California really is unmanageable. And since northern California and southern California are different, I think dividing it into 2 states should be seriously considered. I don’t think it should be 6 states (as proposed in the article below) since that does load the dice politically. There would be too many US Senators in one region of the USA (Senators are determined by state, not by population.)
By the way, some investment advice: if this movement gets steam, make sure you buy stock in companies that make US Flags since a star will need to be added to the US Flag.
Plan to split California into six states gains ground

The seemingly far-fetched initiative, sponsored by Silicon Valley venture capitalist Tim Draper, claims “political representation of California’s diverse population and economies has rendered the state nearly ungovernable.”
