      Correction: Oregon is the Rainiest state on the west coast & Portland Is the capital of SJW and Hipster culture (I mean we're the Only city covered on CNN that legitimately riot over president trump (by riot I mean we trashed coffee shops, broke windows and flipped over ford focuses, while NY & atlanta just marched through Highways)).

      But hey, we have the McMenamins.

    You say a Wyoming voter has over 3x the amount of voting power as a California voter, but we all know that anyone who tries to move there to claim that voting power isn't going to do anything to change the state's predisposition for voting for Republicans.
