'Proud Conservative' bumper stickerA pro-family activist is not surprised that rural counties in neighboring left-wing-controlled states want to break away and become part of Idaho.

Idaho legislators in a recent meeting welcomed the Citizens for Greater Idaho's proposal to move the Oregon/Idaho border to bring rural Oregon counties under Idaho's jurisdiction. The plan would also include an area of northernmost California. Meanwhile, the group Move Oregon's Border has collected signatures in more than a half-dozen counties for a ballot initiative possibly this year.

Bryan Fischer, former executive director of the Idaho Values Alliance, is not surprised that such a move is in the works.

"Idaho is what all of America used to be," he says. "The values that formed and shaped America are still at a premium in The Gem State, so this interest doesn't surprise me at all."

Fischer also points out that Idaho is the least regulated state in the U.S.

Bryan Fischer"The legislature is determined to keep it that way," he continues. "So that means this proposal is going to be very attractive to every businessman and every citizen in southern Oregon [and] northern California and very attractive to every America who loves freedom."

And Fischer says these groups should not be daunted by the inevitable resistance from the liberal state governments in Oregon and California.

"You never know … if you can do it until you try," he adds. "I believe these people love freedom. They want to live in a place where freedom is honored and protected, and Idaho is that place."
