    I believe that is the way the process has to work. The Feds have to agree to it, and I have heard nothing about how they might react.

    Care to make a prediction? If it makes it to the US Congress, they will be faced with acknowledging that the Constitution actually exists. That will be a tough admission for many...

    I seriously doubt it will get there, but if it does I do not think they would let the split happen. What it MIGHT do though is set the precedent, paving the way for others in the future and that would be a good thing. Maybe especially for the State of Jefferson.

    Jefferson has a better chance than the current 3-way plan. The demographic profile of the State of Jefferson is much more conservative than any of the 3-way areas.

    We wait and watch.

    Interesting that it was the state courts which made this ruling.

    Also that there is a claim that a public vote could be dangerous... Too whom?

    Looks like TPTB wanted to get their ducks all lined up before allowing the public to express their opinion.

    We can't let the peasants think that they control themselves, or there might be an uprising.

    Heaven forbid that they should ask the public what it wants to do... That would be just Democratic...
