[Ed. – Remember when it was horrifying and evidence of the KKK at work and all white-male imperialist for Texas to have a secessionist movement? Good times. Now, secession is the choice of the discriminating social justice warrior. Their secession is good and righteous, whereas yours is just an expression of racism. You doody-head.]
Two days after Donald Trump was elected president of the United States, two Portlanders have submitted a petition for a 2018 ballot initiative to have Oregon secede from the United States.
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.”
