Let’s create some new states, shall we?
When considering the Virginia secession efforts, as well as other state secession efforts, let’s not forget that Maine was part of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts until 1820, when it voted to secede from Massachusetts to become a new and separate state. On March 15, 1820, under the Missouri Compromise, Maine was admitted to the Union as the 23rd state. Good job, eh.
Should we forget that particular precedent-setting secession action simply because ‘it’s old law, your honor’? I say no – states can still break up into smaller states if it makes sense for the people in a state to want the break-up done.
And, in that line of thought, does it have to make sense for rural areas of larger states (e.g. Virginia, Colorado, New York, etc.), to want to break away from communist big city controlled states? Isn’t this process just taking a big problem and dividing it up into smaller, more easily solvable problems? Would this secession action show us all how codependent the communist controlled big cities are on the rural communities? I’ll bet it would.
Is there some sort of law that says states cannot change their form of land area and government? I realize that the current state government constitutions provide for abidance to, and conformance with, the Constitution for the united States, but the wealthy and powerful who control the federal and state governments in 2020 consider the Constitution is dead anyway. Just ask Bloomy, Hillary, or any other government crime lord – they will tell you. But if there is no provision in the Constitution, then let it be done.
In the United States, we are quite over governed with local governments (except for the likes of Max, Nebraska), county governments, state governments, and the ever increasing and far more control-freak and onerous federal government. The point here is that there are already county government structures and organizations that could easily be used to define and ‘control’ newer states.
And, of course, for this discussion, we have that danged Declaration of Independence to consider.
“When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.”
So, what do you say – let’s just do it and say ‘phuq off’ to the big central government organizations that now exist. What – they have no bread? Let them eat toast. 😉
