....trying to break up California, that is. Unlike his 2014 plan (which took California and split it into six states), now he wants three states (North California, South California, and the LA-San Fran-Silly Valley zone becomes "California"). The scam to get where Draper runs his business turned into a Libertarian wonderland is blatant.

Notice that Draper is wearing a Bitcoin lapel pin - are the klaxon horns loud enough?

The obligatory Alternet article:


Experts Say Splitting California into 3 States Is Just Another Silicon Valley Fantasy

“Breaking up and reconstituting California into three separate parts would be more complicated than Brexit."

Nicole Karlis / Salon (link to original)

In 2014, serial venture capitalist Tim Draper launched a new enterprise: a campaign to divide the state of California into six separate states. Two years later, the initiative — known as Six Californias — failed to qualify as a 2016 ballot measure.

That didn't stop Draper’s determination to split up California. Instead, he did what any tenacious Silicon Valley tycoon would do: refine his vision, in this case, by turning six into three. The simplification of the math led to an early triumph.

Thanks to Draper, Californians will have the chance in November to vote on whether or not they want California divided into three separate states — Northern California, Southern California and California. The measure, being marketed as "Cal 3," received over 402,468 valid signatures to secure itself a place on the ballot.....

.....Draper has the resources for this initiative. He donated $1 million, chump change for someone with an estimated $1 billion net worth. He comes from Silicon Valley money and royalty; Fortune magazine called the Drapers “the industry’s first family.” Draper is a cryptocurrency enthusiast; he reportedly won an auction by the US Marshals of nearly 30,000 Bitcoins, which were seized from the online black market Silk Road. He is an investor in Skype and Tesla. He was also an investor in the infamously perjurious biotech startup Theranos, and recently publicly defended its CEO Elizabeth Holmes — who was recently indicted on fraud charges — saying she did “a great job.” [Warning bells going off yet in your head, dear reader?]

No mention in this article that splitting California up would mean that the poorer areas inland in "Northern California" and "Southern California" would get that much worse because the tax money in the wealthy "California" of Orange County, LA, and San Fran would stay in those areas. Literally this is Silicon Valley/LA treating the rest of the state like the Apollo moon rockets, with expendable boosters that are ejected in stages the farther the astronauts go towards the Moon.

The Draper plan needs to crash and burn badly.
