Volokh Conspiracy . . . "Ever since November 8th, my wife has been semi-seriously advocating the idea of “Pacifica” a new nation composed of CA, OR, WA, HI, and parts of NV. . . . On Christmas Day, she was surprised and pleased to find this in her stocking:
"Pacifica" (to the tune of “America, the Beautiful”)
Let’s break away, the whole West Coast*Pacific Coast Highway, past Malibu and Muscle Beach
To flee from you-know-who.
We’ll take the states we love the most
We’ll take Las Vegas, too!
Pacifica! Pacifica! A land that’s (mostly) free!
We’ll smoke some weed, get gay-marr-ied
And save de-moc-ra-cy!
The Union was a grand ideal
A pure and righteous thing
But now we need to break the seal —
A conscious un-coup-ling!
America! America! It’s time to call it quits.
But don’t you cry, it’s not goodbye —
We’re friends with benefits!
The Constitution, we adored —
But now it doth resemble more
A suicidal pact!
America! Pacifica! We’re codependent, see?
We need some “me-time” for ourselves —
And you need therapy!
From San Diego to San Juan
And all the wine country,
With Google and with Amazon,
We’ll do just fine, you’ll see!
Pacifica! Pacifica! A new road we have found.
You’ll find us on the PCH*
Always — with — the — top — down
