Break-up of California moves a step closer as billionaire gets enough signatures

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

As if the referendum could actually pass. Billionaires need to stay out of Politics. See how much damage it has already done?

Bigger boundaries means more people being coerced to live a way they don’t agree with. It is always interesting how many people support bigger states also say they value freedom and democracy. Both aren’t true and the bigger boundaries is the winner of the two. The people who live in the US would be better off with smaller states and of course no federal government.

Apply that same thought to Texas.

Is anyone thinking about breaking up Texas?

Yes. Some should. Billionaire Tom Steyer kept the Keystone Pipeline from being approved for eight years, nearly causing Canadian producers to re-route their product to China. But it did help Warren Buffett make millions shipping oil by rail which is much more dangerous.


La Raza.

Of course, they want part or all of it to become part of either Mexico or a new country “Aztlan” which they’ll run, of course.

Still waiting on a reply.

You can of course cite a source for this claim?

I don’t care if the people of Texas want to break up Texas.

The people of California want to secede or break up.

The people of Texas are doing fine … except for the people of California who are moving to Texas!


There are many, many sources, and they’re easy to find. Here’s a couple:

A step away from my desk in the right direction is technically a step closer to Singapore, but I’m not going there anytime soon. Just alt-left extremists making their usual ruckus.

When I think about this issue, the first thing that comes to mind is the first line of Steven Sondheim’s lyric for the song “America” from West Side Story:

“Puerto Rico, my heart’s devotion –
Let it sink back in the ocean!”

The word “California” fits the music just fine, if you combine the 4th and 5th syllables into one. The big difference is that California is definitely not my “heart’s devotion”.


Once upon a time, there was a plan to break up California into six smaller states:

California has been the subject of more than 220 proposals to divide it into multiple states,[4] including at least 27 serious proposals.[5] Several of these attempts proposed the creation of a State of Jefferson that would span the contiguous, mostly rural area of southern Oregon and northern California.

600,000 people is not “California”. That is a drop in our population bucket.

Fringe groups and whackjobs have been trying to break California up for decades. This isn’t going to pass. And if it does, it would create a state and federal Constitutional crisis that would go nowhere.
No mention of Aztlan
You’re posting something from a “BLOG”.
You gotta do better than that. Give us something legit like Faux News.
And this one is blocked here at work. Makes it even more suspect.

And I remember during the Obama years, Texas and Oklahoma were trying to pass legislation to succeed from the Union. All were efforts ended up being a waste of taxpayers money.

You probably just have an over-zealous IT department. My workplace has blocked some of its own college pages on accident before.

I strongly agree with this statement.
