New California declares independence from state citing high taxes, poor services, bad education

Should California be broken up into separate states? 

New California has had enough of the rest of their state and its policies so much so that it declared independence.

Rural California residents are currently doing everything in their constitutional power to get the United States government to recognize New California as the 51st state of the United States.

CBS 13 in Sacramento reported Monday that,

“Unlike other separation movements in the past, the state of New California wants to do things by the book, citing Article 4, Section 3 of the US Constitution and working with the state legislature to get it done, similar to the way West Virginia was formed.”

Robert Paul Preston, founder of the movement to secede cited that the state is simply too "ungovernable" and has been for a long time.  The high taxes, poor education, and poor business climate are what have frustrated these residents the most.

Those who support the movement say they don't want to secede from the United States. Just California. New California would break away from major cosmopolitan areas like Los Angeles and coastal counties.

“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 told CBS Sacramento.

On Tuesday's episode of "Pat Gray Unleashed," Pat praised the movement for doing it by the book.
