Californian progressives tempted to secede warned they'd be depriving US of state's 'laid-back tolerance'

Despite a recent poll that showed a sharp rise in interest among Californians in seceding from the United States, most residents would like the state to remain just that — a state. Still, the movement spearheaded by Yes California is a real thing, and California Secretary of State Alex Padilla last week cleared the way for petitioners to begin collecting the signatures needed to put the initiative on the ballot.

It might be too early to start popping popcorn, but it looks as though the majority of Californians will be sitting back and watching as progressives argue whether the state would be better off as a sovereign country.

Yes California chairman Marcus Ruiz Evans maintains that, among other things, California is “more liberal, more educated and wealthier than most every other state.” In an opinion piece in the Los Angeles Times this weekend, though, Conor Friedersdorf argued that secession would leave California living next door to a country no longer anchored by California’s “laid-back tolerance and easygoing diversity.” Who wants that nightmare just across the border?

Friedersdorf did note that secession would deprive the U.S. of all those Democrat voters, though he considered it a downside.
