SAN DIEGO – 13 Southern California counties have voted to secede from California and form a new state.

The new states will be called Calmerica – because the citizens in Southern California want to take back California from “the Mexican invaders.”

“Mexicans have taken over and the Northern Californians don’t give a damn,” said Temecula resident, Jonathan Taklan.  “They just changed English from #1 on the voice prompts to #2.  We have to take action to take our state back!”

Riverside County Supervisor Jeff Stone propose that the county join with 13 Southern California counties to secede from the state.  The measure was quickly voted and it passed unanimously.  The new state, Calmerica, will become the 51st state as of January 1st, 2012.

Stone said in a statement late Thursday that Riverside, Imperial, San Diego, Orange, San Bernardino, Kings, Kern, Fresno, Tulare, Inyo, Madera, Mariposa and Mono counties will be part of the Calmerica.

The creation of the new state will allow officials to focus on securing borders, balancing budgets, improving schools and creating a vibrant economy, he said.

“Our taxes are too high, our schools don’t educate our children well enough, unions and other special interests have more clout in the Legislature than the general public,” Stone said in his statement.

The secession vote happened on  the day Gov. Jerry Brown signed budget legislation that will divert about $14 million in 2011-12 vehicle license fee revenue from four new Riverside County cities.

Calmerica intends to immediately build a forty-foot wall along its Southern Border and will send its new National Guard to “shoot and kill any illegal crossing into our state.”

President Barack Obama has strongly opposed the new state and will “do everything it takes to control the people of Southern California.”  Obama may send the U.S. Army to fight the Southern California secessionists.  “If we have to control them by force, we will do it.  They will not get away with this on my watch.”

Here’s an initial report that happened BEFORE the votes passed.
