LEE ZELDIN'S GALLANT BUT FAILED BID FOR NYS GOVERNOR
WAS THE PROOF THAT WAS NEEDED TO ILLUSTRATE TO LONG ISLANDERS
THAT NYC, BUFFALO, ROCHESTER, WESTCHESTER AND ALBANY DONT CARE ABOUT YOU AND YOUR LIVELIHOOD
LEE ZELDIN WON 49 - 13 COUNTIES IN NY - AND STILL LOST
Zeldin’s powerhouse was his native Long Island.
Not only did he flip Suffolk and Nassau counties red, he won them by 17 points and 11 points respectively.
Zeldin also received about 76,000 more votes in each county than did Marc Molinaro.
Zeldin also dominated in Staten Island, winning by over 30 points in the borough that Cuomo had won by 1.5 points in 2018.
Consequently, it was the county with the biggest swing in the state from four years ago
LEE ZELDIN HAS EARNED THE PEOPLE'S NOMINATION TO BE LONG ISLAND STATE'S FIRST GOVERNOR
THE CASE FOR LONG ISLAND STATEHOOD
Section 1. Legislative findings:
Nassau and SuffolkCounties comprise an area of 2,826 square miles, larger than the states of Rhode Island and Delaware.
The combined population of the two counties is 2.798 million which is greater than the population of 19 states.
Long Island's Nassau and Suffolk counties are home to 125 public school districts, containing a total of 656 public schools.
For the years 2002-2004
Long Island paid 8.124 billion dollars in state taxes yet only 5.2 billion dollars was returned in direct local aid, tuition assistance, highway aid, pension payments, lottery money, metropolitan transportation authority subsidies and Medicaid payments.
For many years the question of forming the state of Long Island has been discussed in public and academic forums.
The issue should be investigated, a report prepared and referendum held in Nassau and Suffolk counties so the citizens may be heard.
3+ BILLION $$$ REASONS FOR LONG ISLAND TO BECOME THE 51st STATE
“A unified voice from both Nassau and Suffolk counties would send a serious message to
Albany that we reject their illegitimate taxes and fees upon Long Islanders,” said Sawicki
who has long promoted the idea of secession as a way to solve Long Island’s fiscal woes.
“The Dowling college study has proven that we send over $3 billion more to Albany than we get back.
That $3 billion can provide enormous tax relief for Long Islanders instead of being used to bail out the rest of the State.”
Long Island Meets All the Constitutional Requirements and Criteria to become a State
Long Islanders pay the more taxes than any of the largest cities in the Country and if we become a State we would be able to keep our money on Long Island so we can rebuild Long Island in a futuristic manner. It's Time we make this Happen! If we became a State, Long Island would have such a windfall of money, we could completely rebuild Long Island in such a way that we could easily become a model to the rest of the Nation. We would be able to actually see our tax dollars at work.
This Movement was already proposed many years ago and some politicians have pushed the issue as far as they can without sacrificing their Political Careers and like just about everything else that politicians take charge of, the most sensible solutions to our Greatest Problems, winds up in a political roadblock and then gets shelved until it can benefit a politicians election or re-election campaign. It's time for Long Islanders to take control of the Ball and carry it over the Goal line which would result in Long Island becoming the 51st State. What a Great State Long Island would be.
All these years of toying with this idea of Statehood and no website to help educate Long Islanders on how this could happen and the pros and cons of becoming a State. Studies have been done, preliminary legislation has be done, so why dont we hear more about this issue since this will provide a platform that will introduce 100s of thousands of jobs, businesses would flourish again like never before, Infrastructure would be rebuilt 100 of times better than in the past, Our Colleges and Universities would be recognized nationwide attracting and keeping our youth on Long Island, so many benefits to Long Islanders that it will take this entire website to illustrate them all.
This Website www.LongIslandState.org will provide you will all the information and resources available on this Movement up to present day, and then will take you into the future so you can see how this movement can effect your everyday lives and communities on Long Island.
This Website Will Keep You Updated on this Movement toward Statehood!
Let's Build Long Island State Together and help our politicians do the job that we sent them to do, and that is to represent the will of their constituents and make things happen that benefit Long Islanders. Time for them to be accountable and earn their pay and entitlements by carrying out the will of the people that put them in a position of power to make this happen.
Long Island Meets All the Constitutional Requirements and Criteria to become a State
So Why is it that we are not a State Yet?
It's time for Long Islanders to take control of Long Island because Politicians will not make this happen unless
"We the People Demand and Declare It"
If they dont cooperate we fire them in 2024 and 2026.
Most Politicians are looking at upward mobility and their political careers run into the State and Federal Bureaucracy whenever a local issue interferes with their aspirations for federal office.
This is why "We The People" must make this happen
WeMust have this issue of Long Island Statehood placed on the 2024 and 2026 General Election Ballots
so people can vote on this issue ASAP! This is of Utmost importance to fixing Long Island.
