    san fran ruins it for them.

    Why not just make the cities their own states?

    Making San Francisco a city state *might* not be a bad idea. Could have it's advantages.

    This is the new map that the county supervisor is proposing.



    According to him-- Riverside, San Diego, Orange, San Bernardino, Imperial, Kings, Kern, Fresno, Tulare, Inyo, Madera, Mariposa and Mono counties are the ones to make up the South California state.

    More Liberal places like San Francisco and Los Angeles will be part of the North.

    I see. I know a few people in NoCal that would be very disappointed to be lumped in with 'Frisco and LA. Maybe they should split in East/West instead... from what I'm hearing the interior is more conservative while most of the coast is lib. Just a thought.


    Of course, I don't think there's more than 1% chance of this happening. Isn't there something in the Constitution about states not being split into more states? (I'll have to get my copy out and look I guess....)

    Re: County Supervisor in California proposes splitting up the golden state!

    My family has almost moved to Cali twice and we have family from there. It seems that the larger cities (with the exception of San Diego) are very liberal. San Francisco and LA are both large liberal cities. Northern cities like Redding and cities in the valley are far more conservative. I would support splitting California into two different states. It's large as it is, the political scene is very polarized, and if the people support it then I see no problem with it.

    None of the actual Northern Californians refer to the city as "Frisco". It's only the tourists who do so.

    It's not, but I think the point was trying to stack the senate with Dems. I don't think it would be necessary to include Sanfran with the rest of northern Cali. They are political opposite and SanFran really has no business being clumped in with them if they are wanting to divide the state. It would be like dividing Texas into 4 states and ensuring that 8 more Senate Republicans get elected. I can't support gerrymandering with state lines.
