Colorado and North Colorado?

Colorado MountainsDon’t think it’s unthinkable.

Rural Coloradans — about 10 counties — are looking at creating a 51st state.

The US Constitution allows secession via a petition to Congress, carving a new state boundary.  It is Congress — not the president — that would have to approve another state.

About 85% of oil and gas production is in this area.

There would then be two more US Senators.  And at least one new US Representative.

Rural Coloradans are completely and overwhelmingly disappointed with the so-called “representation” afforded them at this point.  They are frustrated, angry, and on the cusp of actual action.

Who would argue against?  Many and most.  Mostly Demorats.  Urban metropolitan areas vs agrarian and rural venues.

North Colorado thinks it would yield about 350,000 to 400,000 occupants.  But what would the money part be?

This: no debt.  It would be perhaps an excellent business model to follow.  They forecast an assessed value of roughly $10 billion dollars.


Rural Coloradans to vote on breaking away as 51st state, angered by liberal policies on guns, energy

By Valerie Richardson

DENVER — You’ve got North Carolina and North Dakota, so why not Northern Colorado?

Voters in several rural Colorado counties will be asked whether they want to form a new state tentatively named Northern Colorado in the November election, a reaction to the Democrat-controlled state legislature’s “war on rural Colorado.”

The Weld County Commissioners voted unanimously at Monday’s meeting to place a measure on the Nov. 5 ballot asking voters whether they want the county to join other rural counties in forming another state.

“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.”

A common thought and complaint tacitly and overtly ignored by the Demorats in power currently.  It is no surprise that Fornicalia has a Supermajority of Demorats in the state which means that Conservatives have no voice whatsoever in Sacramento.

Given the complexities involved with creating a state, Mr. Hare said, the Northern Colorado movement is considering two other options: asking Wyoming to annex Colorado’s northern counties or requesting that the state legislature redraw its Senate districts to give a senator to each of the state’s 64 counties, analogous to how the U.S. apportions seats by state, regardless of their populations.

Colorado now has 35 senators in districts drawn by population, giving the state’s urban areas far greater sway in the state legislature.

This major thought:

Can you imagine the precedent set should this move towards fruition in any fashion?  Can you imagine the collective sphincters clenching in DC and various other Leftist bunkers when it may be discovered that agrarian or more rural areas may have a hand in determining their own futures?  And the disparities that would result?

Disparities, you ask?  Yes indeed.  True Conservative states would tend to have the greatest amounts of minerals and resources available to them.  They would also begin to build and rebuild, absent onerous regulations and restrictions, infrastructure to include refineries and electrical generation stations.

This would in turn lead to greater independence from DC.  And that is something those in DC, on both sides of the aisle, cannot countenance.




“Free at last, free at last, thank God almighty we are free at last.”

And with that comes new Republican Elbert Guillory.

Elbert Guillory: “Why I Am a Republican”

Because he realizes the history inherent in the Republican party.

Not now.  But then.

And I ask:

Which party is the party of corruption, of slavery, of Free Cheese, of catering to the worst of human interests?

Yes.  The Demorat Party.

Let us allow Martin Luther King to speechify us all:

The truth hurts.  [And who was the white officer who protected MLK during that speech?]

And the truth is that the Republican Party was the party of freedom, of independence, of goodness, of moral certainty, of the rights of individuals.






Jindal's Stupid PartyFrom Ann Coulter’s column:

Democrats terrify Hispanics into thinking they’ll be lynched if they vote for Republicans, and then turn around and taunt Republicans for not winning a majority of the Hispanic vote. This line of attack has real resonance with our stupidest Republicans. (Proposed Republican primary targets: Sens. Kelly Ayotte, Jeff Flake, Lindsey Graham and Marco Rubio.) Which explains why Republicans are devoting all their energy to slightly increasing their share of the Hispanic vote while alienating everyone else in America.

It must be fun for liberals to manipulate Republicans into focusing on hopeless causes. Why don’t Democrats waste their time trying to win the votes of gun owners?

As journalist Steve Sailer recently pointed out, the Hispanic vote terrifying Republicans isn’t that big. It actually declined in 2012. The Census Bureau finally released the real voter turnout numbers from the last election, and the Hispanic vote came in at only 8.4 percent of the electorate — not the 10 percent claimed by the pro-amnesty crowd.

It puzzled me years ago and it puzzles me now; why is it Republicans believe that in order to win votes they must abandon their Conservative principles, cede power and then refuse to wield said power when they find themselves in the majority of Congress?

Has Ann Coulter nailed the issue?
