  •  The "lack of clear distinction", is because in (5+ / 0-)

    the past there was little real distinction between Republicans and Democrats in NC.  Even under Republican Governors, there was always a Democratic legislature to keep things on an even keel.

    I think a lot of people thought that putting a bunch of Republicans in charge would be business as usual.  What they didn't realize is that they put the tea party and Art Pope in charge.  

    Their latest, is "finance reform", aka give to the rich, and corporations, and take away from the middle class and poor.

    Personally, I think we will be lucky if they don't bankrupt the state.

    In the time it took Adam Lanza to reload, eleven children escaped. What if...

      I mean it's one thing to bankrupt the nation - that fits their MO of national sabotage - state's rights and whatnot... but to shit right where they eat?

      Up around the Great Lakes it's happening too. But I see a nifty angle there - Bankrupt the people and get the water for cheap - sell the rest at firesale prices. Think neo-colonialism instead of neo-feudalism.

      I did not expect to see such aggressive moves towards breaking things down South. I expected that to be more of a neo-feudal set up.

      Hope that makes sense...  

      Democracy - 1 person 1 vote. Free Markets - More dollars more power.
