NO WAY!! This is a illogical idea! Imagine visiting a friend who lives an hour away, but then finding out you have to cross a boarder to get to them! Or, if you have a great job that is a few hours away. You might have to cross from Silicon Valley to Central California. Also, Jefferson is a strange name. So is Central California. And if people want more counties, CA already has 58. We don't need 12 more!! Raise awareness and prevent CA from splitting up into more states. Stop this absurd idea from becoming reality!!

In your argument, you stated three points that made me scratch my head a little. Here they are:
1. This is a illogical idea! Imagine visiting a friend who lives an hour away, but then finding out you have to cross a boarder to get to them!
Never in the recent history of the United States has crossing an inter-state border taken time. You are usually presented with a sign (e.g. "Welcome to Iowa!") and then more road.
2. You might have to cross from Silicon Valley to Central California. Also, Jefferson is a strange name. So is Central California.
No one said that these would be the names of the states. If California was splitting up into six states, wouldn't it want to remove the name of California from the six states' names?
3. And if people want more counties, CA already has 58. We don't need 12 more!!
Just because you would be splitting California up into six states doesn't mean you should add more counties. With the drought upon the state in full swing already, from a logistics standpoint that would seem confusing when trying to relay water to the thirsty citizens of California.
In closing, none of the arguments you have stated so far make even the tiniest gram of sense. In the end of your post, you ask the readers to "raise awareness" as if it was a real issue, and to "prevent CA from splitting up" as if they had any real power. You are treating this like an Internet charity organization, not as an actual debate. Bring something better for me in the second round when you actually learn what a debate is.
