STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE TO The Illinois Separation
STATE SPLIT STEP 1 - DEMONSTRATE THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE TO SEPARATE
Method One: SIGNED PETITIONS - Each county needs signatures equaling 8% of the 2018 governors’ race vote in their county in order to be on the November 3, 2020 ballot. DEADLINE: MAY 2020
Method Two: COUNTY BOARD REFERENDUM - County Board votes to pass a referendum with the same wording as the Petitions to put it on the March 2020 ballot. This replaces gathering petitions in that county.
STEP 2 - PROMOTE AND ELECT PRO-SEPARATION CANDIDATES TIS will promote the election campaigns of local, state, and federal Pro-Separation candidates through the Patriots’ Alliance. These candidates, particularly at the federal level, are essential for becoming a new state.
STEP 3 - GET OUT TO VOTE! 92% were not required to sign the petition, but we must have a majority vote at the ballot box in 2020. Continue educating the public about why separation is best and urging to VOTE YES. Remember to Vote for Pro-Separation candidates at all levels.
STEP 4: AFTER OUR VICTORY AT THE BALLOT BOX, CONVENE COUNTY BOARDS TO APPOINT TWO DELEGATES
STEP 5: DELEGATES HOLD CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTIONS
STEP 6: DELEGATES APPROVE CONSTITUTION
STEP 7 - REQUEST STATE LEGISLATURE TO ACT If they fail to approve of the separation by a majority vote in House and Senate, which is likely, we will still appeal to the Federal Government “as a loyal and suffering people” just as West Virginia did in 1862.
STEP 8 – APPEAL TO THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT Approval by the U.S. Congress is required for Statehood, regardless of what happens in Step 7. We have a growing list of grievances to use as reasons to bi-pass our current leadership. If that doesn’t change, we can ask the Federal Government for admittance into the Union, giving them our ballot vote percentage and our new Constitution. A majority vote in the House and Senate will take it to the President’s desk to sign. Congress can overturn a veto by a 2/3 majority vote.
