The organizers secure a long-term initiative to California’s secession from the United States now say they want to give way to, almost half of the state, including all Federal land to an “Autonomous Native American nation.”
“Calexit”, such as the proposal for California secession is well known, was the green light from the state government at the beginning of this year, begins collecting signatures to place the measure on the November ballot. Supporters had to collect till the middle of October, 365,880 signatures of registered voters for a statewide vote.
But the tag announced Calexit founder, on Tuesday added an additional goal: to construction “, the first Autonomous Native American nation in North America,” Native Americans all the Federal lands in the state, running from the border with Mexico up to the state border together with the state of Oregon.
Calexit supporters want to ‘take back their tax dollars’
“Why don’t we do something to right some of the mistakes of the past, the Indian people, and give you back your country?” Calexit co-founder Louis J. Marinelli, said on Tuesday.
Because most of the country would belong to, conservative-leaning parts of California, would create the plan, a “buffer-zone between Donald Trump’s America and the new independent Republic of California”, another co-founder of the initiative, Marcus Ruiz Evans, said in a statement.
Speaking of Fox News, Marinelli said the plan would not be unduly disruptive, California.
“There is minimal impact on the California population, two-thirds of them live in the county on the California coast, it is said,” Marinelli.
He added that Calexit the organizers continue their fight, even if Democrats make big gains in the upcoming mid-term elections.
“Our campaign is not motivated by the shift in the balance of political power in Washington,” Marinelli said in an E-Mail. “We are motivated by the fact that California is a distinct society with the ability to self-govern, regardless of a country whose values are in direct conflict with ours, and a country whose system of government [and their institutions] is defective and out of date.”
On 4. July, Calexit staged a rally in front of the state capitol in Sacramento, calling Trump Fans to “get out” of the state, and decrying the American “occupation” of California.
“The Fourth of July is a day to celebrate in California,” the campaign said in an Independence Day statement.
Calexit differs from a parallel effort sponsored by venture capitalist Tim Draper to California split into three States, known as “Cal 3” in the name of increasing the efficiency of the government.
Draper, a Stanford and Harvard-educated billionaire, got the media’s attention — and a great stroke of luck — four years ago, through the purchase of bitcoins seized by the government at auction. He had collected more than 600,000 signatures to get his initiative on the November ballot, prior to their removal by the highest court in the state. His libertarian-leaning views defy easy partisan characterization: Bloomberg Draper has described the political development as a journey of “democratic, Republican, Libertarian, well, its own party.”
CALIFORNIA SUPREME COURT BLOW FOR CAL-3, REMOVED IT FROM THE NOVEMBER BALLOT
The California Supreme Court earlier this month, the Cal blocked 3 proposal from the November ballot, saying it was a significant change in the state structure, through a ballot initiative. Instead, the court ruled, the state Constitution-Constitution for necessary action by the legislature.
The July decision was a setback for Calexit the organizers, because a similar objection might be made to share their proposal for large parts of the state.
Calexit founders have also frustration expressed at the fact that the voters sometimes had Calexit for Cal-3 confused.
There are several efforts in the past to break California away from the rest of America. They were either withdrawn or failed to collect the signatures required to move forward.
But the enthusiasm for such measures in the last few years grown. A 2014 Reuters poll showed that only 20 percent of Californians want to secede; in the year 2017, after the trump color of the dial, the number grew to 32 percent.
Marinelli told Fox News that he is well aware of the fact that a lot of conservative support from California and the rest of the country.
“We would like to see the official numbers on Federal-wide support for Calexit,” he said, adding that, “on a constant basis … the people [are], E-Mail, how you want California to secede, or as they call it: break off and fall into the ocean.”
