Oregon Democrats Ban Republicans from Running for Office – Democracy Saved

Oregon State Capitol building in Salem, Oregon

Phew! That was a close one! Democracy has been saved the state of Oregon in next year’s elections. Voters in Eastern Oregon were very nearly able to vote for the candidates of their choice in the State Senate next year, which would have been a catastrophe. Fortunately, billionaire Michael Bloomberg and others stepped in and have prevented the voters from having their candidates of choice on the ballot. Almost every one of Oregon’s Senate Republicans are banned from running again. Democracy is saved!

Senate Republicans in Oregon have a rough time. There are only 12 of them compared to the Democrat majority of 17. One Independent caucuses with the Republicans. There’s no hope of upsetting that margin because the Democrats occupy the western half of the state and Portland, where all the population in Oregon resides.

One of the insane bills that the Democrats were pushing last year would allow children as young as 14 to obtain an abortion without parental consent. The Democrats were also pushing a bill that would impose some of the most draconian gun restrictions in the country, including raising the age to lawfully purchase a firearm from 18 to 21.

Since Republicans couldn’t stop these lunatic bills from passing, they did the only other thing they could do: Ten of them walked out and prevented a quorum in the Senate. The walkout started in May of this year and lasted 42 days. It was perfectly legal under Oregon state law, and it worked.

Democrats struck back at this democracy in action by pushing something called Measure 13. Michael Bloomberg and other wealthy Democrats ponied up more than $2.5 million for a publicity campaign for the measure, which would ban people from running for reelection in Oregon if they have too many “unexcused absences” in a legislative session. Naturally, Democrats are the ones who decide what is unexcused, and they made it retroactive to cover the 10 people who walked out in 2022.

 

Democrat voters in Portland easily swamped the ballot box this year and Measure 113 is now law. As a result, the nine Republicans and one Independent Senator are now banned from running for reelection in 2024. 83% of Oregon’s Republican Senate caucus is not allowed to run for reelection next year, despite enjoying overwhelming support from their own voters for protecting children from abortion and protecting gun rights.

That’s how “democracy” works when Democrats have full hegemonic control of a legislature. You don’t get to vote for the candidate of your choice if Democrats object to that candidate. It’s pretty much what they’re trying to do with all these silly lawsuits to keep President Donald Trump off the ballot next year.

Naturally, Democrats treat this situation the exact opposite when they’re in the majority. When the minority Democrats in Texas staged a 38-day walkout in 2021 to protest election reform bills, they were hailed as champions of democracy by the fake news media. They were flown to Washington, DC, so that Democrats in Congress could hail them as heroes.

“These folks are going to be remembered on the right side of history,” gushed Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY). “The governor and the Republican legislators will be remembered on the dark and wrong side of history.”

Hey, Chuck, before you lecture the rest of us on morality, you might want to hose the tables in that Senate hearing room down with bleach, after that aide for Sen. Ben Cardin (D-MD) filmed a nasty gay anal porn video in there the other day.

What’s happening in Oregon is what “democracy” looks like when it is separated from constitutional protections, fair elections and even-handed laws. You used to be able to trust Democrats to apply the rules evenly to both sides, but those days are long gone. Republicans in Oregon are now living through the exact reason why the Founding Fathers warned us against majoritarian democracy.

When “democracy” reaches the point where it has enough leverage in a state, it now means that the political opposition can be banned. By preventing ten incumbents from running for reelection next year, how is that any different from that little tinhorn dictator in Ukraine canceling elections and banning opposition parties? The short answer is that it’s not any different at all.

  1. Is our Nation becoming a dictatorship? It seems, those with money, have gained the power and are influencing our True Democracy. Since when are American Citizens restricted on who they can vote for. THIRD WORLD TACTICS are being practiced by our own. Could it be, they wish to conquer and rules?

