        Gotta grow that voter base, right Ralph? Ensure Democrat rule forever?

        RICHMOND — Gov. Ralph Northam wrote to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Monday to say that Virginia would welcome more refugees, pointedly declining President Trump’s offer to let states and localities veto resettlements.

        “Virginia’s lights are on and our doors are open, and we welcome new Virginians to make their homes here,” Northam wrote.

        “In recent years, as the federal government has lowered the number of refugees accepted into the United States, Virginia’s refu­gee number has dropped,” Northam wrote in his letter. “We have the capacity to accept and help more refugees than we currently have.”

        Northam spoke of refu­gee programs as the embodiment of American ideals.

        “The United States has long presented itself as a haven, a place of stability and economic prosperity,” Northam wrote. “We promote the ideals upon which this country was founded, of liberty and freedom. But to uphold those ideals abroad, we must allow access to them here at home. We must practice what we preach.”

        This is how we lose the country and due to reproductive rates among the “new Americans,” probably already lost.

          Of course!

          They know their recent victory isn’t permanent yet.

              No problem just amend the constitution and write in whatever term limits you want. Ingorance and a speedy process topped with a big helping of tyranny.

              SJ 6 Constitutional amendment; Governor’s term of office (first reference).

              Introduced by: Adam P. Ebbin | all patrons … notes | add to my profiles
              SUMMARY AS INTRODUCED:

              Constitutional amendment (first resolution); Governor’s term of office. Permits a Governor elected in 2025 and thereafter to succeed himself in office. The amendment allows two four-year terms (either in succession or not in succession) but prohibits election to a third term. Service for more than two years of a partial term counts as service for one term.

                Another step towards the communist utupia.

                Question: why are white Christians, and only white Christians, prohibited from acting in their rational self-interest?
