You want to see uneducated, drug infested, inbred , welfare hillbillys? Come on down to Smythe, Wythe or Washington countys in our great common wealth. Look no further. 3 meth labs busted in 2 months. 1 right next door to me. When are people going to see its an imaginary line that seperates our states. People are the same all over. You need to just see people for what they are. Not what you want to see. GO WVU!!!!!!!!!!

West Virginia is one of the few states in the US that is still able to pay their bills. I am not an uneducated hillbilly. You may call me a hillbilly-I do not take offense to that because I live in the hills. I am educated though. I can read, write and spell and I can do math. I was educated in Mercer County all of my life and am proud of that. I do not want to be a part of Virginia. I was born a West (by gosh) Virginian. I still chose to live in West Virginia and if I am lucky, I will die and be buried in West Virginia. I have lived in Virginia for about a year and was so glad to return home to West Virginia. I have visited other states and 4 other countries and I always look forward to coming home to West Virginia, the mountains, the beauty, and all of the things that I love. West Virginia, Almost Heaven, Home Sweet Home.

I'm a very proud and educated WEST VIRGINIAN. I do alot of traveling for my work. I've been to southwest Virginia iv been to the east coast of Virginia and I've been to northern virginia. I can tell you the people in West Virginia and southwest Virginia are better people than the rest of the up tight rude and disrespetful assholes that populate the rest Virginia

Why should we? What do they have that we cannot have? You want to live in a common state? Where laws are more stricter then the laws we have here? If you want to be reunited with Virginia, start packing your bags, am sure no one would miss you. That is a very simple way to fix the problem, get rid of the problem. Now let's go into the cold hard facts shall we. Virginia does have songs with their state name in it. Faith Hill and Tim McGraw owns property in WV. Virginia you have to be seperated with no sex with the soon to be ex for a year before its final. In Virginia you have to wait 3 days before you buy a gun, so forget leaving with it that very day. Less hunting abilities in virginia, no parking on grass in a state park down there. No riding atvs on side roads even dirt if its not your driveway. No radar dectors to get out of a spending ticket. Stricter fines. Oh geez so much more. Now what's your reasons to why we should revert?

I've lived in both. Virginia has lower taxes and lower insurance rates on auto and home. West Virginia has high taxes and fees, a workers compensation & disability culture/mentality, better state troopers that will cut you a break on speeding and not be anal, better state spirit.

Look the idiotic load of morons that Virginia has as their elected officials. Their Governor is as dumb as Sarah Palin and their Congressmen Cantor is one of the dumbest shitheads in congress. WV may be poor but at least we mostly elect qualified people for government.

And to the idiot that says WV pays their bills, WV gets massive federal dollars due to the poverty of it's people. That's why they can make their bills because the US Government is picking up a big chunk of them.

WV Split from Virginia because Virginia was shitheaded bigoted, traitor asshats. Piss on Virginia and never look back.

I kind of agree with the peerosn that made this forum. I moved to VA in my younger days and everyday I got picked on because I'm from WV. Esp one year when VT lost against WV. Everyday all I heard was how VT is gonna stomp Wv's ass. I could give a crap less about footbll, but WV one!! So it was my turn to talk crap about them!!! I hated VA and all the WV jokes they said to me. I can understand why they split WV and VA apart. ppl from VA think they are SO much better and they are all so snobby! Nothing against VA. My bff is from WV and moved to VA and loves it and I love her. She's still my bff but ppl from VA SUCK!!!!!

The culture in SW Virginia is basically the same as WV, the only difference is cost of living. There are sh@theads in both states and good, hard working people in both states. As far as the mountains, scenery, etc... Its the same mountain range, same wildlife, not really a big difference

One of the reasons WV really split from Virginia was so the coal barons could get their way. Lots of people are duped about what really goes on. The guys with the $$$ get the people without the $$ to do their bidding by using populism. Happens a lot not always. Now the people are trying to suck all they can out of the gov't, seems the states doing a 180.

Virginia was once the most powerfully state in the union, it can be so again. If Virginia, Kentucky, and West Virginia where to reunite it would have a population of 14 million people and an economy worth over 700 billion dollars. Do listen to these other guys, Virginia would welcome Kentucky and West Virginia to union. One Kentucky and West Virginia reunite with Virginia we can built your economics to be just as strong as ours, your education would join ours as one of the best in the nation, and your incomes would sky rocket. You would be a lot better off in your every day lives. Virginia would once again be the Great the Commonwealth it once was.

Think you are living on the wrong mountain top here...The states will never convert. Government not talking about reconverting these states. I am sure no state would go back. You people are living in a dream world. That's all I got to say about that. Get on the realistic page and talk. Nothing is wrong with any of our states. We are used to the area we lived in for years, we know how the system works and we just accept what it is. Why can't you? If you do live in WV & KY why do you care?
