    Default Californians Likely To Cast Votes On Splitting Into 6 States

    I don't like this.

    I don't like this either, but only because changing the number of states is like... "Pluto no longer being a planet"-level devastating to me.

    Also, there are like political factors which play into this that I should know, but have long since pushed out of my mind.

    I don't know how is it there but IMO if someplace is big and with a high population density it's not a bad idea to split it in order to make it easier to handle, only problem I can see is that it might give funny ideas to Texa and then reps get a bunch of new seats(which might be why California wants to do it).

    This will never pass.

    Slow news day I guess.

    My grandparents that live in California have stated that they wish a massive earthquake would hit that entire state and disconnect it from the continental united states, forming a physical quarantine zone. Add Texas into that equation and lets get this party started!

    I have actually considered buying real estate near the San Andreas fault line for this reason.

    Don't worry people, this nonsense will never pass. It's hardly the first time they've tried to split CA into smaller states.

    Oh. Tell them that I thank them for their love and support. <3 /sarcasm

    I see no upside in this change... anyone care to enlighten ?

  9. Default Re: Californians Likely To Cast Votes On Splitting Into 6 States


    Democrats will get 10 more seats in the senate. It's a debateable upside.

  10. Default Re: Californians Likely To Cast Votes On Splitting Into 6 States


    I know of several Californians that are "unhappy" (and that is an understatement) with the way the state is heading - due to the taxes and the political representation. I'm not surprised at all to hear this.

    Well that's ten more people for big business to lobby so I guess the middle/underprivileged class has some upside in this.

    Democrats Upside: More seats in Senate
    Republicans Upside: Increased chance to get some of california's electoral vote if it can convince at least 1 of the 6 states to vote republican

  14. Default Re: Californians Likely To Cast Votes On Splitting Into 6 States


    I see this as likely to happen as Texas becoming its own country. (That was a thing, right?)

  15. Default Re: Californians Likely To Cast Votes On Splitting Into 6 States


    IIRC Texas is the only state that has the right to split up into smaller states. I don't know much about California politics or how the distribution of dem/rep is over there but it seems like a ploy to increase voting power towards a specific party. I wouldn't be surprised if this was backed by republicans trying to dilute and dismantle democrat votes, but again I'm just speculating.

    I can't see it passing, and if it does I see it having to go all the way through the supreme court.

    If they actually had creative names they would probably have far better chances.
