Warning Will Robinson! Danger! Danger! California splitting into three states
IF California is allowed to split into three states, THEN THAT WOULD ADD 4 MORE SENATORS FROM THAT LIBERAL LA LA LAND! Therein lies the ugly side of their splitting into three states. As planned, there will be enough huge cities in each new state to keep the states extremely liberal/progressive. The balance in the Senate, already a freakin' mess, would get more imbalanced. And more reps in the House would make it even worse.
