Conservative Oregonians Draft Secession Petition, Look to Join Gem State

And it’s not for the cheap potatoes, either.

The mainstream media would like you to believe that our nation is on the verge of another Civil War, simply because this sort of rhetoric of good for ratings.

Sure, we are a divided nation in 2020, but the severity of our split has only been enhanced by the infotainment industry’s attempts to conjure dread for dollars.  We’re heated, yes, but there’s no real indication that some states would attempt to secede from the nation.

Some counties in Oregon may go to Idaho, but no whole states are going to be forming their own nation.

Frustrated by liberal policies, some Oregon residents petitioned to leave the state – by moving the border with Idaho westward.

The movement secured initial approval from two counties and aims to get enough signatures to put the proposal on ballots in November, according to the group called Greater Idaho.

If the group succeeds, voters in southeast Oregon may see a question on whether their county should become part of Idaho by redrawing the border.

“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,” Mike McCarter, one of the chief petitioners, said in a news release. “We tried voting those legislators out, but rural Oregon is outnumbered and our voices are now ignored. This is our last resort.”

In New York State, several attempts have been made to gather support for the districting of New York City, akin to a Washington DC deal, leaving the rest of the mostly conservative state to govern themselves.

Recently, on the other side of the nation, the State of California was considering a possible two or three-way split, with conservative Norther California moving out from under the thumbs of the far-left metropolises on the southern coastline.
