    And Republicans are just praying for that big earthquake to break off California and letting them float away.

    If your only plan for winning is that California will break into three state then your party is in really bad shape. It's also not clear that a California breakup would necessarily help Republicans. California is liberal because the large majority of its people are liberal. It's possible to carve a conservative third state out of things, likely by calving off much of eastern California, which is more sparsely populated and conservative, but you'd still have plenty of liberal congressional districts and the electoral votes which go with them. You'd also likely end up with two coastal states which would be liberal dominated. This would mean that you'd gain two extra Senators who are likely to be Democrats.

    Really? Think about it.

    As three States, California will have six rather than two Senators. We Californians will gain four Senators who will vote liberal. Three rather than one blue State.

    The three new States together will not lose any population; so together they'll still have the same number of Representatives as before.

    Also together they'll have the same number of members in the Electoral College, which also depends on population.

    Bottom line, North California, South California, and California will end up being three Blue States rather than just the one. As a liberal, I'll take it. You're Red Tsunami is more like a Red Herring.

    Becoming 3 states, if it ever even happens, is a long way away. The last time such a thing occurred was in 1863

    The Texas panhandle threatens to break off and become "Old Texas" every few years, and this idea is just as laughable.

    California can become three states the same way it can become it's own country. In fact it would be better off as it's own country.

    I honestly believe California is a state of massive confusion and bewilderment.
