Some misguided members of our community are helping to spread false, and even slanderous information about the movement to form a 51st State — Liberty State. They have gone so far as to say ‘these people’ are motivated by hate and want a civil war. They were talking about you and me — those of us who want to be free from Olympia’s and Seattle’s extreme leftists’ policies. Although they say they’re not opposed to forming a new state, they are opposed to violence. Implying that supporters of Liberty State want violence is not only ignorant and absurd it is completely untrue if not slanderous!
It leaves me wondering… Are the critics truly that afraid of Liberty State? Or are they simply afraid of liberty?
So to set the record straight, the official position of the movement to form a 51st State (Liberty State) is based on the United States Constitution, which is the supreme law of the land and is clearly outlined in Article 4:
The First Clause of Section Three, also known as the Admissions Clause, grants to Congress the authority to admit new states into the Union.
And it reads:
New States may be admitted by the Congress into this Union; but no new States 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.
This is the peaceful and lawful process for forming a new state, and this is all we want. Anything to the contrary is a lie. Join me in spreading the truth, and standing for Liberty.
I’m Lady Liberty, and this is a Public Service Announcement on behalf of Liberty State. Visit us at LibertyState.org today.
