Campaign underway to make California a separate country

Some Californians are trying to secede from the United States in a movement dubbed, “Calexit,” and they say Donald Trump’s election has given their cause new momentum.

The movement is led in large part by Shervin Pishevar, an early investor in Uber. He’s funding a campaign for the Golden State to secede from the union.

Pishevar, who hosted a fundraiser for Clinton in July, resigned from the J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board.

He tells President Barack Obama that he, “cannot serve President Trump with a good conscience.”

Venture Capitalist Paul Holland, who recently hosted Tim Kaine, spoke about the secession idea.

“If anybody would be able to do it, it would be California. It’s the sixth largest economy. It’s relatively self-sufficient int hat we can provide most of our food and most of our own labor,” said Holland.

The hashtag #CalExit started trending Tuesday night.

But there is push back. Some say Pishevar and his tech supporters should focus on working to improve and not leave the United States.

    Too bad the constitution wont lettem. Maybe they could use military type force, but theyd all be rightly shot in the foreheads for treason. Just the name of the game. Ignorance must be bliss. Idiots.
