    else the States would still have the right to leave, instead of being forced off the cliff this nation seems to be jumping from


    thank you, Mr Lincoln

    The Civil War only settled the question of unilateral secession, not mutual. If the rest of the states agree that you should leave you can.

    At what point will the other states tire of Crazy Uncle California?

    And the award for no sense of humor goes to....... Jillian!

    California is more the crazy uncle who you invite over and he does nothing but ramble on about the uses of hemp and checks your sofa for change. Texas is the crazy uncle you dont go visit without calling first because he has barbed wire around his property, and signs warning he will shoot all trespassers.

    I have a great sense of humor when things of funny. And had you said Cali and Texas, I prolly would have laughed. But it looked like a typical righty potshot.

    Cheers if I was wrong. :cheers2:

    California has about 1/8 of the total US population and has a GDP larger than most countries. I would be careful what I wish for red staters
