The California National Party (CNP) is a political party in the state of California. The party was founded in 2015. It has been described by California legislative historian Alex Vassar as "the biggest-promising political party you haven't heard of".[1] It is currently chaired by Theo Slater. The party's main goal is achieving California's independence from the United States of America.[2] Their platform also includes a wide range of proposed reforms. This includes health care, schools and welfare.[3] Many of their proposals are generally left of center and reflect the party's "pragmatic progressive" ideology.[4]
