Forgot to mention the attempted succession of the Valley from LA to form a new city. It passed in the Valley itself but unjustly it needed the approval Los Angeles at large and of course it was thus voted down. The left in LA didn’t wanna lose those taxpayers, that’s the same reason Chicago would never let the Republican suburbs leave Cook County. I believe in local self determination, they shouldn’t have a say. Separating normal people from urban democrat sheep as much as possible would be great for the country.
I think the word you’re looking for is “secession,” not “succession.” : )
It was just last month that a county commissioner from Riverside or something proposed creating a State of Southern California from Orange, San Diego, Imperial, Riverside and San Bernadino Counties. As you may remember, I would prefer splitting CA into 5 states, 2 of them heavily Democrat (one comprising LA County, and the other running from the Bay Area to Monterey County) and 3 GOP-leaning states of about 11 EVs each (one in Orange, San Diego and Imperial Counties, another in the Inland Empire and Ventura, and a third in the Central Valley all the way north to the Oregon border). If the Valley succeeds in seceding from LA County, it can join the Inland Empire GOP-leaning state.
