It does not shock me that a rule-conservative area in Northern Colorado wants to become its own state. It does make me wonder where this could lead. The next thing you know we will have a thousand different states popping up when someone has a difference of opinion about state law.
If the conservatives use this as a way to take control of state law making, why not liberals? Maybe Austin Texas will become its own state and put windmills and solar panels on top of all its buildings. Wait, that would be really cool if they were not using the taxpayers’ money.
Ok, so maybe I’m over exaggerating things. I think it is great the people of Northern Colorado are taking matters into their own hands. We need people who stand up for what they believe.
This is what makes America so great. We all can stand up for what we believe without destroying the nation’s unity.
What are the chances it will happen?
Considering that five other states have been formed in a similar way then it is highly likely it could happen again. It will have to go through the state then lawmakers will have to potion D.C. to recognize the region and as a state.
Once Northern Colorado is past the vote it should be smooth sailing. The area’s main money flow is from oil and gas so it should pass the vote.
