3. Virginia, NC and Florida

are three states where a lot of Northerners have moved to, and the locals do not like it. Granted, they sure like the money and jobs that come with it, but they will want to play in that shining White Dixie that never was, the one where the ruling class did not treat them like crap. Thankfully, Florida is a blue state, but we know it has nothing to do with our state legislature, which tried everything (and I do mean everything) to silence minority votes, up to and including people bragging about killing black people and using the 'stand your ground" rule, otherwise known as the Zimmerman's hunting license for white people.

All the same Virginia, you better get on this. North Carolina, some of us took hits for you allowing the convention to be held in your state, after you fed up on the gay legislation, considering that Florida voted against the GOP, and you voted FOR them, the black eye is still felt, something I hope gets reflected when you ask for federal grants. Virginia, do not follow NC's example, or else maybe DC can become a state, or even better, Northern VA, aka the part of the state that pays more than half the state's taxes, may decide it does not need you. Ask the West Virginians if there is precedent.
