Since President-elect Donald Trump’s victory was announced early Wednesday morning, #Calexit has been a trending hashtag on Twitter from liberals looking to create their own sovereign state in California, according to the U.K. Metro.
If you can’t beat ’em, secede because you can’t handle losing.
Few people were expecting a Trump victory over Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton, and even fewer expected that he would start out in the lead, remain in the lead, and never falter through the night.
Few people predicted that the Republicans would also retain both the House of Representatives and the Senate.
Frankly, last night was a slam dunk for Republicans, not too different from the 2008 election of Barack Obama for liberals.
At the time, conservatives shut up and soldiered on.
Although liberals really ought to do the same, let’s pause and think for a moment what the United States and this brave new California would look like if California seceded.
Assuming there’s no sort of military retribution on the part of the United States, which would end things pretty quickly, California’s economy would flatline.
The Mercatus Center at George Mason University ranked the state of California 44th in terms of fiscal responsibility this year. Other heavily Democrat states — Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York and Maryland — were all in the bottom 10.
Although California’s economy is massive, it needs the United States.
The interesting aspect about a possible California secession, however, is not economic — it’s electoral.
Imagine an election board with 55 solidly Democrat delegates wiped off the map. It’d be even bigger than the Republicans losing Texas; the Dems would never win another general election again unless traditional state leanings changed radically.
If they want to leave, maybe we should help them pack.
