Residents of a northern California county on Tuesday voted in favor of a measure that will now force local officials to consider a plan to secede from the state and form a new entity named Jefferson.
That decision — one of three related matters being considered by voters across the Golden State on Tuesday this week — passed by 55.74 percent in Tehama County, with nearly 1,000 more ballots cast towards seceding from California compared to staying.
Elsewhere in the state, however, secessionist efforts in northern California largely failed this week when voters in two of three counties where the issue was up for debate voted against formally beginning the process to separate and start a new state.
Voters in Del Norte County voted Tuesday to reject a secessionist measure on ballots there that would have required local officials to begin examining the prospect of separating from California and forming a new state with the residents of other nearby counties. The measure was rejected by 59 percent.
In Tehama County, however, voters there cast their ballots in favor of an identical measure, passing the initiative by nearly 56 percent. Should the decision still stand after the final votes are tallied, then the Tehama County Board of Supervisors will have to adopt a Declaration of Support — purely an advisory measure — concerning the creation of a proposed State of Jefferson and separation from California.
Well said Pamela, thank you !!
Is there any other option that can guarantee success? Like Islam, they were smart and decided to take America and have control of the most powerful military and weapons on earth. Now they are able to destroy every other of their enemies overnight in control of the USA. They went directly at a throat and seem to have won.
You make some good points Archie but I have hope because I have heard there are groups called "The Cowboys" or "White Hats" that are disassembling their control structure as we speak.
Otherwise I think we would all be done by now. God bless them for their efforts.
Who are the Cowboys or White Hats? I'd love to know more about them as well.
I would be glad to tell you.
I don't think Kalifornicate needs to be split up. We should give it back to Mexico and let them deal with the fruits and nuts.
I have seen a plan that would break up California into 6 states. That would give us 55. However we have recently seen similar efforts to divide Colorado & Maryland into two each. That could make the total 57 (where have we heard that number before) then there is the matter of Texas being able to subdivide into 5 states, which would give us a total of 61 states. Assuming that all these efforts were successful, what would congress look like? Especially the senate that would increase by 22 new members. The house is a little more problematic because while it would grow, some delegations would shrink to make room for some of the new districts. However for real fun think of what the Elector College would look like.
