If you’ve been living in New York or California, and you leave and move to a new state, then typically you’d register to vote in your new home. In fact, that would be the process regardless of the states in question. However, California and New York are the focuses for Marjorie Taylor Greene, who says that people leaving either of those states could be banned from voting in their new location for a period of time, which she refers to as a ‘cooling-off period.’
She’s continuing commentary from other Twitter users. It starts with one Hari Raghavan, who says that he’s moving from California to Florida, but that he considers his new home to have ‘worse politics’ from his perspective.
Pedro Gonzalez, an editor for right-wing magazine Chronicles, chimes in to say that he’d support preventing a “transplant” from voting, because “Libs are a cancer. They are the absolute worst people in this country.” In fact, he says that voters like Raghavan “should have to pay a tax for their sins.”
I support actively discriminating against transplants like this through legislation. They shouldn’t be able to vote for a period, and they should have to pay a tax for their sins.

This is where Greene, who is an actual elected official playing a part in running the United States, chimes in, to assure her fans that such a voting ban is a very real possibility in her proposed “National Divorce.”
All possible in a National Divorce scenario.
After Democrat voters and big donors ruin a state like California, you would think it wise to stop them from doing it to another great state like Florida.
Brainwashed people that move from CA and NY really need a cooling off period. https://t.co/NB2dVj7n2X

Business Insider reported on Greene’s ‘National Divorce” proposal back in October, when she appeared on Steve Bannon’s podcast — where even he couldn’t get behind the idea, which would separate “Democratic states” and “Republican states.” Greene claims this would “wake up” Republicans who she thinks aren’t far-right enough, and make them “act like Republicans.” She also thinks it would show Democrats they “can’t do this to our country.”
