Californians and their hordes of illegal aliens want to secede from the United States. Advocates have organized a petition drive to put nationhood on the ballot in 2018.
According to Marinelli, the so-called Calexit backers have about 7,000 supporters mobilized to gather signatures statewide for the new California nationhood initiative. The California Secretary of State's office said Thursday the backers of the measure must collect the signatures of 585,407 registered voters to qualify for the ballot. Organizers have until July 25, 2017, to meet the requirement.
"We think it's going to be quite easy for us to make the sell," said Marinelli. "California is a different place and has its own culture, its own history, its own identity, its own world view, and its own ideology in a large respect. So we would feel better off if we can set our own destiny, set our own path forward and not be connected to a lot of these obsolete policies of the American system."
Added Marinelli, "There's a lot of this dysfunction going on in the American system, the corruption in Washington, the animosity within the United States as a whole. So we want to break away from all that and set a new path forward. To establish for ourselves some kind of progressive republic on the western shores of North America."
I’ll sign that petition. California is a malignant tumor on the body politic. This union is not a suicide pact and the libtards who infest that state are killing this republic. Detractors will say the American Civil War settled all notions of secession. Well, there is a big difference. The South wanted to leave the union, but the North wouldn’t let them go. Calexit is a mutual agreement. These people don’t want to be Americans. They want to be progressives. And as far as I’m concerned, good riddance.
