Fiery CA Attorney: California Is 'Like a Drunk, It Has to Hit Rock-Bottom' Before Things Change
A California attorney sounded off Thursday on the state’s misguided liberal leadership in response to a radical plan to split the state into three smaller states.
The proposal to divide the Golden State into Northern California, Southern California, and California, qualified to be placed on the November ballot.
Reacting on "Fox & Friends," Kurt Schlichter, who is also a columnist for Townhall.com, proposed Los Angeles be its own "state" under the new plan.
"We can build a giant wall around it on the border and seal it off from the rest of the United States so it can stop doing so much damage," he said.
When asked how he thought splitting California into 3 states would impact liberal presence in Congress, Schlichter said, “Let’s divide a great patriotic state like Texas into 4, that way we can get a bunch new conservative senators.”
The issue that California faces is that the majority of the state’s influence is derived from a few pockets, namely Silicon Valley and Los Angeles, he said.
“It’s almost like a feudal government here, you got the overlords living in Silicon Valley and Los Angeles and they’re ruling over this vast, vast nation,” said Schlichter.
"The people out in the valley, in the mountains, they’re not getting represented, they’re getting overrun. They’re getting treated like garbage, they’re being ignored and this state is being run by the sort of people who live in Silicon Valley and who live in west side los angeles and that’s just not right," he added.
"California is like a drunk. It has to hit rock bottom and get some sense again and re-embrace free enterprise instead of this liberal Venezuela nightmare," Schlichter said.
