What would that include? MD's Eastern Shore might be better off as part of VA -- despite VA's downward trajectory.

See the HPA and ObamaCare repeal.

Once Gov Justice said "come on down", the politicians went "oh sh*t".

Baltimore Sun has some coverage, not surprisingly biased toward "that was a mistake." Guess they didn't expect West (by God) Virginia to be so enthusiastic.

... and the BS isn't going to pass on an opportunity to make the conservative leaders look disorganized.

Why can't those counties revoke their consent to be governed by Annapolis? Force the issue. Just pass regional laws that say they will consider null and void any MD law that deals with gun control, taxation, immigration, education.

Whether they join WV or not, gerrymandering has removed all effective representation from them in Annapolis. So they should return the favor and refuse to acknowledge Annapolis as having legitimacy.

Pretty sure there is no provision in the MD Constitution for such action. MSP and National Guard occupation inbound.

Good. Call their bluff. What are they going to do? Start arresting/shooting local politicians? Leftists get away with this bc no one on the right or even center stands up, draws a red line, and means it. They should be such a pain in the ass for Annapolis that eventually the powers that be will beg WV to take those counties.

Eastern Shore should throw a log on the fire and ask to be part of DE or VA.

Like I said, make Delmarva it's own state.

If that did happen east of the bay bridge, all the people who work for the state would end up being let go due to the changed situation plus ALL state items owned on the eastern shore MD would have to sell because they do not need them anymore as well and I would hope that would make the people wonder in the MGA what in the world are they doing wrong that so many people want to leave md?? or they would send in MSP and the national guard to remind them of their "loyalties" to the state. If that did happen I wonder how many state troopers and National Guard would refuse that order?? but then who knows what would happen but as it being a "stupid" idea it is not a "stupid" idea at all to the people who live in the western counties at all. They are very serious and want to leave kommie MD and I for one do not blame them..
