For years, Californians have been stifled by liberals in their state. The coastal elite essentially determines all the liberal policies that have bankrupted the state. Conservative Californians are sick of it and are now looking to change it for good.
Conservatives in California have had enough of being pushed around by liberals, and I cannot say that I blame them. So, because of this, the state of California has proposed a plan that should rectify this. The proposed “Calexit” plan would split the state into an eastern and western area which should balance the scales.
And, they have enlisted the help of Brexit’s very own Nigel Farage and Aaron Banks to make this possible.
According to Daily Mail:
Former UKip leader Nigel Farage and Leave backer Arron Banks have just returned from the United States, where they helped raise $1 million (£800,000) for a ‘Calexit’ campaign, which would split California into two eastern and western regions.
There are several ‘Calexit’ campaigns competing for a referendum in the United States, with one aiming to remove the state from America entirely as a response to President Donald Trump being elected last year.
Farage and Banks, who led the ‘Leave.EU’ campaign, appear to be pitting the eastern, more rural side of California against the western ‘coastal elite’ liberals in Los Angeles and San Francisco.
If broken apart, the eastern part of California would more likely vote Republican, giving the party two more senators and electoral college votes for a 2020 presidential election.
The Western side of the state would likely continue to vote Democrat in elections.
Banks said of the campaign: “It would be portrayed as the Hollywood elites versus the people, breaking up the bad government. Seventy-eight percent of people in California are unhappy with their government. It’s the world’s sixth largest economy and it’s very badly run.”
This is quite the shakeup and rather exciting. The state California deserves a chance to be free from these liberal chains of oppression. If they want to run their portion of the state into the ground, go for it. I am sure that there are plenty of people who do not want this, but voting them out has not worked so far.
It seems that maybe it is time for drastic measures in order to achieve the change we need. I am not sure if this will work but if Farage and Banks are working on this it definitely holds a good chance.
