Josephine County May election on leaving Oregon


This weekly column features news stories and event announcements from around the American Redoubt region. (Idaho, Montana, eastern Oregon, eastern Washington, and Wyoming.) Much of the region is also more commonly known as The Inland Northwest. We also mention companies of interest to preppers and survivalists that are located in the American Redoubt region. Today, another look at the Greater Idaho project, which is up for votes today in two Oregon counties. (See the Region-Wide section.)

Many of the latter also lean toward conservative voting. It is gratifying to see that we are looking at a conservative “Red State” that is turning crimson red — that is, toward small government.
