What? West Virginia Invites Virginia Counties to Switch States

It’s unheard of in these modern times for states to add new territories of land to their governance. But for the state of West Virginia, that may be exactly what is about to happen, much to the dismay of Governor Northam of the neighboring state of Virginia.

In case you are unaware, Governor Northam, with the help of other Virginia Democrats have just called for the most liberal gun-control laws the state and the nation have ever seen. As a result, he has some not so happy constituents, many of whom are planning a march on Capitol Square in Richmond on January 20, 2020. And let’s just say it won’t be a small gathering in protest.

Tens of thousands, many from out of state, are joining his constituents to make their intentions of not having their Second Amendment rights trampled on known. Needless to say, the governor is a bit worried. In fact, I’d call it freaking out.

I mean, he just called for a ‘state of emergency’ around the capitol. This basically means that anyone arriving into the surrounding Capitol Square area will be banned from bringing any sort of weapons with them, including the firearms they are fighting to keep and even helmets and shields.

But now Northam has something else to worry about: the loss of much-needed constituents and congressional seats, as many will have the ability to consider trading in their state name.

And while it might seem a tad ludicrous to some, it is, in fact, a very real possibility.

The state government in Charleston, West Virginia, has even already introduced legislation on the matter.

The legislation reads, “Whereas, Article VI, Section 11 of The Constitution of the State of West Virginia explicitly permits additional territory to be admitted into, and become a part of this state, with the consent of the Legislature and a majority of the qualified voters of the state.”

Therefore the state is offering an open 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, under the conditions set forth in our state Constitution.”

Naturally, there would have to be a process of sorts for this to actually happen, as Breitbart has pointed out.

Firstly, both houses of the West Virginian legislature would have to approve of the offer. Then the proposal would be sent and the special elections would have to be held in the Second Amendment sanctuary counties or cities that are interested. A majority of the constituents there would have to vote for the move.

This ruling would then have to go back to West Virginia so that voters there could consider the matter. If they agree that said counties can become a part of their state, then it can become official, and the maps redrawn.

So it is indeed very possible. And for some counties more so than others.

Fredrick County, for example, which lies at the northern tip of the both states’ borders and shares West Virginia’s pro-Second Amendment ideals, has already had a resolution passed in the West Virginia Senate to join the state. And Republican Senator Charles Trump, who sponsored the resolution, says this is not the first time Fredrick County has had such an offer.

He said, “As I read through some of the materials from the records – from the convention in 1862 that – there was an expressed invitation to Fredrick County.”

Now that the bill has passed the Senate, it moves on to the House of Delegates. And as mentioned above, if it passes there, on to the constituents of Fredrick County, Virginia.

In the next few weeks and months, we could see a complete restructuring of the two states if Northam doesn’t back down and listen to his citizens. And I doubt he will look forward to that, after all, he would cost his government a great deal of power.

And we all know that that’s what these crazy liberals thrive on.

  1. Excellent! you west Virginia’s are good people. Love you and admire you.

  2. I agree. It is bizarre that moron bote for these sickos

  3. Why would anyone vote for an angry old rich white arrogant silver spooned male faking to care about others like bloomberg? That is just a wierd thought

  4. God lost Schiff! And Nadler and Pelosi and the current ed nt pope. If god didnt loose some there would not be hell!

    Your a little too pollyanna

  5. Yup california sucks. It is the second worst state in the country. No offense but it would be really nice if the san andris fualt broke open and dumped LA and San Francisco into the ocean about 300 feet down in thirteen seconds. It would be good for the whole country.

  6. But they are n ki f talking n.v g about new states. They are talking about adjusting the border of current states. Whole different subject matter area

  7. You are SO RIGHT

  8. I am in West Virginia and Proud of it most of the times. I would welcome any County or city of Virginia who wants to come to us to do so. Our MOTTO is: Mountaineers Are Alway Free. We believe in our 2nd Amendment Rights and will Defend them always. GOD and the U.S. Constitution is what I try to live by and invite anyone else to do so as well.

  9. As I drive in the area that is under consideration, I can fill in a bit about it. Fredrick County in the home of Winchester, Va. And a number of smaller cities. It is divide East and West by I-81. In the South is also I-66. Through the middle it has US-50 which before the Interstates were built ( I-66,I-81, and I-&0 ) was the main East-West highway from as far away as CA to Delaware. US-48 ( AKA Corridor H ) is set to replace it as the main US highway as it is being 4-laned thru WV. The area is Apple Country and is the home of the White House brand which makes pure Apple Juice as one of its products. Stephens City is where we often overnight going from Ohio to Lorton, VA. Distant relatives of mine donated land earned during the war for the founding of a church in that county. Sadly, the headstones in most cases were destroyed in the Civil War. As this county was one of the ones that was offered the chance to join WV in the Civil War, it would not require Richmond’s approval as the government in WV was the true government of the State of VA when VA seceded from the Union.

