Exclusive: Break-up of California moves a step closer

Exclusive: Break-up of California moves a step closer as billionaire gets enough signatures to trigger vote
12 April 2018
he chance of California splitting into three has moved a step closer after a billionaire secured enough signatures to trigger a referendum on the issue.

Tim Draper, who made his money through Hotmail and Skype, has gathered 600,000 signatures supporting the change – way above the 364,000 needed.

Those who want to break up California believe it would boost educational standards and reduce the political power of Sacramento, the state’s capital.

Providing the state authorities agree the signatures are genuine a referendum on the issue will be held this November alongside other mid-term elections. (more here)

Ha ha ha, I just talked to a person that moved from that crap state 3 weeks ago, she said it was just too scary to live there anymore. She said she wouldn't dare go to the local 7-11 store after 6 pm. just plain too unsafe.
I just hope the small communist part that is left would have a huge wall to keep all the ____________ in.

California has a population of approx 40,000,000, but this one lady's hearsay has me convinced. #-o

Why can't we simply sell California to the Chinese and use the proceeds to pay off our national debt?

You're kidding, right? :roll: That shithole full of illegals on welfare and liberal/progressive/socialist/commie pieces of shit in the southern end isn't worth a wooden nickle IMHO.

I'd bet that if Transam was 20 years younger he wouldn't still be there either!! Just too damn hard for us old ppl to pull up those old roots and move. With Virginia turning bluer after every election in recent years, I'd be in Texas now if I was 50!

I'm not really one for Eminent domain especially where you live, but in the case of apartments, I say that no one other than a city or government should be able to own them. Reason, its proven the greed ratio is too high, this is one case that eminent domain should be used nation wide. Rent control is needed. Not everyone makes a top wage and they need a place to live. If not that then all vacant gov lands need to be open to homesteading only for people that make under a certain amount and can not afford taxes and housing such as fixed income retirees etc.

Yeah Tom, I know what you mean, kinda. I've got one daughter from my first marriage and my Darling Wife has 3, ie, 2 boys and a girl. We both have 3 grandchildren and we live in a house that's paid for on a 10 acre wooded lot out in the county. Love it, but, don't love those liberals. If it wasn't for her, I would have moved to Texas a while back!

We lucked out and Republicraps wound up keeping control of the Legislature by ONE VOTE in the last election but didn't win the Governor's spot.........................again! So the Legislature passes a bill last week outlawing sanctuary cities in Virginia, and that piece of shit governor, northam VETOED IT! Northern Va and the Tidewater area from Petersburg East are full of blacks, illegals and yankees now so there's NO chance a Republicrap will win as Governor any time soon and it's not likely that a Republicrat will ever win the state in a Presidential election.

Just call me "Stuck In Virginia!" :(

what the retards in california dont grasp is that if they actually succeed in splitting the state, it is no longer california and there is no guarantee either half would be accepted as a state. could become a territory.
