California Granted Permission to Vote on Seceding From the United States — If…

A campaign for independence of the state of California from the United States is being spearheaded by an organization called YesCalifornia — and permission by the attorney general of California was recently granted to the campaign which advocates the official secession of California to begin collecting signatures to qualify what is known as the California Self-Determination Referendum Act for the ballot in November of 2020.

California Granted Permission to Vote on Seceding From the United States — If…

A minimum of 366,880 signatures from registered voters in California over the next six months is required for them to decide during the next presidential election in 2020 to decide whether to hold an independence referendum vote in California — which is also known as Calexit — on Tuesday, May 4, 2021.

“It is very possible that President Trump will be reelected in 2020. Don’t tell us it won’t happen because frankly people said it wouldn’t happen in 2016,” Marcus Ruiz Evans — who is a co-sponsor of the referendum — said, according to this article. “If President Trump is reelected in 2020, Californians will want to secede from the United States just as they wanted to following the 2016 election. This ballot measure we are now circulating will make this vote possible. We are asking the people to hedge their bet in 2020: vote against Donald Trump, but at the same time vote to schedule an independence referendum for six months later on May 4, 2021. You may end up wanting the referendum if he is reelected.”

Stances and positions on such issues as the United States Census, immigration, taxation, agriculture, and cannabis are explained in the aforementioned article. One claim by the campaign is that California is already underrepresented in Washington; and that even though Californians paid $422.7 billion in taxes to the Internal Revenue Service, the state only received $289.4 billion in federal funding — resulting in a difference of $133.3 billion.


California becoming a sovereign nation should be interesting if only because a northern portion of the state wants to secede and become the state of Jefferson; and a large area comprised of 17 counties in California which calls itself New California and declared independence from the rest of the state as of Monday, January 15, 2018…

— and of course, that does not include the possibility for the District of Columbia to become a state as well.

The United States has been divided on a number of issues in recent years; and while the possibility of its boundaries and borders being altered might have been shrugged off years ago as a stunt of sorts, there may be an increased chance of that happening — although the processes of secession or statehood is difficult enough that it is not probable for all intents and purposes.

If that wall between Mexico and the United States is actually built, perhaps it can be done after California secedes from the United States and becomes its own country — saving American citizens from paying for approximately 140.4 miles of a total of 1,933.4 miles of that wall — unless California suffers the fate of eventually tumbling into the sea

    What does this have to do with travel? Are you saying going to CA will be needing a visa?

  2. David A Marquette says:

    this is a ridicules article. If such a referendum could pass in CA – and that is certainly possible as it can end up on the ballot – the US congress will not agree to this succession. Plus, similar to Brexit’s structural damage to the UK economy, Calif. in the end not that foolish (as the UK over EC immigration).

    Most of the illegal voting in the United States is in California. Just because someone has been living in California for 25 years does NOT allow them to vote ! You have to be a legal citizen. Can you get on an airplane or serve on a jury, go to a Dr.’s office or get a US passport without showing an ID ?
    Nuff said.
    I believe California is a red conservative state.
    The truth will come out. There is nothing hidden that shall not be revealed.
    Wait and see.
