County Supervisor Proposes 51st State Cut Out of Southern California –

Heh. It’s getting ugly in the People’s Democratic Republic of California….. it’s like people are getting tired of living under neath the ever watchful eye of nanny-state progressive big government types or something….

    It’s a nice publicity stunt, but that’s as far as it’ll get. SoCal gets all their water from NorCal, there’s no way the southerners will ever give 100% control of that over to someone else. Initiatives aiming to split the state show up every so often on the ballot, usually initiated by the north, but each one always gets voted down by the southern counties.

      True, it probably won’t get much traction, but when we similar unrest in other places, like say in Arizona :

      Some liberal residents of Pima County, Arizona, have become so dissatisfied with their state’s conservative politics that they’ve begun a campaign to help the county secede from Arizona and become a state on its own.

      “It happens, and it can happen here,” said Tucson attorney Paul Eckerstrom, who co-founded the “Start Our State” organization to push for statehood for Baja Arizona.

      Pima County, in the southwest part of the state including the city of Tucson, is home to roughly 1 million people and is more politically moderate than neighboring Maricopa County to the north, which includes the state capital of Phoenix.

      “Like Maine, which broke off from Massachusetts, we want to get the legislature to let us leave,” Eckerstrom said, “and then we can petition Congress to accept us as a state.”

      I am beginning to see levels of discontent that weren’t present even 10 years ago. We are seeing the rebellion against the centralization of power, whether from the right or even the left in the Arizona case…. Pretty sure that neither of these movements will make any progress, but where there’s smoke…..

    There are light rumblings of secession in several central states. I don’t know what it would take to push any of them over the edge, but if one of them goes, I feel confident that several will follow. If Texas were to go, I’d bet OK, AR, and a few others would probably form their own little nation. Even though the possibility remains remote that this will happen, it’s a really, really sad reflection on the state of our nation that it is even being discussed.
