Oregon group continues to push to move borders and join Idaho

 

Idaho is a very RED STATE, while Oregon on the other hand is very BLUE. Some rural Oregonians who are tired of living in a blue state want to change the map in order to join Idaho.

They say they want to maintain their rural values and join a Republican majority state.

Last year, a group called “Greater Idaho” succeeded in getting petitions approved for circulation in two Oregon counties to join the Gem State. Now, CBS 2 News reports, their proposal called ‘Move Oregon’s Border’ will be on the ballot in 5 Oregon counties this May.

The plan is different from secession as it only includes a shift in borders and does not interfere with the balance of power in the U.S. Senate, create a new state, or increase the number of states in the country.

However, even if all rural counties vote ‘yes’ on the movement, the ballot would still require agreement of the three state legislatures and Congress.
