Colorado To Secede? Rural Counties Want To Form New State

colorado flag

A few rural communities in North Colorado want to secede and become their own state.

According to the Coloradan, a group of county commissioners are pursuing a plan to secede from Colorado over concerns that their voices are being ignored by the state.

Sean Conway, a commissioner in Weld County, said: “I know you think, wow, this is crazy when you first hear about it, but then you realize that five of our states — Vermont, Maine, Tennessee, Wyoming and Kentucky — came about in this fashion, and the circumstances were very similar to what we’re going through now.”

Conway said that commissioners from other counties have been having informal talks about seceding from the state and added that a measure may be placed on the November ballot in Weld County to find out if voters agree with the plan.

Conway, a Republican, said that recent legislation passed by Colorado has threatened his communities way of life. According to KDVR, the commissioner is referring to new laws on gun control and the expansion of oil and gas production. The straw that broke the camel’s back, however, came this week when Gov. John Hickenlooper signed S.B. 252, a bill that would increase “renewable energy standard for rural electric co-ops.

Conway said: “I have never seen a legislative session like this. They ignore us. They don’t listen to us. It started with the gun control bills and came to a head this week with S.B. 252 being signed … Our voices are being ignored in the legislative process this year and our very way of life is under attack.”

Conway said that commissioners from rural counties would hold hearings over the next few weeks with the hopes of bringing a vote to the community in November. It’s unclear what counties want to secede from Colorado but Conway said that Logan, Morgan, Phillips, Sedgwick, Washington, and Yuma counties have all been involved in the first round of talks.

Conway said: “We’re not excluding anybody. We don’t know how many counties this could be. There’s been discussions that this could include the entire Eastern Plains of Colorado eventually.”

Here’s a video of Weld Commissioner Doug Rademacher talking about issue.

The northern part of Colorado may be getting some support in their attempt to secede but House Speaker Mark Ferrandino believes that the idea is ill-conceived.

Ferrandino said: “This is one of those cases where you don’t get what you want, so there’s no compromise … It’s my way or the highway — that’s what we’re hearing from Commissioner Conway. They don’t like the direction things are going, even though the voters spoke in November.”

    WOw, this sounds eerily similar to what most blue supporters feel like in places like Texas and the Carolinas… but they don't talk secession, which is currently considered treason by a federal employee. Funny how the republicans cry the loudest when they don't get their way, and even funnier how loud they scream when legislation that is good for the people but not so good for their leash holders in big business is passed into law.

  2. Lee Gary

    It's happening all over America. Not just in Colorado. obama has divided this country by every way imaginable. Perhaps beyond repair.

    seceding from Colorado… not the US READ people READ.

  4. Kenneth Dandurand

    Take the Springs with you. The morons in the Denver Metro area have made the name Colorado a joke all over the country. Actually lets just kick Pueblo and Metro Denver out of the state……..

  5. Kerry Woods

    stupid. they're talking about seceding from the STATE of CO, not from the federal gov't, they want to make their little enclave into another state, not another country. you can eliminate the federal gov't and what would you have left? only state gov't's, which would then be the only gov't entity, and could(probably would) become as intrusive, overbearing and dictatorial as you think the fed gov't is now. there is no guarantee that any states, given freedom from federal influence, would be any more free, democratic or trustworthy than the federal gov't.

  6. Ed Tyler

    Is hope that isn't the Colorado state flag. It looks like the Target logo.

    get a grip on this. all voices are ignored by gov unless your rich and/or powerful.

    What a bunch of wimps those republicans have turned into.

  9. Lee Gary

    Sure they talk it. When Bush was president states like Vermont and Main passed symbolic secession bills. Plus America was not nearly as divided then as it is today. BTW, u should look up the relationship to obama's "big business" campaign donors regarding the special considerations and no bid contracts they now get. If a poor ol country boy like myself with barely a grade school education can ferret out such information then surely a learned person such as yourself can do even better.