        1. Close, but there is a minor difference. Around 1930 germany had about 10 political parties of about equal strength. The national socialists used bully boy force with clubs to keep other party voters away from the polls. So in the early 1930s Nazis won by having twice as many votes as any other party. Then when they had a little power they really went to town and established the NAZIs as the only effective party. members of other parties were subjected to harrasment, violence, extermination, etc. And then Germany started acquiring some breathing room by invasion. What we have is a two party setup in the USA and that has been sorely abused. congress does NOT have to talk to the opposition minority party if they have more than 51% of the vote. My partial solution would be to have at least 4 parties and have procedures that allow the extreme minority parties more than equal standing on committee’s. while my thoght need fleshing out, i see another alternative in requiring passage of a bill to be raised from 51% to 70% and other rules for voting to be raised. Nowhere in the constitution does it say that congressmen should have an easy time passing a bill. i would like bills passed only if they mostly agree it’s good. the basic requirement for congress is to pass a balanced budget. When was the last ONE?

        1. God will intervene an set the Democrats straight, soon there will be 3days of darkness where everyone will see there soul as god sees it, God is made about the abortions , you Democrats have blood on your hands

    1. It is ahainst the Constitution and the Laws of this country to restrict voting based on sex, creed religion od political beliefs. If Oregon continues with this madness then all federal money must be pulled fron Oregon. Who do they think they are. The US fought Hitler and his scientists st nazis. Is Oregon saluting Nazi-ism. Poor show for an entire staye.

      1. 1979 the first year there were more California transplants in Oregon then native Oregonians 1980 the last Republican Governor. The Democrats controlled the Congress and senate. The state is just like California we need a border wall around California keep the people from moving and ruining every state they move to. So far California Transplants have ruined Oregon Washington Colorado and Arizona and are working on Texas Austin is in complete California transplants control. Totally In Democrats control. The American communist party formally the Democrats

    2. The socialists democratic party need to be DISBANDED FROM HOLDING OFFICE ! There are NO FAIR ELECTIONS ! ONLY the RICH DESTROYING THE WORLD and AMERICA ! They are the percentage of the population that needs to GO ! They still what they want and take everything and most have never lifted a hammer or Don a days hard work ! INHERITANCE FROM THOSE WHO DID WORK ! The nut jobs need to be stripped of power …If money does this to them examples (Gates /Obama/the entire democratic party and Opera and 80% of Hollywood and all off the UN ! ) We need coman since no more FBI /IRS/DOJ All have failed AMERICA We need JUSTICE We need the CONSTITUTION TO BE FALLOWED ……these city’s of fake people need to WAKE UP !!!! the democratic party are lieing to YOU ….. We the people who want truth and liberty and not PROPAGANDA NEWS OWNED BY THE RICH LEFT AND WOK CRIMINALS !!!! we AMERICANS have had enough….. unfortunately you people on the left only destroy cause diversion and death ! Without the right you will ALL STARVE TO DEATH ……. WAKE UP ! TIME Isn’t on your side anymore We are awake and you are about to get what you are giving out ….wake up

      1. “Ask not what ROME can do for you, but, ask, what you can do for Rome!” Cicero the OLD ROMEN SENATOR!

        “Ask not WHAT your country can do for you. But, ask, what you can do for your COUNTRY?” JFK

        What are our current POLITICANS SEEKING & what have they done for the BETTERMENT OF OUR NATION, while their famillies’ INCOMES ARE…..?

    3. It is not just a wish, they are doing it because not many have the guts to stand up for what our constitutional law says. What they have done is not only against constitutional law, but freedom of choice and speech. I think the entire state should be removed from being part of the United States and those that did this not allowed to vote in ANY federal elections at all, after all what is right for the goose is right for the gander so if they are not going to follow the constitutional laws and let a rich mad man dictate that no one that is not a demonrat run for office, then they have NO RIGHT to vote in the Federal elections and their statehood needs to be revoked.

