Should happen in a lot of states

More states splitting (especially high population states) would improve things in many respects by decentralizing power (on a state level and in the Senate specifically). Over-centraliziation is at the root of many of our nations problems, and while state splitting wouldn't solve everything by any stretch, it would offer a lot of benefits.

"Sometimes it is said that man cannot be trusted with the government of himself. Can he, then, be trusted with the government of others? Or have we found angels in the forms of kings to govern him?" -Thomas Jefferson
