So the old saying is that history repeats itself and that is indeed true as Oregon legislative Democrats who control both houses are about to over reach once again.
In the words of Yogi Berra, "It's deja vu all over again".
Back in 2009, Democrats in control of the legislature over reached on a number of policy issues that created a backlash against them in 2010, allowing Republicans to win enough seats to stop their radical agenda. In fact, the movement was so strong and surprising, that Oregon nearly elected a NBA player with no political experience as Governor.
Fast forward to today and the same thing seems to be hapenning again, but with greater intensity. The background check gun bill is only one of many offensive policies that Democrats are advancing, including a $15 minimum wage, multiple anti business bills and rewarding their campaign funders from unions, enviromentalists and trial lawyers with favorable legislation.
Liberty is under assault here and in a big way.
The question is this: can history repeat itself in the 2016 elections as it did in 2010?
Oregon is a funny place politically sometimes and past performance is no indicator of future results. In 2014, Oregon moved further to the left, while the rest of the nation moved right. Back in 2010, we joined the rest of the nation by moving right, likely a result of ObamaCare's passage and other bad ideas that Congressional Democrats enacted.
