Should Northern California Secede and Become the State of Jefferson?

ReasonTV

Activists in Northern California, near the border with Oregon, are pushing to secede from the Golden State. They say they're fed up with taxes, regulation, and lack of representation. If they get their way, the country's 51st entrant would be called the State of Jefferson.

Secession Movements Intensify

SARTRE
Activist Post

All the attention over the vote by Crimeans to leave the Ukraine makes for a timely review of other separatist factions that are seeking a similar resolution. The list of active separatist movements in Europe is exhaustive.

The immediate impression is that a pervasive discontent, shared by legions of subjects, who want independence and self-determination, will be hard to derail. When European autocratic and aristocrats ruled, the only option was revolution. Today the descendants of the old regimes still wield power under the guise of democratically elected authorities. However, separatist sentiment does not mean the same to every splinter group.

Thousands Sign White House Petition for Alaska to Secede and Join Russia

Melissa Melton
Activist Post

“We the People,” the White House’s online petition website that claims it is “giving all Americans a way to engage their government on the issues that matter to them,” is currently hosting a petition for Alaska to leave the United States and join Russia.



The petition, written by S. V. of Anchorage, simply reads:

State of Jefferson

David West

Nestled in the mountains of Northern California and Southern Oregon is the rugged and mythical State of Jefferson, a region as famous for its beautiful scenery as it is for its desire to secede.

The Next Shot Heard Round the World Will Be in Northern California

Jefferson: our 51st state?
Dave Hodges
Activist Post

As I have highlighted before, there are three distinct stages of revolution. The 15 counties comprising Northern California have entered stage two on the path to revolution, namely, the civil disobedience stage. And two of the counties have entered the civil disobedience phase with a vengeance as their County Board of Supervisors have voted to secede from the state of California. As I read their local community’s media accounts, accompanied by their reasons for secession, I feel like I’m reading an old United States history textbook in which we could substitute the state of South Carolina for the seceding California counties of Siskiyou and Modoc. Emotions are running very high as the residents lifestyles and livelihoods are facing total obliteration.

Another CA County Pushes for Secession

Paul Lawrance
Activist Post

Modoc County of Northern California voted on Tuesday to join neighboring Siskiyou County in the push to secede from the State of California.

The effort to join in the formation of the State of Jefferson passed in a 4-0 vote by the Modoc County Board of Supervisors.[1]

“I put the measure on the agenda because I heard from a number of people in my district that wanted to do such,” Board Chairman Byrne said. “We’re not saying we’re seceding today, we’re saying let’s look into it.”

A spokesperson for the Jefferson Declaration Committee, said the group hopes to have a dozen counties commit to the secession movement before state legislators are directly addressed for approval.

NorCal County Votes to Secede, Create New State "Jefferson"

Proposed map of the new state
Activist Post

Yesterday the the board of supervisors to Siskiyou County in California voted 4-1 to start the secession process from the state citing destruction of rights and unfair representation in Sacramento.

The people of Siskiyou County, the northern-most county in California encompassing the Mt. Shasta region, are tired of having regulations, restriction of rights, and a lack of representation coming from the capital.

"Many proposed laws are unconstitutional and deny us our God-given rights," resident Gabe Garrison said at the meeting. "We need our own state so we can make laws that fit our way of life."

The Record Searchlight newspaper of Redding reports that county officials will seek support of surrounding counties to align with them to form a new state:
Siskiyou County would also invite other neighboring counties in California and southern Oregon to join in the effort to create a new state. 
The secession movement in Northern California proposes that the new state be called "Jefferson" after Thomas Jefferson, the founding father most dedicated to the principles of liberty.

White House Denies Secession Petitions, Cites Civil War Deaths

Activist Post

Director of Public Engagement for the White House, Jon Carson, finally responded to secession petitions on the White House website.

Instead of addressing each of the state petitions, of which there where several that met the 25,000 signature response level, he responded to an anti-secession petition titled "Deport Everyone That Signed A Petition To Withdraw Their State From The United States Of America."

Petitions for states to secede were denied citing that "more than 600,000 Americans died in a long and bloody civil war that vindicated the principle that the Constitution establishes a permanent union between the States."

The claim is that secession appears to not be allowed under the Constitution, and that the result of any such secession attempt would result in many dead Americans.

Is Secession Healthy Decentralization or Divide-and-Rule?

Eric Blair
Activist Post

If the centralization of power is one of the biggest threats to human freedom, wouldn't decentralization be considered the solution? Sounds reasonable, but some say decentralization, or secession, is a divide-and-conquer tactic by the elite. So which is it?

First, a bit of background for those unfamiliar with the ruling class' agenda. All researchers would agree that the "end game" for the ruling class is complete consolidation of power into a one-world government and a one-world currency. In other words, the goal of the elite is to control all nations from a single central office.

However, individual nations are beginning to realize that their participation in larger political and monetary unions has resulted in significantly less autonomy, and secession movements are popping up everywhere in the Western world.

