Again, you are kind of missing the point but I am beginning to think it is deliberate. Portland has 60 % of the entire state population. It runs the show. You add in Eugene and it is 65 %. The entire Southern Oregon population barely hits 15 %.

One city, overwhelming a state, hardly makes the entire state liberal. Besieged maybe, taxed without representation, certainly. All of which is bad enough without people piling on on saying everyone is getting what they deserve for living in a liberal state.

The sad thing is it is simply hitting places like Oregon first. No state is immune to an over spending government going broke. Even Conservative ones. All those states will be looking to cut services and raise taxes. Is it going to matter that it was a conservative state then? Will that forestall the inevitable? Nope.

Don't break down meaningless stats, the fact is Oregon votes Democrat in most Presidential elections and is dominated by the Democrats on a national level.

The fact that there are conservative areas is irrelevant to that fact.

Oregon is a 'Blue' State.

Elect some conservatives and vote GOP in the Presidential race and then you can be considered a 'Red' State.

As for the issue of conservative states, it sounds like you are just ignoring your own State's responsibilities for the mess it is in.

No one is gloating over Oregon's problems, only recognizing that they are the inevitable result of liberal polices.

The only way a conservative state will become effected in the same way is if it has to bail out the liberal ones, such as Oregon, Calif and New York, while they continue doing what they always do, tax and spend.
