Time to reduce the ability for you to have any influence on what we as CA do.

Those of us in Texas would agree. We’d also like the larger nation to have less influence on our state.

So I’m hoping you can agree that what we need is a consitutional convention that significantly reduces the federal government in favor of states rights.

It’s about time the liberals came on board with that. We’ve been talking about it since FDR. But we don’t need a constitutional convention, although we’ve already signalled participation. We have the 10th Amendment, if somebody would have the cojones to remember that.

Regardless CA (the fifth largest economy in the world) will not bow to any of the craziness that the Donald or the current Republican congress is creating.

TX is the ninth largest economy in the world, IIRC (maybe 11th), and based on trends, should overtake CA in a few decades, last time I checked the data. We don’t see the craziness as one party over another, though. It doesn’t matter who is running Washington, politicians only think they have accomplished anything if they have taken away more states rights.

Bottom line, you may want to become a little more rationale because the “authoritarian” positions you’re taking aren’t going to turn out well for you.

I am not sure what that means. Since Trump took office, our economy is markedly LESS authoritarian than before, due to deregulation by executive order.

The largest economies in the US are all democratic.

Every state in the country is democratic. Not sure what your point is.
