I don't think Trump would allow it. That's a pretty long fence...Then again it looks like California might want to pay for it.

I thought they would build a wall around California, that would solve many problems.

Might as well. They've got their own laws, their own economy, their own cancer. Its Practically a separate country already.

very true, highest minimum wage of any state, highest gas prices etc etc too. No more federal money, they would go bankrupt in 2 years? maybe less?

Sure thing, just like Texas should've seceded when Obama won back in 2009, right?

Point is, when a Democrat President wins, Red States will gripe and threaten to secede. When a Republican President wins, Blue States will gripe and threaten to secede.
I think the events of 150 years ago made it clear that a state may not secede from the Union. The U.S.S.R. collapsed because it made the mistake of adding a right to secede to its constitution.

I would definitely support this, but my concern is we'd have an additional millions of illegals pouring across our border, as Californicans realize they have to pay for all their liberal policies themselves. We can live without them, but they can't live without us. But I sure do wish they'd try.

yeah I agree, they can't live w/o us, that state is circling the drain, just compare price of average things like gas, things you need etc.

I'll admit, though, if California did secede it'd be like a gift from Heaven for the Republican Party. They'd win every election in the foreseeable future.

Support for Calexit- It would allow a full democracy to be viable without a completely biased large land mass. This would allow the destruction of the electoral college which the democrats now apparently want.

Uhhmmm... I didn't know that. But, why do californians want to secede? You americans seem to be so homogeneous, culturally speaking. I mean, there are other independence movements in other parts of the world but they happen to culturally differ from the rest. For instance, in Catalonia people want to secede, but it is because they have been historically a different nation, they even have their own language. Well, all Spain are composed of different nations, it is a heterogeneous country.

If it is a money issue, it can be solved with a simple law. A secession seems to be so exagerated.
