‘Cal-3’ plan would separate California into three States
To break Plan California into three States makes it on the ballot; Trace Gallagher explains what the plan would mean for the state and the reaction that it receives.
The movement to slice up the state of California, reeling from internal disputes about what is the best way to organize the state.
The Cal-3-measure, which aims to break America’s most populous state into three smaller States, recently enough support to earn the right to be collected to appear on the Nov. 6 parliamentary election, elections give the voters a historic chance to improve their representation at the national level.
But instead of getting behind the upcoming vote, the separatist movement, broken into several camps, each with their own plans and criticize each other for unfairly dividing lines, the Washington Times reported.
Paul Preston, vice president and co-founder of the New California movement, which is a two-state solution in California, based on rural-urban lines, says venture capitalist Tim Draper partition plan that the voters vote in November — that would be the Problem of voters-representation, as it would create just two deep-blue States and a swing state.
“With Draper, he makes sure that each area has an urbanized zone, and finally blue. You still have the country-city thing going on in his formula,” Preston, the Times said. “The people in rural areas are shafted again.”

Yes, California, Louis Marinelli, meanwhile, both the Draper and Preston initiatives, the demand declines, all of them are just Republicans land “to chip away at the voice of California gives the Republic a solid blue state.”
Marinelli’s plan, called Calexit, is to Land in California an independent and secede from the United States – a step too far for the other separatists.
“The secession. This is what happened in the civil war,” said Preston nothing, that his group will support the initiative. “You want to create a new country, and that’s just not going to happen. Firstly, it is illegal under our Constitution. There is to support no base out here.”
Separatists have long argued that the current state of California is too big to function and cope with local problems.
In may, the U.S. Commerce Department said that California now has the world’s fifth largest economy, surpassing that of the UK, the Sacramento Bee reported.
“I think the same kind of voter frustration that leads to people to Donald Trump or Bernie Sanders is the fuel behind this effort,” Dan Schnur, a professor at USC’s Annenberg School of Communications, said the outlet. “If you are one of 40 million people, you don’t feel like you can get the necessary attention, and the [Cal 3] is a solution, you give three times as much attention.”
The Cal-3-could pave curls initiative, more than 400,000 signatures, and the way to appear on the ballot in November, but other separatists say they are unlikely to achieve much.
“The three California measure is dead on arrival,” said Preston. “The Constitution is not legally sound, and everyone recognizes it. All of which I have spoken — and I get flooded, because we have engaged in 50 counties in our program — all of them are absolutely horrified.”
Preston’s New California group, which is now set to. July 21 constitutional Convention, and expect to have a case of the legislature, so the legislature can then proceed to divide the state. He argues that the only way to achieve this is to follow a partition of California, the U.S. Constitution is article IV, section 3, which States that no new States can be created “, without the consent of the legislature of the States concerned as well as of the Congress.”
The Cal-3 measure, if successful, will ask the Governor to ask the consent of the Congress, and then let the rest of the process to the Parliament.
“I think the rest of the country will only want to do what is right for California,” Draper, who funds the Cal-3 initiative, told Fox News’ Tucker Carlson back in April.
“It takes up the same land mass as the 15 States on the East coast. The population is the equivalent of an average of six or seven States. So I think it is appropriate that California, represented by at least three States.”
