Why are you now running away from th ewords of the Constitution that you claim anyone can read and understand??
It's obvious you don't understand Section IV
New States may be admitted by the Congress into this Union; but no new State shall be formed or erected 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.""
So now we have the fake Constitutionalis..t running away from the Constitution because it disagrees with his stupidity!!
Read this carefully, Dweeb. It's the US Constitution;
"but no new State shall be formed or erected within the Jurisdiction of any other State; "
Now you're stupidity has come full circle. From claiming you support sand defend the Constitution, to supporting a clearly unConstitutional Act.
You really blew it this time, Dweeb!!
The Virginia state legislature was comprised of the legislators that remained loyal to the federal republic.
The "other state" did not exist until it was authorized by the federal republic. The legislators that remained loyal to the federal republic became the legislature of the state of Virginia. The legislators that rebelled against the federal republic and became a functioning element of another country did not comprise the legislature of the state of Virginia as recognized by the federal republic the rebelled against and declared their standing as not being part of that federal republic.
Thus, those legislators that did not rebel had the authority to represent the state of Virginia in the federal republic, and had the authority to petition to split the state of Virginia into two separate states.
