California’s proposed secession demonstrates the severity of those opposing Donald Trump’s presidency, as well as the underlying fragility of the fragmented Superpower

Karl Marx once told us that, “History repeats itself, first as tragedy, second as farce.”. I believe, in terms of current tyrannical rule of the U.S.A, we witnessed the tragedy under the leadership of George Bush II - who was the political puppet behind an array of oil wars in the Middle East that began in 2001 and continue to this day, murdering thousands of innocent lives.
With Donald Trump’s presidency set to begin on January 20th 2017, it’s safe to say that we are currently witnessing the largest political farce in recent history.
The farce in this instance is obviously Donald Trump; a man whose presidency once seemed like a joke up until yesterday. It’s a conclusion to a presidential campaign that was just as disastrous as the top two runners, and I can’t necessarily say I’m at all surprised at the outcome.
However, the campaign is over and it’s combative publicity sidelined until the next election, the social tide will now turn towards America’s new Leader. Whether Donald Trump will prove to be a good President is obviously unknown, but sceptics seem to be in the majority.
So much in the majority, that the State of California is calling for a 2018 secession from the United States of America
Does the State of California really want to become its own nation?
Apparently they do, and they’re calling it, “Calexit”.
There is a very legitimate group by the name of Yes California Independence Campaign, and they have notified us on their website that in the Spring of 2019, Californians will go to the polls to vote to decide by referendum if California should exit the United States Union.
The movement has racked up an impressive backer already in Shervin Pishevar, an early investor in Uber and well-known angel investor. Shervin stated on Twitter that he would bankroll a campaign to make California its own nation if Trump won.
He has recently confirmed this claim.
Californians proved their Democratic political ideology, as well as their distaste for Trump by voting 61.5% for Clinton, and 33.3% for Trump. But the state and its citizens have carefully weighed their options, and becoming their own nation seems to be the best idea, at least for now.
