California could split into multiple pieces


The movement to create the State of Jefferson dates back over 70 years. In 2013, County Supervisors in Siskiyou and Madoc Counties voted to secede from California.

Ethnically diverse societies only stay together when there is a dictator keeping everyone in line. The future of California is either totalitarianism or a breakup.

Last year two counties in Northern California voted to secede and form a 51st state. This is part of a movement by rural counties in Northern California and Southern Oregon State to form the State of Jefferson. However, they are not the only ones that want to split up California.

Across America, efforts to break up states are growing. When the 51st state is created, it could have domino effect across the nation. Dozens of regions will want to become a new state to protect their local interests.

The Six Californias Initiative will have a press conference on February 22nd.

A plan to divide California into six separate US states is closer to making it on to a November ballot, with organizers gaining approval to collect signatures.

 The seemingly far-fetched initiative, sponsored by Silicon Valley venture capitalist Tim Draper, claims “political representation of California’s diverse population and economies has rendered the state nearly ungovernable.”

And on Tuesday, the California Secretary of State’s office gave the movement a boost, saying that proponents “may begin collecting petition signatures.”

At least 807,615 voters — representing eight percent of the total ballots cast for governor in the 2010 election — will need to sign the petition by July 18 to make it on to the ballot.

The proposal aims to split the state — America’s most populous with around 38 million inhabitants — into “six smaller state governments, while preserving the historical boundaries of the various counties, cities and towns.”
