North Colorado Could Become America’s 51st State

Representatives from several northern Colorado counties are pushing to secede from the state.

According to Yahoo! News,

The secession movement stems from “a growing urban-rural divide,” with state lawmakers in Denver passing sweeping gun control legislation and calling for more renewable energy and less oil and gas production—a big part of northern Colorado’s economy.

Officials from Weld, Morgan, Logan, Sedgwick, Phillips, Washington, Yuma and Kit Carson counties were involved in the discussions, Conway said, adding that two counties in Nebraska are interested in joining the new state.

There have been plenty of state partition proposals in the past, but the last time it was successful was in 1863 when West Virginia successfully seceded from Virginia.

Deminski and Doyle want to know if you think North Jersey and South Jersey are culturally different enough to pull off becoming separate states.
