In a modern time revolution, the people of the United States have voted to boot Washington DC from the country.
All federal politicians are required to report in to the processing office to be banished to San Francisco for the period of ten years, after which they may go before a parole hearing to see if they have recovered any sense of wisdom or ethics. If they have they may apply to be reinstated as a citizen.
San Francisco has been chosen as a proper holding area because it can be isolated by a blockade of the bridges that connect it to the homeland. Also because it is currently populated by many whom the mainstream US citizen wants to ban from the US anyway.
A new government will be formed, based on the long forgotten constitution. Where such a thing as individual rights will be respected. The interim government has many goals, eliminate the IRS, bring our troops home from all around the world, drill for lots of oil, and tell the tree hugging environmentalists to get a life or be banished with the rest of the spineless nutcases .