Acknowledging Freedom

Liberty, freedom, and owning oneself are always good things. How humans lost the acknowledgement and community support of their unalienable right to exist on earth, and own themselves is probably lost in history. And yet, there were always people, throughout history, who understood their own value as individuals, and how they had a right to own their lives, while deciding their own destinies, making their own choices, and keeping what they made. They understood nature’s laws; the human right to own themselves, and keep the fruit of their labor. They understood unalienable rights to be a gift from nature that every human can claim just for being born.

Unfortunately most people, early on, were tricked out of this innate gift of owning themselves. Yet, throughout the ages enlightened, and freedom loving humans fought to bring this truth to light, and to have their unalienable rights be acknowledged, and supported by their communities. Some freedom lovers fought for unalienable rights with their pen, some within their legal structure, and some by the sword. They all fought to have human-made governments obey the laws of nature that governed their unalienable rights.

Secession Movement Ready to Take Hold

SARTRE, Contributor

All the buzz in the aftermath of the last election is that secession is in the air. Despite the improbable prospects that the globalists that control the federal government would allow the upstart masses to leave the dominion of Disunion States, it is promising that the country builds critical mass for dissolution. Secession in this day is not your call to arms in the defense of home.

"Honest Abe’s" version of despotism caused many politicians to "Wave the bloody shirt", but today’s crop of brave leaders just asks you to sign a petition to beg for a cordial severance. Just imagine the response from the unprincipled governmental career class. The re-education FEMA facilities are ready to become today’s "Camp Douglas" detention centers.

The League of the South list Ten Reasons For Secession and offers this assessment. "What is behind this increasing support for secession and independence? Perhaps the answer is this: hard reality has finally trumped the myth of a sacred, indivisible union. In other words, many citizens are beginning to see the handwriting on the wall, and the message is alarming."

Notwithstanding, the sentiments of the Old South, the contemporary motivation to reject the arrogant and oppressive dictates of the central government is taking hold for a myriad of reasons.

Don't Fight the System

Activist Post

As of Nov. 15th, 2012, all 50 states had petitions in place to secede from the “Union”. Some of the alternative news media have jumped on the wagon, vying for first place to lead the charge.

Fighting the system to “fix” (or resurrect) it, is the same as fighting over who gets the tenderloin steak off a dead and rotting cow. For many of you I am sure this will be an extremely radical statement. But if that system led us to the morass of greed and evil in which we are today, wouldn't it be better to step aside while it collapses and help lead society toward a better paradigm, based more on caring about others than about squeezing the last penny out of some useless consumer product?

Just what is “the system”?

White House Forced to Confront State Petitions to Secede? (Updated)

Liberty Upended - Anthony Freda

Activist Post

The White House website has been bombarded with petitions that have mushroomed to all 50 states moving to secede. The first petition came in from Louisiana the day after Obama's re-election, and since then a chorus of others have issued their grievances.

Now, under White House rules stated in its "We the People" program, if 25,000 people sign on by December 7th, a response must be issued. Just a few days after submitting, that number has been reached by the petitions from Texas, North Carolina, Louisiana, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, and Tennessee -- with Texas surpassing 100,000.

Here is the current list of state totals for those near or over the threshold:

Decentralization and Secession as a Viable Alternative to the Tyrannical Status Quo

Scott Lazarowitz
Activist Post

Because of the continuing fiascos in Washington; activists on the left and on the right, libertarians and socialists, will have to begin to face the fact that looking to the central planning elites in Washington for answers is futile . . . even counter-productive.

The debt ceiling will be raised for the 75th time since 1962, no real spending cuts will happen, taxes will again be raised, and happy days are here again for the politicians, the life-long bureaucrats, the industrial lobbyists and lawyers, and, especially, the Wall Street fat cats.

 “Well, the next time they will implement their promised reforms,” say those who are still faithful in the central planning bureaucrats. But our chosen representatives do not fulfill their promises, and they never will.  Sooner or later, we are going to have to face the reality that central planning is a promise that can never be kept.

If at First You Don't Secede

Meet the legalization-loving, Iraq-War-hating Californian who's become a guru to the state sovereignty movement. 

Stephanie Mencimer -- Mother Jones 

This February, around 300 conservative activists and candidates gathered at the Atlanta airport Hilton to celebrate the Tenth Amendment, the oft-overlooked constitutional provision that's become the philosophical underpinning of opposition to everything—from bank bailouts to federal gun laws to the new health care bill. Among the speakers were the author of The South Was Right; a man who'd done time for evading taxes while running a gold and silver "bank"; and Roy Moore, the former Alabama Supreme Court justice who lost his robes after refusing to remove a giant Ten Commandments from his courthouse.

The odd man out was Michael Boldin, the founder of the Tenth Amendment Center, a tiny California think tank that cosponsored the event. Unshaven and dressed in jeans, an untucked button-down shirt, and hipster glasses, Boldin stood out from the crowd, which included the obligatory Tea Partier in a tricornered hat. The 37-year-old Wisconsin native told me that the Moore who'd inspired his activism was Michael, not Roy. Boldin describes himself as a "recovering Catholic" and reads Mother Jones. He got into politics because of the invasion of Iraq and has come to believe "that most of what the federal government does, from foreign to domestic policy, is a constitutional violation."
