    But of course they can't do it without the permission of the legislature. And how likely are they to get that?

    Perhaps the left-winging supercities would be as glad to get rid of those pesky liberty-lovers in the rural environs as those wishing to leave would be to go.

    I like the idea but it won't fly. Colorado is run by the left right now and they depend upon these poor souls for tax revenue to fund their ludicrous ideology. Someone has to pay, after all.

    Why ask for permission when you can ask for forgiveness later?

    Mega-blocks. Mega-highways. Mega-City One.

    *ahem* sorry. I think it's a great idea. If the people of certain counties want to create a new state, what right does the state have to stop them? Do they belong to their overlords in Denver and Boulder? I say keep up the fight.
    "Yet this government never of itself furthered any enterprise, but by the alacrity with which it got out of the way... The character inherent in the American people has done all that has been accomplished; and it would have done somewhat more, if the government had not sometimes got in its way."

    This map would also be nice. Although a new idea for Colorado, this has been around for a while for pretty much the same reasons in the north part of CA and southern OR. Jefferson - The 51st State - Northern California / Southern Oregon - A State of Mind

    To me, it would be just fine.

    I don't know what processes are in place either under state constitutions or Congressional authority, but I do know
    that allowing the creation of several new rural only states would severely unbalance an already unbalanced situation in The Senate where rural states are more heavily represented than heavily populated states.

    Maybe if the "Splitters" were to get their way each of NYC's 5 boroughs could become a new state too--- and add 10
    liberal senators to The Senate? The Bronx with a population of 1.3 million deserves equal representation to S. Dakota.
    Each of the other boroughs would balance against places such as Montana and Idaho.

    Sometimes things shouldn't be messed with. This breakaway business is one of them.

    That rural imbalance of which you speak is the reason for the existence of the House of Representatives.

    Never happen, unless the DNC thinks it will get 2 more Dem Senators out of it.

    Huh? The House has proportional representation with each seat representing equal numbers of constituents. The rural-urban
    imbalance with the rural holding the upper hand occurs in The Senate. A handful of states with a combined population smaller than NYC controls 10% of the Senate. Another handful of states with a combined population less than California's also
    controls many senate seats.

    The House exists specifically to represent population. The Senate was designed to prevent population centers from completely controlling legislation. We are not a democracy and we were never intended to be one. Majority rule has no place in a free society. That's why we are a Constitutional Republic.
