RF23 - For The Hell Of It

Unbelievable, some yahoo was successful in getting enough signatures to put on the November 2016 National and State ballot to break the State of California into six, count 'em 1,2,3,4,5, 6 different states.   I can see breaking it into two, a Northern and Southern California, but six?  really? and get this according to an article I read, one of the states is going to be a poor state.  Most likely where most of the tax users will reside and although it won't affect me because of where I presently live, I will still live in Southern California, but not attached to what is now Los Angeles County, which will be called West California which consist of L.A.,Ventura, Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties.  One portion of the six states has proposed to call itself Silicon Valley and another proposed to call itself Jefferson.  I don't think the creators of that, thought that through clearly.  Surely the names Silicon Valley and Jefferson sounds like counties or better yet, cities!  Look the whole thing appears to be a pipe dream and if the people vote to break up the state, it has congress to hurdle and that's where the dream ends.  But it sounds like fun and I for one will for it, just for the hell of it...
