'South California': Riverside politician seeks to form 'South California'

All county highways in zone R lie within River...Image via WikipediaProbably being the best idea I've heard for California in years. South California its own state? Now for the first time this actually make complete sense. Growing in in Southern California myself. I could never understand why the Capitol was so far away. Most state in the U.S. isn't so hard to go visit the Capitol. But growing up in California. I don't think I have ever been there.

You see it really does not make any sense why Southern California shouldn't be it own state for many reasons. Its 2 completely different places. North and South. South California has a lot. L.A. , Santa Monica, Hollywood  Sunset Strip, Beaches. Queen Mary, among. Riverside, San Bernardino and all those mountains, Palm Springs all the great stuff. Northern CA? Umm. It think there's a Bridge and and prison? It just not the same. Southern California being it's own state? Yeah this make complete sense.

The distances between the 2 places, always made me wonder why it wasn't like that in the first place.. Even though this seems to be a right and left party argument yet once again. The thought in general is one of the best Ideas I've heard in a long time. Se the full article at the link below.

Accusing Sacramento of pillaging local governments to feed its runaway spending and left-wing policies, a Riverside County politician is proposing a solution: He wants 13 mostly inland, conservative counties to break away to form a separate state of "South California.''
Supervisor Jeff Stone, a Republican pharmacist from Temecula, called California an "ungovernable'' financial catastrophe from which businesses are fleeing and where taxpayers are being crushed by the burden of caring for welfare recipients and illegal immigrants.
On Tuesday, the Riverside County Board of Supervisors will consider Stone's proposal to host a statewide summit for city and county leaders to sketch out a framework for secession.
The politician said he was undaunted by scores of failed similar attempts since the 1800s, saying Californians haven't face such dismal economic times since the Great Depression.
"This has struck a chord with a lot of people in the state who have suffered economically,'' said Stone, adding that he has received thousands of emails supporting his proposal. "We know it's going to be a challenge to form a second state, but it's not a impossible. We're sending a message.''
