Harbingers of the forthcoming Civil War

Recommended Posts

I thought I would start a thread to document events that are precursors to the forthcoming Civil War in the West.

1st up Oregan Senators being hunted by the police because they are filibustering a Communist Climate Change Bill. One Senator told police that they should "send bachelors and come heavily armed" if they wanted to arrest him. Patriot groups have "besieged" the state building.

Democrats hold 18 of the 30 seats in the state senate, but 20 senators have to be present for a vote to take place.

On Thursday, the 11 Republicans who currently hold seats failed to show up for floor proceedings after negotiations broke down, blocking the legislation's progress.

Democratic Governor Kate Brown then authorised state police to try to locate them.

 

That seems very high handed of her.  Shouldn't they be holding a vote on it :D

That seems very authoritarian/dictatorial, perhaps they should have a referendum and ask the people of Oregon what they want rather than have a bunch of lying power crazed politicians doing what the hell they like.

They should follow the British model of democracy.  Ask people to vote on what they want to happen and then completely ignore them.
