#1 Democrats are contemplating secession and potential civil war as they game out possible scenarios for a closely contested election...

...or Biden defeat.

#2 Dims are going to cheat by mail nationally. That is why only Dims hold office on the West Coast. They know Trump will not allow the fraudulant results nation wide. This is all propaganda to demonize Trump.

#3 The South tried that. Didn't go so well.

#4 Ref #2: Dims are going to cheat

I'm still not convinced massive 'cheating' didn't happen in 2008 and 2012 as well. My confidence was severely shaken in the American voter on both occasions. The fact that a slick, quick talking Chicago/Kenyan hoodlum appeared to have gotten over 100 votes remains deeply troubling.

#5 Let 'em secede. You voluntarily join a compact, you can voluntarily leave. 1861 was a travesty.

#6 ...should have read the fine print, "Significant penalties for early withdraw"

Try the Constitutional route. 2/3rds of the House and Senate and 3/4th states for approval. Though in California's case, it only requires a renegotiation with Mexico of the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo with approval of 2/3rds of the Senate to return designated lands to Mexico. I'd hold out for an I-10 corridor to San Diego.

#7 I'm all for some of those cities leaving. Take Seattle, Portland, Sacramento, Los Angeles. Only kicker, we keep northern and eastern CA, Oregon and Washington.

No water, electricity, fuel or food will be exported to your cities unless paid for.

Those cities will be dead in 2 years.

#8 Dems like to play games? Who would have known?

Is there not a less drastic solution than secession that just involves a good house cleaning of California corruption?

OTH, Secession of California might not be a bad thing?

#9 Elections (actually, the no-holds-barred quest for power) are war. They (the left) said it. Is the right listening? I doubt it.

#10 I've said this before: I can't see Gavin Newsom organizing any kind of army. He is a corrupt slime ball, not a military leader. Just north of me is the Camp Pendleton Marine Base. Those guys could occupy Sacramento in short order and Newsom would be in jail awaiting trial for treason.

#12 Look at Beirut today Democrats. Anarchy is not a good direction to evolve.

#13 So when they announce it, will it be time to re-christen May Day to Impale a commie day?
