I was hoping this would work
Nothing better than controversy

Quote:

The man who launched an initiative to split California from the United States has withdrawn his proposal, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Marcus Ruiz Evans, who began collecting signatures for the initiative three months ago, sent an email Monday to the secretary of state asking to cancel the proposal.

The initiative would've asked voters in November to call a special election in March 2019 – when they would be asked to vote on formal secession.

"The biggest obstacle to Calexit is having a professional grass roots administration," Evans told the Times in an email, adding he hopes to revive the issue with a new organization.

The Times reported Evans launched the effort shortly after the election of President Donald Trump, and by December, former San Diego resident Louis Marinelli opened what he called a California embassy in Moscow.

He blamed the initiative's failure on media coverage that "simultaneously sensationalized, exaggerated, and dramatized information about our campaign and particularly about myself in an effort to delegitimize our effort and demoralize our supporters," the Times reported.

"The truth is Calexit, like any campaign, is entirely possible with the right amount of public support," he told the Times. "With the right amount of public support, anything can be accomplished regardless of legal or constitutional barriers."

If the initiative had succeeded and there was a vote to secede, there's still the problem of Texas v White, in which the SCOTUS ruled states could not secede. So, it's likely the issue would end up in court and go all the way to the SCOTUS.

I guess we'll have to just wait for the San Andreus Solution (and the Left Coast to fall away into the grimey deep of the Pacific).  Anyone want to buy some beachfront property at the foot of the Rocky's or High Sierra Range?

I don't think the Rocky's or High Sierra Range, would stop the water.   Undecided

Maybe if all of Fly Over America on this side of the Continental Divide, just scheduled a date and time that we'd all jump up and down really hard...we could ceate a Calexit!

Hope all you want but it's not going to happen.
They have taken in money through donations and still doing so.
The whole thing is little more than some bullsh*t money scheme.

You might be right there old Glen.... Wink Wink

The 'Hope' part was for a shakeup of a magnitude we have not ever seen in our lifetime

That's what I'm talking about... Wink

Now go and grab your Trump Pom poms..  Grin
