A Race For The 51st State (Video)

By Susan Duclos

First eight counties in northeastern Colorado wanted to secede and create their own 51st state, then came  five counties in Western Maryland, and now a grassroots citizen movement from Northern California residents has begun with the Siskiyou County Board of Supervisors taking the first step in what would be a long journey, by voting 4-1 in support of a citizen-led initiative “to commence the Constitution’s Article 4, section 3 process of carving out a new state from an existing state just like the state of Maine was created out of the state of Massachusetts,”  said Supervisor Marcia Armstrong.

What the residents pushing to secede want, in each case, is similar. They want local control, smaller government and gun rights, and feel their elected liberal officials are giving them the exact opposite and are not representing their voice in their state.

Gigi Erneta discusses these movements to secede in the video below.
