    #Calexit: California seeks independence from United States

    In the spring of 2019, Californians will hit the polls to determine if California will become an independent country from the United States.

    In the spring of 2019, Californians will hit the polls to determine if California will become an independent country from the United States.

    The movement is called #Calexit, and the website yescalifornia.org has laid out nine different arguments for California’s break with the rest of the United States: peace and security, elections and government, trade and regulation, debt and taxes, immigration, national resources, the environment, health and medicine, and education.

    The Yes California Independence Campaign is working to qualify a 2018 ballot that would call for a special election to determine if California will split from the country if the measure is passed.

    –‘Not My President’: Thousands more hit city streets to protest Trump election–

    As the website explained, the referendum “is about California taking its place in the world, standing as an equal among nations. We believe in two fundamental truths: (1) California exerts a positive influence on the rest of the world, and (2) California could do more good as an independent country than it is able to do as a just a U.S. state.”

    “As the sixth largest economy in the world, California is more economically powerful than France and has a population larger than Poland. Point by point, California compares and competes with countries, not just the 49 other states,” the citizen’s initiative reads.

    The Californians may not have to wait too long, when and if the big earthquake comes they could be separated permanently.

    The other 49 states will put on their blue Union hat and go to fight that proposal.
