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?
