"The government is almost indifferent to voter opinion because they can always play one part of the state off the other part. Which means they never have to do anything anyone wants. They just mommy/daddy the whole thing and then lie when that doesn't work.
Look. It needs to split because its unweldy, inherently corrupt, and incapable of serving the local needs of its residents."
I agree entirely that CA could be split into at least 2 more manageable states.
Then again, I'd point out that there are few arguments in favor of this that wouldn't apply exactly and perfectly well to the FEDERAL government and US regions/states.
