Rider Likes CalExit
Richard Rider likes the idea of CalExit. That's the progressive effort to have California secede from the country. He has some good reasons. I like the idea, too, and have written elsewhere it's long past time for the rest of the country to dump California. America doesn't need this state dragging the rest of the country down.
I am a bit apprehensive, though, as I'd seriously consider leaving the state if it came to pass. I don't like living in a progressive state. I'd hate living in a progressive country. Rider says he and his family would move, too, but they're in a better position to pull up stakes and move than we are.
