If we could Amend the Constitution to Prohibit Drinking, and then change it back, why couldn't we amend it to let California leave the union?

All the other states HATE, HATE, HATE, California anyway. Seems to make sense to me.

    Actually, the evidence says red states would NOT SURVIVE without subsidies from blue states such as California

    California pays more in federal taxes than it receives in federal expenditures. This is also true of many other blue states such as Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, and Massachusetts. Meanwhile, red states receive more in federal spending than they pay in federal taxes (with the exception of Texas which pays just a tiny bit more than they receive).

    See https://www.moneytips.com/is-your-state-a-net-paye...

    Sorry, I know the truth sometimes hurts conservatives, but blue states like California & New York have been subsidizing red states for decades. See https://files.taxfoundation.org/legacy/docs/ftsbs-... for historical data

    Technically, but the country needs the tax money that it gets from California. And the food. And the jobs.

    There is no constitutional way for states to actually secede, just break up into smaller states
