Fed Up: Oregon Residents Petition to Join Idaho Over Frustrating Liberal Policies

Many residents of leftist-controlled states like Oregon are growing more and more frustrated with the policies they are governed by.

Now, some Oregon residents have had enough and are petitioning to become part of “Greater Idaho.”

The plan also includes part of Northern California.

Here’s more from USA Today:

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.”

Democrats control the governor’s office and state Legislature. Last year, Senate Republicans left the capital to protest a bill on greenhouse gas emissions.

Valerie Gottschalk, a chief petitioner, said she hopes the proposal will gain traction like the petition to recall Gov. Kate Brown did last summer, though proponents did not collect the 280,000 signatures for a recall election.

Greater Idaho said it needs to collect about 2,400 signatures from Josephine County and about 3,000 from Douglas County to appear on the ballot.

Oregon is a mess.

Governor Kate Brown actually sent police after the Republicans who skipped out on a climate vote last year.

In the end the Republican lawmakers were victorious because there wasn’t enough of a majority to pass the resolution without Republican votes.

So all of the drama was really for nothing.

But when a Democrat Governor sends armed police after lawmakers who are skipping a vote, it is certainly enough drama to make people want to leave en masse.

To be clear, it is not the liberal nutjobs who are driving this secession attempt.

Those who would like to leave would likely be glad to leave them to their own demise.

Sounds like hell to me.

What about you?

Good luck Oregon conservatives!
