Dozens of bills being advanced by radical Democrats in Richmond threaten our Constitutional freedoms, our gun rights, our economy and livelihoods, and our values.
A small sample includes:
• “Virginia Senate committee advances slew of conformed gun-control bills” (The Washington Examiner)
• Restricting the right to form militias (PDF of bill)
• Hundreds of new taxes and environmental regulations (worse than AOC’s Green New Deal)
We have recourse. County by county, freedom-loving citizens can declare: “We love Virginia. But if Richmond won’t listen and respect our freedoms, we’re going to change the border to become part of a state that still believes in and protects God-given rights enshrined in the Constitution.”
Why don’t we just try to win back the state legislature and governor’s office? The demographics in Virginia are not good because the Federal government employee base has become more of our voting population every year. Blue Northern Virginia now dominates over the the giant remainder of the red state.
The nation’s founders did not intend for Washington D.C. to be a part of any state. And they certainly didn’t envision millions of people moving to the DC area for federal jobs, but influencing Virginia’s state politics in the process. We face a losing demographic war.
We have found allies in West Virginia. West Virginia Delegate Gary Howell proposed state legislation (HCR 8) to make the annexation into West Virginia possible via a county by county vote. And West Virginia Governor Jim Justice held a joint news conference in January with Jerry Falwell, president of Liberty University in Virginia, stating, “Our state supports personal freedom and we value the second amendment and the rights of the unborn. Come join us. You will never regret it.”
“These tensions have been compounded by a perception of contempt on the part of the government at Richmond for the differences in certain fundamental political and societal principles which prevail between the varied counties and cities of that Commonwealth.”
…In a spirit of conciliation, the Legislature of West Virginia hereby extends an invitation to our fellow Virginians who wish to do so, to join us in our noble experiment of 156 years of separation from the government at Richmond; and, we extend an invitation to any constituent county or city of the Commonwealth of Virginia to be admitted to the body politic of the State of West Virginia.”
“You’ve got Oregonians seeking to cascade into Idaho, Virginians who identify as West Virginians, Illinoians fighting to escape Chicago, Californians dreaming of starting a 51st state, and New Yorkers who think three states are better than one.”
” A group of frustrated Oregon conservatives who have tried everything from voting out Democratic state officials they consider too liberal to recalling the state’s governor and appealing to their Washington representatives, now want to leave the state – by moving the border with neighboring Idaho westward, a published report Monday said.
Over the past two years, the movement to divide the state of Illinois into two states — Cook County in one, the other 101 counties in the other — has been gaining support. In February, as Gov. J.B. Pritzker was pursuing an agenda for Illinois that included new tax and abortion policies, Halbrook refiled a resolution in the state legislature, HR 101, in which he and six co-sponsors asked the U.S. Congress to recognize Chicago as the 51st state.
“The current state of California has become governed by a tyranny,” the group, led in part by vice chairman Robert Paul Preston, declared in a document published online…
… The group, organized with a council of county representatives and various committees, hopes to model their split after the state of West Virginia.
