    California - Sanctuary State

    California is about to pass legislation to become a sanctuary state, openly defying Federal Law. The real motive, obviously, is to stick it to the Trump administration.

    Next the conservatives will be accusing California of conspiring with the Russians!

    Nobody needs to make an enemies list trying to "stick it to the Trump administration" - the Trumps are quite capable of doing it to themselves without any outside help!

    Having lived in Cali for over 40 years, I can guarantee you that they would have NEVER voted for someone like Trump.
    As a nation, we began by declaring that "all men are created equal." We now practically read it "all men are created equal, except negroes."
    When the Know-Nothings get control, it will read "all men are created equal, except negroes, and foreigners, and Catholics."
    When it comes to this I should prefer emigrating to some country where they make no pretense of loving liberty
    -- to Russia, for instance, where despotism can be taken pure, and without the base alloy of hypocrisy.

    California would lose it's military personnel, as it is the military of the USA.
    And the equipment leaves too.
    Including all the shipping vessels and equipment.

    Can California afford to establish its own military?
    Can it buy or build enough equipment and man-power to establish it's own military defense?

    Can California build or buy enough ships for import/export trade?

    Would the USA stand for California having nukes?
    Would the USA allow California to use it's air space?

    So many questions.

    Unfortunately. Though if it did, I would want to make sure to be back in Cali before it happened.

    Lose how? Like, a Californian wouldn't be given the chance to stay with his or her state as it exits the Union?

    That seems...unlikely.

    Our tax dollars paid for the equipment. Some of it is rightfully ours. And it's not like the US is terribly discerning who they sell stuff to.

    Plus, a lot of it was developed here.

    California is a rich state. It represents about 12% of the US population, but about 14% of the country's GDP. Economically, it could save money not subsidizing the rest of the country.

    Of course, I have to hope we wouldn't get into a situation where we have to spend so much on military. But, it absolutely could, if it came down to it.

    Quote Originally Posted by Tambora View Post

    Actually, in California, we practice an economic system called "capitalism", where the government doesn't own the things. You should really give it a look.

    What would we need them for?

    That question can be asked in both directions. And it's not like California is land-locked. You know what would be annoying for the US? Having to fly around California to get out over the ocean.

    It's not going to happen. It's fun to run scenarios, but it's not going to happen. We haven't given up on this backwards union yet.
    Global warming denialists are like gravity denialists piloting a helicopter, determined to prove a point. We may not have time to actually persuade them of their mistake.
