New California State Activists Calling for 3rd Constitutional Convention
ROSEVILLE, CALIFORNIA – January 1, 2019
Following the January 15, 2018 New California State Declaration of Independence, the July 21, 2018 1st Constitutional Convention at Harris Ranch, and the October 5-6 2nd Constitutional Convention, now comes the 3rd Constitutional Convention at the Roseville Veterans Hall, 110 Park Dr, in Roseville, CA, on January 26.
New California is a new state in development exercising its constitutional right to form from the state of California as codified under Article IV Section 3 of the United States Constitution and in the United States Declaration of Independence.
After years of over taxation, regulation, and mono party politics, the state of California is in decline in essential basic services such as education, law enforcement, fire protection, transportation, housing, health care, taxation, voter rights, banking, state pension systems, prisons, state parks, water resource management, home ownership, infrastructure and many more, New California State Volunteers say in their statement.
County Committees are being established in all counties that would like to join the New California state movement. These County Committees (51 counties are active to date) serve as local governance centers meeting monthly to educate volunteers about the process of becoming a state and conducting outreach to their community at public events and town halls.
The Organizing Committee invites all Californians to join the delegates of the New California state movement as they come together for the third time to construct the New California State Constitution.
California had two other efforts to split the state in recent years: the Cal 3 and Jefferson State proposals. Paul Preston, the founder of the New California state movement said the failure of these initiatives to follow the Constitution have caused extreme difficulties for them.
Cal 3 proposed splitting California into three states and was launched in August 2017 by American venture capitalist Tim Draper. Draper spent more than $5 million and gathered enough signatures to put Cal 3 as Prop. 9 onto the 2018 ballot, but it was removed from the ballot by the California Supreme Court.
Jefferson State proposed forming a new state by splitting 21 counties off from California and Oregon. The activists supporting this proposal have met strong resistance from the state legislature, and they recently started taking legal action to move the proposal forward. But the U.S. Supreme Court so far has chosen not to hear the case.
“We are not just constitutionalist. We are the original constitutionalists,” said Preston.
The activists in the New California state movement have so far, step by step, followed the Constitution Article IV Section 3, which West Virginia used to break away from Virginia in 1861.
Each county and fractions of counties attempting to break away from the current state have formed their own reform governments.
The activists believe the current California state government will soon face a fiscal crisis. When it happens, the movement will negotiate with the current state legislature and make a financial deal with it, using the rich natural resources of the new state.
As USA Really has already reported, earlier in December activists from the New California state movement claimed they have joined the Yellow Vests movement in France against socialism and globalism.
