Secession Movement Growing

Once the USA tried to tear itself apart during a Civil War over the unsolvable issue of slavery. There was one state, though, that was itself split and remains split to this day - Virginia begat West Virginia. 

The Civil War would have resulted in two USAs had the Confederacy prevailed - some could make the case the south winning would have prevented the federal government from becoming the monolithic beast it is today.

Colorado has a chunk of counties in the Northeast corner pushing back and voting on secession.  Southern California counties including Riverside, Orange and San Diego are also getting fed up enough to split off.   The grumbling among counties and states alike gets worse when American's loose common ground and can't resolve differences like grown-ups - and most of us understand liberals are not grown-ups.

But the really interesting one is Northern California and Southern Oregon.

The Siskiyou County Board of Supervisors voted 4-1 on Tuesday for a declaration of secession. The vote is likely futile since it requires approval of the very menace assembly that has them pissed off enough to want to split off.  But backers want other rural counties in Northern California and Southern Oregon to join them in the creation of a new state called the State of Jefferson.

The idea first originated with a Mayor in Oregon in 1941 and has never completely died out.
