Plan To Split California Into Six States Gets OK To Gather Signatures « CBS San Francisco

Even if this were to succeed (it won’t), I’d still be stuck living in San Francisco.  Only my state would be called “Silicon Valley,” which I don’t think is all that much of an improvement.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. How quickly would the pestholes of Silly Valley and Angelopolis go broke? They’re already dragging the productive part of the state down. If the four productive ex-California states were separated, I imagine we’d see dramatically different economic trajectories.

    Somewhat the same applies in NYS. I’ve been advocating for decades for NYC and environs to be “New York State” while upstate becomes the state of Not That Shithole Down There. The downies like to claim that most of the state’s income comes from them. That’s true, especially in years when Wall Street bonuses are huge and hugely taxed. But note that more than half of the population lives down there and that most of the state government’s expenses go down there, and it no longer looks like such a good deal for those of us upstate. Combine that with laws and attitudes that come from the pesthole but are enforced statewide and we see that the Adirondacks and like areas would be much better off without them. Seeya! Don’t bother to write!
