North Colorado's dissent with current Colorado policies reflects a growing divide between those who produce goods and services (North Coloradoans) and those who rely on their work (the rest of Colorado). The 50 laboratories of government policies in America should be made 51.
Let the stupid right wing idiots go it will be worth it to hear the end of their complaining, if those idiots are mad about being regulated and can't seem to get mad about daily injustices going on in Africa, the middle east and South America then screw them.
If you give them their own state, they'll have two votes in the US Senate, out of 102.
actually your right they would have two, my mistake but if they want to succeed you can't really stop them.
As the article notes, they'd need permission from both Colorado and the US Congress. If they account for 70 percent of the Colorado budget, then Colorado won't want to let them go — so if Conway's justification for secession is valid then it's also a no-go.
I recall a few years ago, while driving down the I-25 through Weld County, my father in-law pointing out a distant hill overlooking the town of Niwot where, he claimed, one would occasionally see the conflagration of burning crosses. (this would have been back in the 50's, I believe).
I am not trying to lump the sensibilities of the population of northeastern Colorado together with this anecdote - the purpose of my recounting it is to stress the quite substantial differences between the City of Denver and rural areas of Colorado.
