The Siskiyou County Board of Supervisors voted 4-1 Tuesday to secede from California and to form a new state that would be called “Jefferson.” This is totally a thing that is going to happen, just like “Northern Colorado,” because Freedom and also tyrannical liberal elites in Sacramento and SoCal, and once they get some other counties in NorCal and Oregon to join them, there will be a Liberty Jubilee and maybe a hoedown, too. The Eureka Times-Standard reports,
More than 100 people packed the supervisors’ chambers Tuesday for the discussion on whether the county should issue a declaration that it wants to secede from the state. Nearly all those in attendance appeared to be for the move and about a dozen spoke in support of it.
“Many proposed laws are unconstitutional and deny us our God-given rights,” said Gabe Garrison of Happy Camp. “We need our own state so we can make laws that fit our way of life.”
We would suggest that the first item on the agenda be a name change for that town, amirite?
Another woman at the meeting, Kayla Brown, told the paper her completely realistic dreams:
Kayla Brown, a mother in her early 20s … said she didn’t want to raise her child in California.
“The state of Jefferson is the place I want to raise my son,” she said.
Yes, and we wish we could raise our son Bilbo in Middle Earth, but we are not drawing up a charter for the Shire Planning and Zoning Commission.
The mostly Republican county feels it is not adequately represented in Sacramento, because of “issues pertaining to water rights and the rural fire prevention fee.” Once the state government agrees to let the counties succeed and Congress says, “OK, sure, whatever,” the new state would undoubtedly become a utopia, with a population of 44,000, six towns with over 1000 people each, and a fairly decent tourist industry, which should be enough to support the state government of Galt’s Gulch. It would have two votes in the U.S. Senate, just like the 38 million people in the rest of California.
But they’d all be happy in their new paradise, at least until the decent freedom-loving citizens of Weed and Dunsmuir get tired of being dictated to by those tyrants in Yreka, and vote to form the new state of Baja Siskiyou.
