    has a Secession initiative on the ballot for 10 of their red counties to leave and become "Northern Colorado" or something, completely ignoring the fact that the State government would have to approve this AND the US Congress is the entity with final authority about dividing states.

    I didn't even bother to list that piece of Tea Bag Trash.

        •  I read soommat year sago about how the one thing (0+ / 0-)

          forbidden in Colorado Springs is to raise taxes. So people are asked to take their own garbage out of parks, and who knows what other services any decent-sized city provides aren't available in COS. I'm sure they have lots and lots and lots of guns, however. Too bad; I sorta wanted to live there one of these days.

      The really amusing theoretical scenario would be if Colorado let them leave, but the United States refused to let them in.

        Congress could do a deal to admit Northern Colorado (safe Republican 2 Senators and a House member) and at the same time Washington DC as the state of New Columbia (2 safe Democratic Senators and a Representative). Then you could confuse the world with three states with the initials NC.

        There would also need to be a constitutional amendment, to eliminate the grant of three non state electoral votes to the federal district, but that should be easily achieved in the context of the two new state admission deal.
