Nate Wallin: Confederate flag very different from State of Jefferson flag

The Confederate flag stands for many different things to many different people. I view the flag in many different ways myself.

But to believe that the State of Jefferson flag is just as much as the Confederate flag, you are misguided. For a person that is, I believe, educated you are highly misinformed. For an old saying “walk a mile in my shoes,” please become more aware of what the State of Jefferson is trying to do and stands for.

We want to control our government the way it is supposed to be, for the people by the people. We need taxes to be controlled as well as the government. We need our infrastructure fixed. We need proper education for our children. We do not need government to tell us what to do in our own homes and on our own property. This would set us back almost 200 years. Frankly, I don’t have another 200 years to live.

Please become educated on what we want to do in the State of Jefferson. We do dislike what is going on in the space called California. I am a Californian by birth, as well as a United States citizen.
