Give the Gem State a seacoast and a border with California?
That could be the outcome if efforts succeed by a group called Move Oregon’s Border in some of the 20 counties where the group has filed requests to collect signatures on petitions.
The deadline to gather signatures in the targeted Oregon counties is early August for them to go before voters in November. Wallowa County Clerk Sandy Lathrop received the petition in April and, after conferring with the county’s legal counsel Lathrop notified MOB President Mike McCarter on Tuesday, May 5, that the group may begin collecting signatures in the county.
Only 242 signatures are needed to get it on the November ballot.
If successful this would amuse me to no end. I could see it catching on and all but the dense urban areas joining an adjoining state with a much greater affinity for freedom. The economic and political implications would be quite interesting.
