THE CONSTITUTION HAS THE ANSWER,
IT’S NOT SECESSION,
IT’S AN ARTICLE 4, SECTION 3 PROCESS
“Lassen County voters will decide whether the rural county should support the State of Jefferson, a movement aimed at creating a 51st state to bring greater government representation to California’s northern region.
The Lassen County Board of Supervisors voted 3-2 Tuesday on a resolution that recognizes a lack of representation in state government but postpones the county’s position until June 2016.
Supervisor Jim Chapman, who opposes the State of Jefferson, led the dissent with an outspoken critique of the movement’s “misrepresentation of the facts.” And he scoffed at its call to “‘Let our people go’ – like Moses going across the desert.”
“Most of us don’t like the way government works … but history is not on the side of this issue,” said Chapman, the board’s vice chairman.
Earlier this month, Lake County supervisors voted 3-2 to place support for the State of Jefferson on a countywide ballot scheduled for November 2016. Their resolution did not endorse any part of the standard breakaway state declaration.”
