The state of California has always been regarded as a very liberal state. The state tends to always vote democratic in elections, and always seems to have a very liberal voice in American society. Those who live outside of California normally think that the state is quite unified in its political beliefs. However, this is not the case. A small strip of coastal California is the driving force behind the liberal state. This small strip is the most populated region of the state and contains large cities like San Francisco and Los Angeles.

Although the state has made attempts to split in the past, this time in particular appears to be more serious. Leaders of “New California” made public their declaration of independence on January 16, 2018. The area that is attempting to separate contains the vast majority of the state and also contains most of the rural counties.

The main reason for the split is the political disagreement. The conservative rural areas of the state feel that they are not treated equally compared to those who live in the heavily populated coastal cities. Those major cities have always controlled the vote of the state in the past. However, according to CBS news, those cities also control many things within the state such as taxes and education. The rural counties feel like they do not have a local or national voice.

Despite the many challenges that come along with the process of gaining statehood, the people of “New California” are united and determined to complete the split. If the process goes as planned, new California could be the 51st state by late 2018.
