27 Counties in Illinois Pass Referendums To Explore Possible Secession

27 Counties in Illinois Pass Referendums To Explore Possible Secession

27 Counties in Illinois voted to explore secession.

Grassroots organizers in California want to secede from California and Oregon. Now, 27 counties want to secede from Illinois. All three are deep blue states. Will other counties follow suit in states where Democrats rule? I would not be surprised. These states make it like you are living in China or Russia. Believe it or not, no one but the terminally woke are willing to live like that.

High taxes, crushing regulations, and a state government that wants to run every facet of your life is just too much for most people. People want to live free and have the ability to put a little money aside in case of an emergency or retirement. That’s nearly impossible to do in California, Illinois, and Oregon. All 27 counties passed resolutions, through the vote, that allows county leaders to explore secession.

In 2016, Hillary won the state4 of Illinois, but most of the state went to Trump. They just have fewer people than, say Chicago:

Non-profit New Illinois is educating Illinois citizens about the process of pursuing the creation of a new state:

New Illinois is a nonprofit organization that educates Illinois citizens about their right to pursue the creation of new state from the State of Illinois. We are seeking a state split, following the process provided in the U.S. Constitution (Article IV, Sec. 3). This is the same way that West Virginia split from Virginia.

We are a addressing longstanding divide in the State of Illinois. This divide is not between Democrats and Republicans—it is urban vs. rural, small town and suburban. We are two very different places, both culturally and economically. Legislation and policies addressing the needs and best interests of a major urban area like Chicago/Cook County are not necessarily in the best interests of the rest of the state.

From NBC Chicago:

On Election Day in Illinois, ballots contained statewide questions ranging from whether or not to amend the state’s constitution, to who should be the next Governor of Illinois, to who should sit on the Illinois State Supreme Court.

But some local ballots contained questions about whether to leave the state altogether.

Tuesday, two Illinois counties and a portion of another passed non-binding referendums that would encourage their elected officials to engage in discussions about potentially severing ties with the state government.

The votes were hardly a new phenomenon. Instead, they join a growing list of Illinois counties seeking to express their displeasure with lawmakers.

Previously, at least 24 counties had passed so-called “separation referendums,” according to reporting by Illinois Public Media. The three new additions to that list, Brown, Hardin, and the northeastern portion of Madison County, would bring that number to 27, representing more than 25% of the state’s 102 counties.

According to IPM, 23 counties had previously passed separation referendums after the 2020 elections, including Clark, Clay, Crawford, Cumberland, Edwards, Effingham, Fayette, Jasper, Hancock, Jefferson, Johnson, Lawrence, Marion, Massac, Moultrie, Pope, Richland, Shelby, Wabash, Wayne and White.

Now for a reality check. None of these secession plans will work. In order to secede you need permission from the state legislature and then Congress. They cannot permit this. In the case of California and Illinois, it would create two new states. That would make them eligible for 2 Senators each. Democrats might make an offer to let those two states secede if Republicans will allow DC and Puerto Rico to become states as well. That would be a non-starter.

A second reason they would vote down secession is that they don’t want to give up all of the tax dollars they would lose. Money is power and they will not give up power for anything.

    My investigation into a DHS program that instructed law enforcement to treat Christians as terrorists won me the 2014 CJN Journalist of the Year award. Here is a video of Glenn Beck reading my article on his program: I am a troll bridge. You can cross me, but you will pay a price.

    Any secession movement not established upon Yahweh God of the Bible as its Sovereign and thus His triune moral law as supreme will only prove to be another contemporary instance of man doing what’s right in his own eyes, per Judges 21:25.

    Judges 21:25 is what today is commonly known has humanism, aka We the Peopleism.

    As such, it will be ultimately doomed to failure. Case in point: The biblically egregious Constitutional Republic born of the biblically seditious Constitution that invariably finds itself today precipitously teetering on the precipice of moral depravity and destruction.

    “[B]ecause they have … trespassed against my law … they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind….” (Hosea 8:1, 7)

    Today’s America is reaping the inevitable ever-intensifying whirlwind resulting from the wind sown by the constitutional framers and fanned by today’s hoodwinked Christians and patriots who have been bamboozled into believing today’s whirlwind can be dissipated by appealing to the wind responsible for spawning the whirlwind.

      You are apparently a well educated Jahovas Witness. Good luck with that! However, for the most part you are correct.

    “These states make it like you are living in China or Russia.”
    What a dumb comment.
    Have you ever been to China or Russia?
    Of course not. So not only do you not know what the hell you’re talking about but apparently slept through your basic English course.
    First, learn how to write.
    Then, learn how to think.
    Good luck with that.

      My only question, What state do you live in? Do you live in a state with continuous one party rule? Do you live in a state where the one major city sucks the life out of the rest of the state? Not trying to be funny, simple answers to simple questions

    Good luck to the people in Illinois that want to be rid of the Chicago machine, wish we in the upstate regions of NY would do the same to be rid of the NYC machine. I know I’m not alone, but tired of being told I’m not wanted in the state I was born & raised in because I’m a conservative. It was bad enough when Andy Cuomo told us to leave now Kathy Hochul more or less told a third of NYS voters to leave.

    I live in upper Michigan, The Upper Peninsula. The only connection to lower Michigan is “ONE BRIDGE!” We are also as different as black is to white. The lifestyle up here is similar to the way is used to be in the 1950’s. No! we are “not” backwards! We are just “more normal” and more family and God oreintated. One small section of voters around the city of Marquette is Democratic voting, mostly because it is a colledge town with liberal professors who are brainwashing students who can then vote. We have a land border over three hundred miles long with Wisconsin and “NO” physical connection to lower Michigan at all. We not only have a cultural reason but an unchangeable physical reason to be our own state. Way more so than any of these other regions who want to seceed. We would like to be the state of “Superior” because the great lake of Superior is our entire northern border.

    The real problem is you have scumbags counting the votes in the heavily populated areas..true in nearly every blue state..our government is just about totally out of control..proof is how about the trying to force everyone to buy a souped up golf cart and green energy is just bullish-t from these government scumbags who really want to sell oil leases and coal mining rights to China which they are already doing just keeping it so secret..instead of Americans using their own resources..check for yourself

    When I think about secession, I would like to see states that comply with traditional values upholding our freedoms separated from those who don’t. Let the woke states suffer the consequences of their choices and let the conservative states benefit from their choices. Then reduce the federal government by 75% and let the states be freed of their imposing regulations and taxation. The significant difference between the so-called blue states from the red states will be eye opening!
