THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CALIFORNIA - This site is dedicated to exposing the continuing Marxist Revolution in California and the all around massive stupidity of Socialists, Luddites, Communists, Fellow Travelers and of Liberalism in all of its ugly forms.

"It was a splendid population - for all the slow, sleepy, sluggish-brained sloths stayed at home - you never find that sort of people among pioneers - you cannot build pioneers out of that sort of material. It was that population that gave to California a name for getting up astounding enterprises and rushing them through with a magnificent dash and daring and a recklessness of cost or consequences, which she bears unto this day - and when she projects a new surprise the grave world smiles as usual and says, "Well, that is California all over."

California secession group to hold meet-up at State Capitol

For a huge 25 days the California Republic was an independent nation.

An Independent California

  • The drive for smaller government that is closer to the people is worldwide. Scotland looks at independence from Britain, Catalonia from Spain, the Kurds from Turkey or the now broken up former Yugoslavia.
  • So why not California? I have an open mind.

(San Francisco Chronicle)  -  An organization hoping to facilitate the secession of California from the Union is holding a meet and greet on the Capitol steps in Sacramento next Wednesday, November 9, 2016, or, the day after the presidential election.
The Yes California Independence Campaign, which is based in San Diego, is aiming to qualify a citizen's initiative in 2018 to get a referendum for secession on the ballot in 2019. They'll be in Sacramento to garner support for their initiative. 
"In our view," a statement on its website reads, "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."

Borders are not written in stone so why not an independent California?

And it appears the organization has been considering its strategy for quite a while now. On its site, you'll find a link to a 33-page "Blue Book" wherein the organization answers any hypothetical questions about the state becoming its own country. The details for the secession — dubbed the #CalExit — include such topics such as "Will we join the United Nations?" and "Will we have our own Olympic team?".
While the notion of an independent California does seem well-intended — points about immigration, environmental concerns, and education are thoughtful — the practicality of such a proposal is tenuous at best.
Will this secession campaign be viable? In a word: No. As we know from the Civil War, just because a state wants to secede doesn't mean the Union will let it. As Washington Post writer Philip Bump wrote earlier this year, Congress simply would not, for many reasons, allow it.
"There's no mechanism for Congress to simply say, 'Sure, off you go.' Once you're in, you're in," he wrote. "The United States was born an expansionist enterprise, and the idea of contraction, it seems, never really came up."

My opinion is, let them go. In fact we should all go there and vote for it.....many times. Then we can watch another progressive paradise in action in the fashion of Chicago, Detroit, Dearborn, Michigan, North Korea, Cuba, Venezuela....

If the social justice warriors in California want out of the USA so be it.

We will keep the water and electricity flowing there until all the rest of the SJW's migrate there.

China may decide to invade. If that happens don't ask us Deplorable rednecks and hillbillies out here in flyover land to come and do your fighting for you. We are going to sit this one out. No we will just cut off your water and electric then let the Chinese provide it for you. They won't. They don't want SJW's in what's now their country.