  10. David Laven

    I know that most northern Californians want to form their own state.

  11. Phil Murphy

    The country was just as divided as when Bush was in office. The refrain? If you don't like it, leave. I do give the GOP props for their take… "We don't like it, so we're thinking of leaving." By all means, go for it. One caveat… If you receive more federal dollars than you give in taxes, you should become a ward of the federal government. We're talking dollars and cents here, actual money.

  12. Brian Griffin

    They have a point though. The "voters" may have voted but the majority of those voters are in the metro areas and what they vote for is not what the northern counties need, want, or possibly even sustain. Many of the new blue voters in Colorado seemed to have moved here because of better opportunities then California for instance. And they've moved with the same values and goals that have doomed that state. Can Hickenlooper find those towns and counties on a map or drive himself there without GPS?

  13. T.l. Toadvine

    So they don't like the laws being passed in their state, it's called "Democracy" now they want to secede from Colorado, yes sir buddy…while you're doing the paperwork, how about giving all that land back to the Native Americans, or are you going to ignore them the way Colorado is ignoring you?

  14. Chris Lopez

    Please..Democrat Liberals hold the crown for crying the loudest (especially when they dont get their way) hands down..Bully the boyscouts lately? lol

  15. Michael Hobart

    The governor and legislature for Colorado (the entire state) would have to approve it, then both the House and the Senate would have to approve it. This would affect the balance of power in the Senate and thus in the Electoral College, so it is not a simple thing to get done. Do we really want to balkanize the United States, where every small group of counties gets its own state? How about Northern California and Southern California, or Northern Michigan and Southern Michigan, or Northern Florida vs the Miami-Dade area, and so forth and so on. States have been split from others as noted, but the article also points out that it has been a LONG time since this was done, and that was in the middle of the Civil War, when the largely non-slaveholding parts of Virginia seceded from it. That was hardly a normal political situation and dispute. It sounds much like a little kid demanding that a ball game be played only by their rules or they are going to take the equipment and go home angry.

  16. David Malchow

    Just what makes them think that we would accept them as our 51st State?

  17. Lee Gary

    The country was divided by red and blue. Not so much by race, wealth, religion, immigration, gun ownership, family member against family member, et al as it is now. Now it's at the point people truly hate each other. Now what your comment of "federal dollars" has to do with anything escapes me.

  18. Michael Hobart

    Right, just look at early U.S. history, we tried the Articles of Confederation and it just didn't work. Those who are so revered by the right (and the rest of us) as the Founding Fathers, took our first attempt at a national government and tossed it out with the trash.

  19. Michael Hobart

    Most states that voted for Romney in the last election and for McCain in the election before that are "takers" – they get more money from the Federal government than they contribute in taxes. There are some exceptions, such as Texas, which makes large contributions because of it's oil revenue thus oil taxes. Odd how Romney never talked about that aspect of things :-) LOL

  20. Paul Derengowski

    Having lived in Colorado, way back when, and in Washington County, no less, I can say that today's Colorado isn't anything like it used to be. It has swung so far to the left, politically, that I pity many of my friends who still live there. So, kudos to those who have had enough of the socialist/fascist bullying by the Governor and his henchmen, and want to do something about it. It's unfortunate that is is coming down to this, as it is all across America, but what else could one expect, given that the socialists and fascists keep bullying everyone with their oppressive agendas? Is everyone just supposed to roll over and let Mother Russia take care of them from cradle to grave?

    Why is it that the people always trying to "secede" are always the republicans? lol is it just me or are the red becoming a bunch of cry babies now days?

  23. Glenn Hopkins

    This refusal to consult with the people, passing legislation contrary to their best interest, is the reason why they wanted gun control first-so the people could not protest this conduct. Succession might work, if they can unify themselves enough though the national guard might get called in to pacify the area.

  24. Chris Johnson

    hey edwin i hate to tell ya but there's not that many "lib homo dems" from cali moving to colorado. where's your evidence of this?? and what exactly is east california?? are you even from cali?? my guess is probably not.

