Calexit: “Consent of the States” Project
STEP 1 — EMAIL/ MAIL OR CALL your “state” (not Federal) elected officials and SEND/SAY this:
In Texas v. White, the Supreme Court ruled that a state may secede from the Union by revolution or “through consent of the states”.
I support the Consent of the States Project; an effort to pass a resolution in a majority of the Nation’s state legislatures that gives the State of California consent to constitutionally secede from the United States and become an independent country.
Please propose this resolution in our State legislature:
RESOLUTION GRANTING CONSENT TO THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA TO SECEDE FROM THE UNITED STATES UNDER SUPREME COURT PRECEDENT
WHEREAS, the Constitution does not delegate to the federal government the power to grant or deny a State consent to secede from the Union, yet reserves all powers not delegated to the federal government to the States; and
WHEREAS, Supreme Court precedent set in Texas v. White allows a state to secede from the Union with the “consent of the states”;
BE IT THEREFORE RESOLVED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF _______________:
SECTION 1. The legislature of the State of _______________ hereby grants consent to the State of California to secede from the United States of America under long-standing precedent established by the Supreme Court of the United States in Texas v. White.
SECTION 2. The secretary of state is hereby directed to transmit copies of this resolution to the presiding officers of each of the legislative houses in the several States, requesting their cooperation on behalf of the State of California.
SECTION 3. This resolution constitutes one of several necessary resolutions required to obtain the “consent of the states” in accordance with established Supreme Court precedent, and shall remain the official position of this legislature until the legislatures of at least half of the several States have passed their own resolutions granting consent to the State of California to secede from the United States of America.
SECTION 4. The legislature of the State of _______________ hereby requests the Government of the United States to recognize the State of California as a free and independent country under the following conditions: (1) a majority of the legislatures of the several States pass a resolution granting the State of California consent to secede from the Union, and (2) the State of California conducts a fair and honest independence referendum which is approved by the voters of that State
STEP 2 — YOUR DONE.
NOW READ UP ON WHY THIS IDEA MAKES SO MUCH SENSE:
CONSENT OF THE STATES PROJECT “in the News”:
“The secessionists also shifted gears strategically, arguing that it will be legal for them to cut ties with the U.S. if a majority of other states agree. They argue that Republican-controlled legislatures would be happy to push the Democrat-run state out the door.”
“Yes California can appeal to Republican-controlled state houses that wouldn’t mind getting rid of a California dominated by Democrats.” “Outside California, the people who most ardently support the idea of California secession are conservatives,” read a post on Yes California’s website. “Right now, the Republican Party controls the legislatures of 31 states … we need just 25 of them to pass a resolution granting California its consent to exit the Union. And that is our goal and that is what we are working to achieve.”
“The Consent of the States Project seeks to take advantage of another political current: the frustration of not just red states but also neighboring states that have seen their political balance altered by the influx of Californians leaving the state in droves.”
“But the Calexit campaign’s latest approach appears to tap into real concerns of many non-Californians. Many Republicans lawmakers used California as an example of what happens to states when they’re controlled by the Democrats.”
AMERICA HATES CALIFORNIA “It is not (JUST) a reaction to California’s reaction to Trump — California was the MOST HATED PLACE BY AMERICANS — almost the entire time that Barack Obama was the President of America.”
(SEPT 2018) Politico points out that for the FIRST TIME — Republicans across America are focusing hate on California as a whole, instead of individual politicians. They seem to have come to conclusion that all of California is awful.
(MARCH 2017) Rasmussen polling, March 2017 — showed 41% of Republicans and 32% of ALL AMERICA — were not bothered by California leaving America. This was before the Sanctuary Cities war of words.
(Oct 2014) National voter poll conducted by FOX News shows that half of Americans want California “kicked out of the Union”

“The media portray California as a noir fantasyland of overcrowded schools, perpetual droughts, celebrity breakdowns, illegal immigration, hellish congestion and general malaise, captured in headlines like ‘Meltdown on the Ocean’ and ‘California’s wipeout economy’ and ‘Will California become America’s first failed state?’…the Krazy-Kalifornia criticism is likely to continue regardless of the facts”

Texas v White — The only Federal Supreme Court case on Secession
“In 1869, following the Civil War, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in Texas v. White that the initial act admitting a state to the Union “was final.” “There was no place for reconsideration, or revocation,” the court said, “except through revolution, or through consent of the states.””
