    Kinda weird how they want to divide the state up. LA and SD in different states?

    No way the rest of the country will give California 4 more senators. Sorry, what a waste of time and money.

    San Diego in with the interior RED voters? Great idea. I still thing the suggestion for CA, OR and WA to secede to Canada is better.

    Another example of rich guy ≠ smart guy. Here's a quote from him: "With three states, we're going to be able to govern for the next millennial," Draper told the Associated Press in a video interview two weeks ago. "It's going to be awesome."

    The "next millennial"? OK Timmy.

    And he's shifty as fuck as to his motives. Spouts misinformation on his website. So Cal voters are not going to vote for this. Congress would never vote for it. He should spend his money on something actually worthwhile. What a dumbshit attention whore.

    I believe he misspoke. He meant to say "the last millenial".

    Remember, this is the state that elected Schwarzenegger governor.

    My guess is there's a packing-and-cracking strategy at play that explains how the borders were drawn, with the goal that the new senate seats created would break red.

    And the reason why he's still defending Theranos is because Draper lost what he invested in the company.

    He would've gotten away with it too, if it weren't for those meddling journalists!!!

Dixie and breadbasket could thump Bibles to their heart's delight and export to us. Empty quarter would probably be renamed EPIC quarter (and would be owned by Vail of course).

    So true. And people here have talked for decades about forming our own county, but it won't ever happen. Maybe the east side of the Sierra can take preemptive measures and join Nevada.

    could combine the dakotas to make room if it helps since they don’t have enough population anyway.

    happy to ship missouri, florida, texas to dear leader’s education camps to complete trump’s awesome noko peace deal.
    .....I hope you know that this will go down on your permanent record

    “Three states will get us better infrastructure, better education and lower taxes,” Tim Draper, the Silicon Valley venture capitalist who sponsored the ballot measure, said in an email to The Times last summer when he formally submitted the proposal. “States will be more accountable to us and can cooperate and compete for citizens.”
    Well shit.

    With that kind of reasoning, why not make every county its own state. Actually, instead of half-assing it, just make every residence its own state.

    As long as we can build a wall to keep all the traffic in LA, I'm ok with that. But they should have to take OC and Riverside as well. And the central valley.
