Efrain Rojas: Secession is a valid idea

September 17, 2013 

Regarding the Sept.9 editorial “Siskiyou’s secession bid is a silly stunt”: The State of Jefferson should be allowed to secede. You don’t have to live in Siskiyou County to support the cause of secession.

Typical non-native liberal California carpetbaggers explode with indignation when they hear of Northern California wanting to secede. Without fail, they will then insult Northern California residents by dismissing them as mooches dependent on the benevolence of the “enlightened class.”

How is this condescension any different from that of dictators or slave owners?
