If we could have an amendment that required states to receive back from the Federal government what they put in I'd happily shed the 'State of Jefferson' from California. I'm sick of subsidizing those type of people. 5 years ago from a Green in Brisbane, CA
No, because any secession from the Union is treason, regardless of the reasons. There are better ways to solve our problem of being under-represented in the Senate and the issues with governmental services going at the pace of a sleepy tortoise than... 5 years ago from a Green in Toluca Lake, CA
No this will add another 10 Democratic senators in Washington. 5 years ago from a Republican in San Diego, CA
Yes but I can only speak for my area separating. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Hayfork, CA
Allowing for greater divisions within the state can only result in more chaos and room for increasing treachery. 5 years ago from a Republican in Signal Hill, CA
California should secede from the United States, whether it becomes a single new country or several is of little interest. 5 years ago from a Libertarian in Santa Clara, CA
No. Not six states, but splitting the state up may be a good idea. I don't know how it would be divided, but I would not be opposed to it. 5 years ago from a Libertarian in Harbor City, CA

State Choice first, then congress vote for it, whatever turns up I will respect with no issues. I would tell my congressmen not to vote for it. 5 years ago from a Republican in Brisbane, CA
Split yes, but north California and South California. 5 years ago from a Green in Sacramento, CA
Three states makes sense, six does not. 5 years ago from a Republican in Berkeley, CA
Two states at best. Clearly, there are a substantial number of counties within the state that are underrepresented but dividing the state into six separate states probably would not be a good idea. 5 years ago from a Republican in Cutten, CA
