Will they call their new state Dumbfarkistan or will everyone else?

New States may be admitted by the Congress into this Union; but no new States shall be formed or erected within the Jurisdiction of any other State; nor any State be formed by the Junction of two or more States, or parts of States, without the Consent of the Legislatures of the States concerned as well as of the Congress -Article IV, Section III, Clause I, United States Constitution

Good luck getting the Colorado legislature AND Congress on board with that...

Heh, yeah, everyone not in the Denver/Boulder/DC corridor is feeling that way.

So their solution is to be not only ignored by Washington, but mocked as well? Makes sense.

I'm moving from Dallas to Boulder (well, Longmont) in about six weeks, and I was out there house hunting this weekend. It would appear that I'm making more of a lateral move than I previously thought.

It's actually pretty easy not to come into contact with much of the derp here unless you try, though. I should preface that with, unless you live in Colorado Springs or a truly rural town, I suppose. I don't live in Denver or Boulder proper and I manage to avoid about 99% of the truly stupid tea party shiat. They don't have that much traction here; Colorado for the most part is kind of chill and pragmatic and doesn't like nosy, noisy spazzes like the tea partiers.

I knew this would be the story when I saw Weld County.

Some children accept that grown-ups are in charge now.  Weld County pulls it's pants down and starts playing with itself.

I suggest they move to Wyoming, cuz we gots some queers al ready to move to Weld County next.

What are the big issues they're upset about?

From the article it mentions fracking/drilling as well as renewable energy requirements, but it also says the governor is for more drilling and fracking as well as for more renewable energy, are the rural Coloradans against fracking/drilling and against renewable energy?  Where do they propose they get their power?

The big one that they made noise about that I heard was electricity prices associated with changes in energy policy.  Things that didn't impact city folk all that much but got amplified as they went further out into the South Wyoming / West Kansas areas.

The renewable energy requirements mean everyone's electric bills will be going up significantly. The recent gun control enacted is also very unpopular.

Colorado Democrats gained full control of the state in 2012. They have governed with a certain arrogance and have been substantially further left than I think many people expected and possibly wanted. They are experiencing a backlash because of it.

Please tell me the flags went up After your friends had already moved in. I've lived in Colorado most of my life in many different areas around Denver and its suburbs and I've never lived in a neighborhood with one of those flags a-flying, let alone 2.

Weld is a rich county from agriculture. I'm sure the legislature being Democratic hasn't stopped Weld from buying legislators to support their infrastructure projects - I'm sure they get back what they pay to the state coffers and get help with federal money or else they would be screaming about that.

Maybe they're upset that they can't buy legislators for all their pet issues.

The funny thing is, they have only themselves and the conservatives they put into power in the first place to blame. The reason the Dems have both the state senate and legislature is because of how the Republicans were running things before. The voters got fed up and voted in the Dems and the Dems have been doing pretty much what they said they would so far (gun control was an add on admittedly after the Sandy Hook shootings).

I've never seen one except on a bumper sticker or on a camper before. This is the first time I've ever seen them flown from a house.  But no, before.  My friends were not going to move out of that area, and were only talked out of Highlands Ranch by a whisker.  The husband has decided he is going to become a walking stereotype of a white suburban dad, BUT at least he got a chuckle at the irony.

But if they want more fracking and fewer environmental restrictions, won't they end up poisoning you and your friends? Sometimes you need to stop people from doing what they want.

The area is over a huge gas field, so they're as pro-fracking as it can get. The kerfuffle over fracking has been local governments (e.g. the city of Longmont, which is just on the margins of this field) instituting local bans on fracking, when regulating drilling falls squarely under state purview. Hickenlooper has been left with the unpopular (in his party) position of suing these municipal governments to remove their bans, which has just pushed the debate into ballot issues. There's going to be a ton of them this November.

None of this is happening in these counties, and why this should make these counties upset with their state level representation is mystifying.

I think really they're just pissed about the gun bill and the gas thing makes them feel even more culturally divorced from the libby parts of the state.
