California has been lost in its own version of reality, everything from the Marijuana laws to Firearm laws and the most recent, ammo laws. In what seems more of a Orwellian society of people who have lost their collective minds, it seems some have had enough and have decided to create their own “state” and have called it, for the time being, “The New California”.
SACRAMENTO — With the reading of their own version of a Declaration of Independence, founders of the state of New Californiatook the first steps to what they hope will eventually lead to statehood, CBS Sacramento reported.
“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 businessclimate and standpoint in California. 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.” ~ Founder Robert Paul Preston
Now before you start thinking this is just some guy and this is not an actual “movement”, we will cover the counties that have signed on to be part of the New California.
They do not want to be their own Nation, they do not want to leave the United States, they are just creating a New California that will be it’s own state within the United States lower 48.
They are following the law and are citing Article 4, section 3 of the U.S. Constitution that not only protects them but also enables the legal creation of a new state, as was the path of West Virginia.
From the New California State website: Two more counties joined the effort to create the New California State. At the New California State County Representative meeting held in Marysville, CA Riverside and Sacramento counties were certified by the representatives to join the ever increasing number of counties wanting to join the movement to create the 51st state in the Union. With the addition of Riverside and Sacramento counties the total number of counties that are now certified is 17. According to members of the New California County Representatives there are additional counties that will be brought in before the end of December 2017.
Additional counties in include a long list of areas that many people would find surprising who want to start a new state. Here is the list of counties awaiting certification: Los Angeles, Santa Cruz, San Joaquin, San Diego, Orange, Glenn, Tulare, San Benito, Calaveras, Amador, Tuolumne, Mariposa and Santa Barbara. The list represents a back log of counties who have county chairs and organizing committees who meet the standards for certification. “It’s just a matter of getting the time to bring them aboard. It’s a nice problem to have” stated one of the representatives. Our goal is to be at 40 ratified counties by January 1, 2018.
Their Executive Summarystates, New California is a new state in development exercising it’s Constitutional Right to form from the State of California. The process to form New California is authorized and codified in Article 4 Section 3 of the United States Constitution.
If the group focuses on leaving California because of the corruption within the states government, the sanctuary cities, flood of illegal immigrants and crime, then I am all for it.
