Not Just for the Potatoes: Conservatives Want to Leave Oregon and Join Idaho
The desire to move away from the destructive Democrats is strong for people that have had to put up with their scams and lies. This is the case for many conservatives living in the near destroyed by Democrats state of Oregon. The liberals run everything, and they are making a huge mess of the state. The people in certain counties in Oregon have tried to vote them all out, recalling the state’s governor and making changes to leadership.
Every attempt to fix the state and kick the loony liberals out has failed. They have even asked for help from their representatives in the House. But now after the fight, they want to leave the state of Oregon. They do not want to move; they want to see that the border between Idaho and Oregon is changed permanently.
The group already has permission from the counties. So now they need to get enough signatures to help the movement appear on the ballot in the coming election. They are not the only group of people that want to change borders because of the nasty Democrats. Many in the counties of Virginia want to see their regions annexed over to West Virginia because of the threats from the Democrats.
The counties seeking to leave would have to vote on the measure. If they can obtain the needed support, they would have the right to put the request up for a vote by year-end. Mike McCarter is one that favors the move. He has stated that “Rural counties have become increasingly outraged by-laws coming out of the Oregon Legislature that threaten our livelihoods, our industries, our wallet, our gun rights, and our values. We tried voting those legislators out but rural Oregon is outnumbered and our voices are now ignored. This is our last resort.”
These people have reached the end of their ropes with the Democrats. And yet the Democrats just do not get it. They do not care that people are leaving. They are happy to be in control, and they are happy if the conservatives want to leave. Proving once and for all that the Democrats want power, and they don’t care who they hurt on the path to power.
This same kind of attempt has been made in the past at least to put something on the ballot that would stop the damaging effects of the Democrats as they pursued a greenhouse bill years earlier. The fight failed and the attempt never made it to the ballot.
But this time it is different. There is more at stake than just a controversial bill that people do not like. They will need thousands of signatures to make the idea happen. When they tried to recall their governor, they failed in getting the needed signatures. But this time the numbers are coming in. they only need a little over 5,000 signatures to propose a voting matter on the ballot.
Valerie Gottschalk who is another person looking to leave the state has stated that “People here would prefer Idaho’s conservative governance to the progressive/liberal current Oregon governance. Every time I look at the Facebook group Greater Idaho, the group has gotten bigger.” The desire to leave is increasing rapidly.
The region would see 22 counties join Idaho. A significant blow to the state of Oregon. But the Democrats just do not care. The state of Oregon under Democrat rule has had its issues. The Democrats are all about themselves and who they can control. If people want to leave, they are happy to see them go.
What the nation is seeing in Oregon and Virginia is just the beginning of the end of Democrats. So many people are fed up with their lies and rhetoric that they are ready to leave. At some point, the Democrats will make a huge mistake and the people are going to take over. President Trump was just the first piece of the puzzle that proved people want the Democrats out. They want to see them gone from the face of the country.
