[quote:Bob:MV84MDkzNDdfMTI0ODk2OTRfM0YwODNERUM=] Hmmm... Pros: Interesting question. On one hand, everyone in California wouldn't have to pay federal taxes, they get back less in federal funds then other states, and they are the 8th largest economy in the world WITHOUT the rest fo the us. Cons: California is sitting on several natural disasters waiting to happen and if the 'Big One' happens, they will BEG the Federal goverment to bail them out. They have a woefully underdeveloped eletrical grid. The federal goverment would undoubtedly remove all federal equipment and resources from the state. California has no effective military and would fall easy prey to anyone with any sort of desire to crush them. They are completely dependant on cars and have no oil resources and are completely dependant on the refineries in the rest of the US. In the end, everyone would hurt and nobody would come out ahead.

Why don't we ever hear about California seceding from the U.S. (Federal Government)? All we ever hear is, will Obama, through his grace and compassion, approve a bailout for California.
That is, will the Feds be kind enough to loan or grant California some fraction of the $100 or billion a year Californians render as tribute to the IRS each year. What do the people of California get in return for their billions in federal taxes (plus the trillions borrowed by the feds in their name)?
If it seceded, California would instantly solve it's budget problems. The question would then be, how to solve it's massive budget surpluses? It would instantly become one of the most prosperous nations on Earth!
Does Cali need the Fed? Or the other way around?
Should California secede????
