State of Jefferson

Some folks say they've had enough of California's nanny state. And they're not planning to move to escape it.

The Sacramento Bee reports today on the growing secessionist movement in Northern California.
This year, on Sept. 3 and Sept. 23, respectively, county supervisors in Siskiyou and Modoc passed declarations supporting withdrawal from California as a first step toward forming the State of Jefferson. Enacted before packed galleries, the declarations asserted that state lawmakers neglected to represent the interests of “rural and frontier counties” by failing to protect property and water rights, passing gun restrictions and approving an “illegal fire tax.”
