Mitch Black emails in response to the post, The Latest Plan From a Billionaire Who Wants To Split Up California Into Three Separate States:
I really have to chuckle at this proposal, as if the map it is geographically correct, it will definitely leave the Marxist, Commie, Progressive authoritarian wackos in charge. Shutting Sacrament down is optimal, but splitting the state from north to south running from Mendocino county, 50 miles inland down to Sand Diego would, in my opinion be a better way than what is being proposed. Having grown up in Visalia, California in the 60's and 70's, I am certainly biased. But of course, I would say biased in favor of sanity :-) Haha. Would that folks would begin to understand that government is as Murray would say, "A gang of thieves writ large" and I add, a very violent bunch as well.
Seriously, if the state were partitioned in this manner, it wouldn't solve a thing.As I said, focus should be on shrinking government, not these silly games of dividing up power amongst different bands of lefties. They are moving the discussion away from the pursuit of liberty.
