One notably bizarre, disorganized push to turn California into its own country is dead—at least for now. Its leader, Louis J. Marinelli, announced that he is canceling the petition and pulling up stakes. While he said he believed in the struggle for California’s independence “from the United States so we could build the kind of country that reflects our progressive values,” he has decided on a new path.
He’s decided he’d rather live in Russia, which is not exactly famous for its progressiveness.
But very much the picture of what ‘progressives’ want for America. Funny how reality always tells the truth in the end.
