OreGONE - Oregon Joins California In Proposal To Secede After Trump Victory

Tyler Durden's picture

Just yesterday we wrote about the "Calexit" proposal that was starting to gather steam after Trump's historic victory on Tuesday night.  Now The Oregonian points out that a group in Oregon has also filed the "Oregon Secession Act" in response to the perceived notion that "Oregonian values are no longer the values held by the rest of the United States."  But, unlike the Calexit proposal, the distraught Hillary supporters in Oregon are thinking big picture and have invited the states of California, Washington, Hawaii, Nevada and Alaska to all band together to form a new nation.

On Thursday morning, Jennifer Rollins, a lawyer, and Christian Trejbal, a writer, filed the Oregon Secession Act.

 

"Oregonian values are no longer the values held by the rest of the United States," Trejbal said over the phone Thursday.

 

Those values? "Life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness," Trejbal said, "plus equality."

 

"Obviously," he said, the ballot proposal "came about partially in response to the election results on Tuesday."

 

Trejbal said that joining forces with other states like Washington, California and Nevada is "a viable way to go forward."

 

These states, he said, "could all get together and form a nation that uphold the values that we share."

 

To start the ballot title drafting process, the Oregon Secession Act must receive 1,000 signatures. Trejbal said he and Rollins would be at Pioneer Courthouse Square in Portland on Thursday night to begin the process of getting those signatures.

And here is the full 1-page proposal...clearly they put a lot of time and effort into this between their violent protest sessions and crying fits.

The good thing is that the devastated Hillary supporters are moving through the "7 Stages of Grief" pretty quickly as they seem to have already reached stage 4 after only 3 days.  That said, we suspect the depression stage could last for a little while...college professors shouldn't expect our snowflakes to be taking tests for at least another couple of weeks.

Sure, pay you part of the national debt in gold and fuck off.  Your campanies will leave or face the reality of never selling anything to the remaining.

When everyone else (the majority) are assholes, it's time for some reflection. You left whingers have missed the story of the Clinton's history of crimes against their republic and you have missed the lesson of critical thinking 101. You are welcome to secede and of course, we encourage you to take the Clintons, their banking oligarch compatriots with their counterfeiting schemes, their warmongering industrial complex and the deep state controllers with their hundreds of trillions of hidden debt that they have foisted upon this country along with you. This is something I have been wishing for for ages, a country free of the leeches who destroy us. You are a mob of uneducated thugs who deserve your own country. Oh and please open your borders to all comers. You wouldn't want to be seen as xenophobic and raysist, now would you?

Seriously? Maybe Toronto or Montreal might want these triggered babies but there's a whole lot of Canada that doesn't pay this kind of whining any kind of attention at all. We'd rather import another rack of wayward Libyans and Pakistani posing as Syrians.

Personally, I can't think of any country where their perceived utopia exists. However, a study of their thinking is warranted as to the power of brainwashing and the subsequent bending of reality.
On another tack, who in their right mind would hire these idiots?

I understand your frustration, suspicion and anger. I really do. I am internally tossed but know that the choice of Trump is only a first step. I agree with the gist of the article but take exception to the some of its conclusions such as where it parallels Trump's promise to build a wall at the Mexican border to that of the disgraceful Apartheid practice of Israel's imprisionment of the Palestinians in their own country. Further, I can't see how he can be labeled a racist for providing security for its citizens against a silent invsasion, an expectation of citizens placed on his shoulders as President. It's why you as a home owner have bolts and locks on your windows and doors. In this day and age, you'd be an utter fool to disregard your family's or ipso facto, your country's security. At the border, government agencies are our security system.

Having read the article (What Trump Means) and watched the embedded video, I found my suspicions and distrust of powerful men reconfirmed. Trump has used the banker's (constitutionally unlawful) debt money to his advantage and is a vociferous proponent of using debt and other people's money, to build his empire. I get it, it's the system and you play the hand you're dealt with. Just like he used the the tax system. It too is a rort for insiders. He is outside the political system but is most surely a manipulator of those in it in order to advance his plans. Still, I think he deplores the likes of Hillary et al but make no mistake, HE IS A PRACTICED EXPONENT OF THEIR RULES UNDER "LAW" AND THEIR WAYS.

Mark these words; If he is promising us that he is the champion of the people and that his intention is to place the halls of government back into the hands of the people he represents, he'd better deliver. If he has won this position by taking advantage of an opportunity when it presents itself, then he had better understand the tornado of resentment that he has lassoed. There will be hell to pay which will make the petulent and disgraceful "uprising" of the disenfranchised SJWs look like a gathering of a bible study group.

