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


The so-called Southern California is a fairly conservative area, and would not want to be part of LA.

Not going to happen.

We'd have a net gain of 2 states, and while representation in the House wouldn't change numbers, you'd have a net of 4 new US Senate seats, with it being essentially a guaranteed gain of at least 2 Senate seats for the Democratic party (Southern California trends conservative, but it's not a lock for Republicans.

Which is why you can forget statehood for Puerto Rico, as it'd be 2 perpetual Democratic senate seats for at least a generation.

Neither. Its Calforina. Also if this does happen, you can expect TX to split into 5 different states. North, South, East, West, and Central TX.

Why not call in Lex Luthor, then we can have some great real-estate sales in Otisburg?

California is pretty big. Not all the state has quake problems.

when they can't decide and/or secede... however I believe they have been threatening "separation" for decades now, it'll eventually happen I suppose, looks like there is a new/another round. if it does happen, then it will. just move around in the area that suits you best? deal with what you're trapped in? if they do divide, they won't be one, if not, the biggest state of the states

I thought the issue was widespread up the West coast, I mean there's a volcano in Washington... Which speaking of which, I don't want to be near those either.

Besides, another complaint of mine was the lack of four seasons. I must have four seasons.

I have heard several compelling arguments for this. Northern California is extremely Republican and conservative but they are effectively being disenfranchised with how much voting power San Francisco and Los Angeles have and how left-wing those areas are. The state government, which is run by extreme leftists, is essentially imposing their fiscal and cultural dictates on these regions resulting in high taxes, unpopular laws (like the recent decriminalization of intentionally infecting someone with HIV by lying about you carrying the disease), and burdensome regulations. And in return they get table scraps as these same leftists funnel all the money they can into their voting base in San Francisco and Los Angeles.

Japan has four seasons!

That's something they're so proud of.

Anyway, eastern Cali does not have so many problems. You don't get much snow by you, do you?

That's nice, but I'm not interested in living in Japan either. It'd be too much of a culture shock for me. I belong in the west (not western USA!).

We used to at least get one snow storm of 6 inches or more a year until the winter of late 2011/12 (funny how early 2011 brought a storm that dumped like 25 inches just to the east of where I was). Every single winter since then has been pathetic. We have not seen more than two inches in a single storm since, and most years we've only gotten dustings.

I could see how a lot of snow would be annoying, but I want to live somewhere where it isn't hitting the 70s and 80s during the winter. So sick of that. Besides a legitimately cold and snowy winter would possibly make me actually appreciate Spring. Whereas I dread Spring where I live, because it's just hot, humid weather with tornadoes.

But either way I need the variety. I don't feel like I'd get any resemblance of that in California. Their seasons are...different.

They're trying to split California again? I still remember when they were proposing the 6 state split. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Six_Californias

You only see this in 1st world countries... when they don't have to worry about basic needs like shelter, food, water and utilities... they will find ways to segregate, discriminate and divide. That's just how it is.

Failing to convince others your point of view is correct isn't you being disenfranchised, it's you getting out voted. It's a democracy, that's how it works. Rigging the vote so your side gets seats it wouldn't have otherwise goes counter to healthy democracy.

I'll let nature decide where I end up when the great earthquake turns us into an archipelago