  25. Fred Slater

    California should do this.
    California has become too populous compared to other States.
    A winner take all election disenfranchises a total number of voters larger then most States.

    First of all Chris, Edwin is referring to Colorado as East Calif. And I agree! Oh yes….I am from Calif., and I know of quite a few people from here that have moved to Colorado. Most of them have either gone to the Denver area, or Colorado Springs.I visit Colorado Springs three or four times a year, and really is amazing when talking to the locals, just how many are from Calif., So. Cal., to be exact! So my guess is that you probably have nothing to do with Colorado at all, but just spewing crap to listen to your self…..

    I once was a Democrat and my voice was ignored. I changed to Republican and my voice was still ignored. I am now an Independent, and here I am again, my voice being ignored. What is the problem? I am not rich or famous so I guess I do not have a lot of clout, or I am just an ignorable type of person. I would like to ask the government if my 183 acres of land can become a state of its own. It is bound to get a lot attention then, and maybe, my voice will be heard.

  34. Alexander James

    Republicans always want to leave when they don't get their way, this is why they cannot win elections anymore.

  35. Al Bacon

    Interesting in that the reason for forming cities and states and eventually a national government was for mutual protection but now those governing units have become what so many need protection from. In the state of Michigan, the upper peninsula is paying taxes to the state which help support the city of Detroit which probably will declare bankruptcy anyhow and they also talked about forming a new state at one point. We established government to represent us but when the point comes that they do not, we need to establish a different government whether on a state level or perhaps the day will yet come when we become several state-countries making up a system of United Republics. We do not really need a strong central government in many areas but that strong central government needs to have people to govern and needs to have common sense to rule wisely and they do not have that at present.

  36. Michael Madej

    James… Why do you even care if they want to secede? They don't want to be a part of a corrupt big government state and nation. Who are you to say they are wrong for doing what they want to do? You don't even live there? So who the hell are you?

    We need something like this in California! The Socialist Democrats have turned this state into a left wing commie state with high taxes and big brother telling you what you can and can't do.

As a dedicated liberal living in a upper-middle class primarily Republican town I'm normally on the losing side of the vote. However, that does not mean I'm going to cry about "my voice no being heard". These people are just being sore losers. And I see a couple people on here commenting multiple times "Obama is dividing America" SHUT UP. This country is divided on ethnic, economic, and cultural lines…WAY before Obama. And we still make it work. Truth is, in peoples sub-conscious minds they don't like Obama because he's black, and they think the economy being bad is his fault. The former being true, the latter being false…read an economic history book (then you shall be enlightened.

    Sooooo…let me get this straight…..even if the counties get their voter's approval…they then have to get the CO State Legislature to approve it….the same Legislature that doesn't represent their interests currently…and then the U.S. Congress would have to approve the 51st State…yes..that's all going to fall in line nicely..the very same Congress that can't balance a budget or guard our borders or anything else of importance..but yes…that Congress will absolutely approve a 51st State.

    Chris Johnson .. The only reason libs aren't is because for many of them Obama is their meal ticket. That includes illegals, welfare spawners, military contractors, unions, Israel, et al. Feinstein even got caught trying to award her husband lucrative defense contracts when she chaired the Senate Military Construction Appropriations Subcommittee in 2007 (On Capital Hill). Of course the media covered that up and she was reelected. Of course her being Jewish and 96% of the media is owned by Jewish companies (After Media Int'l, et al.) didn't hurt her. All are milking this country dry while Obama's ship of fools (constituency) either choose to ignore the facts or aren't smart enough to understand what's going on around them.see that.

