On Monday, a group proposing to split California into two states read its Declaration of Independence.The group, called New California, has been behind splitting the state up for several years and has proposed several different versions. The document states that the counties of New California "strive to be free from the State of California, and that as a Free and Independent State, have full power to establish and maintain law and order".

The group is organized into committees and county representatives and predicts it will take 10 to 18 months before they can fully work with the state legislature, CBC reported. Los Angeles, San Francisco, Sacramento and other cities along the coast would be separate from the rest of California.

According to USA Today, the group cited Article 4, Section 3 of the U.S. Constitution in plans to become a new state - which would require state legislature approval and a resolution in Congress.

A group has launched a campaign to divide California into two states.

New California founders argue current California is "governed by a tyranny" and that under the U.S. Declaration of Independence and Constitution, they have a right to institute a new government.

In rhetorical terms, the New California plan is a call to "the Duty of the People who are suffering the long train of abuses and usurpations at the hands of a tyrannical government". "We will be working as the Constitution says". The complaints are founded in beliefs the most populated state with the equivalent of the world's sixth largest economy is too big. With no hope of winning anyway, as is the present situation, the Republican Party in these areas puts forth very little effort. This where the majority of the Black and brown people, while the other cities in "New California" are overwhelming white and segregated.

If California were not a reliable Democrat state, the chances of a Democrat winning the White House again would be dramatically reduced.
