I support it!
Any Conservative who lives in one of these liberal controlled states deserves a better life, and most of the midwest won’t fail to deliver.
According to sources people from: Sherman, Lake, Grant, Baker, and Malheur counties all voted overwhelmingly to have the border redrawn.
Still, the vote only has a long shot of achieving its purpose sources say.
This is similar to plans for five separate Californias—a proposal that has never seen success, but is brought up every couple of years.
Looks like the trend is continuing; people vote with their feet and no one wants to stay in a heavily regulated blue state with high costs of living and increasingly woke policies.
Here is what people are saying:
Big Country News, a local news organization had more:
Five counties in eastern Oregon voted for becoming a part of Idaho on Tuesday. Voters approved ballot measures in Sherman, Lake, Grant, Baker, and Malheur counties. No counties voted against. On average, voters were 62% in favor of moving borders to include their counties in Idaho. Two additional Oregon counties had already voted in favor in November - Union and Jefferson.
In the five counties that voted on this issue, the average turnout was 43%, much higher than the statewide average of 25% for this election.
The ballot measures are a part of an effort to move the Oregon/Idaho border to extend Idaho’s jurisdiction over rural, conservative counties of eastern and southern Oregon. According to a release from movement organizers, the ballot measures are intended to put pressure on state legislatures of Oregon and Idaho to negotiate an interstate compact to relocate their common border.
Fox News had an earlier report:
The group of frustrated Oregon conservatives, who have tried everything from voting out Democratic state officials they consider too liberal to recalling the state’s governor and appealing to their Washington representatives, now want to leave the state by moving the border with neighboring Idaho westward, a published report Monday said.
“No matter what happens, we’ll maintain our name,” Little said.
Conservative group in Oregon want to leave state, petition to move border with neighboring Idaho. "What they’re interested [in] is they would like to have a little more autonomy, a little more control, a little more freedom and I can understand that," said Little.
Of Oregon's 36 counties, only 14 in the Willamette Valley area would remain if the group succeeds, the newspaper reported.