      1. kinda agree but think it would be better to split up several states. Both oregon and WA should be split on a east west line. CA having 55 electoral votes badly needs splitting up. The big centers having attracted urbanites from other states should split with san fran and LA being in the same state. we should have north of san fran, east of san fran and LA as a seperate state and San diego county and east as a seperate state. Constitution requires parent state permission but when political beliefs trample the population things need to change. i know i do not agree with a waitress serving a jail sentance for giving an undemanded plastic straw to a customer.

    4. The United States is a republic, not a democracy. However, in a true democracy everyone has an equal say whether another likes it or not. Does that sound like something that is occurring in this country ??

    5. the state boarders the ocean take them out and feed the sharks with them just hope it does not make the sharks sick

  2. Democrats in America today are not Democrats,but some hardcore Communists supported by Evil wealthy crooks.The goal is too destroy our Republic and install a Dictatorship where people have no say.This dismantling began with the “forced” 2008 election where the race cards got played big time and people fell for their trick and elected a n illegally entered Muslim Anti American who began the dismantling and destruction of America on Jan.20,2009.The sheeple has voted for Democrats over and over and their states and cities are destroyed

    1. The minorities are the ones that will get screwed no way I’ll ever be effective cause we are 100% republican were I am we kick ass this year .And Oregon who cares will not be anything left to control.

  3. I just got paid 7268 Dollars Working off my Laptop this month. And if you think that’s cool, My Divorced friend has twin toddlers and(Q) made 0ver $ 13892 her first m0nth. It feels so good making so much money when other people have to work for so much less.
    This is what I do………> > > https://financesolution467.blogspot.com/

  4. It would be well to remember the saying “To know who controls you simply look at who you cannot criticize.” If you cannot figure out who controls you I suggest you have your head in the sand.

  5. Here we go again! Democrats can do what ever they want to keep republicans out of office. Why is it ok for them and not republicans? Things have a way of back firing on democrats and there illegal stunts. This unconstitutional in any shape and form. This is truly voter suppression.

  6. The democrats have been working very hard to cover up their lies and schemes. Their true intentions are to change our country into a Communist Nation and take away all of our freedom. They have already begun to try to erase the history of our country. The history that tells the story of how our families , our ancestors, fought and died on the lands of our country to give us the freedom that being and AMERICAN entitles us to!!! The democrats love being slave owners . Their goal is to be in complete control and denying us our freedom that our country was built on.

    1. democrat party has been taken over by the “democratic socialists of america”. This has been their goal since 1960. we outlawed the socialist party around then, they regrouped and infiltrated the democrats with the help of democrats who love corrupt payola.

  7. Talk about your basic, flagrant election interference. But it’s only interference when it’s by Republicans. Where is the states governor, attorney general or the elections commission?

  8. Socialist communist dumbocrats are still at it. They have told you over and over that they want to control and destroy America. So the sheep dumb ass people who cannot see this is so blinded by all the woke fake news that is put our by the news stations, bollywood actors that they cannot think for them self’s. the communist dumbocrats are destroying American by removing American history because they don’t like it. None of us was around when this happened, so we cannot change it, only destroy it. Wake up you sorry woke people or you will be told how, where, when, what to do. Freedom will no longer exist in American.

  9. And Democrats call the GOP the threat to Democracy, the real threat seems to be minor blue strongholds in states like Oregon. Making a law retro-active is also not normal in a democracy, usually done by tyrants to oust any “un-wanteds” from the government. Just look how the Democrats act when they have a majority and are not afraid of losing it! That is what most normal people would call corruption, there are not many normal Americans in Oregon or CA or NY. The blue disease is spreading and the cases are getting worse.

  10. This is part of the reason half the State of Oregon wants to either become a new State (…the State of Jefferson…) . . . or become part of Idaho!!!

  11. …and why do these idiots continue to call America a “Democracy” when IT IS NOT A DEMOCRACY . . . America is a Democratic Republic!!!

  12. Why do these idiots keep calling America a “Democracy” . . . IT IS NOT A DEMOCRACY, America is a Democratic Republic!!!

