CA should be split along a meridian, into east and west.

Although I don't advocate it, here is an interesting blog about Texas being broken up into several states and the political ramifications of the news states

I think the Four Corners region of AZ, CO, NM & UT could become its own state; much of it is already a soverign nation as part of one or another Indian Reservation.

Appalachia from northern AL/GA all the way up through WV could become its own state based on people, culture, etc...

I think Long Island and the boros and maybe westchester should seperate themselves from the rest of the state. We are nothing like them and most of the state's revenue comes from the lower part of the state.

Definitely agree with you on Pennsylvania. The cultures between the East and Central/West are vastly different, not in a good or bad way just different. Politicians have often called Pennsylvania "Pittsburgh and Philadelphia with Alabama in between". It seems that Philly is constantly fighting with the state on mass transit funding, gun control, education and many minor issues. It seems that the state just wishes Philly would separate already and join New Jersey

Split NY along roujte 84. NY city, Long island, Westchester County etc being one state and everything north and west the other. Only one county would be split up.

Southern Cal is quickly becoming Mexico so we might think about selling it back for a few billion? At least then the current Illegals would keep pushing North.
