    Las Tres Californias

    CA voters will decide in November whether to split the state into three new states. This is complete lunacy.

    We were just talking about this. Could be a boost for republicans. Southern would likely be red and northern possibly red.

    Might get more complicated when CA starts floating out to sea
    Just like 2012 or San Andreas, right?

    6 Senators if DC wouldn't flip out, but would chop up the 55 College votes.

    The 3 state proposal is ridiculous but carving off the eastern ends of Nevada, Placer, and El Dorado Counties to create a new Tahoe County would make sense to me.

    They don't vote in a bloc now. You'd still have the same amount of representatives per capita as before. The 6 senators vs. 2 actually makes some sense, but then NY and TX would follow suit.

    Forcing them into desalination would be a positive IMV.

    Think of the junk show Brexit currently is, this would be 100x worse. Like Brexit, allowing something of this magnitude to be decided by a simple majority vote is insane.

    It'd have to be voted on by congress.

    No kidding. I want no part of any state containing the bay area or Sac. Pretty sure the rest of what would be Nor Cal feels the same way.

    Malcom Gladwell has a really interesting podcast about how Texas could split into 4 states; without the approval of Congress (unless congress could retract the approval prior to Texas executing the vote to split).

    Who is going to pay for the replacement of all the new flags? 4 rows of 13 doesn't look as impressive.

    It's Nevada City, Auburn, and Placerville making decision for the summit and east slope that has me riled--especially Auburn. The sole criteria for Placer County planning decisions is whether it makes money for Placer County--the will of the locals be damned.

    This is the brain child of the same asshole who is still saying that his daughter’s childhood friend who scammed and defrauded people out of hundreds of millions is “a great icon” and a victim of a “witch hunt.”

    Fucking VCs.

    Idk, kind of hope this goes through. Didn't think California could become much more of a joke than it already is opcorn:

    The three states of California makes perfect sense! We'd then have Northern California, Southern California, and North Mexico. !Ole!

    Electoral college needs to go. I was on the fence. This tears it.

    52 stars would look weird on the flag. No way it'll happen.
