3 Californias? Billionaire’s Plan to Split California into 3 Separate States Clears First Hurdle

I like where I am, so I would choose neither. I'm curious why they will not just go for being their own country or something. The great country of California.

Let see if this thing can become a reality or not..

"One nation, indivisible". But I wouldn't mind if we just let California be it's own thing, one less problem to worry about.

If that by some miracle actually happens then there in lies the most definitive proof that power doesn't lie with the people anymore. Companies shouldn't be deciding state lines. I get that it still needs a vote by the public but why is this guy even taken seriously enough to be put on ballots? Money? It's not like a random citizen has this ability.

In California, apparently, The People have the ability to put things on the ballot if they get all their friends to sign it. It usually dies after that, though. It doesn't really matter if they're serious or not, just that they clear the signature count.

This is an old idea that wont happen. California would have a much better chance of being its own country, and Oregon and Washington could come with us and we'll be known as West America

The last time part of the country tried to break off from the union, it didn't go so well for them. I wonder what would happen this time?

As for splitting up Cali, it makes sense to me. People in less densely populated areas of the state are basically disenfranchised by those that live in the high density areas.

I live in NY, we have the same situation here. NYC, Nassau, and Westchester counties essentially dictate to the rest of the state. Look at the electoral maps, you see a see of red with a small densely populated splotch of blue that controls the rest of the state. Breaking NYC off of New York State would give millions of people a voice in their government that they do not currently have.

Why split SoCal into two regions?

There's a NorCal and a SoCal. None of this silly 3 Californias stuff.

I can understand Northern California not wanting to be associated with Southern California, but Southern California without Los Angeles?...Well, what IS it, then??

I don't care what they are doing with the state, as long we don't have to bring out passport with us when we are driving over there to pick up foods and supplies.

I read an article in Car and Driver magazine recently about 60% + of the roads/bridges need to be fix

+

drought, wildfires, landslide, earthquakes, sink holes, etc.. and yet they still have the time/money/resources to worry about dividing the state ?

I don't want to live in California. A beautiful place to visit, but they don't have four seasons and those earthquakes. I can't live there. If I move it has to be somewhere to the North and East.
