Commiefornia No More? November Ballot Will Allow Citizens A Vote To Split Up State Jurisdictions Reader 06/13/2018 (Wed) 12:46:50 Id: 84fec2 [Preview] No. 10274

California’s 168-year run as a single entity, hugging the continent’s edge for hundreds of miles and sprawling east across mountains and desert, could come to an end next year — as a controversial plan to split the Golden State into three new jurisdictions qualified Tuesday for the Nov. 6 ballot.

If a majority of voters who cast ballots agree, a long and contentious process would begin for three separate states to take the place of California, with one primarily centered around Los Angeles and the other two divvying up the counties to the north and south. Completion of the radical plan — far from certain, given its many hurdles at judicial, state and federal levels — would make history.

It would be the first division of an existing U.S. state since the creation of West Virginia in 1863.

“Three states will get us better infrastructure, better education and lower taxes,” Tim Draper, the Silicon Valley venture capitalist who sponsored the ballot measure, said in an email to The Times last summer when he formally submitted the proposal. “States will be more accountable to us and can cooperate and compete for citizens.”

In the initiative’s introductory passage, Draper argues that “vast parts of California are poorly served by a representative government dominated by a large number of elected representatives from a small part of our state, both geographically and economically.”

The proposal aims to invoke Article IV, Section 3 of the U.S. Constitution, the provision guiding how an existing state can be divided into new states. Draper’s plan calls for three new entities — Northern California, California and Southern California — which would roughly divide the population of the existing state into thirds.

Northern California would consist of 40 counties stretching from Oregon south to Santa Cruz County, then east to Merced and Mariposa counties. Southern California would begin with Madera County in the Central Valley and then wind its way along the existing state’s eastern and southern spine, comprising 12 counties and ultimately curving up the Pacific coast to grab San Diego and Orange counties.

Under the longshot proposal, Los Angeles County would anchor the six counties that retained the name California, a state that would extend northward along the coast to Monterey County. Draper’s campaign website argues the three states would have reasonably similar household incomes and enough industries to produce their own viable economies.

This could be an attempt to make two more commie states to swing the 2020 election. There could be a possibility one would flip red though, but they'd have another blue state on their side. I sense desperation here that has could someday have potential to backfire.

>red and blue matters
Always the same agendas, despite rhetoric. Yet people think choosing between the two party system is going to make a difference. Choice is the illusion.

For the most part that is correct, we all know these politicians are puppets: pro-Israel, pro-war, pro-insolvency, pro-surveillance and so on... but there is still one individual issue that separates the two party system and that is the 2nd Amendment. Undeniably so. And facing that one fact, I rather have kikes that protect our rights to self-defense than the kikes who want to confiscate our arms and jail us as criminals if we don't comply. Does that make any sense? If you an American it should. Either way, we are pretty much stuck with the two party system.

The only way to defeat this two party system is to infiltrate them and beat them at their own game. There have been a few candidates out there that have called the Zionists out, only they are under-funded and badly publicized by the media because they put clear targets on their backs. We need more /pol/-minded people running for BOTH parties and trying to convince the average normfag to vote for them (try running on pro-liberty, guns, raising or decreasing taxes, whatever the normie voter wants and keep you mouth shut about ZOG as you run for office as this will only put you under the radar for destruction, know what I mean?) Then if you happen to get elected you can bring up the real issues, including trying to defund the wars for ZOG and all of that. Stealth infiltration. Thats my take.

You really don't understand kikes that well.
That wouldn't work either. See, they call the shots and as soon as you step out of line you're impeached. Look at how many claim Trump will be impeached. He never is because he's towing the line. When you reach presidential status, men in suits tell you exactly what you're going to do. The president is nothing more than a puppet.

Can they impeach a politician or president if they did nothing wrong though? Maybe if they planted evidence and framed someone, possibly. I agree they system is fucked but what do we do about it, outside another bloody civil war? Is there no peaceful solutions to the problems we face? I have to believe if there is a will there is a way, no matter how difficult. I think some court cases (such as what recently happened in Deerfield IL when the judge struck down a total gun ban) proves that if some people just stand up for whats right they can prevail against the crooked politicians.
