Sounds like an interesting idea that doesn't have a snowball's chance of happening.

I can't stop laughing at how ridiculous the boundaries are to exclude Los Angeles, which is one of the major anchors of Southern California. Humorous fantasy, but no legs. It does bring up the point that California is an extremely diverse state politically, which I think a lot of people forget. The inland empire is quite conservative.

It will be, in fact, the ONLY California left after "The Big One". Better be prepared for a far more conservative Cali then.

There's also the Jefferson state project, where several counties in northern CA and southern OR have banded together and also want to split to create a 51st state:
Jefferson - The 51st State - Northern California / Southern Oregon - A State of Mind

The first attempt to create the state of Jefferson goes back to 1941, however the movement started just before the attack on Pearl Harbor and the focus on the war derailed the attempt to create this new state. However, the Jefferson state project has recently started gaining new momentum.

I would support it. Being a resident of the State for 50+ years, I am sick and tired of the way it is run.
Sacramento and San Francisco are way too liberal and have a disproportionate level of power.
We are sick of passing laws, just to be overturned by biased and corrupt Judges in the North.

Isn't Fresno north of Los Angeles?

They could make Nancy Pelosi, Queen of North California. They'd probably spell it with a "K" too.

Cali is in Colombia



California, like Illinois, has lots and lots of people living under the oppressive thumb of liberalism. But Illinois nor California will split up, or Arizona for that matter. So while it's cute to think about it, in the end it's not controversial because it has about much chance of happening as me hitting the powerball jackpot
