Happy Sunday to you. Welcome to the Our Opinion Network. This IS Peter Carlock, and this IS the Big Sunday Edition of the OPNtalk Blog. Glad you stopped by. This should be interesting to watch. According to CBS Los Angeles - Official Calls For Riverside, 12 Other Counties To Secede From California
Riverside County Supervisor Jeff Stone apparently thinks so, after proposing that the county lead a campaign for as many as 13 Southern California counties to secede from the state.So basically, they are saying that they are fed up, and they are not going to take it anymore. They are DONE with Liberal Policies that have all but destroyed their State, and they are looking for a better way. They are probably watching all the OTHER States that have Republican Governors, and seeing how they are turning their States around. California, Higher Taxes, more Regulations, worse and worse they get. Logic and Sanity dictate, if something keeps failing, try something ELSE. Like I said, this SHOULD be interesting to watch.
Stone said in a statement late Thursday that Riverside, Imperial, San Diego, Orange, San Bernardino, Kings, Kern, Fresno, Tulare, Inyo, Madera, Mariposa and Mono counties should form the new state of South California.
The creation of the new state would allow officials to focus on securing borders, balancing budgets, improving schools and creating a vibrant economy, he said.
“Our taxes are too high, our schools don’t educate our children well enough, unions and other special interests have more clout in the Legislature than the general public,” Stone said in his statement.
He unveiled his proposal on the day Gov. Jerry Brown signed budget legislation that will divert about $14 million in 2011-12 vehicle license fee revenue from four new Riverside County cities.
Officials fear the cut will cripple the new cities of Eastvale, Jurupa Valley, Menifee and Wildomar.
Stone said he would present his proposal to the Board of Supervisors July 12.
The new state would have no term limits, only a part-time legislature and limits on property taxes.
