The latest from Kapitalist Kitty
It’s just that simple. Brexit was the conservatives’ big love child across the pond, yet the concept of California seceding the Union was laughed at and dismissed by conservatives this side of the Atlantic.
Now some of the more clever conservatives have said that they would favour a California secession because the country would then lose 55 electoral (blue) votes and a “liberal” state that in their opinion doesn’t reflect the overall attitude of the nation. This is even though the country leans centre left on many of the most important issues, including healthcare and foreign policy.
That’s a large part of why I don’t like the idea of California breaking off (won’t happen anyway); they actually more accurately reflect how Americans feel than any sample taken out of rural Texas does.
