Most Americans know that the once-Golden State is the left’s poster child. The worst of the worst liberal policies are implemented in California, often to beta-test before forcing them on the rest of us. Gavin Newsom’s California has outlawed gas-burning cars, put criminals back on the streets, and is planning on rewarding black citizens with hundreds of thousands of dollars in reparations (even though California was never a slavery state).
The result has been total chaos. Illegal immigrants trample communities. Crime has destroyed small businesses. And people are fleeing to red states at a record pace. But one county has said, “Enough is enough.” And they took unprecedented steps to save their homes.
From Fox News:
Residents of San Bernardino County, California, have voted to research the possibility of secession from the state.
Voters approved a ballot measure directing officials to look into the legal realities of separating from California to establish a new state…
The exploration of secession is a result of discomfort among the county’s diverse population with a rapidly growing homelessness problem, perceived overtaxation and an inability to control crime.
San Bernardino, the scene of a terrible attack in 2015, is looking for options to leave failing California behind. Voters approved a measure to research how they can break from California and form their own state.
Because the county is so close to Los Angeles, it is getting hit with waves of crime and homelessness. Meanwhile, California’s abusive, socialist taxation is driving up the cost of living for most residents.
Are we at all surprised that residents are looking for a way out? Most just up and move, preferring to get as far away from California as possible. But this county seems to have an alternative plan: just move the county out of the state.
There are many hurdles in seceding from a state. And it would require support from the state’s legislature and Congress. Those might seem insurmountable. But that doesn’t mean folks should try.
A push to secede from California could be a wake-up call for the rest of the state. More counties could join together and launch a movement not even Congress can ignore. At the very least, this can terrify the do-nothing socialists in California’s legislature. They will either wise up or lose millions of voters.
- San Bernardino, CA voted to look into the possibility of seceding from the state.
- The county is suffering from high taxes, rampant crime, and unchecked homelessness.
- Under Democrat leadership, California is suffering from these problems, statewide.
