Splitting California

Once again, a misguided soul in a position of power has proposed splitting California by designating most of SOCal as Southern California. It excludes LA, because LA is too liberal.

I agree California should be divided into two states, but it would make a lot more sense to split off Eastern California, with a jerrymander to include Orange County, because liberals tend to live on the coast, and conservatives inland.

Gov. Brown's office issued a statement that the proposal to split CA was ridiculous. Gov. Brown has his eyes closed. How can he live in conservative Sacramento beating his head against the party lines budget stalemate and not see what the problem is.

I grew up in the suburbs of NYC, and was amazed that the part of  NY which was not NYC was very conservative, but they were so badly outvoted by the part that was NYC there was never a hope to split the state. When I moved to WA, we learned all about why the Oregon Territories were split into two separate states, and it made some sense.
