|From LA Times|
The last time Democratic Party controlled states voted to secede from the Union the Republican President and Congress decided to disagree and fight them on the issue. It was a long and costly effort for both sides, ultimately returning the Confederate states to the union. Just guessing, I don’t think that would happen again, but of course it would be the start of a domino chain that would effectively end the United States of America as we’ve come to know it.
As in any breakup once the emotional exclamations are over the hard work comes in the division of assets and the accounting of debts and their settlement. I can’t begin to imagine the nightmare the bean counters will face as they start to close California’s bar tab with the Federal Government. Then comes the matter of currency. Fortunately, Chinese investors are buying up so much of California the conversion to the Yuan should be pretty straight forward.
I so look forward to 2018, and the adventures that await.
