Recently several of our liberal commenters have publically opposed the State of Jefferson, saying it’s a waste of time because it’s never going to happen. I would remind them that standing up for the same idealism on which this nation was founded is never a waste of time.
Sure, the odds are pretty long that we will be allowed by Sacramento to petition Washington. We all know that, but we’re convinced this is the best option when it comes to fair taxation and equal representation. No questi0n, the odds are long, but they are not insurmountable. It only requires a determined will to overcome those long odds. If enough Northern Californian’s demand statehood and they say it long enough and loud enough, it will happen. Jerico’s walls will come tumbling down, not with a horn, but with the voice of the people. There will be no holding back America’s 51st State, if we so resolve it and that is the biggest obstical of them all. Do we have the courage of our convictions?
In the words of Dewey Bueno one of our detractors, “I want to get all politicians on the take out !” That’s an almost impossible mission isn’t it? But, he’s not distracted by the odds, Dewey is determined to do what is right. This sums up the State of Jefferson movement. Don’t be deterred by our odds Dewey – do what is right.
