Can California become two states?

Well, here we go. Another loony idea by the Californians. Some people in California have decided that they are “ungovernable” so they plan on talking to Congress in order to split the state into multiple states.

Well, will it work?  

No, most likely not. There have already been five attempts to break California into multiple states, all of which failed.

  • 1941
  • 1965
  • 1992
  • 2011
  • 2014

And now of course 2018.

What I find ridiculous is that they claim it is due to “high taxes.” Yes, you do have high taxes, that is why the middle class of California has been fleeing the state in absurd numbers. The part of this new plan that I do not understand is why make a new state? Why can’t you just move? California, regardless of if you create a new state, will still be home to the poor and the very rich. It is warm, and close to the beach, with great views. That is a draw to the rich, and the people who fail at attempting to become rich.

Also, without the consent of Congress, it would be considered unconstitutional, and they would most likely be considered an enemy of the United States. (Article 4 section 3 of the constitution)

So basically what I am saying is California, stop. You will not break into two states, it will fail like the other attempts.
