Oregon Secession Act
Whereas the People of Oregon prize life, liberty, equality, and the pursuit of happiness as unalienable rights of a free people;
Whereas many other American States do not share those values as shown by their electoral outcomes, laws, and public policies; Whereas irreconcilable differences exist between Oregon and many other American States;
Whereas the U.S. Congress no longer is capable of addressing issues important to Oregon and protecting the rights of free people;
Whereas the federal government has proved a poor steward and manager of public resources in Oregon;
Whereas governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed; Whereas in the course of human events, it sometimes becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands that have connected them with another; The People of Oregon therefore enact the following Oregon Secession Act:
Section 1 The Governor and Legislature shall actively pursue Oregon’s peaceful secession from the United State of America. They shall seek secession alone or in conjunction with other states and Canadian provinces that seek to form a new nation, including but not limited to California, Washington, Hawaii, Nevada, Alaska and British Columbia.
it goes on at considerable length......

I'll put in a good word for you, well most of you, when you apply for visas.
Oh, and from my friend Bruce:
