#CalExit Next? Talk of California Seceding Growing After Trump Win

Interest in #CalExit, a push for California to secede from the nation, has grown following the election of Donald Trump.

In the spring of 2019, a referendum will be on the ballot for voters in the state to determine if they should exit the United States.

On election day, the Los Angeles Times notes, voters in the Golden State opted to tighten gun control, extend taxes on the rich, increase their already high cigarette taxes, legalize marijuana, and boost multilingual education. Voters in California also overwhelmingly chose Hillary Clinton. The state’s policies will be in serious conflict with the federal policies proposed by Trump.

For this reason, it is not difficult to see why the

“Yes California Independence Campaign” is gaining traction. Democratic Governor Jerry Brown stated during the election season that a Trump win would require them to “build a wall around California.” “Yes California is the nonviolent campaign to establish the country of California using any and all legal and constitutional means to do so,” the Yes California website states. “We advocate for peaceful secession from the United States by use of an independence referendum to establish a mandate, followed by a nationwide campaign to advocate in support of a constitutional exit from the Union.”
