The 51st State - North Colorado gaining some big traction

A proposal backed by several Colorado counties to form a new state called North Colorado is getting public support.
More than four dozen people showed up Thursday at the first public meeting to discuss a proposal to form a 51st state. Nearly all of them said they support secession.
The Greeley Tribune reports people from Weld, Morgan, Logan, Sedgwick, Phillips, Washington, Yuma and Kit Carson counties are included in the discussion.

Maybe Magpul will come back to the area with their jobs

People lost jobs over the legislation in Colorado forcing companies like Magpul to leave the state.

More power to them for wanting to make a new state. The politiciions ignored the people and did what Biden wispered in their ear to do when he called them all personally on his "ski trip" to Colorado.

People have forgotten the most important lesson....

The Declaration of Independence was "secession" from England.

Maybe we should follow this tried and true formula to freedom.

...But Obama said he'd campaigned in all 57 states

What a gaffe that was...

Secession is Back

Just don't

include Denver, Boulder or Larimer County in this new state. Too many yankees and rule makers. Seriously the difference in Weld County and Larimer is like nite and day. Larimer usually has a bug up its ass (even tho I like Fort Collins, or try too), Boulder, I don't even want to talk about it and the other counties mentioned are more live and let live. And if you move there... you live by THEIR guidelines. If you build a new house next to a stable or feed lot... live with it and leave your "high hats" in CA.

God forgives always. Man forgives sometimes. But Nature never forgives.

haha, Boulder

New States may be admitted by the Congress into this Union; but no new State shall be formed or erected within the Jurisdiction of any other State; nor any State be formed by the Junction of two or more States, or Parts of States, without the Consent of the Legislatures of the States concerned was well as of the Congress.

Lincoln didn't care.

West Virgina didn't even have the Consent of the Legislatures of the States concerned was well as of the Congress.

State of Jefferson 52


If this keeps up Obama will be right about 57 states.

If I'm hopeful for anything in California's locale...

It is definitely the emergence of the State of Jefferson.

I first learned of "The State of Jefferson" from a college professor, and it's been a brush fire in my mind ever since.

Jefferson needs to secede from the Union.

We are not landlocked. Why do we want to be just another federalist state. Let's be free and independent. The Nation of Jefferson. XX
