Lets say we did like the USSR, and the west coast formed a unified republic, what would the economy look like in terms of exports/imports (skilled labor, resources, goods,etc...)? Could we be completely self-sufficient? With lets say... plenty of Nuclear energy, distributed renewable electricity/water production, lots of mass-transport...etc. (i.e. could we look like Europe)?

Do you even have to ask?

California has/had (is capable anyway) a larger economy than France.

There isn't a goddamned thing that we don't have.

Oh yeah, fuck the idea of Cascadia.

We don't need bullshit states/provinces like Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia.

I'll be goddamned before that shit ever rides.

My main interest in having California secede is because of North Korea. When shit hits the fan who do you think is gonna get bombed first? D.C.? Fuck that.

Cut off the food supply? Destory the Central Valley? Nuke L.A./S.F.?

Not on my watch.

Also, it would be great to trade to with other nations that the United States has imposed trade embargos on, i.e. Cuba.

Cuba will never be a prosperous nation unless nations other than Vietnam, etc. are allowed to trade with them as well.

The world has to face the fact that they need California. If the U.S. wanted to get brave and say, "If you trade with Cuba we're not gonna trade with you."

Fine. Fuck the United States.

We're self-sufficient anyway.
