Yes! Split California in Two

John Seiler:

Riverside County Supervisor Jeff Stone advocates something I long have backed: Split California in two.

Let Gov. Jerry “Jobs Killer” Brown, the nutty Democratic Legislature, the government employee unions and others following the North Korean political philosophy have their own state. Then they can raise taxes and impose new regulations to their dark hearts’ content.

And let those of us who favor low taxes and small government have our own state. Like New Hampshire, we would have no income or sales tax, and little state regulation.

The PI reported:

Stone proposed late Thursday that Riverside County take the lead in pushing for 13 counties to secede from the state.

Fed up with high taxes and continued raids on local government funds, Stone said the counties of Riverside, Imperial, San Diego, Orange, San Bernardino, Kings, Kern, Fresno, Tulare, Inyo, Madera, Mariposa and Mono should form the new state of South California.

“We have a state Legislature that has gone wild. They just don’t care. Their goal was to get a balanced budget so they could continue to get a paycheck,” Stone said by telephone late Thursday. “There is only one solution: A serious secession from the liberal arm of the state of California. I know the state of California can do better.”

Right on!

Splitting the state up actually was an idea strongly supported by Gov. Brown — that is, the first one who built the state, Pat Brown, rather than the second one, Jerry Brown, who’s tearing it down. Pat Brown wrote a book on the subject.

Actually, splitting the state in two would be just a start. We need three, four, ten, many Californias.

    Speaking for myself and my friends after 40 years of living in Cally, this state is too big for its own good. We are in the North State and have wanted to seceed forever. This state could easily be cut into thirds and true representation just might be possible then. The sooner the better!

    I’m with John! Split the state!

    The Bay Area would be named Northern Taxifornia and LA would be named Southern Taxifornia.

    The rest can be split into separates states.

    And if John can help get this done I’d vote for him for governor of one of the new states. And that state could be called Seilerfornia or Seileria or Seilerville.

    Today Cawleefornia (as Ahnode calls it) is too big and is ungovernable.

    First lets bring Sheriff Apiao from Arizona as lead consultant on Security. Then bring in Herman Cain consultant for Business, Trade, and General Commerce. Then Tom McClintock for Government Operations. And finally Rudy for Wholesale Political Housekeeping!
