    California has become more lawless than ever and outwardly defiant of our constitution. The more of a push there is to succeed from the US, the more a push there will be for dividing the state. Sure, doesn't seem likely that either will come to be, but we are living in strange times.

    Frankly a 2 or even 3 state solution would be a great solution to save the normal people in California.
    Can't we all just get along!

    No it wouldn't. Thankfully, this is something that Californians would decide, not people from outside the state who'd ordinarily be wishing for our demise.

    I think conservatives are a bit optimistic about a three-state partition. Given the sorry state of the Republican Party in California, you would most likely get two liberal states and one conservative state, if even that. Would conservative be happy with two or even four extra Democrats in the U.S. Senate?

    Good point. Since the population centers are at the coast, this plan would likely triple Dem senators.

    San Bernardino county would dominate the 3rd state.

    No.

    Don't you know anything?

    It's up to the Congress to approve any such split, and that approval will NEVER come.

    Trump has been President for 537 days and Ruth Bader Ginzberg hasn't had the decency to die. What's up with that?

    LBJ was a Democrat. I wish more Democrats could be like him. He's dead now.

    I'm in favor of Secession - I think it's the only way left to save our traditional protections of freedom - but not the Articles of Confederation.

    The Articles failed immediately. IMMEDIATELY.

    The Constitution worked for a hundred years, until, first, Lincoln ignored it; then the social engineers in the Fuddrel Kourts started tinkering with it. UNDO that tinkering; and put in term limits and taxation reform...and it will again work.

    But Washingtoon cannot be made to make it work. The Constitution can go forward, but only with those states that cut the cord to Imperial Washington.

    Um, it's a state ballot initiative. Only we Californians get to vote for or against it.




    ... BTW, Do you always foam at the mouth?
