Californians plan to hold referendum on independence.
The Californian Secretary of State, Alex Padilla has given the green light to a campaign group called Yes California Independence Campaign which intends to hold a referendum on whether California should secede from the United States and become an independent country. For the question of Californian independence to appear on the November 2018 ballot, the group must collect 600,000 valid voter signatures by the 25th July of this year.
The movement claims that the impetus behind the proposed referendum on secession is because being a US state is ‘no longer serving California’s best interests.’ The group has lodged several grievances most of which concern foreign and defense policy and the War on Terror. According to a recent poll by Reuters/Ipsos, there is some public support in the Sunshine State for this proposal. 32% of Californians claim that they would vote for independence in the wake of the election of Donald Trump to the office of President of the United States. In 2014, only 20% of Californians expressed a desire to see their state become an independent republic.
If the group are successful in getting the measure on the ballot paper, then voters would be asked to repeal the clause that describes the US Constitution as the ‘supreme law of the land.’ If voters approve of this message, then there would be a nationwide referendum on Californian independence. To pass, the ballot must be approved with 55% of the vote by at least 50% of registered voters. If this were the case, then California would apply to join the United Nations as an independent republic.
The vice-president of Yes California, Marcus Evans, believes that if the measure gets on the ballot paper that his campaign will prevail. “America already hates California, and America votes on emotions, ” he said, “I think we’d have the votes today if we held it.”
