“Denver and Boulder have declared war not only on Weld County, but common sense itself with regulations designed to kill energy jobs,” according to one November post on the secession group's Facebook page. “Putting radical animal rights activists in positions of power over the ranching industry, two of Weld’s key economic drivers. They are also at war with small businesses. People who hold traditional values are vilified as racist homophobic (misogynist) bigots.”
All true. However, this could also be the small beginnings for a larger movement, one to split the country itself into two or more nations, depending on ideology. If that movement takes off, things could get spicy indeed.
