Not happy with the way your state is being run? Most people would probably agree that politicians could do a better job. But what can you do about it? Sure, you could run for office, protest injustice or just move to another state. Or, you could do what a group of Californians did and just attempt to start their own state...called "New California
." Pretty creative name, right?
A group of activists near Sacramento declared independence from California yesterday and formed "New California
." Unfortunately for them, that's not really how things work. You can't just say it and have it be reality. In order for New California to really be a state, they would have to get the consent of the old California and Congress to make it happen. So good luck with that!
