Well maybe instead of "radical constituents" i should have just said "the base".
In regards to it being a symbolic gesture I don't think it really is at all. The Feds are going to laugh about it and let the Courts find it unconstitutional while the Left will in turn use it to further their depiction of the Right as Neanderthal nutjobs...thus getting traction out of it as well. Remember the main part I quoted from the WRAL site...attempts to use the 10th have been tried countless times since the Civil War and they always fail. It's a nonstarter and a waste of the people's time.
This is why I HATE the 2 party system and the politics they play. They're only in it for themselves and they play us for idiots. There is no Left VS Right...it's really US VS THEM.
Spectre is one zillion percent correct. The whole left -vs- right, conservative -vs- liberal act is just a distraction that allows both parties to get into our wallets.
i get so irritated with shit like this. hey, supposed conservative republicans: instead of wasting a super majority on dumb shit like this why not use the ammo to repeal income and most importantly property taxes in the state. that way we could be the only state in the union that you can actually "own" your land.
hey republicans, you spend all your time talking about high spending taxing liberals, take this opportunity to cut the NC govt by 40% and actually allow an environment to foster job growth.
it is all lip service from both sides. at least the liberal democrats have the balls to actually do the shit they say they want to do.
The Speaker killed it.
Do you know what the Republicans in this great State did do Chef? They passed a law middle of last year making the 1st 50k of profit for businesses EXEMPT...that is a 3500$ tax cut at 7%. My wife has her own business subcontracting and let me tell you that was one welcome deduction.
They are certainly throwing a lot of red meat out there for their base but this one I can get behind 200%. Finally instead of continually dipping in my damn pocket they actually gave some of it back.
