Conservatives In Two Oregon Counties Launch Petition To Officially Join The State Of Idaho

Conservatives in Oregon have had it.

People from two counties that are rural and much more conservative feel like no matter what they do to make changes, they are overridden by liberals in Portland and other more populated and liberal areas.

Now they have gone to the last resort.

They are petitioning to have their counties leave the state of Oregon and join Idaho.

A group of Oregon residents is petitioning to have two counties in their state join Idaho, citing Oregon’s Democratic leadership.

Move Oregon’s Border for a Greater Idaho said Josephine and Douglas counties have accepted ballot initiatives supporting a goal of joining Idaho, the organization said in a press release earlier this month.

The Josephine County ballot initiative specifically “makes it county policy to cooperate with any state effort to move the Oregon/Idaho border, if any such effort develops,” the group said.

The Douglas County Initiative amends a current ordinance to “add Idaho officials to the list of officials who may be lobbied by Douglas County commissioners. The suggested ballot question is ‘Shall the County Board be authorized to advocate for Idaho legislation, such as making this county a county of Idaho?’” the group noted.

The group must gather 2,429 signatures in Josephine County by Aug. 5 and 2,955 signatures from Douglas County residents to appear on the ballot in the general election in November.

This is remarkable.

It also reflects a growing reality that many people understand perfectly.

Don’t be surprised if this starts to happen in a lot of places.
