Be better if the blue states and red states went their separate ways.
Everything south of Santa Maria should become the state of South California. We should make the new state capital Ventura, it has a cool city hall building with a sort of dome and pillars—to use as a capital building. It would be out of the urban problems of LA. South Californians are laid back, we talk different, we are a different breed. We tend to be more conservative even if we have pockets of liberalism. Let Jerry Brown have his North California and her failed policies and high taxes. They have been talking about breaking the state in half since the days when Mexico owned it. I say the people of South California should unilaterally declare ourselves the 51st State.
