    There have been more than a few counties in Idaho which would welcome them. The land and people in Eastern Oregon are way more like Idaho than Oregon anyway. The Blues make a decent physical barrier and Hells Canyon an effective second one.

    Oregon is such a very beautiful place - it really is. It is a prime example of how the far-left grabs the nicest places first and destroys them by bringing in ideology that doesn't work, random violence, feces on the streets, etc. Years back many of my buddies would jump on a Southwest flight from around here and head up for fun beer weekends in Portland. Not anymore.

    For what it's worthy there's long-running, similar interest with the State of Jefferson in northern California. It's a great idea. You see the stickers on cars all around here. But, it will never be allowed.

      I spent 6 months working in downtown Portland in the 80's. You can have it and the horrible climate. Beautiful? Maybe to a duck or to mold. There are many, many beautiful places with much better climates, both natural and political. Ditto for Seattle.
      I have heard that the eastern part of Oregon is much more pleasant, and similar to Idaho. I spent a couple summer months in Boise (also in the 80's) and it was delightful (especially coming from Houston.) I do not think I'd like to winter in Boise though.

    Make sure Eastern Washington gets an opportunity to join in the new State. Some are still pushing the idea of the State of Republic", comprised of counties from CA, OR, WA, and ID. Even Spokane is starting to get tainted with liberalism, something similar about the biggest cities in this country, they seem to go under.

    Liberals don't care that nobody likes them or their policies. As a matter of fact, the more people dislike them, the more they love shoving their ideas down our throats. It's a power trip for them. Now that they can steal any election they want, expect much more of this behavior in the future.

    I think secession might be a way to start geographically/politically realigning the fractured country. If NP gets her way with the Jan.6th Witch Hunt through congress this country will be torn apart. The Dems will be going after 70million plus Americans who were and still are Trump supporters, to treat them the same way the Chinese government is doing to the Uihurs.

    And I would like to see at least Northern Nevada join this effort and everyone just take it all the way to secession.

    For 30 years I have advocated that Nevada trade Clark County to California in exchange for the Northern Cal Counties that obviously want out. Timber, water, and seaports would be added to Great Basin geothermal, solar, and all the huge production of gold and silver in Elko, Lander, and Humboldt Counties. Add all that to the huge amounts of cattle food production throughout Northern Nevada, Eastern Oregon and Idaho. All the agriculture of southern Idaho. Reopen the Carson City mint and from our own production issue our own gold coinage (with the dollar sign on the back), and silver coinage.

    Problem now is that since then, Carson City and Reno have gone Californo collectivist libtard and the Nevada State government has gone down the tubes because of it. So just the Northern Counties now. Go North thou tired taxed and abused peoples. No petitions, appeals, just cite the List of Grievances and do it.

    A pleasant daydream? Sigh. Perhaps. It is that cost of rebellion versus the cost of compliance thing.
