True, but many natives abuse the state too.
So what you're saying is that anyone moving here should all conform to the values of the democratic party just because the governor of Colorado was democratic in the time period you were born and grew up in, and that people shouldn't have a choice?If you're going to move to Colorado, you should respect our community and adapt.
Let's not even get into the issues with the overcrowding and cost of living.
You seem to think that only Denver or the Front Range is "Colorado". It is part of it, but hardly the majority of the state. There are 52 people per square mile in the state. If you eliminate the Front Range Cities, which are only a very small percentage of land in Colorado, the population of the rest of Colorado is 7-8 people per square mile. That's only a little more than Wyoming or Montana. 7-8 people per square mile isn't that crowded and a lot of areas in Colorado have a lot less population density than that.
Why not move then?Frankly I just miss the days of Denver being a hidden gem and life moved at a more casual pace.
As long as people keep having babies, the population will grow. It's not only Denver and it's not only Colorado. Currently, all of the fastest growing cities are in Arizona, Texas, Washington, Oregon, Utah, Florida, and North Carolina. The closest a Colorado city gets to the top of the list is Castle Rock at #14.
For large cities though, Denver is the 5th fastest growing. Still, it has been like that for decades. There is no big spike in population growth for Denver; it has been steadily growing at about the same rate since the 1870's. The metro area has been growing at a higher rate than the city of Denver, but the rate has been also fairly steady since about 1930 other than a decline after the 1965 flood. There has been no hyperbolic growth for the metro, the growth rate has remained relatively steady since around 1930. Unless you were born before 1930 or 1870 you were part of the steady growth rate since those two periods.
