You may be thinking that getting rid of the leftist loons that make up a huge part of the population of the left coast is not such a bad thing.
Believe it or not, there are some there that want to break ties with the U.S. And the Brexit folks are helping them along.
Independent Journal Review reports:

After President Donald Trump ascended to office, progressives wanted the entire stateto exit from the United States.
… And now people who want to split from Hollywood, Los Angeles and San Francisco believe they have the political horsepower to pull off such a move.
The Sunday Times reports that the men known as the “bad boys of Brexit,” Nigel Farage and Arron Banks, have agreed to manage the initiative campaign for the latest version of Calexit:
“Banks said: “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.”
The goal would be to get the initiative qualified for the ballot in November 2018.
Farage and Banks attended big fundraisers in Orange County, where $1 million was raised to get the campaign started. The Times reports that backers of the split say big money is coming out of the woodwork to fuel the effort:
“Farage then attended several fundraising events in [Republican congressional candidate Scott] Baugh’s Orange County base. One dinner raised about $500,000 from several hundred guests. A similar sum was raised at a more select gathering for wealthy donors — many of whom were agriculture tycoons, tech entrepreneurs and lawyers disillusioned with the liberal Democrats who run the state.”
If California divorces from the U.S. does that mean we get to stop paying for their social programs and sanctuary cities? Do they know that they will be on the hook for their own social programs?
