Answer for California's Problems: Divide and Conquer?

County of Riverside Supervisor Jeff Stone proposes breaking up California in order to form a new "State of South California."

According to Stone,

"Our taxes are too high, our schools don't educate our children well enough, unions and other special interests have more clout in the Legislature than the general public. It has to change."

The formation of this new entity would comprise of Riverside, Imperial, San Diego, San Bernardino, Kings, Kern, Tulare, Inyo, Madera, Mariposa and Mono counties.

"The split, Stone said Thursday, would allow officials in the new state to concentrate on securing borders, balancing budgets, improving schools and creating a vibrant economy."
