So, we're back to (Colorado) northerners looking to tear the blanket. Well, I hope they know academic historians are predisposed to say mean things about the racial motivations of secessionists.

Of course, if it was lower (liberal) Colorado attempting to cut-n-run it'd be a wholly different matter entirely yessiree, you betcha.
