    I say we dump everything west of the Coast Range going north up to and including San Francisco, and everything south of the Tehapis, and make a new state out of the rest. Anyone with me?

    It would be a red state, BTW.

    Heh, my grandmother was all over that last. I think NorCal could almost make it on it's own if it didn't have to support SoCal. They get hit pretty hard by drought though and have to come begging us for water from time to time. They'd have to put in a few more dams for the electricity.

    The next tectonic shift may take care of that for you.

    Well, if I were in my 20s/early 30s again I'd move up that way in a heartbeat.

    Many are.

    Forget Toronto, however, since we're becoming too much like failed liberal America - it's like an infectious disease, you know. But head west or east and there's lots of opportunity for pretty much anyone with ambition.

    When I lived in NoCal I advocated splitting the state and cutting off SoCal's water. We would always have plenty of water if we didn't have to ship so much south.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    I still support southern Mexifornia splitting off of northern California. But there would be a color clash with L.A. County being so blue surrounded with so much red.

    There is already a movement in the northern counties of California forming their own state because the liberal and Mexican socialist in Sacramento who only care about Mexican nationals and L.A. and San Francisco.

    What I would like seeing a new state being formed that include only the counties of San Diego, Orange County, San Bernardino, Riverside County, Imperial County.

    Another scenario, option #2. Every coastal county going north from Los Angeles County to Marin County becoming a separate socialist state. Let them drink desalinated sea water.

    Option 3 #. Maybe the best one of them all. Build a wall around Los Angeles County and San Francisco and declaring both mental penal colonies. We could deal with Oakland and Marin County separately.

    You are aware anything west of the "coast range" is the Pacific Ocean.
