I can't believe they are trying to divide Florida into two states:

South Florida and North Florida.

The border will be West Palm Beach, South of West Palm will be considered South Florida and north of West Palm will be considered North Florida.

I hope it doesn't happen.[xx(]

    If south florida will stop sucking all of our water I'll be really happy here in N florida.

    We've had lots of rain, but we still have 10+ years of low rain to catch up on... and that includes rain from the hurricanes we've had...

    We are simply catching up.

    South Carolina, South Dakota and ... South Florida?

    Furious at what they consider the giving of more tax dollars than they get, North Lauderdale commissioners passed a resolution to divide Florida into two states: North Florida and South Florida.

    They'd draw the boundary line at Jupiter, the northernmost city in Palm Beach County and head south down through Broward and Miami-Dade counties and into Monroe County.

    "It's based out of frustration with the state Legislature ignoring the cities in South Florida," said North Lauderdale Commissioner Rich Moyle. "They don't really care too much what happens with South Florida.

    Commissioners want to get the word out, directing the city clerk to send copies of their April 29 resolution to state officials, plus all members of Congress and President Bush.

    They invited other South Florida cities to join them. Tonight Margate weighs the issue.

    The resolution apparently is more a statement than an actual threat.

    "I see the point they are trying to make," state Sen. Jeremy Ring said Tuesday, "but every part of the state has its own challenges."

    "South Florida feels like we're getting shafted by North Florida, and my friends in North Florida think they are getting shafted by South Florida," added Ring, a Democrat from Parkland who also represents Margate and North Lauderdale.

    "Is the grass greener in Tennessee? Well, if I move there, probably not."

    Always a comment from the "peanut gallery."

    I lived there previous to 1991.
    Wouldn't go back if you paid me, although I still have many friends there.

    Wiseazz![:D]

    As a native Georgian, I have always thought this was a good idea.
    We will form the Georgia Bulldozer Brigade.
    About 90 miles south of the Georgia border, we will cut a mile wide channel, 100 feet deep, that will sever north Florida from the Union.

    Hopefully, the tectonic plates will shift, and the South of "Florida" will drift down and join Cuba, and no longer be part of the USA.

    "North Florida" will be admitted to the Union as an part the blessed State of Georgia. The new union will then consist of 49 states.
    What an improvement.

    Now why would you want to wish that on me???
    Yes, it's a tad third world down here...but I blame the US Government for that. They failed to enforce immigration law.
    And that Wet foot/Dry foot policy needs to be repealed!

    BTW, for those that don't know...
    The talk of succession is just that, talk. Ain't gonna happen.

    It stems from the FACT that Miami-Dade and Broward counties PAY the most money in taxes to the State's coffers than all the other counties in FL.

    Yet, we don't get our fair share of State revenue in return.
    Our tax dollars go else where...we want more of it back in services.

    Those wanting to succeed are the equivalent of the Boston Tea Party.

    We in the "51st state" want taxation with representation!!!

    On a similar note, I see Omaha is trying to "annex" Carter lake Iowa.They want the state line moved back to the center of the Missouri river. It was a blurb in the paper today. I looked at the paper on line and couldn't find it. What a joke Omaha is.

    I wish they would make Illinois into two states. Chicago would be one State and the rest of Illinois would be the other. Without Chicago, this State would have some great possibilities.

    Every State could be divided.
    All the big metro areas in one and all the sane places in the other.
    Washington really needs to be divided at the crest of the Cascade mountains.
    Same with California. South CA and North CA.
    Never happen but we can all dream.

    OH WAIT. Now I know how Obama gets 57 states.
    Maybe he knows something the rest of us don't.

    It makes sense for some of the large States to split as the people would have twice as many Senators. Florida, New York Texas and Californa are logical canidates. That would make fifty four States and 6 rows of nine stars on the flag.
