A proposed ballot initiative would split California into six states, with Solano County part of North California, running from the Sonoma-Marin coast to Lake Tahoe.

    Although I like the theory of splitting California, can you imagine the logistics of it and the costs? All the state agencies to divide up, the State employees, the State buildings, etc. The list goes on. A Daily Republic article mentioned we get all the State buildings in Sacramento in a split. Well would we? Those buildings belong to the entire state now, so does North California just get to keep them all in a split? Those are the kind of nightmares that trying to split the state would cause. Now maybe splitting in two wouldn't be bad, but not six.

    All this is, is another Republican attempt at gerrymandering to try to get more of their people elected. Nothing more. They can't get voting restrictions passed to alienate progressive voters here like they did elsewhere so came up with this lame idea.

    Jimbo Do you mean by requiring people to show an id to prove they are who they say they are before they vote is gerrymandering.

    Let’s divide it into 3 states the democrats go to their half the republicans go to their half and the tea party to their half and let’s see who can get most of the business to follow them. Democrats you will get the unions (no jobs) but the unions

    Care to point out any union ever existing without jobs? I thought not. In the conservative world they want to take America back to 80 hour work weeks with no benefits and child labor.

    The man behind the idea of splitting California was George W Bush's point man in the Silicon Valley. Nuff said.

    Meanwhile, Jerry Brown and his merry band of Liberals in Sacramento are more concerned about plastic bags being used at grocery stores, bullet trains, and genderless bathrooms in the CA public schools. All the while, the jobless are begging on the streets. Typical Liberal CA Twilight Zone.

    We do not need to spilt california into 6 states i like the idea of 3 states North,central and south. We also have to have voter reform where you need to show an id to prove who you are before you vote. That way we can eliminate a lot of the voter fraud. But this i liberal california and i do not think it will happen

    The idea for 6 divisions is preposterous and any half-wit knows it aint gonna happen. There was some talk about dividing North and South some time ago and that appeared feasible though unpopular. I believe if it came down to an actual event, where to make the divide would be the ultimate question. But no worries, that aint gonna happen either.
