How quickly the worm turns. It seems now that Donald Trump has been elected, some wags in California are thinking of leaving. Good Times.
The group leading the charge, Yes California Independence Campaign, assembled long before Trump’s surprising victory. Its aim is to hold a referendum in 2018 that, if passed, would make California an independent country.Like many Americans, I thought that we had decided the issue of secession back in the late 1860s. Those of us who actually took American history in high school might remember studying that unpleasant time, Those of us in the South call it the War of Northern Aggression. Others call it something else.
But, yet, if California wants to secede, I'll sit back and joyfully watch them debate the measure. If nothing else, it will be amusing to catalog the arguments.
Let Freedom Ring.
