Inland Part of California Wants to Split Off from Coastal Progressive Power Centers and Form New, More Conservative State

How about the progressive part of California just secedes from the United States?

Think about it, progressives: 90% tax rates, guns illegal for everyone except politicians and celebrities and millionaires, and Obama can run for president.

Come on, fellas. You know you want it.

Anyway, baby steps:

With the reading of their own version of a Declaration of Independence, founders of the state of New California took the first steps to what they hope will eventually lead to statehood.

To be clear, they don't want to leave the United States, just California.

"Well, it's been ungovernable for a long time. High taxes, education, you name it, and we're rated around 48th or 50th from a business climate and standpoint in California," said founder Robert Paul Preston.

The state of New California would incorporate most of the state's rural counties, leaving the urban coastal counties to the current state of California.
