North Colorado Discussing Possible Creation of Own State



LINK

quote:

The secession movement stems from "a growing urban-rural divide," with state lawmakers in Denver passing sweeping gun control legislation and calling for more renewable energy and less oil and gas production—a big part of northern Colorado's economy.

“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,” Weld County Commissioner Sean Conway told Coloradoan.com.

“This is not a stunt. This is a very serious deliberative discussion that’s going on,” Conway told CBS Denver. “There’s a real feeling that a lot of folks who come from the urban areas don’t appreciate the contribution that many Coloradans contribute.”

Eastern Washington has said that it wants to do the same thing for years. Still hasn't happened.

Nothing new for CO. The liberal pockets of the state control the politics. They passed a bill to make every power plant in the state natural gas though.

Glad I just live there now and no longer work there. Natural gas industry there is always in flux.

May want to take LA with the secession. A lot of pipe laid across the state.

This reflective of what is going on in our country.

Big city liberals get to determine elections at this point.

If your a liberal, I'm sorry...for you!

Urbanites are a different breed. People in rural areas couldn't care less about how people in other areas live their lives...urbanites think if everyone doesn't live like them, they are backward and take it as a cue to force their belief system and lifestyle on them.
