A tech billionaire wants to bust up California into three states in order to better serve the various constituencies of the state.
More from Fox News:
Billionaire venture capitalist Tim Draper says his petition to break up California into three states has garnered enough signatures for the initiative to be added to the ballot this November.
Draper lobbied unsuccessfully for similar ballot initiatives in 2014 and 2016, but this year he said he was able to amass approximately 600,000 signatures, well more than the 365,880 required. The initiative reportedly will be submitted to election officials next week.
CBS Los Angeles reported that the initiative proposes a central state that would consist of Los Angeles, Ventura, Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, Monterey and San Benito counties; a southern state made up of Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego, Imperial, Kern, Kings, Fresno, Tulare, Inyo, Madera and Mono counties; and the 40 remaining counties grouped into a northern state.
This makes a lot of sense – which is why it won’t happen. Because of the way our government works, liberals get all of those electoral votes and hold hostage the conservative and Republican population of California. They would NEVER give up that power.
Frankly, there are way too many elites who make money based on government running poorly. And they have tons of gullible idiots voting for them….
