Interesting goal

This surprised me:

He added that the Orange County couple’s ultimate goal is an initiative to divide California into two states – one of which would recognize the fundamental right of gays and lesbians to marry.

I’ve heard, many times, that most of California, geographically, is pro-gun. If they could just get rid of the big population centers the place would be politically tolerable. It seems both sides (I acknowledge not all gays are anti-gun, but there is a strong correlation) want a divorce.

California having such a huge population has a large influence on great number of things nationwide. Presidential elections might be the most obvious but there are thousands of other things as well. The contents of school books, safety standards, air pollution standards, and even gun laws that first show up in California have a nasty habit of spreading to other states. If there were two states where their used to be only one that influence would diminish.

I wonder what we can do to encourage such a separation.

  1. I’m all for Nevada and Arizona annexing everything in CA except for a narrow coastal corridor running from San Fran down to San Diego. I wish we could get Maryland to do the same with Washington D.C. so we wouldn’t have to hear them all cry about not having a Senator or Representative anymore as well.

  2. While we’re at it, why not Eastern Washington, Northern Idaho, and Western Montana becoming one state?

  3. Wouldn’t work for Nevada unless you could deport 98%+ of the idjits that moved here from Kali over the last 25 years and immediately started complaining why things weren’t the same as back home…and voting to make it so![:>(

  4. “I wonder what we can do to encourage such a separation.”

    Comet strike or Earthquake, though the earthquake thing they have managed before, so that would have to be bigger than they are used to. Once California is an Island we might be able to have some influence.

    Choked on my meal.

  6. Geographically, California is big enough to divvy up into several entities. You just need to tick off the various boxes for multiple combinations. Let’s see, where to the Hispanic, lesbian, pro-gun folks move to, as opposed to the white, straight, libs?

  7. We don’t need to divide-up California, the Left has already done that with Identity Politics divide-and-conquer tactics. What they’re trying to do here is create a wedge-issue that’s divisive in Orange County, an area long held to be notoriously conservative and capitalistic – a region of wealth creators hated by the Left.
    Meanwhile in a flanking maneuver the Eco-Weenies are busy trying to kill the Central Valley Kulaks and their crops by an artificial, man-made, regulatory drought. They’re using legalese in the Endangered Species Act to favor the smelt and to deny water to producers in the valley. Thousands are now out of work and produce prices are expected to climb – but the Delta smelt is not now and never was endangered. The Valley is the heartland-flyover region the Left hates because it contains the farmers, gun-owners, church-goers and redneck middle-America of California.

  8. Water is the problem.

    Politically dividing the state would be a roughly North/south line more or less the length of the state.

    The Coastal part would by liberal. The Central Valley and Sierra Nevada Mountains would be conservative (well for Californian anyway). South of the Tehachapi (sp?) Mountains gets a bit messier – Orange County in particular.

    BUT, the problem is water. The coast wants to swim in it, water their lawns with it, protect the smelt with it and poop in it. The eastern part of the state knows that water means FOOD.

    The western part is too stupid to let the eastern part do what is needed to provide for both.
