    County Supervisor in California proposes splitting up the golden state!

    Stone is leading the charge. He is proposing 13 Southern California counties secede from the state, dividing California into a north and south region.

    I think it could be a good idea for both sides (conservative and liberal). Each will have their own state government. The more liberal North California will have an easier time getting what they want on social issues like gay marriage. The more conservative South California can have a state with their own ideas for taxes ect.

    I just started a thread sort of on the same subject. What if they not only didn't want to be part of California anymore, but America as well?

    Sure they would. You just need to tell them they are “wraps”.

    i was born here and have to say that West California is over run with illegals and Mexicans already. The three largest cities are sanctuary's for illegals gays and law breakers of all kinds.


    I would vote to form a new State and wa6tch the liberals kill themselves off.


    I was born in San Bernardino and raised in San Diego by Conservative Democrats who taught me to think for my self and I have been a life long Republican, who went to school here when California was number one in education and is now # 49.


    I welcome that possibility of a change because I live in a Conservative County and the lines of the New State suit me fine.


    It's not about Race it's about policy and I want illegals out.


    If they were a positive they would be making changes at home not wrecking this State.

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

    I would strongly support something like this. The truth is that California has gotten too big to be run like a state; its population is greater than that of many countries. I think California should be at least four states: Northern California (including SanFran/Silicon Valley), the interior, the LA metro area, and the rest of SoCal.

    I think each of those regions would do better economically and politically if it didn't face gridlock from the others. And even if they didn't, at least the problems wouldn't metastasize to the rest of California.

    I don't claim to know much about California, but isn't that backwards? I would've thought NoCal was more conservative that SoCal.
