just the 49 other states,” read the campaign’s site.
Note: before Barack Hussein Obama’s 8 years California was the world’s 5th largest economy, California has suffered under Obama. It would likely have suffered more under a Hillary Clinton administration.
The “Yes” campaign has been considered a fringe movement, supporters of leaving the union took to Twitter after Donald Trump won, using the hashtag #Calexit, a reference to the Brexit movement in Britain to leave the European Union.
While not calling for the state to leave the union, 2 Democratic legislators in the state, Senate President Kevin de Leon and assembly speaker Anthony Rendon, issued a statement about the election results, as follows:
“We woke up feeling like strangers in a foreign land, because yesterday Americans expressed their views on a pluralistic and democratic society that are clearly inconsistent with the values of the people of California.”
They can always come aboard to help make America Great Again, that includes California, or go to the basement and “smoke a bowl” of legal marijuana to ease theirs fake pains.