    Chris, there's a difference in crying and being pissed off. I've had over 24K of taxes taken from me this year and we're barely into the 6th month of the year. Colorado makes up about 4k of that. That's ridiculous mainly because we continue to hear about stuff like the IRS scandal which includes them wasting over 4 million dollars on ONE bullshit conference for its employees. I've noticed your posts and see that you seem to just want to talk shit, but I'm letting you know where I'm coming from. I could give 2 fucks about Colorado passing the marijuana thing, but when they're digging more and more into my wallet, you're damn right I'm gonna get pissed.

    @ Lee Gary 'When Bush was President America was not NEARLY as divided as it is today?' Are you kidding? Try looking at the election results from Bush's to election wins and then look at Obama's and come back when you're ready to make an accurate statement. What IS true is that Congress was not nearly as obstructionist when Bush was President as it is today.

    Problem is that these "cry babies" are the taxpayers. They expect more say in policy and spending because they provide the funds. Were the taxpayers(those paying more than just a pittance in or no taxes) only allowed to vote, the country would be red.

  84. Jeffrey Lee

    I'm not from colorado so I don't know exactly what is going on, but I don't buy the whole "colorado is not listening to what we have to say" idea. remember when bush was elected and republicans were like "that's what the majority wants". I think its the same here. there are 64 counties in colorado. those listed aren't even half of that. this tells me that a bunch of cry babies didn't get what they want in a fair system and are throwing a tantrum now. I don't care how the other states were formed.

    succession is not the solution. we already have republicans and democrats dividing this country up hard cut. this succession makes things worse. I cant believe I'm saying this and don't like to, but that is un-american. we are all americans and we need to get along to some degree and try to understand each other. I'm not saying democrats are doing much better in that category, but when bush was in office I don't remember a lot of democrats saying "oh lets succeed". its not cause bush did a better job than obama, we all hated bush. but the whole "if you don't like it then leave" is a stupid idea. u want half of america to leave republicans? fine. see how much manpower u got left when u get invaded. no we democrats see that and are unwilling to let america go down. that's why we didn't leave.

    and here republicans don't get what they want and they want to leave? fine go for it, the democrats that remain in america will get invaded…then you will be next. its a mentally retarded idea to have disagreements blind people so much that they would take unfavorable decisions at the extreme end just for the instant gratification. you think democrats are childish? no, that is childish.

    im not saying that if there was no succession things wont get better. but take an instance of what we have now. the decision for succession will lead to instant gratification (not long term). because instant gratification is recorded by the media, those that agree with the movement will be appealed by it. they have yet to see the long term effects so they will follow suit. a body is split in half. half a body is a dead body. republicans more than democrats are more fearful that outside countries wants a piece of us. u should know what happens next. we both parish.

    by not succeeding, we can discussing things more and fight it out with these two differing ideals. basically either die and give up or fight till your last breath.

    If they board ships and leave the soil of North America and can find a new continent of their own then I say go for it, and by the way GOOD LUCK. No some are back woods/plains people and are backward thinking people. But to their credit they don't even know that, they believe they are good and doing good, no doubt even believe they are doing so called "gods work". They are spurred on by people who use their lack of knowledge and geographic isolation against them by befriending them and using them for their own needs. They may even think a new Indian uprising is coming if they are told that. They are simple believing people, but stupidity is not a excuse or a defense, even for the nicest of neighbors. You know it's easy to support reforms of decades ago now that they are clear to see for even those with the dimmest eyesight , but it takes courage to be progressive on todays reforms which will be considered obvious in the future. These people are sore losers that can't move forward.

    Robert Smith, you are a grade A idiot. You really think republicans are the only one's paying taxes? Typical repuke, throwing crap against the wall too see what sticks.

    Of course he's stupid, Aaron. Can't get into the Teabagger club unless you're stupid and you think you're the only smart one in America.

    And just how much Federal aide do these huge land owner farmers get?

    A lot of whiny teabaggers here. Hey baggers, the country took a vote and decided you're irrelevant. Personally, I'd love to see you all secede from the union. Then I'd love to see how long it takes you to come crying to FEMA the second a tornado wipes your United States Of Teabbagers Trailer Park.
