...and be a part of the proposed new state, and two in Kansas.
Denver and the surrounding area is so statist, and the more rural counties more freedom-loving. Why should they be forced to stay together and be ruled by ex-Califorians who are ruining Colorado the same way they ruined the state they fled?
This is an important story for me for a couple of reasons. It embodies two of the seven pillars of Localism ( http://www.amazon.com/Localism-A-Philosophy-Government-ebook...)in one story. Immigrants from other states have come to overwhelm the locals, now the locals want to break away. Immigration and the right to re-associate (without the need for approval from Congress or the people who you wish to dis-associate from) at the county level are two of the pillars.
Localism is for people who can still sleep at night even though somebody they don't know in a city they have never been is doing things differently. ("Localism, A Philosophy of Government" on Amazon for Kindle or Barnes and Noble ebook websites)
