A couple of southern coastal counties are also seeking a break with Oregon, which is overwhelmingly controlled by radical leftists in the Portland metro area.
California's northern counties have begged to join the Greater Idaho movement, as well. The initiative, if successful; will more than double the size of Idaho.
Politically, it calls on the leftists in control to show the same deference which 'liberals' have historically demonstrated for self determination, such as the Autonomous zones in the state capitols, over the past year.
Amnesty International is also being called upon to support the rights of self-determination of the people.
In the past, Amnesty International has mostly supported Marxist initiatives for breakaway govt.

Where could this go? Might Nevada's northern counties join the move, to get away from the control of Las Vegas? Perhaps so. Then Idaho might decide to split off the newly acquired areas into a new state, with a capitol in southern Oregon. It would create a new state to the union with a natural political base closer to the current Republican ideology. And all 3 states that these counties come from, have been voting solidly Democrat, in the past 15 years.
