A new push to divide the Golden State in two could make Southern California the 51st state.

"Our state legislature that is supposed to be making laws and being respected, imposes laws that aren't even lawful," Riverside County Supervisor Jeff Stone told Los Angeles ABC station KABC-TV. "So I think our state is California gone wild."

The current secession proposal would include the counties of Riverside, San Bernardino, Imperial, San Diego, Orange, Kings, Kern, Fresno, Tulare, Inyo, Madera, Mariposa and Mono, and have a population of 13.07 million people. The remaining state of California would have 24.18 million.

I'm not sure how you derived "mexifornia" from that. Unless I misread it myself, it looks like more of a 10th Amendment sort of thing only intrastate. A healthy thing actually.

they've talked about doing it for years. wouldn't be a bad idea, Northern CA is much more conservative than southern anyway

no secret. drugs and crime have driven taxpayers out. there goes the tax base. gotta make it up some how. so give it to mexico. they own it anyway.

and pislosi will gladly wack off their water. she needs it for her fish project. which has turned N Cal into a waste land costing thousands of jobs.

CA is a model of what happens to a state when democraps take over.

The real political division in California is a north-south boundary, not an east-west. The western third of the state is Democratic and the eastern 2/3rds is Republican.

Over half of the population of the US lives within 50 miles of the coast, so it's reasonable to assume this is true of California.

NJ actually had a vote similar back in the 80's and it passed. It went nowhere.

New Jersey isn't a Southern State. And the "Yankee" state is the best state of them all.

South Jersey believes that the state leaders ignore South Jersey and they're right. Most funding goes north to places like Newark, Jersey City, and the like. Most of the revenue from the casinos was getting funneled north. South Jersey wanted to split and run it's own.