  10. The first real step into turning an intelligent People of a well ordered Monarchy or a FREE Republic into greedy, worthless Boobs is to convince that “Democracy”, with its’ attendant rigged “opinion polls” and FREE everything, is best.

  11. I am a Missourian and I agree with you. Perhaps WV will kickstart it all.

  12. Unfortunately these libraturds HAVE been elected but by the liberal idiots in the densely populated but small in area of the rich assholes that work and thrive in the DC SWAMP!!! Financed by the likes of George Soros and Michael Bloomberg Northam and his ilk are in for a set amount of time unless they are impeached. Pray for the good citizens of the Commonwealth of Virginia. Now it is even going to be against the law to criticize these turds!!! First the 2nd Ammendment then the 1sr Amendment then all the rest of the Ammendments that proclaim the “Rights of the people” will be taken away. That is what the Soros’ of this country are pushing toward and the low information democrat voters are going for it!!!

  13. That is an excellent idea. Other states should go that route. Hit these morons in their power pocketbooks. That is all they understand. Why the heck Northam retained his seat is a mystery for the ages.

  14. Unfortunately the way the voting system is set up, no one knows. When I was at the voting booth, they separated Republican and Democrat. Reps were issued a red ticket and dems a blue one. The red tickets were nearly over flowing the bucket and the blue ones were barely covering the bottom. Now there some unknowns, as did they already have the empty the blue bucket, etc, but it does make me wonder.

  15. In Connecticut the state government is looking into setting up a committe to review the names of high school sports teams to make sure they’re politically correct.

  16. In the army they used to say the California state flag was of a faggot with an exhaust pipe stuck up his ass trying to screw a palm tree. Don’t know how factual that is.

  17. Who votes for these people ?
    That’s what scares the HELL out of me !!!!

  18. I wish an article such as this one would include a simple map of the areas in question. Not only are such maps informative on a particular subject, they also serve to educate the public on geography.

  19. I would love to see this happen!! Finally people are starting to take a stand against Socialism and are tired of being controlled by States who do not consider what the public and their citizens want. I hope Southern Illinois would have a proposal from other states as they wish for this same thing. It gives those who care about this country the ability to fight back! There should definitely be term limits. Pelosi , Schumer, among others both Democratic and Republican have been in there too long and are using their power to affect election outcomes. God help and bless America.

  20. 3 cheers for West Virginia! It’s possible if this is successful, other states may follow suit. There’s a lot of people in dummycrat controlled states that are sick and tired of the whole state being controlled by a few urban dummycrat strong holds that don’t represent the whole state.

  21. Why would any sane county of another state want to become a part of Virginia a state controled by s bunch of Democratic lunatics who want to control every phase of your life, including those constitional rights such as not having to kill your children, that one has in any other state.

  22. What would work best is to just split off the area around DC as it’s own state and leave VA alone.

  23. Bloomberg Supports this , Remember that if you consider voting for him

  24. Good job West Virginia. It is clear that Northam is going to have to learn somehow that he will be stumped and this is a rally good way. Turn Virginia into a worthless little state and make west Virginia more powerful. Perfect.

    All Deomcrats at nothing more then sick animals and need to be put down.

  25. All divisions on both sides is because of a lack of unconditional Love called God. Which God allows.
    So that Evil should rise up against Evil and perdition should ensue. God still stands by waiting for them to repent that He loses no one.

  26. You are misreading the Constitution.. it states: NEW States may be admitted .. ect.. West Virginia is not a NEW state. The Constitution is not talking about counties moving from one established State to another. What you are reading would apply to Southern CA that wants to establish a NEW state of Southern CA. This is a merger of counties that would fall under the
    state constitution, not the federal one.

  27. Well, West Virginia was created out of Virginia. Virginia didn ‘t agree, but there you see them both !

  28. I’m in So. California and wish my county could be in Arizona or Nevada! Ca sucks under our Marxist govt. Used to be great and I am a 3rd generation Californian!

  29. The U.S. Congress, as well as the Legislatures of BOTH states will have to approve the changes, according to the United States Constitution, Article II, Section 3, Paragraph 1:

    “New States may be admitted by the Congress into the Union; but no new State shall be formed within the jurisdiction of any other State; nor any State be formed by the Junction of two or more States, or parts of States, without the consent of the Legislatures of the States concerned as well as of the Congress.”

    Since the VirginiaHouse of Delegates is unlikely to approve such a raid on their territory, the matter is effectively moot.

  30. it would be nice if Kentucky,indiana or missouri would do the same for us in southern Illinois
