This raises serious questions about California and whether it should be expelled from the United States, especially as the Democrats want to put up California Governor Newsom to replace Biden – OMG! Is there any way a state could be removed from the US without its consent? All of the worst politicians, from Pelosi, Feinstein, David Valadao, one of 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach President Donald Trump, Adam Schiff, and McCarty to Newsom, have all been outright anti-American core values. Out of 53 politicians from California, only ten voted against impeaching Trump. At the same time, they support Biden and would vote against impeaching him.
A Constitutional amendment could do this job. But that is not so quick of a process. The Constitution provides that Congress may propose an amendment with a two-thirds majority vote in the House of Representatives and the Senate or by a constitutional convention called for by two-thirds of the State legislatures. Perhaps a Constitutional Convention could muster a two-thirds vote to expel California – from my mouth to God’s ears.
However, there is a hitch. “[N]o State, without its Consent, shall be deprived of its equal Suffrage in the Senate.” If a state is removed from the Union, it is not represented in the Senate. This begs the legal question: If a State is expelled at this point in time, is it still a state for the purposes of the Constitution? I would say NO WAY!
