fwd it to atheist cali group!?
say wird!

California was an independent nation for all of three whole weeks, from June to July, in 1846 - part of the US war against Mexico. Their flag displayed (as it does today) a Grizzly Bear, hence the nickname Bear Flag Republic.

In terms of regional exceptionalism, I think the US Southeast is more distinct as a separate culture, than California.  

Also, California is tied to both the Southwest and the Northwest as a culture.  The entire US West Coast seems to me, fairly connected.  Where I live in WA State, Portland OR area, there are so many people from California, or who spend time in California, it doesn't seem like a separate region.

Looking at election maps, blue/red splits, the coasts seem to share traits, with the Southeast and middle being different.  I think we'll hear more about Southern (Old confederacy) exceptionalism than about California/West Coast exceptionalism, in the foreseeable future.

So glad I moved back to California. I think I've finally found my people.
