New California: breakaway state declares independence from California

We, therefore, the Representatives of the Counties of New California, appeal to the California Legislature and the Federal Congress to pass resolutions to create the State of New California.

Preston explained that this strong wording "doesn't mean there's going to be some sort of revolution in the streets".

Preston and Reed posted on their Facebook campaign page that the forgotten men and women of rural California live "under a tyrannical form of government that does not follow the California and United States Constitutions".

The putative state has issued a declaration of independence which says it wants to create a "free, sovereign and independent state of New California due to the past and current government of California having failed". In August, the "Calexit" movement pushed for a 2018 ballot initiative to break the state away from the rest of America. "We will be working as the Constitution says".

The group is still calling on other counties to add their names to the new state, so there is still a chance its proposed area could grow. It would need to be approved by the state legislature before being submitted to the Congress.

The most recent attempt to split the state was in 2016. Today, however, Brown's looney leftism is considered mainstream. A map on the movement's website (which has the theme: A more ideal union) shows the proposed "new" state as including most of California's counties, except those along the coast from Sonoma County south to Los Angeles - or basically all the places with big money. With no hope of winning anyway, as is the present situation, the Republican Party in these areas puts forth very little effort.

In this map released by New California, the proposed New California is highlighted in blue.

"New California" would govern itself and consist mainly of rural counties, CBS News reported. Democrats have discovered "gold" in California (large influxes of immigrants who will vote for Democrats by strong majorities), and they are unlikely to allow this situation to change without a fight.
