Why You Should Care About The Plan To Break Up California

The author makes this statement:
California is the most populous state in the US, a fact some believe makes it ungovernable. The Six Californias Initiative would seek to make things more manageable by dividing the state into six parts. But what effect might this division have? How would each new state compare, demographically, to the other now-55 states? How might these new geopolitical entities vote?
CA has a population of 38 million.  TX 's population is 26 million.  So, what's the cutoff? To be honest, it's not a function of population.  It's a function of the populace.

I don't think I want an additional 10 senators from the remnants of CA.  The country would forever tilt to the Left. Forevermore.

What a disgusting thought.  I say gerrymander it to dilute the coastal powers.
