What does that yellow sign with those two X’s mean?

I get asked this and thought maybe you would like to know the history about this simple sign.

In 1941 the residents of southern Oregon and northern California - fed up with paying taxes and receiving no services in return- decided to form a new state (look at what Jerry Brown is driving down our throats right now—new gas taxes and car fees- sound familiar?) Well, back to history-a gold pan was handy, they painted two X’s on it-representing the famous double-cross and the State of Jefferson was born.

Today we know this:  California is too large to govern. Our vote here in northern California has been deluted to over forty two (42) to one (1).  We suffer from lack of representation and the delusion of vote.

We are over taxed:  Highest in the nation by an average of 13.3 of income and 7.5 of sales tax before the local taxes are added on.  Corporations pay 8.9 income tax.

Over regulated:  We have been disenfranchised!  Every day the California legislature creates laws that strangle our economies and drive out both businesses and families.  

Is this legal?  To form a more perfect union?  YES.   Article 4, Section 3 of our Constitution states, “ New states may be admitted by the congress into this Union; but no new state may be formed or erected within the jusridiction of any 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 Congress.

What does the Constitution of the State of California have to say about this?   Article 2, Section 1 says, “ All political power is inherent in the people.  Government is instituted for their protection, security, and benefit or reform it when the public good may require.
So there you have it.   go to soj51.org and check out the rest of the reasons that this is the time to take back our rights.