  13. I would move out of that state as soon as I could. What Democrats are doing is not Democracy it’s SOCIALISM AND ITS IDIOTIC.

  14. Time to use the 2nd amendment to protect the first amendment
    Look out workers we are coming to a city near you!!!

  15. It’s against the law for one political party to attempt to ban another from running for positions in American elections. Oregon and the Democrats will be sued.

  16. If they do that, the people in that state should Sue the democratic party and let it be known they will write in the name of the person they want to vote for but they need to start lawsuit now. The republicans need to hire high-profile people to be at devoting venues in each state. That is trying to do something like this. Because again they will steal the race and I don’t want another 4 years of Biden and his b******* with a vice President that can’t even find her head from her ass

  17. Gee, the same party that disenfranchised millions of their own voters in Florida by cancelling their own parties primaries for a dementia ridden government usurping sock puppet allowed that to happen? Why? Oh yeah…”democracy”. Gee maybe the Republican Party should do that in Texas and make it retroactive. What’s good for the goose is good for the gander correct.

  18. THESE WOKEASS SCUMBAGS SHOULD BE REMOVED FROM OFFICE AND COUNTRY. WHO IN THE HELL DO THEY THINK THEY ARE SAYIND REPUBLICANS CAN NOT RUN FOR OFFICE. THIS BULLSHIT NEEDS TO STOP AND THESE WOKEASS IDIOTS PUT IN THIER PLACE. FJB

  19. I just got paid 7268 Dollars Working off my Laptop this month. And if you think that’s cool, My Divorced friend has twin toddlers and made 0ver $ 13892 her first m0nth. It feels so good making so much money when other people have to work for so vb-02 much less.
    This is what I do……………..> > >

  21. This is the same state with drug addicts living on the streets. I recently saw a posting of a street must be 100 + people laying passed out, looking out for aliens, just wasted out of their minds. They must be proud because they messed up Oregon as much as Newson messed up California

  22. TEXAS NEEDS TO DO THE SAME THING TO THE DEMONRATS WHO WALKED OUT. REPUBLICANS NEED TO PULL THE SAME SHIT ON THE DEMONRATS THAT THEY USE ON THEM.

  23. Is this America? It’s not the one I grew up in! Banning the opposition from running seemed impossible in the past but when Democrats make and own the justice system we get this kind of leadership. The senate should ban any state that implements such laws within their state, from participating in any national election until what they are trying is corrected. The senate should cut any and all government funding to that state!

  24. If you want the Democrats to take over everything so the country is destroyed then let them stop you from voting for who you want, but I think I would start protesting against them from taking away my rights to vote for who I want if they have a party or not

  25. This is simply NOT TRUE! No way can this be done without the State of Oregon leaving – secede from the nation – as was done during the Civil War. That takes time and it also takes a majority of State Citizens. This is more BS offered by “blowhards”!

    1. The democrats are Satan’s playthings. He doesn’t care about YOU, he just cares about the damage you Democrats are doing to our country. That sounds a lot like the Democrats don’t care about the illegals, they just want their votes.

  26. Isn’t that unconstitutional? They want a Marxist society. The people who are organizing this unconstitutional move need to be in prison!

  27. Just the beginning. Democrats are going to make it illegal to vote for any republicans ever again. If you don’t mark your ballot as they choose it will probably get you killed. This isn’t a game. You will obey or die. Welcome to the new America were illegals are going to become our police and military for democrats. Better decide before 2024 if you tow the democrats line or goodbye.

  28. My Father fought the NAZI’S in WWII flying both the Boeing B-17 Super Fortress, and the Boeing B-29 Bomber, in both the Pacific Theater and Europe!!! In 1973 my Father told me this! Son, the NAZIS will come back because they exist in every level of Society, and they are the Scum of the Earth!!! Today, January 4, 2024, Daddy, you were Right on Target in reference to the NAZI’s!!! These Monsters are the SCUM of the Earth!!!
