Fed up on the prairie: 11 rural counties to vote in November on seceding from Colorado Published: October 7, 2013

“I would’ve never believed the state of Colorado would become this liberal,” said Lyle Miller, who owns the convenience store. “I’m afraid for my grandchildren. I want them to have the same heritage I had.”

In November, 11 rural counties will hold a vote on whether to secede from the state and work to form their own — or maybe join Wyoming.
