What I learned from the 2018 Oregon Midterm
Well, the midterm elections are over and here in Oregon we came away with some good things, some bad things, and some unexplainable craziness. This year we had a chance to get rid of our sanctuary status as a State, but you guessed it, the perpetually offended insane rioting class in Portlandia voted it down. Surely they would vote to end taxpayer funded murder of babies…nope, you must be able to murder babies and by golly, the taxpayers need to pay for it. Accountability must be avoided.
Oregonians have been voting No on sales taxes for over 35 years, but in this midterm, they voted to allow the State to tax FOOD. How insane is that; the ten new taxes passed by the Demonrats in the last year, adding up to over a billion dollars is not good enough, they can now tax FOOD. Did I mention that in the last couple of sessions, the Oregon legislature and Crazy Katherine have passed around 6 new business taxes along with a $15.00 an hour minimum wage that will have Oregon looking like Detroit when they all reach full enactment? Good times.
I have met many good Republicans around the State, but the State leadership for the GOP are a bunch of timid fellas who decided to get behind Knute-the-knot-head Bueller. Bueller is an arrogant know it all who decided to run as a Republican, but to campaign as a Demonrat. Pro-abortion, pro- special privileges for gays, lesbians and gender pretenders, anti-gun, anti-American, and as far as I can tell, hasn’t one principle in his whole makeup. Glad to see that the GOP at the State level is at least consistent…too afraid to take a stand, but at least perfectly willing to bend over and touch their toes.
I read a story the other day that said that the Oregon Governor race has come down to between 3-5 points every year for over 20 years…this year it wasn’t even close. Crazy Corrupt Kate gave Ferris Bueller a day off and didn’t even break a sweat. Hey GOP, its spelled P-R-I-N-C-I-P-L-E-S. You have to stand for something, kicking your base in the berries doesn’t work.
On a good note, Patriots in Oregon put the Second Amendment Preservation Ordinance on the ballot in 10 Counties and it passed in 8 of them. We already had SAPO’s in 5 counties and this is just the beginning. Our next venture is the Second Amendment Sanctuary Ordinance. The SAPO makes it illegal for counties to enforce unconstitutional gun laws written since 2012, and makes the Sheriff the go to guy to determine what laws are unconstitutional. Because people have complained that not all Sheriffs obey their Oath, the SASO will make it illegal for counties to enforce ANY gun laws period. We thank Michael Boldin and the Tenth Amendment Center for writing this law for us and for their guidance. Yes we are prepared for the tyrants and oath breakers to come out calling us extreme or radical, but we will remember to consider the source and that they live in opposite world every day.
