I'll just pull someting out of your own post here....Dweeb, the idiot Constitutionalis...t who's never read the Constitution!!
Not a single word in your post cites where in the Constitution a State can be broken up to create new states!!
You're making a fool of yourself again, as you did with your brainless talk about geothermal systems.
Try reading Article IV, Section 3, Clause 1 of the U.S. Constitution:
""The argument that West Virginia may not be a state rests on the troublesome language of Article IV, Section 3, Clause 1 of the U.S. Constitution:
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.
The mandate within the second clause --- that “no new State shall be formed or erected within the Jurisdiction of any other State”–-- appears to flatly prohibit the creation of a new state from within the territory of a preexisting state, irrespective of whether consent is given. The case of West Virginia, carved out from Virginia, would seem to fall under this prohibition.
WVA was created in defiance of the Constitution.
It is UnConstitutional on it's face, and you're still an idot!!
Time for you to run off and hide, greasemonkey!!
"...without the Consent of the Legislatures of the States concerned as well as of the Congress."
You prove your own point wrong.
