Thoughts from a half-black, bleeding-heart, right-leaning, recently converted liberal.

Karl Rove & Northwest Red States

I've been doing a bit of homework on the recent voting history of Oregon, specifically. The optimist in my is working overtime with this crazy goal. Hey, things seemed impossible when this country was founded. Let's see what liberty-minded folks can pull off in the PNW.

Victoria, you are almost there! Replacing politicians on a regular basis is a prerequisite for sanity.

Victoria, one truth is that when you're young, you have no heart if you're not liberal and when you are older with responsibilities, if you're not conservative, you have no brain. But there are always exceptions and you are a shining example.

Honey, I've been voting for 30 years and most of that experience has been as an outnumbered republican living on the west coast.

The liberal mindset is completely entrenched but I can tell you one thing is for certain, this country is teetering financially and the 'changes' that have been foisted upon the American people by the current administration have not even begun to be felt, let alone fully contemplated.

The romantic notions of the far left will only fall with the advent of a harsh reality. They already carry the load of the current ideas of the democrats, so to my mind, the west will feel the pain of what is to come before the rest of the country.

I don't wish it on anyone, but the fallout is going to be hard and harsh. I think that they're actually going to have to hold the tax bills in their hands before they get that the utopia that they dreamed about is a pipedream.

At that point, you won't have to sell conservative principles. That would sort of be like selling life preservers on a sinking boat.

Good luck on your personal journey. I, too, am a person that bucked the system that I was surrounded by and as I teach my children, I am a conservative by choice. You have a unique viewpoint. Don't sweat being outnumbered. Where else could you get such an education about how liberal policies in action do not work in the real world?
