Update: 4/4/2020: Facebook Livestream today 2:00PM PST.

(The livestream will be permanent on Facebook but we’ll also post it on this web page under NEWSFEED no later than Monday morning.)

Regarding the Oregon Republican Party state organization.   For us, we’re done battling that tiny contingent. (You can read the sordid history of the State ORP under the tab NEWSFEED, above. You can also download my book from this page).  So, Diana and I are DONE, but if a grassroots leader, for instance a County Chair, has the courage to step up to take over the fight, we have a gigantic database of Oregon grassroots Republicans. (Because of how the last State Central Committee was conducted, back on March 21st,  we have the perfect opportunity, both legally and within the Party Bylaws,  to finally change the leadership in the organization. It would be relatively simple and easy. Click on the link at the beginning of this paragraph for details about that SCC meeting.)

But right now, in this COVID-19 moment, Diana and I are just like you, concerned with personal affairs and family efficacy. In the meantime, although a bit dated, THIS is the best COVID-19 overview we’ve found.

Now let’s talk about MOGA2020.

We’re the largest and most trusted online political media source in Oregon. We’re Republicans but we stand for President Trump-supporting, limited-government grassroots voters of all political persuasions.

And if you are an Oregon Republican, note that numerous scientific polls consistently show that 95% of our voter base supports our president.

The opposition? Let’s call them the “Ruling Class.” I’ll talk about them in a minute.

I’m Sam Carpenter and my wife Diana and I are regular everyday people just like you. There are already 100,000 Oregonians on-board our Make Oregon Great Again 2020 train. There is incredible power in our numbers!

Who am I? I’m a past Oregon US Senate and gubernatorial primary election candidate and the only Oregon political figure to ever publicly endorse Donald Trump (via a press release in my 2016 US Senate campaign). However, I am not running for office in 2020 and for this election cycle I’m a political blogger/commentator. Here’s more about me. Diana is also all-in on Donald Trump and has worked alongside me in our effort to help return our state back to regular Oregonians.

Of course, there is no longer any question about the intentions of the irrational Democrat progressive Left. Their singular quest is for power. They don’t care about you and me and to add insult to injury, they don’t respect us either.

But is there a silver lining?

Yes! This deep-state arrogance opens up the door to a very special political pathway in 2020 and it hinges on joining forces and working together. The Democrat impeachment boondoggle, the booming economy, and a seriously flawed Democrat nominee insure a Donald Trump victory in November. And with this, regular Oregonians like us have an opportunity to finally take back our state.

Yes, YOU can help, and it’s a very simple thing. Stay with me here…


What is MOGA2020?
MOGA2020 stands for “Make Oregon Great Again in 2020.” We’re the Oregon Grassroots…or you can call us the Oregon Country Class.***

Traditional Democrats? They’ve been steam-rolled leftward. To say, “this isn’t the party of JFK or even Bill Clinton” is a laughable understatement. And within the Oregon Democratic ranks there are a significant number of “quiet” Donald Trump supporters who have had more than enough of the virtue-signaling yapping hyenas who constitute their leadership. These are MOGA2020 subscribers, too.

Independents, Libertarians and the non-affiliated? You’ve seen the polls. The majority are frustrated with Oregon’s blue-state swamp, and like the rest of us they support our president and prefer a government that serves them rather than the other way around. They also subscribe to MOGA2020.

It really is the end of the Democrat Party as we’ve known it. Democrat Progressives have nowhere else to go in 2020 and in their frenzied befuddlement they await next November’s electoral chopping block, hoping the COVID-19 emergency will somehow topple Donald Trump’s presidency. Nonsense.

In Oregon, it’s OUR turn! We are NOT going to miss this opportunity!

MOGA2020 is the rallying point for taking back Oregon after over thirty years of horrible Democrat progressive mismanagement. The iron is hot and it’s time to return Oregon to political sanity NOW.

The legacy of the Oregon grassroots
Since the early eighties, working people and small business owners like us, of all political persuasions, both in cities and in rural regions, have been ignored by the Willamette Valley and Portland-based Democrat and Republican political and media elite.

These elites are the Ruling Class.

