Why would the federal government let you leave?

Most red state people would love to see us out of the Union, so that could help the cause.

We need to try to either get rid of the electoral college or Calexit. What we have now is not democracy.

I support the California protests because our vote doesn’t count as much in California. In Wisconsin they get one electoral vote for every 577,000 people, but in California we get one vote for every 711,636 people. So protesting is the only way we can express ourselves. Small states get to impose their will on us. It sucks. [source]
