    seems like an odd way to divide the state. Why not just 3 even chunks?

    FUCK the new NorCal. I don't want those fucking asshole Bay Area people in my state. I don't want their bullshit politics in NorCal.

    I want the State of Jefferson. Tons of counties already have voted to become The State of Jefferson.

    This is the answer. It is entirely constitutional as some states already do it. It could be implemented within a matter of months were every state legislature willing.

    Sort of like Gerrymandering. It's drawn that way for a reason and it was drawn by a republican.

    LMAO! Fucking Bay Area is like an open-air mental assylum that nobody wants.

    Anyway, this idea of 3 Californias will never fly, because ain't nobody with elementary knowledge about this state's history would want a Water War 2

    What do you mean economically or constitutionally possible for a conservative to live in California?

    Agriculture would be huge. Wine industry would be huge. Marijuana industry would become largest in the world. Combine wine tourism + cannabis tourism, and then tourism becomes a massive economic industry. Lets not forget the Giants Redwoods. Also the Sierra Nevada mountain range provides amazing skiing and Lake Tahoe. Furthermore, there are other natural resources like a massive timber industry.

    Also, Nevada, Oregon and Texas are pulling tons of businesses out of California with easier regulations, rules and taxes. Jefferson would be built on values similar to Texas. It would be all about small government, less regulation and it would be massively pro business. This would draw all sorts of businesses out of the other parts of California and pull back lots of productive people that had to leave California.

    Meth is also a major export.

    I'm all for self-governance, and better local rule.

    That being said, I don't support changing the American flag from the thrifty nifty fifty United States.

    So these new California states have to either tolerate not being represented with a star on the flag.

    Or

    They have to convince either North and South Dakota to now become "Dakota", or Virginia and West Virginia to now become "Virginia", or North and South Carolina to now become "Carolina". They would have to pull off any two of those three options. ;):D

    all of those combined dont make a dent on California tax revenue, and the tech industries of the Bay and Silicon Valley are synergistically helping "Jefferson" thrive. Without it, you're basically Oregon. Which isn't terrible, but a downgrade from current living conditions.

    I think it would need Congressional approval. So, essentially yes.
