Yet another move to bring rationality to American politics:
The Siskiyou County Board of Supervisors voted 4-1 this afternoon to pursue seceding from California.
More than 100 people packed the supervisors’ chambers late this morning for a discussion on whether the county should issue a declaration that it wants to secede from the state. Nearly all those in attendance appeared to be for the move…
Siskiyou County is a rural county in northern California which has zero effective representation in both the California legislature and the United States Senate…both places merely representing coastal/urban California with no thought to the rest of the State. The country is burdened by taxes and regulations written by the coastal/urban areas which bear little relation to the needs and aspirations of the people of Siskiyou. The only way these people can get representation is to have their own State and send their own Senators to DC.
More and more of this is what we need.
