The leaders of California’s secession movement (I wish them great success) by the way would deny that they are motivated by nationalism (because that’s a dirty word to the left), but when you look up the word “nationalism” and put the sentiments expressed by the California secessionists in that context; it’s pretty clear that they […]

The “Calexit” referendum campaign has died in infancy after its leader decided to become a Russian citizen. The terminology is confusing. This proposed 2018 state ballot referendum, which Nigel Farage supported, would divide California along cultural lines into two smaller states. There is a separate campaign for California to leave the U.S. altogether called Yes […]

Calexit: If You Succeed to Secede

 

Yesterday, a group submitted its proposal to California’s Secretary of State for a ballot proposal for California to secede from the United States and become its own independent nation. “Calexit,” they’re calling it. On the website for the proposed referendum, it states:

“In our view, the United States of America represents so many things that conflict with Californian values, and our continued statehood means California will continue subsidizing the other states to our own detriment, and to the detriment of our children.”

So it’s time to secede! Become their own nation! The time is right for the People’s Republic of California! They must follow in the footsteps of Eritrea, East Timor, and South Sudan and really show Trumpistan what’s what! Here’s a look at some of the arguments the proponents put forth in favor of California’s independence:

Currently California liberals are enjoying fantasizing about their state seceding from the Union — a process labeled “CalExit.” Legally it’s a silly idea. Though technically possible, it will never happen, for Constitutional and political reasons. But putting reality aside, is it a good idea? Oddly enough, I think it is. Some of my conservative friends […]

The CalGone (Take It Away!) movement has opened an embassy in Moscow to help promote their idea of California’s secession. California gained an embassy in Russia last weekend, at least in the eyes of those who have promised to seek a statewide vote on secession, nicknamed “Calexit,” in 2018. Preview Open

Demolition Man Tried to Warn Us

 

demolitionmanIn the wake of “Calexit”, a 90s action classic has new relevance.

Demolition Man is admittedly an incredibly silly film, it stars Sylvester Stallone as a loose cannon cop versus a sociopathic blonde haired Wesley Snipes. What sets it a part from its contemporaries though is its wit and the fresh spin it puts on the dystopian narrative.

The two men literally frozen, Stallone and Snipes, for their present-day violent actions are unthawed in a future California that would be all too horrifying if it wasn’t so frighteningly similar to the 2016 version of the Golden State. At times the film is eerily accurate like predicting Schwarzenegger’s political career and the looming threat of political correctness which has only gotten worse every year since the films release. The movie is 100% spot on about how government on steroids can become a cult like religion. The crux of the plot is that Snipes character, Simon Phoenix, has for some unknown reason been reintroduced to a world that couldn’t be more ill-equipped to handle his form of anachronistic violent behavior. Like his namesake the mythical bird, the villain has risen from the heat produced by the extreme cold of his icy tomb infinitesimally more dangerous than he was before.

To you people in California (and Oregon, as well) who have decided that the election of Donald J. Trump as the President of the United States so offends you that wish to secede and form your own countries, I bid you greetings and wish you well in your endeavors. However, I have some questions about […]

Today’s ‘Daily Shot’, in discussing #CALEXIT and the popular vote in California, said the following: “Meanwhile, talk of a Texit seems to have quieted down for now…” The linked article discusses an initiative at the Texas state Republican convention to have a vote on a Texas independence resolution that was ultimately prevented from getting to a […]