As I said, I feel your pain. The video reaffirmed my suspicions of powerful men who abuse the power of position and our pain is that bilious resentment of the betrayal that has been practiceed upon us and I thank you for sharing it (the link).

My suspicions gained through experience and are unmalleable, insomuch that Trump, (nor any other candidate) did not promise or affirm as President, his unambiguous intent to instruct our bicameral Congress and The Judicary that they are to forthwith apply the supreme laws of the land which dictate the arrangements and agreements of community, in The Republic of America, our Constitution. I'm like Ron Paul; I want my Republic back. I'm not a purist, I'm a Libertarian and there are no allowances for compomise.

Therefore, I ask you to scroll to the top of you linked blog and read the first article (How to Interpret the News). It starts:

Whether you choose to believe it or not, those who propagate the news either have their own agenda or are controlled or wagged by powerful knaves with agendas. That’s why we have a systematic approach to the news – or rather to yellow journalism – we want to share with you.

Question everything.

Don’t believe anything you hear unless you personally research and analyze it, then figure out which way is up."

If the Dems, SJWs and various other true believers would only practice what they preach and follow the above advice, revisit the Constitution and see if it still holds true, then we might have a chance of agreeing to a unifing umbrella of sovereignty, what government means, what is the importance of money and what are the laws that are to dictate our rights to entry as a community, door bolts included.

wildbad's picture

but seriously...thats what states are for...they are the sovereign blocks. they are where the differences of opinion SHOULD be seen.

all of these cessation themes are relevant only in the context of a too powerful fed. as soon as the emphasis is rolled back to states and localities being the aglomeration points of democratic power and responsibility cessation movements become instantly irrelevant.

10th amendment rollback!

Al Gophilia's picture

I agree. I was starting to ramble there and so, 20 edits later decided to end my post. The more we discuss localism the sooner we get back to the roots of the constitution. In these times, the size of the fed and state governments have become overbearing and overreaching, a abomination of the original intent. It's why i believe the constitution has to be revisited and discussed by everyone, with the purpose of either ratifying it or rewriting it. We obviously have a group of people in positions of government who only pay lip service to it , trotting its tattered bones out when the need to remind the gullible why they need to pay taxes or why they should go off to fight in foreign wars s.o it is ineffectual or our representatives are treasonous. The discussion needs to be held on a national level or we descend into tribalism.

cayman's picture

Bingo.  Exactly wildbad.

any_mouse's picture

You must have a unique perspective on the 10th Amendment.

"The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people."

Rollback Federal powers to only those explicitly delegated by the Constitution.

Rollback State powers to only those not prohibited by the Constitution.

There is violence in the United States. This time around there are no Nazis, ultra-liberals, the far right, the Tea Party, the misogynists, the homophobes, the anti-abortionists, the conservatives, the fanatics, the fascists, the uneducated white men, The apostles, the Baptists, the austerities, the racists, the Amish, the capitalists, the pigs. This time it is the Democrats who do not accept the election results, the higher human beings.

Therefore, it is good violence, from which it saves us and expounds our sins.

Break it all down. All. Bust with these windows, rubbish bins, lamps, cars, all for our good. Knock on uneducated whites. It's that Good people is another superior class than us.

Deplorables hymn (Imagine Dragons Who We Are)

We were never welcome here
We were never welcome here at all
No.

It’s who we are
Doesn’t matter if we’ve gone too far
Doesn’t matter if it’s all okay
Doesn’t matter if it’s not our day

So won’t you save us
What we are
Don’t look clear
Cause it’s all uphill from here

I think this would be funny as hell to watch, and agitate.

El Oregonian's picture

Hey, look at a map of how it breaks down. It is 90% of the state is Republican and the rest are Progressive Democrats in Portland and Salem and bits of Eugene (college towns). The rest of us have been frustrated with these Libtards. They do not live in Oregon, these are mostly snot-nosed liberal crybabies (along with their professors) who were raised in another state and come here for college, then they leave replaced by another batch of snot-nosed underclassmen... er, underPEOPLE? LOL, who screw it all up for the rest of us.

archon's picture

Maybe if we just drew the boundary 10 miles from the coast, that would be enough?  Then when they've all starved to death, we could just take it all back?

effendi's picture

If the west coast states want the option of leaving then perhaps those states themselves should first break up into smaller states. Big chunks of them are not leftist anti gun rainbow shitholes and would gladly be free of the cities. Those cities can then provide services like making lattes (at $15 minimum wage) to each other.... and then what? Meanwhile the productive conservative parts will thrive without all the snotty controls of the cities.

