A proposal backed by several Colorado counties to form a new state called North Colorado is getting public support.
More than four dozen people showed up Thursday at the first public meeting to discuss a proposal to form a 51st state. Nearly all of them said they support secession.

Commissioners say legislative efforts to crack down on energy drilling and gun laws are prime reasons for

A fifty first state made up from Northern, Western and Southern Colorado makes perfect sense. The 75 to 100 mile corridor from Denver to Boulder could be separated out and made into the new State of Bould-Den where all the fruits and nuts already reside.

Ive read about several cases where counties within a state want to break away and form their own state, however many local news agencies spend very little or no time reporting those. Then again, Americans are more obsessed and go into riot form with news stories such as the Royal baby in England, a TV chef using the n-word, and a small 22 year old actress beating up her boyfriend.

It will never happen but it should start letting the liberal government know that not everyone is as content as they are even if it is only 24. There is an old saying that for every 1 that makes a noise there are at least 10 believing in the same cause but not advertising it. An idea has to start somewhere, that is how some elections get turned around.

The outcome in the election will be interesting.Should it happen there may be some other states that will be looking at this as a possible solution to get rid of more LIBerals.

Three things come to mind:

Legislators never have a firm grasp on what's going on in the provinces.

It doesn't matter how many ballot measures you field, it still must get past the legislature, and that ain't gonna happen.

So, four dozen citizens attended a rally. Isn't that just about half the Colorado population right there? ;)

So crack down on the crack heads.

There is no reason to crack up the state for a few cracker jacks.

They might try reading Aritcle IV Section 3 Paragraph of of the federal Constitution. Of course, if these are Won voters running a false flag operation, they haven't read any parts of the Constitution. Why should they? Their boss hasn't and look how he's prospered.

It has already been mentioned by hmw10284 and Whitebear about the previous attempt to split California in 1941. Now more than ever, southern California would like to split from Northern California.

There are movements all over to do this. Most people don't know but on December 8th the state of Jefferson was set to announce succession from California. The problem was on December 7th of the same year the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor and they thought better of it.

Sorry Whitebear did not notice your earlier post on this.