Are You Mad Yet? Sorry, But That's Not Enough To Change Anything
The Question is: Are You Mad Enough Yet to Change Something!
The Most Recent Hurricanes (Noreasters) Irene and Sandy have shown us that we must take charge of Long Island
Relying on New York State and (FEMA) Federal Government to Help Us Rebuild is a Ridiculous thought.
We are more than capable of helping ourselves, Long Islanders demonstrate a sense of Selflessness like no other.
We Dont Want Handouts and Government Money
THE SIMPLE PLAN THAT MAKES LONG ISLAND A STATE
The So-Called Obstacle:
Under Article Four, Section 3, clause 1 of the federal Constitution, both the New York State Legislature and the United States Congress would need to approve any secession from New York
THIS IS HOW WE MAKE IT HAPPEN - DO NOT ASK POLITICIANS FOR ADVICE - THEY ARE ON THE WRONG TEAM
THE TENNESSEE PLAN
OK — so the Tennessee Plan, you've probably never heard of it unless you are from Tennessee or Alaska. Apparently, some of those who took an oath to protect and defend the Constitution haven't heard of it either. When Tennessee first came to the Union, it had a different name; it was first called "Territory of the United States South of the River Ohio." It was a U.S. territory, just like Puerto Rico is now.
But instead of waiting for Congress to decide if they wanted to make the territory a state, they took a different, bold route: They forced the issue themselves:
• They elected delegates for Congress
• They voted on statehood
• They drafted a state constitution
• And applied for statehood
• Then, when Congress dragged their feet, they went to the Capitol and demanded to be seated
Congress was unsure of how to proceed; this was the first territory going for statehood. They relented and Tennessee became America's 16th state. Alaska did many of the same things.
Again, the Tennessee plan in a nutshell:
• Unsuccessfully petitioning Congress for admission
• Drafting a state constitution without prior congressional intervention
• Holding state elections for state officers, U.S. senators and representatives
• In some cases, sending the entire congressional delegation to Washington to demand statehood and claim their seats
• Finally, Congress has little choice but to admit a new state through the passage of a simple act of admission
THERE IS NO REASON THIS PLAN CANT WORK FOR LONG ISLAND
This argument has been going on for years, and in 1896 legislation was passed in order to make Long Island it's own state, but no action was ever performed.
We were so close, and now it's time for Long Island to escape the financial constraints the rest of New York has put on us.

THE HISTORY OF LONG ISLAND STATEHOOD - WIKIPEDIA
Long Island, a large island directly south of New England, has made attempts in the past to secede from New York and become its own state. Mentions of Long Island secession range from 1896 to 2010. The proposed 51st state has also speculated the combination of Nassau and Suffolk counties into one county in order to reduce costs.
The state of Long Island would include over 2.7 million people, not including the more populous west end of the island. Nassau County executive Ed Mangano came out in support of such a proposal in April 2010 and was said to be commissioning a study on it.
THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU LEAVE IT UP TO POLITICIANS
The first known proposal of Long Island as its own state was published in The New York Times in 1896.
Sugar refiner Adolph Molenhaur claimed other big cities in New York did not take Long Island into account when making decisions and were spending money without any benefit to Long Island's interests.
a non-binding vote took place in which the idea of secession was approved. However, no further action was taken at that time.
In 2009, there was a call for home rule of Long Island by political leaders who were angry about a tax. Suffolk County was on board with the plan but Nassau County showed no support.
In 2010, the Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano had a plan to combine Nassau and Suffolk counties and to secede from New York and wanted to formally look into the idea.
SUPPORTERS VS. NON-SUPPORTERS
Supporters see secession not only as a major way to save money, but also as a way to keep Long Island unique, and to refrain from unwanted changes being made by New York state.
The non-supporters do not agree with the logistics behind creating a separate state and do not think that the state and the government would agree to it.
An extreme supporter is Cesidio Tallini. He created a micronation named Winnecomac, originally named Independent Long Island until February 2nd 2013, special code "WQ", which aims for the entire island of Long Island to become a nation separate from the United States. This idea was not popular among Long Islanders, but has gained attention from the media. Tallini was featured in the 2011 History Channel series How the States Got their Shapes, as well as in a 2007 article in The New York Times.
NON-SUPPORTERS SHOWED NO LOGIC FOR THEIR REASONING OTHER THAN THEY WERE COWARDS

ALWAYS REMEMBER THE TENNESSEE PLAN WHEN CONFRONTED WITH OPPOSITION FROM THE COWARDS AND PROGRESSIVES
Tennessee Admitted: June 1, 1796 Population: 77,262 Prior time as territory: 6 years Journey to statehood: Took place without congressionally approved "enabling act," and in so doing blazed a trail for six future states that would similarly barge into the Union without first being invited. Tennessee's first two "senators" were denied entry to Congress, but the territory later lobbied successfully for admission. Its first officially recognized congressman, Andrew Jackson, was elected in August 1796.
