How the Libs in the state legislature and in the cities react to this will be quite interesting.
My guess is that they will come out and say that the Northern Counties have no right to do any such thing and are subservient to the rest of the state.
But then Colorado wouldn’t be square. It’s one of only three states I can draw.
I would. Liberal cities are known havens and cesspool petrie dishes of terrorism and Marxism.
Per the Constitution all you need is 50,000 people and the consent of congress and consent of any states involved.
Cities are a blight on the face of the earth. They attract evil doers as manure attracts flies.
I’m all for this, but does it have a chance?
Yeah, yeah Pittsburgh is a Democrap haven, but the folks are good.
What would Hunter S. Thompson do?
The fight against the obuma fascists is happening on the local and state levels. For conservatives complaining that nothing is happening to fight the rat criminals, here’s one example. Let’s see if the mammon-worshipping conservatives get off their butts, organize, elect leadership and support these Colorado patriots.
I’d like to see Texas separate from Austin.
Most of Pennsy should abandon Philly and Upstate NY should leave NYC. Then Jersey can give Camden to Philly and Newark to NYC.
Its the war on conservative Colorado, not the war on rural Colorado. There is no way for my deeply conservative county to be contiguous with the possible break away counties. If this does go through, I wont be the only one considering a move to the north.....

This would be a great precedent if it occurs, showing other areas how to secede.
AS a Coloradoan outside the area I would vote to let them! ...then move there.
It’s always been the big-city bastions of smut and crime that drive the states. I say go for it, and starve out these parasitic areas.
While I support the idea of Northern Colorado, I really don’t see this happening until the Dems are no longer in power in the State. Perhaps a better fix would be to change the State Senate so that each county has one Senator representing them. This would require a change to the state Constitution and likely just as difficult.
With 64 counties, there would be only about 6 “city” like counties, greatly reducing the power of the cities in the legislative process. Currently the CO State Senate has 35 members (4 years per term, two term limit). Current make up is 20 Dems and 15 Republicans. If the two recall elections are successful, the mix will change to 18 Dems and 17 Republicans heading into the 2014 elections.
Colorado has to let them go
Why not East California, East Oregon, and East Washington?
