And just like the split up California movement, it will just wither in the vine.

And how could it succeed?

The dems have power and everything comes down to a vote.

Doesn’t wither.

It never gets to grow at all to begin with.

Too stupid to realize all that will result is two more RAT Senators.
The GOP needs to stand for the American People and stop with doing RAT-Lite

Too bad they could split NY up and California and let the liberal portions become satellite countries of Venezuela.

Where does the NYS Republican Party stand on this? Oh that’s right, NY doesn’t have an organized GOP state party.

Not necessarily. Here's a map of the results of the 2016 elections:



The Redder and more pinkish the region, the more Trump got the votes. The more bluish and Darker bluish the region the more Hillary got the votes.

As you can see, New York City (what the proposal calls the EMPIRE REGION ) OVERCAME the rest of the state by the sheer size of its population.

I live in an extremely red county!!
If NY splits into two or three parts, that one rat better watch out! For all we know, maybe, just maybe manhattan will turn red!!

Carve off New York City and let it drift out to sea...

Barry Goldwater suggested this in 1963.

Nassau and Westchester are too dependent on NYC to be separated. Suffolk might work, especially if its towns became counties. It is not the bedroom community Nassau is. One upstate entity is doomed. Schenectady, Rochester and Johnson City are very different. Though it would be interesting if the Southern Tier could allow fracking.

When I look at that map, it appears the New York City and Montauk portions are New York State’s butt.

Maybe I see it that way because I live in Central New York and have developed a contemptous attitude toward liberal downstate.

Evacuation plans for Long Island tend to be amusing reading-—if you have a very dark sense of humor. :-(

Downstate IL and interior CA are heavily GOP.

Democrats aren’t going to agree to that and an upstate NY proposal for one reason.

It would dilute their power. Such splits will happen when pigs can fly.
