I have been thinking about the merit of dividing California into 2 states. It really makes sense on so many fronts.
The name of the states should be California and Pacifis – after Atlantis that sank into the ocean.
Pacifis should include all territory west of San Andreas Fault, and also including the whole southern portion of the San Francisco Bay up to San Pablo following the Hayward fault. The Northern portion of the bay will remain in California.
California already have inspection stations for agriculture goods and it would be relatively easy to set up more along the Fault lines. Then as the area west of the San Andreas fault physically secedes from the mainland it is logical to allow Pacifis to politically secede from the United States.
Can part California secede?
Droughts, earthquakes all make it recede.
For west of the fault line
Decline is the byline.
From Bay to LA all agreed.
