Should CA Split Into 6 States?
I could not wait to publicize this debatable issue.
A prominent capitalist has been authorized by the Secretary of the State of CA to muster signatures of voters for a petition to split CA into 6 independent states. The petition will qualify for a ballot (Congressional?). His main reason is: "CA has become nearly ungovernable because of recent social and economic changes".
Details in insert below.
I see many CONS against the split, mostly financial, such as the ff:
  • Taxes in each state created will dramatically increase to finance initial expenses, e.g., salary, housing, benefits, travels, misc. expns. for the governor and leaders of various state departments/bureaus, their staff and personnel; procurement, construction, rents of state buildings for the aforementioned; state vehicles; and so forth, etc., etc.
  • On the on-going state, maintenance of the state government created will be financed inevitably as never before
  • The CONS do not stop at the state level but continue down to the local governments that will be created and maintained for each state
  • On the on-going basis, property and income taxes will be disturbed for the worse
  • New projects will surely emerge, as never before, for financing
  • New taxes of all sorts will surely be levied or collected
  • There will be new fees for basic necessities such as water, gas, light, sewer, garbage collection etc.   
  • New state rules and regulations will be enforced as never before
  • Miscellaneous changes will be implemented, e.g., license plates, telephone area code, ZIP code, zones, etc. 
  • Citizens of each independent state created will be laden with financial burdens of all sorts as never before 
  • This will be a monumental endeavor
  • The land of CA will be divided into 6 kingdoms as it were
This blog is especially open to comments PROS or CONS, relevant or jokes

I think this would cost more for the Calif. public as well as the complete Country in the long run! When it comes to National elections! Why 6 States? Is there a person that put this together has friends that want a piece of $$$? Whomever thought this has a few bricks short of a brick wall!!!

It is pretty impossible to find one honest politician. I shudder to think of 4 times the corruption.

Thank you all for the comments.

The petitioner is a wealthy and influential capitalist.

To avoid being personal, I skipped to mention the name. His emphasis is to bring the government close to the public.

We all have the same thought on this matter. Splitting CA will only mean multiplying their problems and financial burdens.
