You Like #Calexit? So Do We

Now that the tables have turned, the people who want secession have also:

Since Donald Trump’s electoral victory was first announced, #Calexit has been trending on Twitter, with distraught Californians looking to form their own state.

Liberal Californians who are serious about this should take comfort: you’ve got many conservative friends east of you who would be more than glad to help you make this happen.

The last time some of us tried to do this, it ended badly.  There’s no reason this has to happen again.  It’s time for a really meaningful bipartisan effort, and if #Calexit is it, let’s get going.

Sometimes making “a more perfect Union” involves knowing who to keep in and who to let out.

  1. West Coast? More like Best Coast!

    To paraphrase Voltaire, if California didn’t exist it would have to be invented. Every crazy dreamer, beautiful woman with bad luck in men, and gambler who won’t quit west of the Appalachians ends up in California at some point. They’re as American as Elvis and peanut butter sandwiches. If they couldn’t go to Cali, they’d end up in Nevada or New Mexico. As is, they land “like everything loose” in the Golden State where the customs may be strange but the economy is world-class.
