Colorado Counties Want To Secede To Form 51st State.

DENVER, CO (KDVR) – A collection of rural counties in Northern Colorado have begun informally discussing seceding from Colorado to form a 51st state.

Sean Conway, the Weld County commissioner, is leading the collection of counties such as Weld, Morgan, Logan, Sedgwick, Phillips, Washington, Yuma and Kit Carson counties in forming the new state.

These primarily Republican counties feel as though the Democrat-controlled legislature has been ignoring the values of rural counties when passing recent legislation including gun control measures, expanding oil and gas production and creating new renewable energy standards for rural areas.

This should be interesting. The idea of states seceding from the United States or the "Union" has been floating around for some time.

But the idea of a state breaking up...

Wonder if these states were formed in a similar fashion, Virginia and West Virginia, North and South Dakota?

Time to expand the "stars and stripes". We many have a bunch of new additions!

Also looks like the national corporate media is trying to get ahead of the story.

Here is a CBS article but it but makes no mention of gun laws:

Several counties want to secede from Colorado.

Where will the extra star on the flag go?

If they do it, I believe more would follow.

They aren't talking about seceding from the United States, they are talking about forming their own state. Giant difference there.

Colorado is a very conservative state excluding maybe "The people's republic of Boulder", and Denver. To me, this sounds like more of the "They aren't conservative enough for us ultra right wing loonies so we wanna take our ball and go home!"
