California will presumably collapse into the Pacific Ocean by 2042.

Or should I say Californias.

What a god damn joke.

Split up Oregon and make a separate state from Medford/Grants Pass to the Chico and Mendocino Forest areas.

splitting cali into 6 states would give cali 12 senators.

that would totally unbalance the senate and gave liberals dominance in the country. I would be ok with this, but it hardly seems fair.

You realize splitting would give you more power right?
2 senators per state regardless of population
and the electoral college is biased towards smaller states.

Also for the record the only state in the union with the unilateral right to split itself without federal approval is texas.

texas has a weird clause that allows it to split into 5 states if it wishes.

I am not that familiar with cali politics, but I thought dems were pretty dominant in that state?

Also even if they leaned republican there is a difference between a north eastern republican (Eg. Romney, Giuliani, Christie, etc) and a deep south or midwest republican (Demint, Santorum, Ted Cruz, John Cornyn, etc) . I am sure that same applies for california.

On actual social issues, like gun rights, abortion, gay rights, etc. they differ a lot. Eg schwarzenegger was actually quite liberal by national standards.
