    A country not committed to the freedom of all men is trash. Those not committed to the cause of freedom are enemies and should be seen as such.

    I vote to oust Rhode Island. That way we could keep the USA the same size.

    They were the first of the thirteen colonies to declare independence from British rule. Maybe they'd be up for claiming independence from US rule.

    Lets see here the tech giants led to jobs, tax revenue, development, economic growth, helping of local businesses, manufacturing... Lets see if California was voted out of the union, the US just lost all of that. And what makes you think that all those tech companies would say "oh naa we gotta stay with the US of A"?

    Again, tech giants do not just stay inside a states borders nor does the technology they develop. Furthermore, tech giants have a tendency to move their headquarters from time to time like any other large business.

    Well... my country left me, I never left the country.

    I want to live in freedom - sadly, Amerikans want nothing to do with freedom. They've been indoctrinated to accept authoritarian, lawless government - they think as long as they are voting for it, it's okay... well, some of us are no okay with living under authoritarian rule.

    America fought a revolution for liberty over much less than is happening today.

    No, most of us could live just fine with chopping America down to its proper constitutional size

    And New York?? Good grief, that is the global seat for almost all that is vile and corrupt in the world... the U.N., the Federal Reserve, the fiat currency market, et al... we need to turn the place into a real life "Escape From New York - seal 'em off, and don't let 'em out.
    So the financial capital of the world and a state that represents one of the largest economies in the world...

    Yeaaaa... Why would they move? Google and many other tech giants have been in San Fran since pretty much their founding..
