I would love to see California turned into 6 different states. I don't see it happening but it would be interesting to see what happens if they get enough votes.
"Tech investor Tim Draper launches 'Six Californias' ballot measure to divide the Golden State
"Lots of folks believe California is ungovernable. Venture capitalist Tim Draper has a solution: Six Californias, including one called Silicon Valley.
Draper, a maverick tech investor who once poured $20 million into a statewide school voucher initiative, on Monday laid out his case for a proposed ballot measure that, if passed by voters, would demand Congress slice and dice the nation's most populous state.
"We're simply too big and bloated," Draper declared in a news conference from Draper University of Heroes, the San Mateo school for aspiring startup CEOs he opened earlier this year."
He said people are already flocking to his Spartan website, www.sixcalifornias.info
, which he said will soon contain more details about the plan.
Asked by this newspaper how much of his own fortune he plans to sink into his latest political crusade, Draper deadpanned: "As little as possible." Then he added, "I'll make sure it gets on the ballot, so that Californians have a chance to make the decision."
6 Proposed states:
Jefferson - the same name as an entity first proposed in the 1940s that would have included parts of Southern Oregon and Northern California.
