They are disliked in the larger cities because they would take power away from the leaders of those towns who currently dominate the league. There are many sympathizers in the smaller cities who feel cheated by the larger cities who have significant influence. They have also found an ally in the Committee to Restore the United States of America, who also supports the goal in creating a strong central government for the MSP.
History and Founding
The organization was founded on the idea of the State of Jefferson that was proposed in 1941. The organization was founded by John Quin, the mayor of Port Orford in early 2007.
Some Jefferson Nationalists have proposed renaming the MSP as the Republic of Jefferson once they implement the changes in government they seek.
