As the consequences of losing control of the federal government seeps into their delusional sense of entitlement, the useful idiots of the Left and their paymasters scamper to find a method to regain power. A concept which is gaining acceptance in Commiefornia is the “Nation of Pacifica.” Given the incompatibility between the Trump Nation “deplorables” and the intolerant collectivists of Leftist state worshipers, the end game is rapidly approaching, a final conflict that easily could erupt in a real civil war. Leave it to the “beautiful people” — their fantasia screenplay scripts a peaceful dissolution of the disjointed union. A sample of their dialectic:
“Because the citizens of the ‘red states’ believe that their religious beliefs must be imposed by force of law and strongly object to the beliefs and lifestyles of the citizens of the ‘blue states,’ it is likely that they will be happy to be rid of those that they view as ‘Satanically evil.’ Once the Nation of Pacifica has been founded, the remaining United States can ban the import of the Hollywood movies, television shows, rock, hip hop, and R&B music, science and technology, and other secular influences they so strongly object to.”
How ironic that self-proclaimed “progressives” are so eager to adopt secession, something that even John C. Calhoun was reluctant to advocate prior to the War of Northern Aggression. The right of secession, which, since the establishment of the government under the Constitution, had been held from time to time in the North as well as in the South as a theoretical possibility, was reserved by Calhoun’s Exposition as a last resort.
Calhoun warned: “The United States were something more than, and different from, a simple league of states, but should never become a centralized democracy ruled by absolute majorities — the ‘worst possible form,’ ‘a consolidated government swayed by the will of an absolute majority.’ Government by majority rule at all levels meant abandonment of all constitutional guarantees. The right of a state to judge, as a last resort, constitutional limits imposed on the federal government should be defended at all costs; otherwise the United States would be destroyed, becoming first a full-grown modern State and then an executive dictatorship.”
This comparison illustrates that the Left Coast Liberals have little reverence for constitutional restraints. If they cannot command supremacy over the federal government, they want out.
All the attention given to the “Calexit” movement has an underlying motivation. Conor Friedersdorf notes in The Los Angeles Times: “The main benefit of a California exit would be psychic. There is a subset of people here, mostly from the privileged classes, who feel sullied by their political affiliation with Red America. Secession would boost their sense of personal virtue.”
This is an important point that hits on a major difference in the clash of cultures that has been destroying America for decades. The self-absorbed extreme left elitism that has usurped the rugged individualism of the pioneer era has cleansed independent and common sense thinking. The emergence of a unified and intolerant “politically correct” communist party line is illustrated vividly by the obliteration of free speech not only on college campuses, but more importantly in personal interaction between unacquainted individuals.
