Sign this everybody so we can send this to Barack Obama and his advisor to let them know that West Virginia no longer wishes to exist

it is time for us to go home, it is time for us to rejoin the Commonwealth

Puerto Rico can take our place as a state to keep the US at 50

Plain and simple: NO MORE WEST VIRGINIA. LONG LIVE UNITED VIRGINIA
Oh no

do you know how corrupt and dangerous Mexico is?

plus how is Mexico going to help us finacially and developmently unlike Virginia which takes care of its own

that would be silly, people needing passports and visa to enter um North Mexico.. although you may have something- we would get alot of migrant workers. and the state would become huge but wed have to learn spanish

Originally that seemed like an assinine idea. However upon reflection, considering the EPA and the far lefts obsession with everything "green" we will probably be out of business soon anyway.

We will have to replace all of those jobs, income, and tax monies from somewhere, so why not let Virginia pay for all of our unemployment, welfare etc.

Yep, that's it...Where do we sigh?:)

My point is that West Virginia is operating in the black and doing well. Why would join with a state that has been in the red for years? No thanks.

because coal is getting ever so steadily squeezed out of existenence by the EPA

and as soon as they Perfect nuclear power and can widely distrubute it the Coal Counties will be devastated.. Timber has already fell flat on its face in WV. literally the only county that wont look like MCDowell and WWyoming is Monghalia or watever the one is wit WVU

and even that will begin to become a dark place as less and less out of state students go to Morganclown

IF WV is in the black as politicians claim how come they do not do the things they claimed they would do when they reached the black ?
Entire food tax gone, gas tax gone, turnpike tolls gone, etc etc etc and a whole host of other " we will only do this a short time untill WV is in the black then we will drop it off "..?? That was the promise of Govenors and WV Congress members who voted for all those hikes over the years..and yet WV has been in the so called black for 5 to 6 years now according to them....

WV seceded from Va. during the Civil War era . 1861 ? It was due to slavery and the west joined the union. It divided on solely a political event. A event that is no longer a subject to be considered. And why not allow at least the southern counties to seced back to Va. The entire US was divided over that issue, so why now can't WV be divided by issues that cost people jobs, homes and a vast many other problems politicians in Charleston keep stirred up in the state ? Sure Va has its issues as well...but so far the two can become one again and a power in the region that would rival Washington DC and demnd a fix...as other states to may join in to become many states into one and let D.C. know...everyohne is tired of the norm and the destruction of the U.S as a whole.....why not become the WHOLE ??!!

Your comment is well-stated. My husband and I were having this discussion earlier before he left. The keep it simple, this country used to be one of the richest and most powerful countries in the world. This country had balls. The citizens of the U.S. ruled the U.S.. It was a true democracy. This country is getting a step closer each day to being led under a dictatorship. 90% of the population no longer have a backbone. If everyone in America would pull together and say "F*** YOU! You're not telling us we HAVE to do this and you're not telling us we CAN'T do that", elected officials in Washington D.C. wouldn't stand a snow storm's chance in hell! We have sit quietly by and said, "Oh well! Let them do whatever they want to do and whatever makes them happy as long as they leave me alone!" It's sad but it's true! Our founding fathers are rolling in their graves right now!

The division of WV from Virginia most certainly was NOT based on a single political event.
There was the question of slavery of course. The western counties were not well suited for large plantations therefore less "need" for slaves.
There were religious differences also.. East of the mountains the major religion was Episcopal full of mostly "aristocratic" people..Those in the West were Methodist, Baptists, presbyterians etc...
Those in the west felt they were under represented in Virginia and their problems were basically ignored.
This started LONG before the Civil War.

The argument could be made the formation of WV was ILLEGAL since the Constitution states no state can be fromed from an existing state without that states permission..
Virginia seceeded from the United States illegally, therefore it was LEAGAL for the west to stay IN the United States.
That was Abe Lincoln's view of it, so June 20, 1863 we became the 35th state.

Pride of what the 49th worse state in the United States in almost every category there is?

And the separation came about by ONE political issue...as I stated before....it says that also in your link . You should read more about what you post, then maybe real history and facts you will learn and come to understand. Had it NOT BEEN for that ONE issue we still would be part of Va...and NO Church groups had ANYTHING to do with that Fact of History...it was ALL political driven and motivated...Real History Lesson now is Over !!

and for Future reference ..that SAME Political motivation drives this country ever downward in its spiral of decay !! The Problem , they leave GOD out of everything Now , just like they did then !!
