Oregon County SECESSION Moving FORWARD


10,105 views

You know what hasn’t happened in over a hundred years?

Some sort of secession. Whether it be areas seceding into other states, or states seceding from the union altogether. The Texas movement for secession gained some traction late last year, but was forgotten as calls to secede calmed down.

The call to secession is far from being forgotten in some parts of Oregon though.

According to reports, Harney County Oregon will put the decision to secede from Oregon into Idaho to a vote this November. The petition to bring this to vote has collected enough signatures to move the initiative forward.

Citizens are fed up with high taxes, government corruption, and the woke liberalized politics that plague many parts of Oregon.

If this succeeds then maybe Harney County won’t be the last place to secede into greener pastures.

Take a look:

The Epoch Times had more in depth reporting of the potential secession:

Harney County in Oregon will vote in November 2021 on a “Greater Idaho” proposal, potentially allowing it and several other Oregon counties to join the neighboring state, according to a group that has collected signatures for the initiative.

Citizens for Greater Idaho’s website said Monday the group has obtained enough signatures.

The group said that the proposal would “extend Idaho’s jurisdiction over rural, conservative counties of eastern and southern Oregon” and are also “intended to put pressure on the state legislatures of Oregon and Idaho to negotiate an interstate compact to relocate their common border.”

“Idaho’s government would defend us from the radical Left’s cultural revolution and preserve our way of life—Oregon’s government wouldn’t,” said Mike McCarter, president of Move Oregon’s Border and Citizens for Greater Idaho, in a news release. “We may be able to convince northwestern Oregon to let eastern and southern Oregon counties go.”

Geller Report added:

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.

The ballot measures are intended to put pressure on the state legislatures of Oregon and Idaho to negotiate an interstate compact to relocate their common border.

“Idaho’s government would defend us from the radical Left’s cultural revolution and preserve our way of life – Oregon’s government wouldn’t,” said Mike McCarter, president of Move Oregon’s Border and Citizens for Greater Idaho.

“We may be able to convince northwestern Oregon to let eastern and southern Oregon counties go. Because if they do, then the state income tax revenue would improve by $367 per wage earner annually, because the per capita personal income of these counties is only as high as Idaho’s. Is northwestern Oregon willing to forego that, just to keep Oregon looking big on a map? How does keeping our counties under the governance of Salem improve their lives in any way?”
