Either the greatest or worst state in the US, depending on your point of view. On one hand it's full of liberals and hippies and youth, dominating cities like Portland, Eugene, and Ashland. All the other cities are generally conservative (ie shit hole Salem)
I can only speak for the liberal part of Oregon (which is a bit of a bubble), which I have a love hate relationship with. Love because there's definitely a very special sort of Oreogn person (laid-back, adventurous, outdoorsy, artistic) that you can't find anywhere else. Hate because the racial hypocricracy. These people preach diversity and tolerance but then ignore all of the racial problems in Oregon and instead focus on the enviornment.
I think everyone who classifies themselves as the 'Oregon Liberal' should really take a hard look around them (the lack of diversity, ignorant racial comments) and focus some of their time and energy on racial problems that are rampid in Oregon!
What? why would you cross burnside bridge in portland, Oregon? its just gangsters over there...
