78. Good luck maintaining those roads without federal transportation money.
And when those pesky Chinese warships show up off the coast, who ya gonna call? China Busters!? Do you think for a minute that in its heavy-handed way, the US wouldn't lay waste to this place without regard to "collateral damage" to prevent China from establishing a forward base here?

How long before Mexico notices that the Stars and Stripes no longer waves over California? Do we have enough of a military machine of our own here to fend off a hostile takeover? I wonder what we'd call this place then... Calexico? Mexicali? (Surely that's where the new national capital would be) Or maybe Aztlan? Alta California?

And when "them that gots" decide to take their money and move east so as to as to have their asses protected by the flag, what then?

Shortsigthed at best, suicidal at worst.
