Plan to divide California into 3 new states clears first hurdle

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.

That plan failed.

Draper argues that citizens would be better served by three smaller state governments, rather than one large one.

The three-way split goes like this: Northern California would include the Bay Area all the way to the Oregon border, Southern California would begin in Fresno and cover most of the southern state.

A new California would begin in Los Angeles county and cover most of the coastal areas.

Opponents say the plan would create chaos. …

  1. I will support he creating of three new states. California is to large to have effective governance of the population. May areas are steamrolled by the progressive/communists in Saco. We are not represented yet are paying exorbitant taxes to fund the progressive /liberal/communist agenda. The state is failed, corrupt, and out of control.
    I probably wont stay to be part of it though because being at near retirement age, I don’t see how I can remain in Taxifornia and afford to live. Sad but the hard fact its I could can go to another state and make my retirement money go much further. Sure its beautiful here, we have to coast, we have the mountains and all the things that once made the state a special place, but with the Progressives/Communists running the state the value of all that was good is no longer reason to stay.

  2. The second Kalifornia would start in Fresno and cover the southern part of the State. That works for me as it includes most of the conservative voters of the State. The Bay area and LA coastal South will contain all of the liberals, exc ept how do we handle Orange County?

  3. The clown car that is Sacto & especially the “dueling billionaires” (Draper & Steyer) keep pumping out the hilarity…
    Just another gerrymandering exercise to keep the liberal hammerlock on Cali, but multiplied by three…
    Vote NO & don’t support the wealthy monkeys that keep flinging their excrement ideas against the proverbial wall…

    This is what I say http://www.uspca.us

  5. BS crap–do not need to break up the State –just remove the corruption and illegals –start by arresting baldy and his cronies if you want change–problem is people let these assholes in and have not done anything to remove them–need a NEW Governor -who is not corrupt–should have recalled pecker nose long ago

  6. The U.S. Constitution says that no state can be split unless they obtain more land.

  7. How about we go to a Representative Apportionment of our Primary and Electoral Votes, instead of the ‘winner take all’ scam that discounts the ballots of millions of California Voters?
    More Californians Voted Republican (and for the Donald) than the entire population of other states, and yet their were for naught.
    If these billionaires want to empower the people, let their votes count at a National Level the same way they do for different Congressional Districts.

  8. This will make Jerry eligible to run for Governor in the other two. Don’t think it hasn’t entered his mind.

  9. Right now California IS the 6th largest economy in the world, we won’t be if we’re sp!it in any way. We have a voice and power as long as we stay o e state VOTE NO!!!
