The wait is almost over. California could become three separate states which would be a massive dent in the Democrats chances to win a super number of votes in future elections.
A proposal to divide California into three states will be on the November statewide ballot, where voters will get to decide on the measure.
Any and all Republicans should vote for this. Why? It will fragment the state in such a way as to make the “California” section the blue stronghold while the other two would be mostly red. This would be absolutely devastating to the Democratic machine.
#BREAKING: The proposal to divide California into three separate states will be on the state's ballot this November.

If a majority of voters who cast ballots agree, a long and contentious process would begin for three separate states to take the place of California, with one primarily centered around Los Angeles and the other two divvying up the counties to the north and south. Completion of the radical plan — far from certain, given its many hurdles at judicial, state and federal levels — would make history.
It would be the first division of an existing U.S. state since the creation of West Virginia in 1863.
“Three states will get us better infrastructure, better education and lower taxes,” Tim Draper, the Silicon Valley venture capitalist who sponsored the ballot measure, said in an email to The Times last summer when he formally submitted the proposal. “States will be more accountable to us and can cooperate and compete for citizens.”
California was initially supposed to be several states. But under the pressures of the Civil War, the Union decided to take a big chunk of the West coast and make it a state, mostly to garner support and resources for the Civil War. They were fast-tracked to statehood and did not follow any of the steps normally needed.
The idea to break the state up has been around for a very long time, and hopefully this time it goes through. I would love to see it split up and take the 9th circuit court with you.
Do you think California should split into three sections? Do you think the Democrats have ruled it for far too long? What are the benefits? SHARE your voice below in the comments section.
