Sure, all the other states will be glad to give Colorado 2 more senators.

Hey maybe La can split into 64 states!


Not gonna happen.

I have some family living in SW CO and they were talking about this as if it might actually happen..

They also said they're waiting for Texas to secede so they can move there

The board seems especially stupid today.

Unionized soldiers
Walmart wages
Christian marriages
Egyptian-style coups in the US

WTF?

Two of those started by liberals and the other two is a news thread and a thread about a concept we haven't heard much of.

You will never see a thread like that not on the front page on this board any day of the week.

Nature of the beast. I just ignore it and don't click on the thread. There, problem solved for me.

don't see them getting around this

The creation of a new state comes with risks. A new state would have to draw up new water agreements which are critical to agriculture and uses 85 percent of Colorado’s water.


Yeah, this is a dealkiller right there. Northeast Colorado is a semidesert. They can't grow anything without irrigation water, which comes from somewhere else. And that somewhere else would not be inclined to provide water to a bunch of separatists that splintered off from the state of CO.

quote:

“I say 80 percent of the oil and gas revenue in the state of Colorado is coming out of northeastern Colorado – Weld, Yuma County, and some of other counties,” Weld County Commissioner Sean Conway said. “Seventy percent of the K-12 funding is coming off the state lands in Weld County alone. I’m telling you we are economic drivers.”


I'm calling bull shite there. No way 70% of the education money in CO is coming from one county. Sounds like he's pulling that figure out of his ass.

More ignunt rural legislators trying to talk tough. With demographic change, they don't run the state anymore. They don't like it, but they'll have to get used to it.

I feel for them. S.E. Ak has discussed breaking off a few times (long ago) for the same reason. It's a forgotten part of the State even though the capitol is here. Basically the very small but densely populated region of the state controls everything through their elected legislators.

It sucks.

I'm sure there are legitimate issues, but this isn't the way to go about addressing them.

They know it isn't going anywhere, just letting off steam. Like I said, I totally understand their frustration.
