The question of statehood is now on the ballot in four of the eleven counties considering secession from Colorado. One can only hope that if they are denied a separate statehood by Colorado's state government or by the federal government, they will simply secede from the Union altogether.
'(Newser) – At least four rural Colorado counties will vote Nov. 5 on whether to make "Northern Colorado" the 51st state. Fed up with what they see as a lack of representation in Denver, Weld County this week became the largest county to get on board, after its commissioners voted to place the referendum on its fall ballot; Cheyenne, Sedgwick, and Yuma counties will do the same, the Washington Times reports. Voters will be asked whether they want their counties to "pursue becoming the 51st state of the United States of America?"'
