Rural Colorado counties propose 51st state: North Colorado
County commissioners from rural Northeastern Colorado are pursuing a plan to splinter from the state and create a new one following a legislative session they say ignored the values that form the fabric of the region.

Such a drastic step has not been taken since the nation was at war with itself 150 years ago.

“Our vision and our morals are no longer represented by the state (Legislature) and the current (governor’s) administration, and we think it’s time that we do take seriously what our options are,” said Weld County Commissioner Douglas Rademacher. “This is just one of our options, but we will be moving forward with it.”

Colorado’s Democratically controlled Legislature this year passed laws to tighten gun control, increase reliance on renewable energy in rural areas and curb perceived cruel treatment of livestock. It mulled expanded regulation of oil and gas production, but those plans were narrowly defeated.

Talks of the split between citizens and local leaders in the predominantly Republican Eastern Plains began as the Legislature debated those issues, according to Weld County Commissioner Sean Conway.

“Northern and Northeastern Colorado and our voices are being ignored in the legislative process this year, and our very way of life is under attack,” he said.

At a gathering of county commissioners from throughout the state this week, a member of the House Democrats’ leadership team vowed to bring back proposals for stricter environmental standards for the oil and gas industry. That elevated the conversation about an Eastern Plains split from Colorado, Conway said.

In the weeks ahead, commissioners in Weld County and others are poised to hold hearings about the proposed break with an eye on referring ballot questions in the individual counties by Aug. 1 for the November election.

If voters adopted such a measure, it would ask the Legislature to petition Congress for creation of a new state. The General Assembly and the governor would need to approve the request.

House Speaker Mark Ferrandino, D-Denver, said it would be premature to say whether such a plan would stand a chance in the Legislature.

Naw. It's not premature. It won't stand a chance in the legislature. They're the tyrants that passed the Orwellian laws in the first place. Dumb people.

Fuck all the libtards. They think they can force anything they want on us. When the shooting starts they'll all want to hide behind the gestapo. Problem is all the gestapo combined can only put about one and a half armed agents per square mile.

I'd like to see 200 cowardly crying libtards hide behind one and a half agents.

Re: Rural Colorado counties propose 51st state: North Colorado
The state of Colorado is a sick running joke. Backward and asinine. The only good thing the state has going for it is the legal pot, and even that only helps staying sane to a point.
Other than the legal weed the state bites. All and I mean ALL
of the forests are dead from a combo of bark beetle infestation and tent caterpillar infestation. No water anywhere, no moisture, dust storms, no rain, starving livestock, agriculture is drying up as well.
The people, well... not much going on upstairs with the people who act like cheerleaders for this dust bowl.
Ptah! This state is cursed.

Yup. Bark beetles killing all the pine trees and tent caterpillars killing all the aspens and other trees, bushes, and grass. No rain, no moisture.
Crime skyrocketing as the drug dealers are moving to other markets *opiate pain killers mostly, 80 dollars for one pill* as Marijuana prohibition has been lifted.
No jobs, nada. A cursed place.

NW is the place to go ;)
