Will North Colorado Be The 51st State In The Union?

by Michael Snyder, Economic Collapse Blog:

There are ten counties in northern Colorado that are discussing plans to secede from the state of Colorado in order to form a new state that would be known as “North Colorado”.  North Colorado would have a population of more than 300,000 people, and it would be the 42nd largest state in the country by land area.  The county officials that are leading this movement say that a “collective mass” of issues has resulted in this desire to leave the state of Colorado for good. 

In recent years, the Democratically-controlled state legislature has been pursuing new regulations on the oil and gas industries, it has imposed strict new renewable energy standards throughout the state and it has adopted new gun control measures that are highly unpopular with rural voters.  The desire to be independent of the meddling bureaucrats in the state capital is certainly a commendable goal, but there are some obstacles that will make establishing a new state very difficult.  Hopefully the challenges will not cause those pursuing this new state to lose heart.

    This is just more talk that will never happen.

    Won’t happen. It will be better to cut Denver and Boulder out of the state and call it Eastern California.

    People are better off when their government is more local and votes count the most by the citizens. People are best off when they are governed by themselves.

    While the US supreme court will strike down the constitutionality of any state trying to break off either from another state or the U.S. in general, it really doesn’t matter.

    What matters is that this has gotten this far. That people are seriously thinking about breaking off, that many states are talking secession. When the economy collapses they will break off. The feds will become irrelevent and many state governments will become irrelevent as they have no money to pass out and nothing but demands for tax dollars to keep going.

    Southern missouri will probably not announce anything but I do not think it will remain loyal to the northern part of the state where most of the people live. I don’t see why we should pay for the big cities of kansas city & St. Louis in a collapse situation. They already take most of the benefits & money for better roads and schools.
