Skip to comments.Siskiyou County votes to pursue secession from California
Posted on 09/04/2013 4:51:25 PM PDT by Baynative
Fed up by Sacramento's regulations and Southern California's political sway, residents in one rural Northern California county are taking steps to leave the state.
The Siskiyou County Board of Supervisors voted, 4-1, on Tuesday to pursue seceding from California, the Redding Record Searchlight reported. Proponents say Siskiyou should form a new state -- called Jefferson -- with other counties in Northern California and Southern Oregon they believe share similar interests.

"Many proposed laws are unconstitutional and deny us our God-given rights," said Happy Camp resident Gabe Garrison. "We need our own state so we can make laws that fit our way of life."
"The state of Jefferson is the place I want to raise my son," Kayla Brown said.
Resident complaints include a lack of representation in Sacramento and insufficient attention to major issues for the county, such as water rights and a rural fire prevention fee, the Searchlight reported.
This could tempt me to move back to California and be closer to my grand kids. Of course, that is if Siskiyou isn’t part of California anymore.
If at first you don’t secede, try again.
Quit sending sales tax proceeds to Sacramento
Be sure to include Coos and Curry (the two most southern Oregon coastal counties). (I was raised in Coos County).
Self-determination is the right of every American. We fought the Revolution for EXACTLY THIS.
If they do I would love to move up there and get away from the Democrat’s Rat Hole State they created. My fear is that liberals will try to move in and take over. They are like Rats, they dump their turd and once they screwed that up they move on to another place.
I would like to see a Conservative only town =)
I think our states are too big. There are a lot of areas in the U.S. that can easily become its own state. Up state NY is another example.
As a land owner of Tehama County [just south of Siskiyou] ... count me in.
The authoritarian Bolsheviks that run Sacramento and Washington D.C., a.k.a Mordor on the Potomac, however, would gladly use the military to kill every last secessionist in this land before Jefferson State or any new State became a reality. It will finally mean all the Makers can get a legal divorce from the Takers and that is RASISM!
Succession = RACISM! That is heresy, the worst sin, the lowest crime punishable by death.
