Making of a State in the United States of America


Why New California

New California is a new state in development exercising its constitutional Right to form from the State of California. The process to form New California is authorized and codified in:    

Article IV Section 3 of the U.S. Constitution:  

 New States may be admitted by the Congress into this Union; but no new States shall be formed or erected within the Jurisdiction of any other State; nor any State be formed by the Junction of two or more States, or parts of States, without the Consent of the Legislatures of the States concerned as well as of the Congress.     

U.S. Declaration of Independence  states:    “That, whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such Principles and organizing its Powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness”.   

The Need for New California  The U.S. Declaration of Independence of 1776, the Alta California Declaration of Independence of 1836 and the Sonoma Proclamation of 1846 declared the Right of the People in the states of Alta California and California respectively (present day California) to throw off the bonds of tyranny.      

Constitutional Authority To Act The current state of California has become governed by a tyranny, which rivals those expressed in the above documents. Therefore the United States Declaration of Independence of 1776, the Constitution as adapted in 1783 by the Congress of the United States of America, the Alta California Declaration of Independence of 1836, the Sonoma Proclamation of 1846, and the California State Constitution of 1848 Mandate the Right, the Responsibility, the Duty of the People who are suffering the long train of abuses and usurpations at the hands of a tyrannical government to abolish and make new a government by the People and for the People under GOD.   

State Splitting Process of California The process begins when a state’s legislature first votes to split the state. Once the measure in the form of a resolution passes both the California Assembly and Senate, it is submitted to Congress.   

U.S. Congress Once there, the matter is discussed. If both chambers the House and Senate of Congress vote to pass it, the state can then be split. There seems to be two options on how a state can split. In the first instance, the state decides how it’s going to be split before sending the proposal to Congress. 

Vision and Mission of New California 

Vision is for New California Statehood    

Mission is to bring about the conditions to initiate New California Statehood.   

Governance No State has been brought into the Union who could not demonstrate their ability to govern themselves. New California will demonstrate a governance system as modeled by the U.S. Declaration of Independence, Constitution and the Bill of Rights.   


Establishment of Local Governance County Committees will be established in all counties who would like to join the New California State Movement. These County Committees will serve as local governance centers and will be directly involved with the New California State movement activities. Representatives from each county will be selected to represent their respective counties on the Council of counties Committee. The County Committees will be instrumental in establishing local autonomy and outreach in their respective counties. County Committees will serve as the basis for a Legislature.       

Establishment of State Governance  Council of Counties Committee is comprised of representatives from the County Committees. The Council will be tasked to establish a Legislature, Judiciary, Executive, Declaration of Independence and Constitution for New California.   

Legislature  Established by the Council of Counties Committee the New California Legislature will be tasked with representation of their respective counties to the Legislature and will be actively engaged in all matters leading to statehood at the State of California and Federal levels. The Legislature will be established as a part time legislature.   

Judicial New California will follow a judiciary established by the New California State Constitution and will be in full compliance with United States of America Jurisprudence.   

Executive New California will elect a Governor according to the provisions in the New California Constitution    

Declaration of Independence In order to have a viable New California Constitution the Declaration of Independence for New California must work in tandem with the New California Constitution. A day of Independence will be declared to declare our intent to separate from the State of California following the provisions of Article 4 Section 3 of the United States Constitution. The Day of Independence will be the first step to in the process necessary to establish the New California Constitutional Convention. The Declaration Process will serve as the Will of the People in New California.   

Constitution During the process of the Declaration a Constitutional Convention will be convened with the representative of Counties of New California. The New California Constitution will be consistent with the United States Constitution and the Declaration of Independence. Ratification of the New California Constitution will serve as the Will of the People in New California.         

New California Commitment to Act At all times representatives from New California will stand ready to work with California State representatives and Federal representatives to complete the separation process in an orderly fashion following all federal and state laws.       

Demographic Estimates 2016 Populations    New California 15 Million  California 25 Million   New California will be the 6th largest State behind New York (bigger than Illinois and Penn),    It’s Estimated 25-27 seats in the US House of Representatives will go to New California   Old California will become the 2nd most populous state behind Texas and ahead of Florida, losing 25-27 seats in the  US House of Representatives   The 5 Southern New California counties have a population of just over 11million If they were to break away they would be a state the size of Ohio, probably larger as some other counties might join.
