    The movement from some Oregon conservatives to push to secede and join the adjacent conservative state of Idaho is heating up.

    Citizens of nine counties in eastern Oregon have already indicated they would support the redrawing of Oregon's borders; two more counties have impending votes urging legislators to support such a move.

    "It makes more sense for Eastern Oregonians to get state-level governance coming from Idaho, where they share their values, share their culture, share their politics, than it does to be governed by Western Oregon," Matt McCaw, the spokesman for the Greater Idaho movement, informed Fox News.

    In order for the secession move, which started three years ago, to succeed, both the state legislatures of Oregon and Idaho would have to approve, as well as the U.S. Congress.

    The west side of Oregon, which contains urban areas such as Portland, Eugene and Bend, leans heavily to the political Left, but much of the rest of the state harbors conservative values.

    "It's always been a problem because the west side has many more voters," McCaw added. "They have the numbers to dictate what happens statewide."

    "Idaho doesn't have a homelessness problem; Oregon's keeps growing," the Greater Idaho movement claims on its website. "Idaho doesn't restrict the building of new homes. Combining all taxes together, the average Idahoan paid $1722 less in taxes in 2019 than the average Oregonian. That's averaging together every adult or child."

    Noting the preponderance of voters in northwestern Oregon embrace leftist policies, Greater Idaho opines, "This has led to a ruling party that ignores eastern Oregon because none of our legislators are in the ruling party. ... But in Idaho, our representatives would be part of the majority. 80% of the Idaho legislature is Republican, and mostly rural."

    "Oregon's state school curriculum teaches radical theories on race, gender, sexuality, and anti-Americanism," the website charges. "Oregon limits charter schools, homeschooling, and local control. Idaho's COVID mandates were only statewide for a few weeks, not two years. We're not leaving Oregon; northwestern Oregon left us."

    Oregon's border with Washington was not finalized until the late 1950s.

    "We've proven that people in Eastern Oregon want to pursue this idea, and we're going to keep trying to get as many of those counties as possible to get on the ballot," McCaw said. "But it's time for the legislature to pick up the ball and start this discussion."

    McCaw is confident that the movement will see success.

    "By 2024, you could have a border moved," he said. "Absolutely."

Inarguably, the policies of the Democrats in congress and Joe Biden as the Executive is plunging the United States into a recession, if we are not already there; a recession that was completely avoidable. Will abrupt changes in policies occur in time?
  Yes, the Democrats have a bold plan, yet to be revealed, to save us.
  No, there will have to be a complete undoing of the damage done by these Democrats.
  I can't do simple math, so how am I to understand the concept of basic economics.

The Democrat leadership has made constant, profound and incredible pronouncements that one's supportive vote for Republicans is tantamount to surrendering Democracy forever. Understanding their sincere thinking in their extreme position: How will you still vote on this election day?
  Democrat; because the continuance of this Democracy from the existential threat of extreme Republicans is paramount.
  Republican; the process of having a choice is the democratic method within what so called "Democracy" does exists.
  For the best candidate; and to be clear: This Constitutional Republic /this Representative Republic is not a Democracy, and never has been.

It has been far too many years since the Woke theology interlaced its canons within the fabric of the Indoctrination Realm, so it is nigh time to ask: Does this Representative Republic continue, as a functioning society of a self-governed people, by contending with the unusual, self absorbed dictates of the Woke, and their vast array of Victimhood scenarios?
  Yes, the Religion of Woke must continue; there are so many groups of underprivileged, underserved, a direct result of unrelenting Inequity; they deserve everything.
  No; the Woke fools must be toppled from their self-anointed pedestal; a functioning society of a good Constitutional people cannot withstand this level of "existential" favoritism as it exists now.
  I just observe; with this thoughtful observation: What will happen "when the Vikings are breeching our walls;" how do the Woke react?
