Those counties do differ a lot from the bulk of the state, so I could see them having fundamental philosophical differences with the main population base.

I saw an article that said some counties in Nebraska and Kansas have expressed interest, too. This would be so cool. They also talked about petitioning to leave Colorado and join Wyoming, which would be less cool than a new state but still pretty fun.
No, I'm a flat lander who travels west on a somewhat regular basis to enjoy the mountains, kill shit, ski, & enjoy your strange. Eastern, particularly North Eastern, CO always just seemed so different from the areas that have been consumed by the migration. I guess you could say the same about the South West corner too, but it doesn't seem to be such a drastic difference like the NE corner does. It's similar to how the morons in Chicago inform the bottom 2/3 of Illinois how they are going to live when they have no ****ing clue how different it is.

It's funny you mentioned them joining Wyoming as that was my first thought. The people, ideas, beliefs, way of life... Everything would seem like a more natural fit. I could see a "new" square state with the corners of Colorado, Nebraska, & Kansas making a lot of sense too.

I highly doubt any of it happens but out of all the crazy ideas you hear about, this one actually makes a little sense.
