poorly conceived[edit]

I believe the tone of this page should be entirely different. I don't think the article should be centered around the notion of whether Oregon is more "Blue" or "Red," or more "conservative" or "liberal," or whatever - that would just be an invitation to endless pointless debates. Rather, it should be an overview of the issues that dominate Oregon political discourse: land use, education funding, "independent spirit," environmental stewardship, death with dignity, OCA, … And maybe also include a FEW notable political figures whose influence has transcended their office (maybe Morse, McCall, Goldschmidt. Certainly no more than one per decade.) Thoughts? -Pete 06:20, 10 March 2007 (UTC)

Is it just me...[edit]

...or is there an unusually strong presence of anti-Semitism in Oregon? Radio station KOHI-AM airs an anti-Semitic radio show (The Political Cesspool), while there is also the Pacifica Forum and Ted Pike's National Prayer Network. I dunno, maybe I'm just imagining it.

KOHI has discontinued The Political Cesspool since I wrote my last comment, but my point still stands. Stonemason89 (talk) 20:40, 14 March 2010 (UTC)
Now KOHI is broadcasting Cesspool again... Stonemason89 (talk) 18:14, 14 September 2010 (UTC)
And looks like Mark Weber is from Oregon, too. Creepy, even if it is just a coincidence. Stonemason89 (talk) 20:14, 24 October 2010 (UTC)
Oregon has a racist history. http://bluebook.state.or.us/cultural/history/history19.htm. And it was written into our constitution that blacks werent allowed here. Since it was admitted as a pre civil war free state. More chinese hate http://archive.vancouver.wsu.edu/crbeha/ca/ca.htm PortlandOregon97217 (talk) 06:28, 17 November 2012 (UTC)
