Who gets Yosemite? in Three Californias plan
« on: June 14, 2018, 01:00:05 PM »
For example, Yosemite National Park would suddenly straddle two of the new states since part of it is in Madera (Southern California) while other parts are in Tuolumne and Mariposa (Northern California) counties.

Nobody. UPS already thinks Yosemite is it's own nation

The thing about living in Yosemite Nation is that it's fairly easy to travel the United States if you want to experience Costco

Splitting California along the proposed lines would really be a bad idea.  Northern California would be completely dominated by the Bay Area.  What they want to call 'California' would be most of the Southern Coast and dominated by LA.  If the more rural areas think they don't have a say now, imagine how bad it would be after the split?

Other than the coastal area, most of what would be called Southern California is extremely poor and generally a miserable place to live.  San Diego would end up the most prosperous city in Southern California with the rest of the state a poor wasteland with very little income and short water resources. 

Also, it would never get ratified because it would add four U.S. Senate seats, congress is already quietly ignoring Puerto Rico's request for statehood.

SO TRUE
No way American Citizens would be willing to give CA 4 more Senate seats.  :D
