Donald Trump won and California wants to secede.
Mises Institute President Jeff Deist tweeted during the election: “look for the Dems to discover the virtues of secession, nullification, and states rights.”
It didn’t take long for leftists to realize the value of secession. Within hours of Trump’s stunning victory (a victory yours truly predicted as early as February this year), social media was set ablaze by Californians wanting out. Celebrity blogger Perez Hilton posted, “we must secede!”
He was quickly egged on, with many wanting Oregon and Washington to join California in a Pacific union.
Why not? Such a confederation would have substantial economic muscle and would be able to pursue their crazy socialist and hedonistic utopia without interference from us Southern lowlifes.
Heck, we provided the blueprint, though one would hope that secession in the 21st century would be a peaceful process. Southerners wouldn’t fight to keep you in.
In reality, the South should have never led the way.
