New California Declares Independence From Rest Of State
SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — With the reading of their own version of a Declaration of Independence, founders of the state of New California took
the first steps to what they hope will eventually lead to statehood. To be clear, they don’t want to leave the United States, just
"Founders of "New California" declare independence from the Golden State"
"New California declares "independence" from rest of state"
"A right of the people to seek a constitutional remedy." It's been ungovernable for a long time, taxes, education..." "New California wants to do
things by the book... similar to West Virginia."
Instead of leaving the US, this new proposed part of California would incorporate parts of the rural areas minus the coastal high population zones.
First off, no one posted this yet? I assume due to that it's still breaking, and that the state has a bad reputation around here, however this just
might be news to states with issues, including the one mentioned, on how they may be able work with the concerns.
In there past there has been talk of the State of Jefferson, which includes the northern part of the state and Southern Oregon, breaking from the
state. Now they have gone and done this apparently encompassing more of the state than the State of Jefferson. With that I am hardly surprised,
being that other states deal with these similar issues as well. Wonder if this will mean more of a go ahead for them. As well as looking for more on
what this means for the state and elsewhere.
The article concludes that it will take 10 to 18 months before the Reps will be ready to engage with the state's legislature. What does it mean for
the rest of the US-ie food, import, etc. wise? What will the impact be, if any, on the newly legal Recreational Marijuana? Stay tuned, since it's
early in it's inception, going to be looking more into sharing the information of it. Thoughts(minus Mud Pitting the thread) and additional data

Sounds almost like a Micronation initiative, which are actually
pretty cool and the worlds needs more of them. Giant monolithic governments are too
arbitrary and will always turn to absolute corrupt power where the bigger the badder is to be expected.
It won't happen.
Someone drew up a map to take the population centers and make them a new state. As a resident of California since '83 today is the first I've heard
This is gerrymandering at it's worst.
I know for decades north Ca has always wanted to separate from south Ca, about around Fresno. It is common knowledge the north supports the south with
little return, so it makes sense they want to split up.
I will never understand these liberals. Even Californians don't want to be in California. They have been leaving in droves and moving to Texas. Texas
calls it "getting Californicated". The problem is that these liberals leave California, run by liberals for liberals, because it is a failure and move
to Texas because it is a success. That would almost be acceptable except for the fact that once they arrive in Texas they immediately try to influence
local government to adopt a more liberal California approach to running the state. smh
Liberals - your failed policies turned California into a giant time-sucking abyss for which there is no cure. Now you flee the state you destroyed so
you can continue your failed policies and destroy Texas too. If you want to remain liberal and are looking for a new home, may I suggest Chicago? They
love you guys...One big happy self destructing family.
Sounds like more crap made up by some farm boy,a hater type that makes posts like"Calif will slip into ocean" more uninformed crap,happen to live
here,places in the south that still have outhouses as you were
This outta get the Republicans excited. It's predominantly the conservative part of Cali.... pushed by a conservative group. It'll take maybe what,
10 electoral college points from Cali's overall electoral points? It's a longshot but if they make it through the States legislative processes and
legally get their efforts through, more power to them:
With all of that said, it's unlikely that New California will ever come into existence. At least for now. In order to obtain statehood, Preston's
group will need approval from the California legislature. It will also need a thumbs up and green signal from the Congress — which is unlikely. Then
there's the lengthy and exhausting process of dividing resources and assets among the split states. And finally, the group will need a governor
appointed by the president of the United States. In other words, it's no easy task.
