A commenter over at Oregonlive (Kevin Starrett Op Ed) was gloating about the election successes they had in Oregon this past November. It went something like this: SecurityGuyAndy said this "FACT. Democrats control Oregon's government. They hold majorities in the legislature, in the county commissions of the 3 largest metro counties, Benton County, Lincoln County, Clatsop County, the cities of Portland, Beaverton, Oregon City, Corvallis, and Eugene, hold 4 of the 5 state elective offices, 4 of 5 congressional districts, and both US Senate seats. The writing is on the wall." What he said is true and I replied with this: "SGA doesn't lie. Many of you freedom lovers, live in districts owned by Antis. During election periods you throw up your hands and say what can I do, antis are running uncontested, I have no voice here. Guess what, there are districts elsewhere in the State that could have been won. If you live in a lost cause district, reach out to freedom loving candidates in closer race districts and help them out. There is no reason our State should have a Anti-Freedom Super Majority in both houses this year. Seriously, apathy is to blame for this demise of our freedoms that is likely to occur this year. We can turn things around in 2020 if we get off the couch and pay attention to candidates statewide. Until then, let the Dems in these close race districts know you are watching their votes and it will come back to haunt them in 2020. The 2020 election cycle has already started, don't be stingy with your support or before you know it Oregon will be a third world freedom SH like CA and WA." Back to Rep. Nearman's quote in the title of this thread. I think Rep. Nearman is absolutely correct that we need to start looking at the 2020 election cycle now. As I mentioned in my Oregonlive reply, we really need to support candidates statewide instead of the focusing strictly on the districts we live in. I have said this before and I will keep saying it, we need to reach out to freedom loving candidates in close race districts no matter where they are in our State. It doesn't have to be financial support, reach out to the candidates and see what kind of help they could use. We can turn the ship in 2020 if we rally around the candidates in the close race districts. Even if that means winning a couple of races to eliminate the super majority in one chamber.
