As many as eight counties composing the rural, oil and gas-rich northeast corner of the state are pursuing a plan to cut ties with a capital city they no longer feel represents their interests and come together as the 51st state in the country: North Colorado.

“We’re actually going to pursue it,” said Weld County Commissioner Douglas Rademacher, a farmer whose jurisdiction is spearheading the effort. “Frankly, we’ve been ignored in northeastern Colorado now for the last, going on eight years with the current administration in Denver.”

“Frankly, we see no option,” he said. “We are going to move forward.”

Everybody has had it and is beginning to remove themselves from moonbat oppression.

They say that the state of Colorado has been ignoring their will, that they have no representation when it comes to their land and how it should be used.

I would love to see this.

DonInDenver 06-07-2013 02:51 PM

I would also, but, it takes 7500 votes or so to get it on the ballot. I know they are serious, but I doubt they will get it passed. I hope they do!

Good luck. Never will happen. Never.

I agree. I'd move from Denver and join them in a heartbeat, but it ain't happening.

Secession/Nullification fever hitting Vermont too!

Vermont Independence Movement:

Quote:

According to one estimate at the Tenth Amendment Center, which tracks such things, there are more than 70 proposed bills to nullify federal laws and practices now in state legislatures, sometimes consciously labeled nullification, sometimes not.
At the end:

So there you have it. Unassailable logic. A state that wants to do things differently from the dictates of the Federal government has to start by nullifying the laws it does not want to live under—and eventually it will have to “become more itself” by “going its own way.” That’s called secession—and who knows? On the basis of the book, Vermont really might be most likely to secede.

Well, all of the free staters moved to Vermont. I wished they would of picked a state with a better climate.

They aren't allowed to vote for a representative? That seems strange.
