Well, that's the thing. Oregon is really more purple than blue. The more urban areas in Oregon, like Portland and Eugene, are really blue and their populations outnumber the rural areas of Oregon which tend to vote red. Even if the petition got enough signatures to make it on a ballot, it wouldn't be approved. Provided liberals have no interest in seceding.
I'm actually kind of torn on the issue. On the one hand, I would love to not have to deal with the psychotic tea party politicians from red states having a say on our laws. On the other hand, my immediate gut reaction to this is something along the lines of: CONSERVATIVE MELT DOWN!!!! RUN AWAY! That said, I don't think Oregon would survive on its own, so I'd probably vote no on it if it did make it to a ballot.
