Just as folks around the nation have been waking up to the very real possibility of a Civil War occurring in modern America, California takes one step closer to actually seceding.

No, this isn’t a hyperbolic bit of showmanship as we see down in Texas every so often, this is a full on movement with true momentum, thanks to the state’s wholesale hatred of American conservatives.  Now, after years of cleverly calling for “#CalExit”, enough support has been amassed and California’s secession from the United States will be a very, very real possibility.

Advocates who want California to secede from the rest of the United States were given the green light Monday to begin collecting signatures for their initiative.

California’s Secretary of State Alex Padilla announced the ballot proposal had been cleared.

The latest measure would ask voters in 2020 to decide whether to open up a secession discussion. If passed, a second election would be held a year later asking voters to affirm the decision and become an independent country.

Advocates have until mid-October to gather 365,880 signatures of registered voters to get it on the ballot.

And we mustn’t forget that this isn’t the only California independence movement out there, either.

And if that were not enough, there’s yet another proposal in play known as “New California” that would cut out rural counties and make them into individual states.

The founders of New California describe the rest of California as “ungovernable.”

“The current state of California has become governed by a tyranny,” the group declared in an online statement.

Similar measures have also been considered in states such as New York and Texas, with the latter leaving secession open for fifteen decades.

“We’re the only state that can divide ourselves without anybody’s permission,” says Donald W. Whisenhunt, a Texas native and author of the 1987 book The Five States of Texas: An Immodest Proposal. “That’s just the way it is.”

Article IV, Section 3, of the U.S. Constitution states that Congress must approve any new states. But Texas’ claim to an exception comes straight from the 1845 joint congressional resolution admitting Texas into the Union. It reads: “New States of convenient size not exceeding four in number, in addition to said State of Texas and having sufficient population, may, hereafter by the consent of said State, be formed out of the territory thereof, which shall be entitled to admission under the provisions of the Federal Constitution.” Supporters of Texas division say this means that Congress pre-approved a breakup.

So, should the proverbial matter hit the fan, I think I know where I’m headed.  I hear Texas Zone IV is lovely this time of year.

Besides, who would want to live in Commie-fornia?
