Go California!

Hell, I hope Colorado splits as well. Probably never happen but who knows... how many stars can we fit on the flag... LOL

SAN FRANCISCO -- A plan to split California into three separate states has cleared its first hurdle. Supporters are set to begin collecting signatures to qualify for next year's ballot.

The plan is being funded by Bay Area tech billionaire Tim Draper, who previously funded a similar proposal back in 2014 to divide the state up into sections.

It would make it easier in the long term for Mexico and the Cartels to completely reclaim (even more than they already have) Southern California.

California already is part of Mexico. The governor made California a sanctuary state, don't even know why they have a border.

Calexit would be amazing! It's such a huge economy all on its own they should have no problem whatsoever on their own. And it will be the liberal utopia dream land! Oh man, it would be the most successful, most fair, most diverse country ever in the history of mankind.

I pray for this to happen. Please!

If mankind can exist in modern prosperity with a total absence of electricity, fuel, and potable water, you'd be right... but they can't and California lacks the ability to be self sustaining where those 3 items are concerned. If Day 1 saw 'Calexit' then Day 2 should see disconnection of all interstate utility connections into California followed up by the US unceremoniously leaving boot prints on the narrow asses of every representative in DC hailing from California. Close out Day 2 with a huge party celebrating the aforementioned pain in ass' absence from American governance. Day 3 should see a massive import tax placed on anything entering the US from California. Day 4 should see the USA build that wall right up the Eastern border of California (and build that SOB high enough to keep the clouds of smug from escaping Cali while we're at it.) D

I hope they succeed with that. I know a few people in Northern California who would love to have that happen.

I assume that is sarcasm.

Not to mention all the tens of millions kalifornians that currently are sucking off the federal government teat.
One big disaster, (earthquake, flood, wildfire, etc.) Would have them begging to come back.

What would be the benefits of this happening in order for people to be all for it happening? Honest question.

Right now conservative voters in California are disenfranchised.

It would offer an opportunity for them to be represented.

This is one way for America to be free from the madness of Pelosi and the rest of Kalifornistan's loons in Congress.

Calexit is a dream of mine. It would be awesome if they would exit the U.S.

We could finally say goodbye to the liberal party.

Oh ok, well in that case we should break up every state into multiple ones since they all have disenfranchised voters based on the color of the state?

It would be more manageable. The state is too big and populous to run effectively. CA is really three distinct areas. You have Northern Cal / Silicon Valley. You have the inland agricultural area and you then you have southern cal (LA & hollywood). IIRC the proposals are essentially dividing the state up around those three main demographics and geography.

That makes much more sense than the "disenfranchised" thing. I could get behind that.

Why would you want to shun them rather than trade with them?
