The next conservative reform state: North Carolina


Recommended Posts

Ever seen the MSM label any Democrats as "hard left?"

 

But there's no bias, oh no!

 

Following in the footsteps of Indiana, Wisconsin, Kansas, Michigan, Florida and others is now North Carolina.


And its economy will begin to boom as good bills pass.

 

And gosh, they are passing measures to prevent Democrat voter fraud. That'll make trolls bleat and moan and tell their usual lies. :)

 

In North Carolina, unimpeded GOP drives state hard to the right
By Michael A. Fletcher, Published: May 25 E-mail the writer

RALEIGH, N.C. — Backed by throngs of chanting supporters, dozens of liberal demonstrators are subjecting themselves to arrest each Monday at the state legislature here to protest a flurry of bills that could transform North Carolina into a model of conservative governance......

Legislators have slashed jobless benefits. They have also repealed a tax credit that supplemented the wages of low-income people, while moving to eliminate the estate tax. They have voted against expanding Medicaid to comply with the 2010 federal health-care law. The expansion would have added 500,000 poor North Carolinians to the Medicaid rolls.....

Lawmakers are also considering proposals to reduce and flatten income tax rates while expanding the sales tax, perhaps to even include groceries and prescription drugs — which some advocates see as a first step toward eliminating the state income tax.

“North Carolina is a high-income-tax state, and we’re suffering the consequences,” said Senate President Pro Tempore Phil Berge ®. “Our unemployment rate is the fifth worst in the country, and our high tax rates are hindering economic growth and pushing jobs to our neighbors.”

There are also measures pending to require drug testing for low-income people applying for job training and welfare benefits.The North Carolina House has passed a law requiring voters to have a government-issued identification card, and legislators are considering bills to roll back the state’s law allowing same-day voter registration and to sharply limit early voting — measures that supporters of the current law say were integral to the high turnout of minority voters in the past several elections.

I don't care what the f--k they do in North Carolina, as long as they keep producing them fine Banjo pickers and that great moonshine.

After years of liberal incompetence by the Democrat Governor.

 

 

Progress in North Carolina

New clean-election standards and a law protecting unborn children have Democrats’ heads spinning.

By The Editors

 

Democrats are terribly upset with Republicans in North Carolina: Having won the state house, the state senate, and the governorship, along with nine of thirteen U.S. House seats in the last election, Republicans in Raleigh are acting like they run the place. :D

 

The Republicans’ most controversial piece of legislation is a new voter-identification law, which Democrats are treating as the Second Coming of Jim Crow. Such is the low bar for controversy in the early 21st century: The new law simply requires that voters present a state-issued photo ID such as a driver’s license or the similar ID that the state issues to non-drivers. Other forms of identification not subject to the same documentation and security standards — such as student IDs and work IDs — are not acceptable under the new law. It is really something to watch the Democrats treat a trip to the DMV as an unbearable burden: Under Democratic initiatives, everything from a trip to the doctor’s office to opening a business requires or will require running a bureaucratic gauntlet indistinguishable from a trip to the DMV. Such trips are therefore properly regarded as educational: There is nothing that quite so perfectly attunes one’s senses to the ineptitude and hostility of a Democrat-dominated bureaucracy than a visit to the driver’s-license counter. Little wonder the Democrats object.

 

The absence of state-issued identification is not a bar to voting only — it marginalizes people from much of modern life, restricting their ability to travel or access financial services. If there are really that many in North Carolina who cannot get a state-issued ID, then the solution is to help them to do so....

 

Same-day registration is a favorite Democratic innovation that has lent itself to abuse — for example, in the case of paid vote-wranglers who purchase votes from the newly registered homeless with cigarettes.

 

North Carolina’s clean-election standards are applied across the board to Republicans, Democrats, and independents alike. But it is the Democrats who object strongly to anti-fraud measures, limitations on felons, and the like, suggesting that they have a low opinion of their voters.....

 

it also took the time to institute major tax reforms — replacing the tiered income tax with a flat tax and reducing corporate taxes, which will go lower still if revenue goals are met — and instituting a school-choice scholarship for low-income families, giving them up to $4,200 toward educational expenses at schools of their own selection. A healthier tax environment and a more flexible and effective education system are fundamental to improving a state’s economic competitiveness.

 

That’s a lot of progress in a relatively short period of time, which has Democrats’ heads spinning. :)

I used to thing changes couldn't happen quick.

 

Boy was I wrong. You can really change the landscape in a hurry.

 

The same thing could happen on a national level.

 

My son says that because of Obama's NSA policy, younger voters are abandoning him and Dems in large numbers.

 

If that trend happens in various demographic groups because of privacy, Obamacare, unemployment, etc we could have two 2010-type elections.

 

Leading to very extensive reform

Hilarious. Even sh1t for brains clem admits that the laws are created to stop Democrats from voting. Yea, you say "fraud" but have no proof of that...

 

That state is headed further down the tubes. It was always a conservative state, why wait so long? Shoving income taxes to state taxes is totally regressive. Taxing food? Why don't you guys just kill poor people? Your party is ONLY about the rich. So typical, if left all to your own devices, you would starve out the poor.

I never made that claim, moonbat. Can you quote me? No?

 

Then you're just lying.

 

No proof? Read the two books by John Fund that document extensive, mostly Democrat-committed voter fraud.

 

 

That state is headed further down the tubes.

 

Even Obama's economic adviser claims that cutting tax rates stimulates economic growth.

 

Duuuh.

Why don't you get some meds for your psychosis, moonbat.

 

Conservative-run states are thriving. Liberal states face likely bankruptcy.

 

Just like Detroit is.
