CBS Sacramento reports that several counties of California have taken the first steps in legally declaring independence from the rest of the state. Found of the movement Robert Paul Preston says:
“Well, it’s been ungovernable for a long time. High taxes, education, you name it, and we’re rated around 48th or 50th from a business climate and standpoint in California.”
The state of New California would be made up of the state’s rural areas and abandon the coastal urban counties that currently run political roughshod over the rest of Californians. Preston continues:
“There’s something wrong when you have a rural county such as this one, and you go down to Orange County which is mostly urban, and it has the same set of problems, and it happens because of how the state is being governed and taxed,”
“Yes. We have to demonstrate that we can govern ourselves before we are allowed to govern,” Found Tom Reed says.
The New State of California is following in the footsteps of West Virginia’s separation movement by working within the legislative system constitutionally. Article 4, Section 3 of the U.S. Constitution gives separation rights to citizens within a state to break away and form their own statehood.
This would be very beneficial to those who have been crushed by progressive economic regulation and unfair taxation. It would also give them the freedom to cooperate with the Federal Government when enforcing immigration laws. Huge news.
