    One Florida City Calls for a State Split: North Florida and South Florida


    NORTH LAUDERDALE, Fla. One city commission wants to divide Florida into two states: North Florida and South Florida.

    The North Lauderdale City Commission says in a resolution that it's not confident in state leaders when it comes to collecting and spending their own money. It also says it would be "in the best interests of the citizens and residents" to divide the state.

    Commissioner Rich Moyle says they're frustrated with the state Legislature "ignoring the cities in South Florida." But he acknowledges the idea likely won't pass.

    When asked Tuesday about the resolution, Governor Charlie Crist could only muster up a laugh.

    Meanwhile, other municipalities and counties are being asked to join in the resolution. The boundary line would be from Palm Beach County down through Monroe County.

    This is just crazy.

    Believe it or not, the great Liberal minds are all for it. We even have Miami Herald columnist Fred Grimm calling any legislator not from the south tri-county area "cracker."
    I shudder to think what would happen if the split goes through. Good Bye Florida's constitution and hello Peoples Republic of South Florida: Ye shall be taxed, defenseless and on your way to become the California of the East Coast.

    Something just scary just occurred to me. South Florida State will need, beisdes governor and cabinets, etc a State Attorney. And who better than one who was US Attorney General and knows what to do in those tough occasions plus is a native of South Florida.



    Guess who?

    Instead of dividing it into two states just divide it and give the bottom half to Cuba. Dig a canal through the middle with a wall and armed guards.

    Actually that's 3/4ths of what they've been complaining about. The southern florida counties provide for a fairly large quantity of the tax monies that are spent elsewhere in the state.

    Hey, It's their boat. If they want to chance sinking it, it's their perogative. I'm all for it. Frankly, I've been advocating VA splits 3 ways for years. The representatives we've had NEVER represent the views of the majority of the state...usually only a few built up enclaves (NoVA, Richmond in particular). The vast majority of the tax burden is placed on NoVA and Richmond, but the majority of the state doesn't follow NoVA or Richmonds Politics. Large portions of NoVA may as well just extend the line for D.C. around them since they seem to want to be some much like them. Richmond would join hands and sing kumbaya with SanFran if they weren't separated by the rest of the continent. So what do you do? Continue to take it up the tailpipe?
