Multiple counties consider seceding from this state if the Governor has his way
Democrats in the Old Dominion are ready to shred the Constitution and pass some of the most radical socialist schemes in America.
But residents of the “Mother of the Presidents” Commonwealth are fighting back at every level.
And now multiple counties are even preparing to secede if the Governor has his way.
Last November was a dark day in the history of Virginia, the once proud “Mother of Presidents,” and home to the authors of both the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.
Democrats already controlled the Governor’s mansion with Democrat Ralph “Blackface” Northam, most famous for advocating for infanticide in an interview and for wearing either blackface or a KKK robe in his Med School Yearbook.
Then, in a shock to most, Democrats swept the state house and state senate in overwhelming fashion last November.
When the dust had settled, Democrats had put in power a radical left-wing mob of socialist leaning state delegates and senators ready to pass sweeping new restrictions on freedom.
First up on their agenda of terror, severe restrictions on gun ownership in a state where citizens are currently allowed to carry weapons openly in public.
And now, what started as a joke, has turned into a real effort.
According to the Washington Examiner West Virginia officials and lawmakers are working to pave the way for some rural Virginia counties to join the Mountain State.
It is a growing battle that in many ways is reminiscent of the Civil War-era split of Virginia that created West Virginia in 1863.
Already 40 of West Virginia’s 100 House delegates have signed on to a bill that would accept any revolting Virginia counties and towns to join West Virginia.
West Virginia House of Delegate member Gary Howell, a Republican said, “We’re starting to get some phone calls from friends on the border who say these folks want to leave.”
He told the Examiner that what many thought was a joke “has turned into a real thing.”
He also stated that Virginia elected officials from mainly rural counties on or near the West Virginia border have told him the Democrats’ push for radical gun control and the push to take tax payer money from rural counties and spend it in the Washington, D.C. suburbs, along with disgust at the Governor’s push to allow after birth “abortions” are reasons many want to leave for West Virginia.
Howell’s legislation, HCR 8 is an open invitation for any county or city who wishes to leave the Commonwealth to join with West Virginia.
With at least two county’s law enforcement agencies declaring they will not enforce the unconstitutional gun laws, this move to join with West Virginia may have more support than was once thought.
In fact, Frederick County still has an open invitation from the 1800’s to join with West Virginia and some members of the Frederick Board of Supervisors are already entertaining a vote to leave the Old Dominion.
