I would love to see Western Jersey split from Jersey. We are solidly conservative.

This topic comes up in Texas from time to time. More often then not its a frustration reaction to the incompetency in DC.

It will go nowhere, but I can’t blame them from wanting to dump CA and OR. The same movement that Eastern WA and Eastern Or folks have wanted to do unshackle themselves from the commies on Olympia and Salem

I keep hoping Orange, San Diego, Riverside, and San Bernardino counties will do the same thing!

I think this is a good idea. California should be broken up.

...."The sooner we're done with all you people, the better."

Any guesses as to how long it would take for this new 'state' to turn to Washington for financial aid?

As some who lives in California the people in Sacramento act as if California is the San Francisco/Oakland Bay area to Sacramento.

The rest of the state is nothing to worry about.
That includes representatives from the rest of the state who act like that..

Every once in awhile eastern Washington, northern Idaho and western Montana want to secede and join together to create a new state. Sadly, it never goes anywhere beyond the ‘wouldn’t it be nice if we did this’ stage.

Very cool. Kali is too big. It takes from all areas to feed the four major cities. It like New York State. All those people to feed New York City. Imagine if NYC had to pay for itself.

Is this serious or merely mental masturbation?

We fighting or fantasizing?

If this is real, let’s do it. I’m in.

Politically, it would be MUCH easier to get each state to allocate electoral vote by Congressional district, as Maine and Nebraska do it. We’d lose a few electoral votes in the red states, but we’d pick up a LOT of votes in the red areas of blue states. Channeling anger into something that is politically possible, rather than pie-in-the-sky would be much more productive.

The Chronicle likes to stir the pot every so often. It enables them to paint us as bitter folk clinging to our guns and bibles so that no one feels guilty about regulating us to death.

The movement was a serious one back in pre-WWII. Then Stan Statham had an advisory vote taken on the prospect of state division back in the 1990s. It was determined then that, as this area is so poor, it receives far more tax benefit than it pays out. The area has very little industry and very little tax base. In actuality, we would end up being one of the most impoverished states in the union. Also, we have several bastions of wealthy leftist, socialist, eco-weird philosophy (Ashland, Arcata, and Mt. Shasta) within the boundaries. They would likely be elevated in standing due to their wealth and make life a living hell for the rest of us.

This is when the State of Jefferson became a state of mind - conservative frontier mindset - individual rights protected from the majority, the protection of the integrity of property rights limited government, local control, natural resource based economy and traditional values.
