Could We Get 55 States In The Union?! This Plan Could Literally Change All U.S. Maps Forever!

Could California be broken into six states?

It could if Tim Draper gets his way. The venture capitalist is pushing for a ballot initiative that would break the Golden State into six smaller states! He says:

"Vast parts of our state are poorly served by a representative government…

[They] would be better served by six smaller state governments."

Mr. Draper thinks California is so big it's ungovernable. He makes an interesting point. Not even Governator Arnold Schwarzenegger was able to fix the state's financial problems.

But does the measure have a chance of passing? It seems unlikely, especially given that proud, voting Californians will be asked to concede that their state is a failure. Political analyst Matt David says:

"California is as diverse geographically as it demographically, but ultimately we all take pride in the fact that we are Californians. Diluting that identity between six states will never happen."

Besides, all those maps would have to be redrawn, and we'd have to figure out how it would affect the national election process. It sounds pretty complicated.

And seeing as it takes months of paperwork to put in a backyard pool, we're guessing it won't be happening any time soon.

    This is old news and will never happen.

    Re: fcbord – Not only old news, but has been proposed, and tried many many times before.
    The peoples republic of commiefornia wont change.
    Too many fucking hypocrites, and too many self obsessed assholes who thinks the world evolves around them, and not to mention all their fans, who would do anything to be like them.
    Remember rock the vote this last time? Celena Gomez is gonna tell me, a grown man who has been around the block too many times, since way before she was nothing but a glint in the eye of the man who sodomized her mom, what to vote, cos she knows?

    It's disgusting to even talk about wanting to do this.

    I live in a suburb of LA and this has been proposed before a couple of times ( usually from people who want to split NorCal and SoCal). This is not going to happen, guarantee you.

    Re: Fuckerman – Its crazy how people that do not live in California always like to talk shit about the state. People do not want to be judge because they are different but still think that its ok to pass judgment on to others. Just because you see certain things in movies or tabloids does it mean that everyone in CA is the same way. Grow up little kid

    Re: Fuckerman – How OLD are you? Whipping out 'commie' when someone has a different view is, well, commie…plus they haven't been Soviet Russia since 1991.
