California is at it again.
You may have heard Catalonia, a region in northeast Spain where the tony resort city of Barcelona is located, wants to secede and become independent. The French-speaking province of Quebec tried the same thing with Canada a few years earlier. And the quirky Scots narrowly failed to vote independence from England and the British Empire. The separatist sentiments continue to smolder in all those regions.
Experts say the quest for separation is due to differences from the rest of the country in a region’s culture, language, religion, ancestral origins, or relative prosperity. Quebec, for instance, speaks French and has a more robust industrial base than other areas—all English speaking—of Canada. The Catalonians also have a unique local language and are by and large wealthier than elsewhere in Spain. And the Scots? Well, they’re just Scots; there’s really no one else like them.
So how is California so different that it wants to be separate from the rest of America? HardWired News has done an exhaustive scientific study and learned exactly why.
So there really are fundamental differences between California and authentic America. To be clear, we are talking about the uber-left western regions such as LA, Santa Barbara, San Francisco, Berkeley (of course), San Jose (school’s still out on San Diego). The northern-and-easternmost areas are quite normal and would likely remain American.
So should we let the over-the-moon, whacko liberal areas secede and become their own country? It’s an interesting proposition. Eventually, America could establish diplomatic relations and allow well-regulated tourism and trade between the countries. Although we could never, ever—under any circumstances—allow them to acquire nuclear weapons! It would be the same as giving your toddler scissors to run around with.
