....oh, I forgot, the new state of South California won't have much of a tax base. True, there are a few well-to-do counties...like Orange and San Diego, but mostly those counties will be taxing the people of say, Huntington Beach, royally to pay for roads and other infrastructure in Barstow, and Blythe, and Needles.
Frankly, this would be good news to the rest of us. Most of the tax base would be left to what is now Northern and Central California, of course. Some of the wealthiest counties would be on our side of the wacked out Mason-Dixon Line. We'll see your Disneyland with our Silicon Valley....and most of the intellectual energy in the state would definitely NOT be in South California, with the exception of San Diego County....which would definitely NOT vote for this, by the way.
Conservatives have such interesting pipe-dreams.....be careful, you may get what you wish for...and I'd say you haven't worked it out very well.
P.S. I would miss Disneyland, though.
