“The main plank of this campaign is secession from the United States. I know people say this or that is no panacea, but Ive been thinking about this one for a while. Secession is a panacea. It would add billions to the California budget without raising taxes, and it would get those red state bible-thumpers off our ass.”
A Vote for Shapiro is a Vote for Secession

The solution to California’s problems

Secession Now!
Reasons to secede from the United States:
M abortions for everyone.
M instead of spending $500 from the average California taxpayer on virginity classes in Texas, spend it on something fun in California.
M bring our soldiers back from Iraq so they can defend California from the hegemonic United States military.
M no Christian Taliban in Washington telling us how bad we are.
M California universal medical insurance gives our businesses an advantage over businesses in other states.
M develop an energy policy that involves more than drilling in Alaska.
M a legalized California marijuana industry provides high quality product to the world.
M marriage for gays only. Straight couples have the same legal rights if they register, but no kissing in public.
M eminent domain only to be used to take WalMart buildings for low cost housing and abortion clinics.
M support for scientists who actually experiment and find out stuff.
M no tax breaks for children, churches or SUV’s.
M oil company and church tax revenues will provide free college educations for all Californians.
M friendly relations with Cuba and Venezuela provide Californians with good cigars, a safe oil supply, and Carribean vacations.
M California Supreme Court justices Angela Davis and Jon Stewart.
M new speed limit, 180 miles per hour.
What do we need them for?
