Although the Oregon petition was soon after withdrawn, and the chances of California seceding are slim, due to the changes that would have to be made to the Constitution, the idea of exiting the Union has been gaining popularity on social media, and many are hoping it will spark genuine discussion on the matter.
The Cascadia Independence Movement has long explored the idea of the entire Pacific Northwest, along with western Canada and a portion of Alaska, seceding from the United States and Canada to create a new nation called Cascadia. Now the Yes California Independence Campaign, which is currently leading the way, aims to hold a referendum in 2018 that would bring California closer to becoming an independent country, and there has been talk of collaboration.
Ultimately though, the choice comes down to the majority, and in all fairness, relevant points can be made for both sides of the debate. Considering the popularity of the idea of secession is on the rise, it has become a valid topic for citizens to discuss. Tell us your thoughts on our Facebook page.
