[quote:Anonymous Coward 41374065:MV8yMjU3MzA0XzM4MzU5OTI1X0QxNEFFNDgz] This is nothing new. There was talk of northern Wisconsin and the UP of Michigan breaking off and forming a new state called Superior in the 70's. Also, I've heard of similar talk in other states, including California [/quote]
It’s an uphill climb that looks Rocky Mountain high, but a collection of independent-thinking counties may mount an effort to secede from the rest of Colorado and form their own new state.
The idea is rooted in the political rift that many Coloradans – especially rural ones – feel with a Denver-based state legislature that has taken a liberal turn in recent years.
A new state, if it formed, might be called North Colorado.
Would that mean that the rest of the current state would need to become South Colorado? How would the US flag look with 51 stars? Would this give similar ideas to politically restive sections of other states?
It may be too early to ask such questions. The road to forming a new state is a difficult one.
