A report from ABC News says there's a proposal in California to split the state into six separate states. It recently got the green light from the state's Secretary of State.
Now, will it go anywhere? Probably not. But should it?
On the one hand, the idea of six Californias is scary. One is plenty bad enough. But six?
On the other hand, the thought of taking an axe to that state and cutting it into small pieces is attractive.
Okay, some of you may live in California, and not appreciate either sentiment. But really, it's your own fault for living there. There are 49 other states, some of them that actually don't suck, that you could live in. Or, you could stay there and actually do take it from the crazy liberals that are running the shoe. But, you've done neither. So, when people trash California, you gotta take some of the blame.
Anyway, breaking up California. Crazy idea?
It's been done before. Kind of. Maine was actually part of Massachusetts until 1820. Go look it up.
West Virginia was the part of Virginia that didn't secede during the War Between The States. It was given its own status as a state 1863.
So, yeah, breaking a state up has been done before. But still, should California be broken up? Or should other states be broken up?
I won't be broken up about it. What about you? What do you think?
