Following New California, New Nevada State Declares Independence
PAHRUMP, NEVADA — January 26, 2019
A group of Nevada activists joined the Chairman of the New Nevada State movement Robert E. Thomas on Monday, Jan. 21 to announce their independence from the current state to form a new state called New Nevada. New Nevada is exercising its constitutional right to form from the state of Nevada as codified under Article IV Section 3 of the United States Constitution and in the United States Declaration of Independence.
The activists in the New Nevada state movement are hoping to break all 15 rural counties away from Nevada. If the movement is successful, Clark County will be the only county remaining in the current state. In 2017, Nevada had an estimated population of 3 million, while Clark County had 2.2 million people. Las Vegas belongs to Clark County.
“Our action is based upon the God-given rights of every person,” stated Thomas in front of Nye Courthouse together with a crowd of supporters. “In this declaration of independence from the state of Nevada we repeat, what our founding fathers said in our nation’s Declaration of Independence, that we hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal and that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, among that those are life, liberty, possession of property, and the pursuit of happiness.”
“However,” Thomas continued, “when any government becomes destructive of these legitimate ends, it is the right and duty of the people to alter or abolish this destructive government and to institute a new government.”

“This is a historical Constitutional movement across the nation,” said Dane Senser, an activist who came to support the event from California.
The Declaration of Independence made by the activists of the New Nevada state claimed three reasons for the movement:
1. The rural areas of Nevada have not been properly represented by the current state legislature. The Nevada state government has enacted regulations, such as “the infamous commerce tax,” against the will of the residents living in the rural areas.
2. The state’s one-party control legislature wants to enact a sanctuary state policy, restrictions against the Second Amendment, and more and higher taxes.
3. The current state legislature has failed to provide a republican form of government, as guaranteed by Article IV, Section 4 of the US Constitution.
Therefore, the New Nevada Declaration of Independence concluded that “it is the Right of the People to seek a peaceful and Constitutional remedy to this abuse of powers.”
The activists all wore yellow vests at the event. Thomas explained that their actions were in solidarity with the French citizens’ movement against socialism and globalism, and in solidarity with all people who love liberty.
Dane Senser also told the Epoch Times that there are now at least four other states with similar movements. Senser was one of the leading figures in the New California state movement, whose activists are holding their 3rd Constitutional Convention today in Roseville, CA. Both movements have so far, step by step, followed the Constitution Article IV Section 3, which West Virginia used to break away from Virginia in 1861.
As USA Really has already reported, last December activists from the New California state movement claimed they joined the Yellow Vests movement in France for the same reasons.
