Don't. Just don't 'Sell' Oregon.
Every year more people stream across Oregon borders to enjoy a culture they immediately start to dismantle.
I do not advocate closing our borders, but could we 'Educate' about Oregon instead of 'Selling' Oregon. Citizens of Oregon have made choices that have shaped our government and our culture. We have not viewed our government as some foreign enemy, out to get us, but as a tool to build a better place to live. We have used our government to create a vibrant culture that supports diversity and restricts monopoly.
Too many new Oregonians bring with them ideas and actions that will dismantle and disfigure the very things they value about their new home.
Education of our newer Oregonians might slow this process.
