You bastard's in colorado voted demoKKKrat, and helped push Obastard and his agenda and now you pussies want to bail!?!?

I don't think so!

If this country is going to crash and burn, those who helped instigate it should go down with the rest of us.

You liberal sewer rats were bitching up a storm when republican states were proposing this a while back.

You demoKKKrats swallowed all Obama Bin Lying's BS, now deal with the aftertaste.

Not a chance.So if this happens the Republicans get two more U.S.Senators.So what?Then the democrats will want MD. to divide so they can get two more democrat senators.Then S.C. does the same and CA. does the same and on and on it goes.Pretty soon the U.S.A. will have a hundred states.

The sane people in CO voted this down last Tuesday.

@Who, there's a huge difference between the Front Range and the Western Slope of CO, in population, finances & politics.

Colorado,like Arizona has been flooded with econom ic refugees from California over the past decade. It was THOSE ex-Californians who changed the demographic there. The native Coloradans were swamped by libs fleeing a broken California and voted to change where they moved TOO into what they left and the native Coloradans only recourse is to break away if possible. Much like people in Southern Illinois want to break away from the democratic Chicago influenced/dominated Northern Illinois.

Exactly.
The new gun laws they crammed down our throats resulted in 2 successful recall elections, and a coalition of 54 County Sheriffs suing the State
It's Denver/Boulder vs the rest of the state.

Bravo! Los Angeles is now rated 3rd world living conditions by the U.N. It's now briming with lazy Mexicans who have turned it into a hell hole like the one they escaped from except here every need is provided free of charge and soon they will be legally voting for more free.

i'm going home. so because you don't get your way you want a new state. get the fuck out of here. i want a million dollars, no mortgage, and everything for free. that's right wingers for you. obviously America is sick of right wingers and there "let's support the rich" mentality, this libs are taking over. maybe instead of succeeding, they should move to another state that fits their beliefs better. Or better yet, maybe we should just off them for treason?

The last time a new state was created from another was during the civil war- West Virginia.

If we're creating new states, then I propose making Detroit their own state and freeing the rest of us from having to support their stupidity.

I wish we could just get the red states to pay their own way. In the past people in the blue states did not mind having to support the red states, but we sure wish they would stop complaining while they accept the handouts.

Michigan is a prime example. For every dollar they pay in federal taxes they receive $1.69 per capita in federal funding. Colorado on the other hand receives $0.91 for every dollar they pay in federal taxes.

Don't forget to thank the "demoKKKrat liberal sewer rats" in Colorado when they have to pay the bills you can not afford to pay yourself.

One of the reasons they want to secede is due to Co. Gov. Hickenlooper trying to go along with Obama`s gun control laws. It is also the reason 2 Dem Rep`s were recalled a couple months ago.

Why can't a section of a state be free and seperate itself from the free loaders and welfare bums of the inner cities? A new West Colorado with no welfare lines should thrive. Detroit is proof that too many freeloaders and crooked (D)emocRATS and crooked (D)emocRAT policies completely kill off all hope for life, liberty and pursuit of happiness.
Except for the fact that the cities support the rural parts of the state.
