Both Oregon and Washington have the same problem,

The Western side of the state population is predominately people that want to control what others do, (for the sake of the "children", the "environment" Or???) Sadly, they are in the majority.
The Eastern side of both states population is more conservative/liberty minded. We KNOW we are capable of making our own decisions and we understand what over regulation has done to our economy.
Yes, we have our work cut out for us----and we have some smart committed people working together from both sides of the state!
