Quote of the day—Mike McCarter

Rural Oregon is declaring as loudly as it can that it does not consent to being misgoverned by Oregon’s leadership and chooses to be governed as part of a state that understands rural Oregon’s values and way of making a living.

We call on the Oregon Legislature to not dare to hold these counties captive. Let the people decide which legislature they shall govern themselves by. This week’s poll shows that Idaho is ready to accept our counties.

  1. It’s the age-old story isn’t it? “Let my people go!”

    Did you know that, of the 600,000 people who were led out of Egypt and across the Red Sea, only two of them actually made it into the land of Canaan (the promised land)?

    That doesn’t bode well for us then, does it? But who among us even understands that tragic and yet amazing story well enough to be able to iterate its main points such that today’s culture would even comprehend it (to say noting of anyone actually agreeing with those points, which is an additional, separate and much higher standard)?

    Or do Dunning and Kruger get the last word in explaining what went wrong with us in the end? Who after all can rightly claim to believe in, or to reject, that which he fails to comprehend?

  2. As much as I appreciate the sentiment- do you think the Federal Government can allow this to happen?

    • They might be better off officially declaring their state government in rebellion against their own state and federal constitutions, and cite specifics. Then they can convene a constitutional legislature in absentia (since the capital is occupied by rebels) and KICK the rebel areas out of the state.

      • And that would leave the commies with small enclaves in Portland, Salem, Ashland, and Eugene. Why not just make them so uncomfortable they move to New York instead?

  3. The sentiment is understandable. The people of Northern Kommiefornia have been trying to secede and become the State of Jefferson for DECADES…..and it hasn’t happened. This plan is going to die on the vine also. It requires the approval of the legislature in Oregon AND Idaho plus approval from Congress. That isn’t going to happen. And that’s not factoring in the inevitable meddling from the black robed pirates infesting the judiciary.

  4. I suspect that, despite the clearly obvious need, the only way such a thing will occur is to emulate Sherman.

    It should be remembered that among those things that enabled Sherman to stroll about downtown Savannah included the full support of the then-federal government; whether that is a requirement for a modern day reenactment is unknown, but there’s probably a means of achieving that as well.

  5. as this abound in the country as many states are politically dominated by big cities where values are different than in other areas of the state.

    Such efforts further the National Divorce in two main ways. First, it encourages more people to think about prospects for the future in a unitary state. Right now, advocates of the National Divorce are a distinct minority among conservatives. There are Lincoln fanbois, Pinochet fanbois, people who think we can vote our way out of this and mostly people captured by inertia. But a couple of successes and inertia starts to break up. The second way this helps is solving some of the practical problems associated with the National Divorce. All divorces have to split up the assets and liabilities as well as severing a relationship that has become untenable. Put this on a statewide or national scale and it becomes massively complex. The experience will help.

    Btw, I can’t see any reason why DC would object to Greater Idaho as it doesn’t materially upset the national balance of power. Creating an entirely new state is more fraught because Senators. We have been here before with the Missouri Compromise. One slave state for one free state. Buys time for sanity to prevail. Didn’t work in the 1800s but hope springs eternal.

    • And completely misses the human nature that rules this world.
      All you say would be correct, except the fact they won’t let you walk away. Not even by moving your county to another state if it’s for freedom.
      England didn’t do it in the 1770’s. They didn’t in 1860’s. And they ain’t going to today.
      Where do you think they want to put all those stupid ass windmills?
      You think your a person. They think of you as parasitic property. To do with as they please.
      We won’t be voting our way out of Oregon, or begging permission to move, any where. Not from this crew.

      • However bad our leftists are, they aren’t Soviets. Today, there are many FSRs that are more or less independent of Russia. This all happened with low levels of violence, certainly less than our CW1. Lots of disruption, but nothing like an all-out civil war.
