Secession on the Menu in Pacific Northwest with Liberal Politics to Blame

While some of the more sensational news outlets have been hyping up the possibility that Americans could incite a second civil war in the coming months, some actual plans for secession have been hatching.

No, this isn’t out in California, where the north and south portions of the state have considered bailing on the bay area for some time.  Nor is it New York, where rural, conservative majority of the state’s area is governed by the Big Apple’s metropolitan voter volume, prompting efforts to shed the Five Burroughs from something that would be called “New Amsterdam”.

No, this is the Pacific Northwest that we’re talking about.

A 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.

The group, Move Oregon’s Border for a Greater Idaho, has secured initial approval from two counties and has set a goal of getting enough signatures to put the proposal on local ballots in November, USA Today reported.

Barring a setback, voters in southeastern Oregon could see a question on a redrawn state border with Idaho, the newspaper reported.

The news comes as the nation is hotly divided down partisan, political lines, and brief incidents of violence have occurred due to this schism.
