Maybe Oregon Will Secede Too

(Before It's News)

If sore loser moonbats get their way, California won’t be the only state to secede. Oregon will too:

Two days after Donald Trump was elected president of the United States, two Portlanders have submitted a petition for a 2018 ballot initiative to have Oregon secede from the United States.

On Thursday morning, Jennifer Rollins, a lawyer, and Christian Trejbal, a writer, filed the Oregon Secession Act.

“Oregonian values are no longer the values held by the rest of the United States,” Trejbal said over the phone Thursday.

Those values? “Life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness,” Trejbal said, “plus equality.”

There we have it: the reason moonbattery cannot be reconciled with Americanism. Equality before the law is an aspect of liberty. But liberals use the word “equality” to mean coercively imposed equality of outcome. This makes equality and liberty mutually exclusive.

As usual, Milton Friedman had it right:

On tips from Steve A, Bodhisattva, and StephaneDumas.
