California Secession Movement Leader: ‘Our Values Are Different’ Than The United States

By  | 

A leader for the CalExit movement told Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson “This is California. We’re not the United States. Our values are different,” and that it’s time to formalize that reality.

I hate to tell him, but MOST people in Californian are not far left nut-jobs. California has just let the far left get a hold of Sacramento and they are destroying it!

“This is California. We’re not the United States. Our values are different,” said Shankar Singram, vice president of the California Freedom Coalition. “We’re fundamentally different in how we act and speak and think about the world globally. Whether it has to do with war, the climate, the environment. We’re just a different state.”

He added, “We are going to do things that are beneficial for our state, and we disregard what the United States thinks or even their laws,” pointing to sanctuary cities and marijuana laws as examples where the state is currently defying the feds.

Californians may soon get the opportunity to vote to secede.

There is an official ballot measure title that allows CalExit supporters to start gathering the 585,000 signatures needed to place the matter before the state’s voters in 2018.

“The initiative would form a commission to recommend avenues for California to pursue its independence and delete part of the state constitution that says it is an inseparable part of the U.S. The measure would also instruct the governor and California congressional delegation to negotiate more autonomy for the state,” according to the Associated Press.

I personally am all for them leaving. California is in a SERIOUS financial crisis and has the nation’s highest poverty rate, when factoring in cost-of-living. It’s higher than New Mexico, higher than any of the southern states like Louisiana or Alabama, and even higher than Idaho. If they want to follow the liberal rabbit hole, go to it. At least the rest of us will not have to bail them out.

California recently made grocery bags illegal and weed legal. But what happens if you get stoned and forget to bring your reusable grocery bags when you go shopping?

As California passed even more gun control and hiked tons of taxes, most of the rest of the country moved the other direction.

California already has the most stringent gun laws in the country. Its gun crime stats remain the worst of any state. Yet, they thought they needed more. The state desperate for jobs continues to regulate any business out of business.

While in the midst of a severe drought, they continue to waste trillions of gallons of freshwater on a minnow and dry up valuable farmland.

As thousands of businesses and millions flee the chaos, Sacramento continues the insanity.

But California has almost identical resources as Texas, and while Texas is flourishing, California is bankrupt.

So…go ahead and secede! In addition to the huge burden on the rest of the country. If not for the founding fathers giving us the Electoral College, you would have made the sole decision for the rest of us to continue your failed policies.

The real problem is that when you leave the So Cal Basin and the San Francisco Bay area, the rest of California is mostly red. Maybe the best solution is to let them secede and let the rest of them do their own thing!

Buh Bye!
