#1 Meanwhile, not to be outdone by Long Island, or twas it Manhattan ...???

* NATIONAL PUBLIC RADIO [NPR.org] > FORGET THE 50 STATES [57 States?], THE US IS REALLY ELEVEN NATIONS, AUTHOR SAYS.

To include most of upper Mexico = "EL NORTE", + CENTRAL CANADA TO HUDSON BAY.

versus

* FREEREPUBLIC > [Lee Martell] FORGET PUERTO RICO [aka Castroite Cuba/Quba-lite]- ITS CLEAR THE PHILIPPINES SHOULD BECOME OUR 51ST STATE. OH YEAH!

versus

* OTOH WORLD MILITARY FORUM > GLOBAL TIMES: PHILIPPINES' "MANILA TIMES": SCHOLAR SAYS PHILIPPINES SEAS + LUZON STRAITS CRUX/CENTER FOR CHINA'S NUCLEAR AMBITIONS IN EAST ASIA. PHILIPPINES HAS NO ANTI-SUBMARINE WARFARE [ASW] CAPABILITY, WHILE TAIWAN'S IS LIMITED.

* IIRC MARIANAS VARIETY > OP-ED: REUNIFICATION AND STATEHOOD FOR MARIANAS IS THE [final = ultimate] GOAL.-

#2  "We can't outvote the metropolitan areas anymore, and the rural areas don't have a voice anymore,"

But, but, but this has been the plan of the Party of Urban America for decades.

#3 The Urban party that can't create its own food, energy, reduce its own waste, and somehow moves all the icky stuff elsewhere (NIMBY). Katrina showed, it can't last more than two or three days without starting to implode when them rural thingies don't show up regularly.

#4 Secession will most likely not succeed but the effort certainly does make a statement about large blue liberal urban areas that dictate to the rest of us.

#5 Ref #4: The Chicago democratic machine and poverty stricken downstate Illinois being a very good example.

#6 It'd sure be nice to have a couple of those folks in the US Senate.

True, so, they will take what they need by force.

#9 They should blockade the cities for a couple of days and see if the power shifts a little.

#10 80% of Colorado's Ag production is in those counties, as well as a majority of the petroleum production (including Nat Gas) in the state. They leave, all of a sudden they don't have liberals in Boulder and Denver tying their hands on enviro restrictions that are worse than Fed ones.

But the real change here is water rights - the Platte river feeds a lot of Denver's suburbs. And it gets diverted from Ag to do that. If this becomes a state, the Denver metro area will have to go hunting for water.

I hope they find a way to follow through on and leave the mob rule behind and put forth a government that is a republic.
