    Won't happen, but I see nothing wrong with the proposal. California is an enormous state and it probably wouldn't be a bad idea for it to split. I think the state has grown too large for it's own good.

    That's interesting. I've never heard of counties seceding but they probably have a better idea of how to govern themselves versus the overburdening state.

    They should create an illegal State for all illegal immigrants, funded by Blue States.

    SoCal will never form a 51st State. If they wish, I will support a bill forming Lower California. Keep in mind, the water in NoCal is ours. It is sent south through a man made canal, a canal which can be shut down by a new state legislature in the Sacramento. In doing so our rivers will allow salmon and steelhead to spawn in creek beds cut off today by low water downstream.

    I suggest the break begin on the straight line borders of San Luis Obisbo, Kern and San Bernadino. Everything North is California, these counties and all the rest south, the new states of Lower California.

    Of course by the time this occurs Spanish will be the language spoken in the southland for everyday discourse, English will simply be pro forma.

    Never going to happen. Northern California cannot survive without Southern California and vice versa. It will always remain one incredibly diverse and naturally beautiful state, albeit with a state government that has serious problems.

    Wow, liberal tyrant.

    I'm shocked to learn that you would support the idea of killing off your southern neighbors with the threat of drought if the did not tow your line.

    Actually, I'm not. I've understood for some time now that liberals are little more that would be tyrants.

    Well this is not quite as dumb as the Baja Arizona idea. At least it's based on wanting to help your region over not wanting to be near people that are different than you.

    Hell, let them, see what happens. If all goes well, NY will break away from NYC, Il will break from Chicago, etc etc.

    I lived in California for 3 years, Nor Cal and So Cal are at each others throats all the time, especially the Norteno and Sureno Street gangs, so why not? I like Northern California, especially the Bay Area, much better.

    Kentucky and West Virginia seceded from Virginia. Maine was split off from Massachusetts.
