Right.  It only hints at the answer here:

This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding.

Oh, wait . . .

That's not a hint, that very clear guidance.

Roll Eyes
It's very clear guidance except it doesn't mention regulations or regulators at all.

Of course I know the Constitution is the Supreme Law, I've said it over and over. I've also said that the Supreme Law says only Congress can make laws.

Bad Laws Drive Business Out

All laws coming out of Sacramento are specifically designed for two things:

1) Make [State] government more powerful.

2) Make California a hostile climate for business.

On these fronts, they are very effective! 

Idiot Lawmakers and regulators recently even tried to tax cellphone texts, but pushback from voters made them drop the plan just this week.

We Californians corral our idiots in the State Capitol building.

Shhhhhhh....let's keep that under our hats!  Moonbeam is the prima doofus.   Smiley

Yesterday, Gavin Newsom was sworn in as California's new governor.

Just hours after taking the oath of office, Newsom announced plans for a major expansion of Medi-Cal to cover young immigrants in the U.S. illegally and will require consumers in the state to carry health insurance, which of course violates the State constitution.  The Supreme Court will not object.  They are as crooked as the governor!!   Grin    Grin    Grin

Newsom will attempt to turn California into another Venezuela. We'll do what we can to stop him, but without the Court's help....

The prognosis is not good...  Embarrassed

Won't ever happen, Jeff.  California has tried secession many times - TWENTY SIX times since 1850, if im not mistaken.

  The fact is, California is simply too great an asset to the US.  The US would instantly become much weaker if California were cut loose. Congress would never approve secession. 

HOWEVER, they *might* allow California split into two (or more) smaller states. This way, the US doesn't lose any GDP advantages from the new State(s).

In a related story, Yesterday the President visited California and had a powerful message for the California governor Moonbeam Brown:

"[Moonbeam] Brown has done a very poor job at running California..." He then showed off some some tremendous designs for the border wall.  "We have to have it. It will be 99.5% successful." said Trump.


Republicans would never go with splitting California because of all the new Democrat Senators it would create

Millions on Californians have left since 2013 to escape uber-high taxes in the state.

But Governor Gavin Newsom thinks taxes are not high enough.

So he's proposing a new statewide Water Tax - a tax designed to hurt anyone who uses water.

Former governor, "Moonbeam" Brown tried this idiotic tax last year, but it failed to garner enough support in the legislature.

Dems are slow learners.

The Association of California Water Agencies, a group that represents more than 400 water suppliers across the state, opposed Newsom's proposed water tax.

Orange County Republican Travis Allen, who ran against Newsom in 2018, blasted the new Tax:

"In one of his first official acts @GavinNewsom wants to TAX YOUR WATER.   There is no limit to what @TheDemocrats will tax or excuses they'll make to TAKE YOUR MONEY."

The Democrats won't rest until the total destruction of California is complete.   Good.   Then we can ditch socialism and start anew.

And the people running away from California and the shit hole they created are moving to their neighbors and voting for the same thing they did in California.  Nevada is now blue and Arizona is almost there.  They just elected a socialist Senator

Actually the proposed split I saw looks likely to create two libertarian Senators... Smiley Neither branch of the TwoParties wants that. Shocked

Second most likely is two newly created Republican Senators, which is why the solidly One Party Democratic government of California opposes the breakup and is likely to prevent it from happening.

It turns out socialist programs aren't as popular as is claimed, at least not if you start talking about taxes to pay for them anyway-

The key is this:

"the Cato 2018 Paid Leave Survey finds that at the national level, Americans are not supportive of establishing a 6-month paid leave program. "

Gavin Newsom couldn't care less about what the rest of the country thinks. He knows that once California goes full-socialist, the rest of the country will eventually follow suit.

California demotard voters will usually go along with whatever Newsom proposes. 

Democrats won't rest until the total destruction of California is complete.

That's too bad. I say pay them for nothing as long as it takes for people to realise that's all they do.

Humans... well...

This is gonna take a while.

I'll wait.
  

This moral relativism of yours is exactly what lets government take this freedom, then that freedom, until we have lost them all.
