Voter frustration with government hits critical mass
People are about to give up.

While the move by residents in several Colorado counties to secede from the state has been described as frustration over recent moves by the legislature in Denver, a retired political scientist and author says the move actually is a symptom of a much larger undercurrent of frustration that Republicans are in a prime position to tap into in 2014 and beyond.
“What is happening in Colorado is a little bit different than what we have seen elsewhere,” Charles Dunn a retired political scientist with Regent University said. “What we’re seeing is a manifestation of the frustration and distrust by the people in Weld County who are angry at what their state government and leaders are doing and this has caused them to be distrustful of them.”
Immediately following the reelection of Barack Obama in 2012 petitions from every state began appearing on the White House’s “We the People” website respectfully asking for permission to be allowed to secede from the union.
