Conservatives are continually throwing tantrums when they don't get their way, and one of the main forms which these tantrums take is talk of secession, from the formation of the Confederate States of America to the Texit. Last week, there were votes in Oregon counties to secede from the 'too liberal' state and join with Idaho to form a Greater Idaho, incorporating parts of California as well. Rural Republican Oregonians just can't deal with the fact that they are outnumbered by liberal residents of the Portland metropolitan area, so they want out. This is all part of a right-wing white-nationalist American Redoubt movement which seeks to form an all-white ethnostate in the northwest, centered on Idaho, Wyoming, and Montana. Any secession attempt necessitating votes from the state legislatures and Congress, these efforts are doomed to failure, but somebody has got to be looking to make bank on deplorables' discontent.
To make matters even stupider, nutjob Ammon Bundy wants to be the Maharaja of MAGAstan, and, while not even eligible to do so, filed to run in the Idaho gubernatorial race, which is almost certainly s grift. I can just see his slogan 'Make Greater Idaho Great Again'.

Get out of the state you're in, indeed.
