    West Virginia says, "Come on over" to certain Virginia counties

    Omg how I love West Virginia. We're moving to the Charleston area in a few years and I can't wait.

    Whereas, In recent days, these tensions have been compounded by a perception of contempt on the part of the government at Richmond for the differences in certain fundamental political and societal principles which prevail between the varied counties and cities of that Commonwealth; and

    Whereas, In the latest, and most evident, in this string of grievances, the government at Richmond now seeks to place intolerable restraints upon the rights guaranteed under the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution to the citizens of that Commonwealth; and

    Whereas, The Legislative body of West Virginia believes that this latest action defies the wise counsel which has come down to us in the august words of our common Virginia Founders: as the government at Richmond now repudiates the counsel of that tribune of liberty, Patrick Henry-who stated to the Virginia Ratifying Convention in 1788 that “The great object is that every man be armed. Everyone who is able might have a gun”; and

    Whereas, The government at Richmond now repudiates the counsel of a Signer of the Declaration and premier advocate of American independence, Richard Henry Lee-who stated in The Federal Farmer that “To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms”; and

    Whereas, The government at Richmond now repudiates the counsel of that zealous guardian of our inherent rights, George Mason-who stated that “To disarm the people…[i]s the most effectual way to enslave them”; and

    Whereas, The government at Richmond now repudiates the counsel of the declaimer of our independence and theoretician of our freedoms, Thomas Jefferson-who stated in his first draft of the Virginia Constitution, that “No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms”; and

    Whereas, The Boards of Supervisors of many Virginia counties and the Councils of many Virginia cities have recognized this dangerous departure from the doctrine of the Founders on the part of the government at Richmond; and

    Whereas, These Boards of Supervisors and Councils have passed resolutions refusing to countenance what they affirm are unwarranted and unconstitutional measures by that government to infringe the firearm rights of Virginians; and

    Whereas, The actions of the government at Richmond undertaken since the recent general election have, regrettably, resulted in unproductive contention and escalating a lamentable state of civic tension; and

    Whereas, That, as has been proven in numerous instances, such as have been observed internationally in more recent times with the peaceful dissolutions of Czechoslovakia and the Soviet Union, and the creation of South Sudan, or, earlier in Virginia’s own history, with the formation of Kentucky, the peaceful partition of neighboring peoples can occur, and, is often very beneficial to both sides in reducing tensions and improving the tenor of discourse over ongoing political and societal differences; and

    Between the obesity rates, terrible economy, high rates of religion, mountaintop removal, and overall stupidity of its citizens, why the hell would anyone want to join the ****hole known as West Virginia?

    Self-employed, and my business is such that the local economy doesn't matter.

    high rates of religion,
    More precisely, high rates of Christianity - you know, like the Nordic countries you want the US to emulate. If there were high rates of Islam, you'd have a point.

    mountaintop removal,
    I agree that's bad, but it takes place mostly in a few counties, and coal production will continue to wind down anyway.

    For us it's the beautiful land, the very low taxes, and low regulation.

    Let's take a look at how your "beautiful" West Virginia is doing on quality-of-life scales.

    -Life expectancy: 2nd worst only to Mississippi. If it were a country, it would rank in 80th place, behind Mauritius and just ahead of Belarus.
    -American Human Development Index: 3rd worst, ahead of only AR and MS.
    -Median household income: Dead last.
    -Obesity: 2nd worst only to Mississippi (again).
    -Teacher salaries: 2nd lowest only to South Dakota.
    -Divorce rates: 6th worst. Note that the highest nine divorce rates come from Red states and the lowest seven come from Blue states.

    Tell me again what's so great about living in podunk West Virginia?

    The funny part of your post is that you are such a collectivist, it doesn't even occur to you that nothing you listed below affects me in any way. Like virtually all progressives, you can only think in terms of groups.

    None of this matters to me, why would it?

    -Teacher salaries: 2nd lowest only to South Dakota.
    Awesome! My kids never stepped foot in a government-run skool. West Virginia is on the right track, but they need to beat South Dakota.

    -Divorce rates: 6th worst. Note that the highest nine divorce rates come from Red states and the lowest seven come from Blue states.
    Who cares? My marriage is great.

    I'll take podunk WV any day of the week over SJW liberal land where your property taxes are higher than your mortgage.
