In an April press release, Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) commented about the potential secession of his home state of California. Rohrabacher had recently returned from a trip to Europe where he met with people including the president of Catalonia. Rohrabacher states that, while he thinks the outcome of a referendum on Catalonia independence from Spain should be accepted, he would not interject his opinion on how people should vote. Interestingly, Rohrabacher lists California among the places where he believes potential secession votes should be respected. Hopefully, many more people in the US government agree. The last time states seceded from the US hundreds of thousands of people died in a US war to conquer the newly-formed Confederate States of America.
