Fed up by liberal policies, Oregon residents petition to join Idaho

A group of conservative Oregon residents is petitioning to move several counties into neighboring Idaho, where they believe legislators will more effectively represent their values and interests. Oregon is overwhelmingly liberal, while Idaho is conservative. Two counties in Oregon have approved the idea, and the group is aiming to have the proposal put onto ballots at the November election.

If they get this done I would actually consider moving back to Oregon. Greater Idaho sounds badass.

As long as they don’t vote for the same people that put them on the back burner I’m with this.

An interesting idea but sadly I doubt it will ever become reality.

This just shifts the problem until Boise gets Californicated. The solution is to #OverturnReynoldsVSims and give rural counties a say in state government again.

Idaho Absolutely does not want ANYTHING to do with Gaven Newsome, Adam Schitt,Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters, Dianne Finestine, Ron Wyden, or Jeff Merkerly! Keep your crooked politicians in your own states! Idaho is just fine without you scumbags!

There’s also a semi substantial movement to create a 51st state in Virginia. Pretty much everything that’s the western 80 percent of virgina is looking to create their own state (Appalachia) or become West Virginia. Honestly there arguments are sound af and seems like it could be possible

They should. Why have the city centers decide how the rest of the state should live? Especially when you have liberals in urban areas making laws and policy that should never be applied to people in rural areas. But that's what you get from authoritarians.
