Tech billionaire and venture capitalist, Tim Draper, has gathered enough votes to trigger a referendum on splitting California into three separate states that include Northern California, which would include San Francisco and Sacramento; Southern California, including San Diego, San Bernardino, and the Mojave Desert; and California, a sliver of coastline taking in Los Angeles and surrounding areas. California has almost 40 million residents, and a GDP of $2.75 trillion.  If a November referendum were to be successful, Congress would still have to authorize the split due to its national significance.

Billionaire venture capitalist Tim Draper has gathered enough votes to trigger a referendum on splitting California into three separate states.

Draper’s CAL 3 campaign has gathered 600,000 signatures supporting the split since he proposed the initiative last August. He told the Telegraph that 600,000 signatures was a  “milestone” and sent a message that people across California would “create a brighter future for everyone.”

With only 364,000 signatures needed to force a referendum, a vote will be held on the proposal this November, alongside the midterm elections.

Draper’s proposal envisions splitting California into three separate states. Northern California, which would include San Francisco and Sacramento; Southern California, including San Diego, San Bernardino, and the Mojave Desert; and California, a sliver of coastline taking in Los Angeles and surrounding areas.

Federal Constitution, ARTICLE 4, SECTION 3:

“New states may be admitted by the Congress into this union; but no new states shall be formed or erected within the jurisdiction of any other state; nor any state be formed by the junction of two or more states, or parts of states, without the consent of the legislatures of the states concerned as well as of the Congress.”

I think it’s a great plan. The liberals would gravitate to Northern CA or CA, and the conservatives would settle in Southern CA. And then each of the three states would be run on that partisan makeup and we would all see which party ran their state better. I suspect Southern CA, if it remained more conservative would win with a better economy.
