State of Jefferson, eastern Oregon joining Idaho -- it's an idea that's quickly gaining traction in a divided country.
This is especially true as the elites/deep state that currently governs becomes more and more ridiculous in it's ideology. They seem to have simply forgotten what gender is, what racism really is, or that a country needs borders. Who wouldn't want to eject from that plummeting jet?
A Republican Minnesota state representative is introducing legislation that would create a pathway for Minnesota counties to secede from the state and join the South Dakota.
Rep. Jeremy Munson (R-Crystal Lake) introduced the bill Thursday and tweeted out an image of his vision, which depicted nearly every county west of the Twin Cities metro as part of a newly imagined South Dakota.
"Minnesota becomes more politically polarized every year and the metro politicians have shown us that rural Minnesotans are no longer represented by St Paul. It's time to leave," read a webpage on Munson's campaign website.
The idea echoes a similar push among rural Oregon counties to join Idaho.
Republican South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem appeared to be in support of Munson's idea, by retweeting his plan.
"In South Dakota, we roll out the red carpet for people who love personal responsibility and Freedom," tweeted Noem.
Good for him and I hope the counties vote to split off, while avoiding the pre-vote madness that occurred in "bleeding Kansas". There may be a Constitutional issue with this, but if some people get to ignore Constitutional issues, then everyone gets to ignore them.ReplyDelete
What constitution, the one that the politicians have been ignoring for more than a century? It never applied to me in the first place. Every time someone brings up the seceding thing there's always a Karen that says it won't work because, "It's never been done before.", laughable on it's face.Delete
Ah, lighten up, ghost. I'm no Karen. I doubt you'll be in the Portland OR area anytime soon, but if you were, we should have a beer. I think we'd get along.Delete
But it was done before - after all, WV was carved off of VA in 1863. The Union had no problem with the Constitutionality of doing that.ReplyDelete
The catch is BOTH state legislatures have to agree. Same same with Jefferson or any such scheme.ReplyDelete
I can foresee if this were to happen, it would set off a tsunami of similar schemes as the people put pressure on the various states. That wouldn't be altogether a bad thing as it is mainly the folks who want to be left alone who are pushing for these realignments. However, in the big picture, it might be easier to change the legislature of the existing states. After all, it is the political bent of existing legislatures which are the impetus for such schemes. As such, good luck getting them to agree and approve to a loss of territory of their existing state.
The whole point of the exercise is to divorce the big Blue cities from the lower density countryside. They will have to get creative in making threats to those cities to get them to give it up. You can't bribe them, so threats are the only recourse.Delete
This could be the next great migration. This could be a solution for Southern IL.ReplyDelete
