Group wants to split California into two states

There’s yet another effort underway to turn California into multiple states.

The “New California” campaign was founded by Robert Paul Preston and Tom Reed, who seek to split the more liberal coast from the more conservative inland areas.

“After years of over taxation, regulation, and mono party politics the State of California and many of its 58 Counties have become ungovernable,” the New California movement declares on its website.

They also say that California is a failed state and that we’ve become governed by a tyranny.

Naturally, the internet has some thoughts:

In order for the plan to move forward, the state legislature would have to approve followed by Congress. In other words, it’s not going to happen.