And who belongs to the Oregon Ruling Class?
It’s a distinct minority, headed up by Democrat progressives, perhaps 50% of all Democrats. These are the people who support our current Salem leadership.

I’ll say it diplomatically. These are unreasonable people.

This Democrat progressive Ruling Class contingent is powered by a deranged hatred, not just for our president but for you and me. You know it’s true.

Also included in the Ruling Class are Republican “never-Trumpers,” perhaps 5% of Oregon Republicans who, unwittingly and wittingly, keep those Democrat progressives in power. You guessed it: never-Trumpers are also unreasonable people. And right now they control the powerless state-level Oregon Republican Party which, as you’ll see, has miniscule support within our 704,000 Republican voting base.

Yet the majority of Oregon Republican county party organizations support Donald Trump and are powerfully self-directed.

For way too long, this Democrat and Republican Ruling Class minority has been calling the shots for you and me. And of course their motivation is to hold on to power and not prioritize what’s best for regular everyday county-class people like us: Oregonians who work jobs, run businesses, pay taxes, raise children, negotiate retirement, compose our military and police…and, deep down, make Oregon and America work.

Sam and Diana Carpenter

There will be Trump coattails this November!
Regular Republican voters like you are ON FIRE and have had a bellyful of the progressive Left. Evidence? Republicans are competing in 90% of Oregon House races in 2020. (In 2018 it was only 75%). And nationally, look at Donald Trump’s accomplishments…and consider the viability of his (probable) Democrat Opponent, Joe Biden. Know for sure that on November 3rd, all across America, there will be a Democrat defeat of biblical proportions. And also know for sure the momentum will sweep through Oregon.

See the NEWSROOM tab on this page to see our latest MOGA2020 posts, and also here on this website download my book, Making Oregon Great Again: Guide to the Grassroots Revitalization of the Oregon Republican Party (and the Defeat of the Ruling Class).

The power of MOGA2020’s Facebook voter-engagement .
In 2020, Facebook is the one-on-one premier media communication platform for voters.

The Oregon Republican Party’s voter engagement? The ORP does not reach even 1% of oregon Republican voters. The following isn’t speculation. It’s statistical. Whether one likes it or not, in 2020 Facebook is the gold-standard for reaching voters. Our Facebook page is Making Reality Great Again. See below for a comparison of Page Likes and Page engagements to the other primary political sites in the state. This latest report is for the week of March 7th through the 15th:

Regarding the above, keep in mind that the huge majority of Kate Brown’s reader-engagement revolves around complaints about her leadership. And note that even Second Congressional District candidate Knute Buehler has more voter engagement than than the statewide Oregon Republican Party….

In any case, each week, MOGA2020 reaches hundreds of thousands of regular Oregonians just like you. With our daily updates, candidate endorsements, and no-holds-barred reporting, powered by our world-class full-time social media team of five, we are able to break the latest news, affect opinion, create group-momentum, and up-end the Ruling Class status quo.

Will you help us?
Yes you CAN help but – and this may seem odd – we’re specifically asking you to not send us money. We only ask you to take three simple (but incredibly crucial) actions…

  1.  join the mailing list on this web site, and then…
  2. tell your friends and family about MOGA2020, then…
  3. “Like” our Facebook Page, Making Reality Great Again.

MOGA2020’s impact is directly proportional to our total number of subscribers. Help us reach as many of your neighboring Oregonians as possible! 

THIS is how we take back our state! We band together! We break-on-through!

Join the MOGA2020 movement today and we’ll keep you informed with frequent updates and live-stream events that will be informative and often, way more fun than you would expect! 

And for the comprehensive inside-story, download my book for free.
Published in January 2019, my book, Making Oregon Great Again: Guide to the Grassroots Revitalization of the Oregon Republican Party (and the Defeat of the Ruling Class) lists the political myths we Oregonians must discard. And in a real-time true story, it chronicles how the nefarious 2018 Oregon gubernatorial Republican primary campaign unfolded. For grassroots candidates, it’s a wide-open expose’ of what to do and what not to do when running for office. For everyone else, it’s an eye-opener on how inside politics works here in Oregon…and in pretty much every other “blue” state.