With no sarcasm intended, this secession stuff should be seriously considered... even encouraged.

 

Just vote and implement at the COUNTY level.

Canada has already been through it many times. It's all we're serious until they have to take their portion of the debt, transfer payments stop cold, same tariffs other countries deal with, same trade restrictions, etc... By then the ones near retirement shriek "HELL NO!!!" while their kids ponder the real costs and their grandkids wave signs about.

Treason Season's picture

WTF! Fuk the debt! and Rot child's children!

LibertarianMenace's picture

Ah, Oregonian, it's the same everywhere: it's urban versus rural. Just look at the electoral map. The country is widely non-statist and self-reliant, all except for the urban singularities of stupidity. Here in PA the rurals went to maximum warp (calling on the Amish reserves, apparently) just to overcome the combined gravity well of Philthy and Pittsburgh.

More broadly and throughout the country, it's playing out pretty much the way Codevilla's 2010 article described it. This is completely untenable for the long haul. Hence, I propose that the JIT supply system be put in neutral as we head into winter. I'm told that within weeks the urbans would fold in on themselves. By next spring, we'd have a completely different country.

What would we do with all the freedom?

exactly what is it that Oregon has for an economy to support itself other than manufacturing members of the free shit army? I guess a there is a lot of income from Soros to pay protesters but if they have nothing to protest they will be broke.  Get rid of California, Oregon, and Washington and we could greatly reduce our taxes.

They're too stupid, and high, to figure out that software and legal weed are not an economy . 

Fuck em, if they succeed declare war and conquer them. No more arguments.

Jeffersonian Liberal's picture

Who do they think they are, a bunch of ignorant, racist, southern redneck slavery-lovers?

No, sorry, but they can't leave.

The South wanted to secede to escape what they saw as an increasingly tyrannical federal government (NOT because of slavery).

The Statists in the north (who were the big-government 'liberals' and 'progressives' of the day) decided the South did not have a right to secede, that no state had the right secede, even though prior to the CW on two separate occasions New York state threatened to secede over various issues and no one raised an objection based on their right to secede.

But the State refused the right of the South to secede, took them to war, won that war, and forever destroyed the right of states to secede.

Well, I do still believe that a state has the right to secede.

However, liberals/leftists and states that vote that way do NOT have the right to secede. They MUST put up with the 'tyranny' of the increasing power of the federal government.

In short,

Liberals/progressives/statists, you wanted an iron-fisted state to drag people across the line to socialism. You cheered and jeered that success during Clinton's term, you denounced Bush even though he was Clinton's fourth and fifth terms, then you cheered and jeered for eight years of Obama.

You OWN the overreach of the federal government. And now...NOW you suddenly want state sovereignty.

Fuck off and die. At this point I'd fully support a CWII to prevent you from seceding and forcing you to tolerate a president and policies you object to.

Just like you've been doing to us since W. Wilson and FDR.

Just like you hoped to do under Clinton II.

The intensity of your tears and anger, that would have been the intensity of your mockery and ridicule and smug satisfaction had HiLIARy succeeded in stealing the election.

Your tears and your pain are a balm to those who love freedom and whom you have become bloody and chafed under the yoke of soft tyranny for 24 years.

What are you nuts?  If someone wants to leave, LET THEM GO!!!!!  Would you want a woman around who wants to divorce you but you won't let her leave.  Not only is that unbearable, but she might kill you in the middle of the night while you are sleeping, sorta like those states are doing to the US Political Process.  Let them go.

Jeffersonian Liberal's picture

No, I'm not nuts.

The husband/wife, man/woman is a false analogy. People can go their own separate ways and be done with it. These leftists only want to rule over others, scream with red faces Democracy Now! and ridicule their opponents and shove their leftist agendas down our throats.

But they only want to be a part of the country, only support democracy, and are only happy when they get their way.

If we let them leave, guess what. When they put another leftist tyrant back in the WH, they'll want to join the union again.

Yes, I want to punish these leftists just like they've been punishing us for decades upon decades.

And we ought to impose a quota on them ensuring that every leftist neighborhood in Portland has at least 15% Trump supporters living in them. And force the leftists to subsidize their housing.

Fuck them.

Cloud9.5's picture

Yes we would.  As a southerner I do not wish to visit on the children of the progressives what their ancestors visited upon the south.  Go in peace and take California with you.  But know this, if you leave a Democrat will never again be elected president.

A condition of their being allowed to leave alive should be a signed declaration that the South was right 156 years ago.
