I was just watching a short video at :
And a question crossed my mind.
What do you do if the two "new states" are not admitted to the union? And how long can you hold out until it is admitted?
Just because a state decides to become two or three separate states does not automatically put more stars on the flag. Plus there will be a lot of new bureaucratic stuff to be taken care of for the recognition of these "new citizens" of these "new states". You would think a lot of this stuff would come about by the simple flip of a switch, but I will bet you a good payday it will not be quite so simple.
This could be something to think about.
There is absolute precedence for this with Virginia and West Virginia.

This is not an initiative to secede. This is an initiative two separate California into three separate states. There is absolute precedence for this with Virginia and West Virginia.

Sorry for my lack of knowledge.... what is driving the push to split the state? Is it purely politics?

I think this is the current split
What if one of the new States decides they want to have a socialist or communist govt. Would they even be allowed to enter the US as a State?
