I think the OP means counties seceding to form a new state, not states forming a different country. I could be wrong.

Yet you never see a secessionist movement by those who live in these disenfranchised urban centers. The Colorado movement was typical Tea Party BS - I'm not getting my way so I want to make my marbles and go somewhere else.

Maryland's Eastern Shore also wants to leave.

Staten Island in the past 20 years has wanted to secede from New York City. Also, some New Yorkers seem to think New Jerseyans want and should get Staten Island while we vehemently disagree and have no idea where they get that idea from. Wishful thinking perhaps?

Actually New Yorkers want to annex the Meadowlands.

True, the Colorado thing is Tea Party silliness (I'm a moderate GOP member myself. I agree with the tea party on Social Issues, but economically they are silly, and even in social issues they aren't that great, but that's for another thread). Also if they don't like what Colorado's become, move to Nebraska or Wyoming. Or better yet, try to convince your state that your view can work. Sadly I think the GOP is becoming the states rights ********* i've got mine party. Granted this may lead to a more libertarian party, but one that doesn't care about anyone except the individual.
