Forums - Politics Discussion - New California has filed to become the "51st" US state

I am still waiting for Puerto Rico to become the 51st state. 

 

SACRAMENTO -- With the reading of their own version of a Declaration of Independence, founders of the state of New California took the first steps to what they hope will eventually lead to statehood. CBS Sacramento reports they don't want to leave the United States, just California.

"Well, it's been ungovernable for a long time. High taxes, education, you name it, and we're rated around 48th or 50th from a business climate and standpoint in California," said founder Robert Paul Preston.

The state of New California would incorporate most of the state's rural counties, leaving the urban coastal counties to the current state of California.

"There's something wrong when you have a rural county such as this one, and you go down to Orange County which is mostly urban, and it has the same set of problems, and it happens because of how the state is being governed and taxed," Preston said.

I'll believe it when it actually happens. It will be interesting if it does though. Trump would likely go along with it just because it would upset democrats.



Puerto Rico become a state with its 70 Billion dollar and growing debt? lol

Even though i dont like Trump it's a good thing he won for this reason and he should take action. Either PR stays a colony that can fix their crisis or let them become independent.



Doesn't California have to give permission to allow a part of them to just break away? I don't see Trump stopping this nor Congress but California might want to have a word.

They should just move to Texas, it's pretty much what they sound like they want and I imagine they'd like it. Leave California to the yuppies! :D

This is silly, btw.



We need less borders, not more.

If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

Than why does maine or west vergina exist again?



 

So they essentially want to „get rid of the waste“ in Trump speech?! For it to become New California there first needs to be no California no more. Also I’m sure the constitution forbids such a thing, right?!

That’s what I thought.

If they complain about the state‘s government why did they elect it?!
