New California declares "independence" from rest of state

SACRAMENTO -- 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. CBS Sacramento reports they don't want to leave the United States, just California.

"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," said founder Robert Paul Preston.

The state of New California would incorporate most of the state's rural counties, leaving the urban coastal counties to the current state of 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," Preston said.

New CA will add 2 - senators (probably republican) and that should bode very well for the Trump administration.

There has been talk for years about taking the upper part of CA and the lower part of Oregon and create a State called Jefferson. At least I think that is what I read. You'll have to look it up.

It was never meant to be one state

That's interesting. Didn't know. I feel it is a very good idea. Also Virginia should divide. North VA and South VA. Same situation as California.

Maryland should do it get rid of that bunch on the western shore

Wait a minute. Yes the Eastern shore has it's problems just like the rest of Maryland. For instance Baltimore - believe the murder capitol of the world. PG county is the worse. Northern Maryland uses taxpayers money and gives very little to eastern shore. Stop eating Purdue chicken - start your own farms. Stop using our beaches - go-to New Jersey. This would make the Eastern Shore a better place without you.
