The Resistance News
February 10, 2017
First came Brexit, or UK out of European Union, then there are now talks of France Exit & Italy Exit, that could will end European Union (EU). These movements, to exit EU are often called “Popular Movement” of citizen who are disappointed in the EU.
Here in America, with Trump win, there are talks that Trump winning is similar to Brixit, in that people who voted for Trump are sick and tied of Washington DC. And by voting for Trump, they are Exiting Washington DC.
But the problem for that thinking is, Trump won the “Electorate Votes” but when it comes to “Popular Vote” Hillary got close to 3 million votes ahead of Trump, with California and New York heavily favoring Hillary. So in sum, Trump’s movement to Exit Washington DC, is a movement of minority Americans.
The majority of American voted for Hillary, & Hillary, many say, represents Washington DC, so in sum, majority of Americans, is not interested in Exiting Washington DC.
But there is a “Real Exit Movement” but a California Exit Movement, or “Calexit.”
Did you know, that on inauguration day, with Trump expected to become President, there will be massive demonstration of The Resistance to Trump’s Presidency, throughout America, like there is a “One Million Woman March” that will converge on Abraham Lincoln Monument.
I am from California & if you do not know, since Trump won the electorate & became President, the Calexit Movement, meaning the movement for California, to “Exit the Union” and become an “Independent Country” has gained a great deal of momentum
So Calexit Movement has gained a great deal of popularity, since Trump won, not as a sigh of Californian being sick and tired of the establishment, but Californian sick and tired of Trump, to the point sever media reported this.
Around Trump’s inauguration day, all over California, like San Francisco & Los Angeles, those who support Calexit held protest.
On California, it is the place where the “Reform Electorate System” started & this reform drive greatly supported is California.
I a San Franciscan who supports Calexit for very long time going back decades when movement was just guys talking when drunk in clubs. But there is a very good reason for Calexit and nothing to do with drunk guys trying to look smart for women, for one night stand.
The very good reason for Calexit is “Taxation Without Representation” meaning, believe it or not: Like in 2012, California gave the Federal Government about US$250 billion & got back about US$50 billion, or in another way of looking at it, a typical California pays about US$7,500 in Federal Income Tax, but the typical California gets back from the Federal Government US$1,500.
So you “Got That Right” that basically, Californian is “Subsidizing” the Federal Government Spending & again that because of “Electoral Vote System” typical California voter carries about 1/5 “Less Weight” meaning less “Impact & Important” to electing the President, than the typical voters, in most of the States in America?
And this “Taxation Without Representation” problem, is extremely important, for several reasons, for example, California is a very very “Progressive & Liberal” not just in politics, like we love our Bernie & Hillary so freaking much, but also about socio-cultural life-style, like we love our LBGT and immigrants so freaking much.
And what underlies Progressive & Liberal social-cultural factors? Well, it is concept like human rights, freedom of information, equality and basically, other subjects about “Caring” about how other people feel and think, and not imposing one’s view on other.
But this “Progressive & Liberalism” of California and Californians is different from most in America. Like one often hear jokes in the rest of America about how Californian lives their lives. The jokes usually goes something like: “What is the new crazy fad in California?”
So You Think I am Exaggerating? Well consider this, “Global Warming” is a scientific proven fact but Trump rejects it & putting in place a cabinet that loves fossil, screw the science & global warming.
But of course, global warming been hitting California very hard, for example, “Forest Fires” and the drying of “Wet-lands.” So a day or two ago, California’s Governor, Jerry Brown, went to a high level global warming conference in San Francisco & basically in sum said:
“Screw Trump & Washington DC, California has resource to fight global warming without Federal Government & we will put California Satellites into orbit to study global warming on our own.”
