Article. IV, Section 3:
“New States may be admitted by the Congress into this Union; but no new State shall be formed or erected within the Jurisdiction of any other State; nor any State be formed by the Junction of two or more States, or Parts of States, without the Consent of the Legislatures of the States concerned as well as of the Congress.”
The only way to do this is to cut off the supply of food and fuel to the cities...preferably this winter. Urban dwellers think they don’t need country folk, but they really do.
A cursory study showed that Colo went blue very quickly from +5 Bush in 2004 to +5 Obama in 2012.
I’m assuming this was mostly in-migration of illegals and coastal libs into metro areas.
Which would lead to the conclusion that the “boondocks” are still pretty salvageable.
I think they’d get further if they took the northern tier counties of CO and appealed to Wyoming for annexation.
Constitution aside, it would be great to get this done, let the socialists rot in their urban hellholes. Another prime candidate is California where the rural counties could regulate the urban water, power and food.
I wish we could dump New York city from the state of New York.
