Well, there’s a new exit in town dubbed, “Calexit,” and it’s brewing right here in these United States.
This isn’t a new venture. According to Business Insider, fringe political group Yes California Independence Campaign has been led by Louis Marinelli since 2015.
One of the group's main goals is to get the state secede from the American Union. However, Marinelli recently withdrew from the movement and moved to Russia, which led to Calexit talk quieting down a bit.
But Yahoo! Finance reports that thanks to Charlottesville, the movement is gaining renewed energy.
Former Yes California vice president Marcus Ruiz Evans is taking the reins from Marinelli, and will step into Yes California's president post.
"It's ridiculous, but it represents why California needs to have an exit plan in place. Things are going to get worse in this country before they get better, and this campaign all along has been about California disconnecting itself from a sinking Titanic," said Evans in regards to the Trump’s Charlottesville statements.
So, how will an actual California secession occur?
After the Civil War, the federal government wanted to make sure states couldn't just go waltzing off any ol' time they felt like it.
Newsweek breaks it down: in order to officially part from the United States, California would need to amend the U.S. Constitution, which has to be approved by at least two-thirds of the other 49 states.
Getting 33 states to say they don't mind California leaving will be no easy task.
But before that, California has to decide it wants to leave.
To get that to happen, Yes California plans to file a ballot measure for voters to weigh in during a 2018 special election.
As unlikely as all this many seem, remember, Brexit and our president were once mathematical impossibilities. We'll keep you updated!
