Rural counties in northeastern Colorado want to start their own state (Weld County floats secession plan for northeastern Colorado):
The plan to carve off the northeastern corner of the state — Weld, Morgan, Logan, Sedgwick, Phillips, Washington, Yuma and Kit Carson counties — and form the state of North Colorado was hatched at a Colorado Counties Inc. conference earlier this week, Weld County spokeswoman Jennifer Finch said.
Additionally, Craig Colorado wants to require everyone to carry “sporting rifles capable of accepting high-capacity magazines”(New committee meets to discuss mandatory gun ownership in Craig).
I have a few things to say to these folks.
Craig – Many of you are against mandatory health care that your Republican Party originally proposed and implemented in Massachusetts but apparently some of you are in favor of mandatory gun carry? Do you see any issues here? Is it better to require the capacity to kill than to heal?
Let me tell you folks something: I hated it when your party was in power, started two dumb wars and crashed the economy AND you had the gall to make me pay taxes to support your absurd policies. However, it never even occurred to me to advocate seceding from the state which is effectively seceding from the Union (some in Texas want to do this too). First, even if you can secede from the state you will no longer be a part of the United States. We have a constitution that requires your dreaded Federal Government admit you to the Union – Article 4 of the Constitution. You must have someone that went to law school that can help you with that – right? Why is it that you consider yourselves patriots but you hate the government and you want to secede? When I was in churches in the Deep South it seemed like every church thought they were the true Christians and everyone else was apostate. Well, you know democracy is a different beast than that. In democracy we have this idea about the majority and voting. It was a very liberal idea when our country began but it does go back to the early Greeks. If you are not on board with that idea and would like the minority to keep sabotaging the democratic process, you are only on board with democracy when it works for you – that idea is not called democracy, it is called tyranny when implemented in a government. You can call yourselves patriots or anything you want but if you cannot support democratic government, even when it goes against you, you are patriots of tyranny. With that in mind it may be better if you got the hell out of the Union – America, love it or leave it!
