North Dakota Makes an Epic Fail and Finds out it’s not a State

Epic Fail

82-year-old John Rolczynski lives in Grand Forks, North Dakota. For some reason, he was reading through the state constitution. And he found a pretty big twist: Based on how it’s worded, North Dakota ISN’T ACTUALLY A STATE.

To be recognized as a state by the federal government, the constitution has to specifically establish that the state has a governor. North Dakota’s constitution doesn’t do that. It never mentions a governor.

That puts the state constitution in conflict with the U.S. Constitution. Technically, that makes it invalid. Without a state constitution, it’s not a state. So really, North Dakota has just been a TERRITORY all this time.

Of course, this is all a technicality. And it’s not like all the flags are going to get redone with 49 stars or anything like that.

Now that North Dakota has found out about the problem with their constitution, they’re working to change it to make sure they’re OFFICIALLY a state.
