Somewhere in there is an idea that I like. Maybe it's time that the blue counties and red counties went their separate ways.

I’ve said many times that the albatross would be lifted from our necks if we could somehow boot San Fran, LA, and San Jose out of the Union.

This I would LOVE to see happen. Cali needs to be split. Reduce the power of LA/Frisco libs and the problem practically solves itself.

Bet the idea would have the support of every red state in congress too.

I have proposed that several states split for years. Western Pennsylvania should secede from Philadelphia and that area, Eastern Washington should secede from Seattle/Tacoma, Eastern Oregon from Portland, and several other states dominated by a large city full of liberals and unions.

Be better if the blue states and red states went their separate ways.

Florida, too. Northern Florida is very different from South Florida. And eastern NC is very different from WNC.

If this happens, I’d seriously considering moving back to SoCal.

The left will prove how indispensable conservatives are to their very existence by ridiculing and fighting this.

I understand the desire, but I have to point out that Counties don't have the standing to succeed from states. States succeeded from the Union because they are/were sovereign states who joined the union. Counties are not sovereign, they were formed BY the State.

Sorry, I hope my legal OCD doesn't put a damper on things!

The nine Marxist Bay Area counties would be dead in a week if Eastern California counties cut off their water and hydro generated electricity.

California's largest economic product is agriculture, and the nine produce only part of the wine production and little else.

In San Bernardino County, everything north of the Cajon Pass
into the new state it’s red to light red and the area to the south is a liberal solid blue POS.

Counties can secede from a State, but it's very difficult (see Article IV, Section 3, Clause 1).

I don't think you would love to see this happen. We would have 4 liberal senators instead of 2. We would have two liberal states instead of one. LA/SF is liberal but so are other large areas of the state. Don't assume that these are the only liberal areas. The disease is widespread throughout the state. Sacramento is also very liberal and San Diego is getting more liberal all the time.

Anyway it's not gonna happen. Southern California cannot survive without Northern California Water so this is much to do about nothing.

Too bad it would never happen I for one would move to San Diego in a heart beat. I bet big business would want to return to Cal (souther Cal).
