>tfw watching a documentary about Oregon Ballot measure 9
The parallels in rhetoric from then and today are some of the scariest things I've ever seen. Makes me terrified at what could come next.

for those of you who dont know

Lolling at the word 'monies'.

This is actually kind of unsurprising. Oregon used to have a law that forbade black people from moving there. The reputation it got from hipstertown covers the racism about as well as a white sheet hides a drag racing car in the living room

If you've never lived in Oregon, it's the West Coast equivalent to Maine. It's locked in a time warp due to much of their legal actions over the past half century. Other than the largest cities like Portland, it's rural and locked down to prevent California style development.

Attitudes such as those backed by the authors of this ballot measure represent a lot of the rural mindset. They're as sick and tired of people from New York and California moving in and trying to change things.

Oh buddy you don't know much about the demos in Oregon. Oregon is like the Texas of the west coast, one or two cool liberal cities, and then it's just a backwater redneck wasteland. If I had a dollar for every time I've heard an old white guy talk about "the niggers" while out drinking I could probably fill my gas tank.

Those one or two cities have the population to make the state go Democratic consistently. Assuming voter patterns stay the same that means such a thing has little chance of passing.

They only really swing blue in generals. A lot of our state/municipal government is deeply conservative. That's why we have some of the most lax open carry laws in the country.

Yeah, while the exact same bill was passed in Colorado.

It's not more so must gays and lesbian rights, as much as just the exact same kind of rhetoric that was used to promote this bill is used to elect trump. Made up statistics and facts that they made the public believe. Like it's fucking scary, at one point there was a clip of one of the OCA conferences, and the dude was saying like 28% of gays participate in "scating", and like 12% were pedophiles, just ridiculous.stuff, and they believed it. Trumps been doing the same shit and it this time it got him elected. I guess just the power of misinformation scares the shit out of me.

>Those one or two cities have the population to make the state go Democratic consistently.

Portland is pretty much ~the~ city of Oregon.

Oregon has a little under 4 million people. Portland city itself has just shy of 600,000. The next 5 largest cities in Oregon cover a spread 150-90k people each, 4 of the 5 are within 40 miles of Portland anyway. The adjacent cities added in (the light rail transit system connects them literally anyways) the IMMEDIATE Portland greater boasts over 1 million people in major city limits, with the whole of its sprawl 2.2 million.

More than 25% of the state's population is in immediate greater portland and 2/3 of the state's population lives in the actual, statistical Portland Greater Metro sprawl.

Portland's economic megaregion spills well over into its neighboring states. Without Portland, your two closest metropolitan and international commerce centers are going to be SanFran, CA and Seattle, WA.

I'd say Portland looks pretty ideal to having either of those two being your 'connection to the rest of the world' from oregon.

I don't know, that depends on what the people want.

And by "the people" I mean, those who have been citizens for a significant length of time, perhaps their entire lives.

>Portland is pretty much ~the~ city of Oregon.


Yes but 81% of the population in the state is "urban", which often means "liberal". Which seems to be supported by the apparent Democratic domination of the state, having a majority in the state government and holding almost all the federal positions.

Technically, his party was elected as a majority. He just takes the face. In any case, he's still not going to last more than 4 years because he fucked up, re: Electoral Reform.

Also wasn't the exact quote, but the exact quote isn't much better.

In any case, not only did I not vote for his party, but he isn't doing what Hitler Harper did towards the end of that goofball of a term.

Actually, looking closer, I can't find any verifiable sources for a quote even related to that. Thought I had one, but it turned out to be a faked screenshot.

I mean, he's still a bit of a derp, but at least he's got a political background and has some semblance of knowledge on what he and his party are doing, even if it's disappointingly not what he said he would.

Trudeau's background is largely not terrible at all. He's received criticism on being vague, but that's about it.

My biggest problem is literally that the guy has been quoted saying that he "turned his back on electoral reform," which is a shitty thing to have done when his party literally won off that promise.

He still has nothing on the idiocy happening in the Burnt House, though.

Maybe. But that's a big maybe.

Allowing a club isn't facilitating or encouraging anything as long as the school doesn't endorse it.

Ideally such a thing is such a non-issue that stuff like the GSA is unnecessary to begin with.
