Plain and simple. California has an amazing 33 page read about what a #Calexit would mean for them as a nation. If we are to be take seriously, we need to run this seriously. We need a Blue Book that can be digested easily, and clearly states what independence would mean for us. A committee should be set up, with Jennifer Rollins and Christian Trejbal who submitted the petition, where a true proposition can be laid out and shared with our neighbours to the North and South.
We must not run this as a partisan, leftist, campaign filled with buzzwords. Every Oregonian needs to have say in our decision. And every Oregonian has concerns that aren't being represented by TWO (nearly three) branches of the United States government.
We want independence because we are tired of the racial injustices and sexual inequalities in the United States.
We want independence because we are tired of stagnation in environmental protection and clean energy. To self-manage our lands.
Because our taxes should to go to our education, our forests, infrastructure, and not to war.
Because everyone in our borders deserves equality, life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
Together with California, Washington, Nevada, and whoever else wants in, we can make a difference in this world. Please, contact me if there is anything I can do to help.
