Rural Coloradans Vote to Secede from Colorado as 51st State

Posted on August 23, 2013

Commissioners in Weld County, Colorado unanimously voted on Monday to make ‘North Colorado’ the 51st US state. The Republican board hopes to secede from the state in protest of laws passed by the Democratically controlled state legislature this year. The initiative will be added to the ballot this November. More than 11,000 people have liked the 51st State Initiative’s Facebook page.

The 51st State initiative has a website and appeals to the Declaration of Independence as justification for its efforts, writing:

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

The 51st State website claims that their initiative is simple. “We just want to be left alone to live our lives without heavy-handed restrictions from the state capitol,” read a post on the website.

“The concerns of rural Coloradans have been ignored for years,” William Garcia, chairman of the Weld County Commissioners, said in a statement. “The last session was the straw that broke the camel’s back for many people. They want change. They want to be heard.”

I don't blame them.
Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote.

Northern Michigan wanted to do the same back in the early 90's.
Basically because corrupt Detroit was "Michigan" when it came to taxes/finances, voting, etc.

Didn't happen then, won't happen with Colorado.
Maybe control the influx of fleeing Californians would help......
