The California Secessionist Party
I feel that the Secessionist movement in California needs to get alot more serious than it is right now. Here are a few prerequisite notes about what California is faced with now as far as the secession the state is concerned.|
----- Immediate secession is DEFINATELY not possible as of yet. California is tied WAY too much to the federal government for an easy break to occur. Financially, fiscally, economically, socially, culturally, politically, militarilly, in too many aspects, the ties are too strong for the secessionist movement to grow any further than it potentially can right now. In fact, ANY secession movement within the politically-enforced borders of the United States cannot achieve an easy break, be it in the Southeast, Texas, New England, Cascadia, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, American Samoa, or Alaska.
In order for the ties to be softened, and simultaneously loosened up gradually, the common people have to see an immediate need that would invite this option into their individual environs. Furthermore, secession CANNOT be advocated immediately, as this would be seen as extremism by the American public. Instead, an organization or bloc that advocates 1) The reduction of Californian reliance on federally-provided stuffs like funds and whatnot (replacing it all with a thriving public sector), 2) the establishment of a parliamentary and equally-representable legislature, and 3) the divestment of the executive branch of almost all power, including veto, must become politically active statewide, attracting special electoral support from the urban areas of the 8 or 10 largest cities in California (particularly Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, Long Beach, Oakland, Fresno, Sacramento, San Jose, Santa Ana, and Anaheim).
I call this the California Bloc, part of the West Coast Bloc, which will also have separate branches for Washington, Oregon, and Hawaii.
What do you all think?
