13 Southern California Counties to Secede?

Best idea to come along in months.

A California county supervisor has proposed that Southern California secede to form its own state!

Riverside County supervisor Jeff Stone

CBS Los Angeles reports, July 1, 2011, that Riverside County Supervisor Jeff Stone plans to present a proposal to the Board of Supervisors that his county lead a campaign for as many as 13 Southern California counties to secede from the state. Those counties are Riverside, Imperial, San Diego, Orange, San Bernardino, Kings, Kern, Fresno, Tulare, Inyo, Madera, Mariposa and Mono counties.

The creation of a new state of South California would allow officials to focus on securing borders, balancing budgets, improving schools and creating a vibrant economy, he said.

“Our taxes are too high, our schools don’t educate our children well enough, unions and other special interests have more clout in the Legislature than the general public,” Stone said in his statement.

He unveiled his proposal on the day Gov. Jerry Brown signed budget legislation that will divert about $14 million in 2011-12 vehicle license fee revenue from four new Riverside County cities. Officials fear the cut will cripple the new cities of Eastvale, Jurupa Valley, Menifee and Wildomar.

The best part of Stone’s proposal is this:

The proposed new state of South California would have only a part-time legislature and limits on property taxes.

Eo, you beat me to it! I was just going to post the same story! Great minds think alike. LOL!

I’ve been reading the comments on CBS story and they’re a hoot! Lots of conservatives in SoCal.


Hmmm…I thought SoCal already seceded to Mexico. Silly me.

Bets are the official state language will be Spanish. It will be mandatory that Chinese be taken as a second language. English will be but an elective.


Does anyone notice the glaring absence of Los Angeles County in this proposal to secede?

It is about time. The state name could be called state of Dixie California I’m from Riverside, Cal and I don’t miss it at all. Calornia government has run the citizens into the ground and it’s about time they stand up and declare southern California southern, not northern california. Let the citizens vote on this thru a petion on how they would like the change of there state. Citizens voice your rights. you have the right to do so. Think about it. Study it out and ponder and pray about it. Then you will know what to do.
