A group of Californians want to begin a secession effort. Their first step is to put a referendum on the California ballot to delete the bit that proclaims California is inseparable from the United States.
If they go forward, President Trump should declare them in rebellion, invade, and put them under reconstruction. He could then get rid of California’s Congressional delegation and name a Governor-General of the federal territory.
Not a bad idea. We keep California and they lose their votes in Congress and the Electoral College. Sounds like a winner to me.
Of course, truth be told, I am not opposed to states deciding to go their own way. I just know that is not what would happen.
