California looks for an exit

SAN MARCOS—The Yes California campaign will be setting up a table every Wednesday and Thursday in the SU quad to gather signatures to put California independence on the ballot for vote in spring of 2019.

The ballot proposition would ask if the California state constitution should be amended to say that they are no longer an inseparable part of the United States. This vote would not make the state independent, but would make independence possible.

For the proposition to become a ballot measure, 600,000 votes are needed by June 29. That is why the table will be set up on campus two days a week until the end of the school year.

For more information on California independence, go to yescalifornia.org, or visit the Yes California booth in the SU quad.

  1. In order for democracy to exist, the people need both sides of issues to be brought to light. This article, though seemingly informative, is limited and bias in regards to the sources it provides. To become a more credible and respected source of news, it is necessary to provide readers with information on both sides of the issue. A simple google search directed me to websites such as redstate.com which argued against the Yes California campaign. Or you could reference people to the Declaration of Independence: “Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes.”
    Thank you for your article on current local political events, I feel it essential to have reporters who address local movements as that is where voter power is the strongest. Good luck at SFS!
