Rob actually managed to get a day off from work, so he set about clearing out the archives. This episode was originally recorded in late November 2018.

In this episode of Half-Hour Liberty Hour, Brett and Rob discuss the results of the recent statewide election in Oregon and the local election in Portland (SPOILER ALERT: It went badly for liberty lovers). The guys discuss:

  • The reelection of "Corrupt Kate" Brown as governor
  • The Super-Majority now held by Democrats in the state government
  • OR Measure 102 Bonds for affordable housing
  • OR Measure 103: Ban on grocery and soda taxes
  • OR Measure 104: Change tax raising threshold from 3/5 to 2/3
  • OR Measure 105: Repeal of Oregon's Sanctuary State status
  • OR Measure 106: Banning public funds for abortion
  • Portland Measure 26-201: Gross revenues tax
  • The state of Oregon suing the President of the United States

It was almost as if the Dynamically Drunken Duo were looking into a crystal ball in this episode. Since the turn of 2019, the Oregon Democrat Super-Majority has completely gone off the rails. From new taxes, to massive unfunded mandates, to weak PERS reform, to the nation's first statewide rent control law, there is nothing to stop this out-of-control government. Oregon has set its path, possibly irreversibly, toward bankruptcy and economic collapse.
