North Carolina politics
The republican party has taken over at the statehouse and runs everything now. They are going hog wild and are changing everything. The problem is that they are taking us back about 50 years in a time warp.
Just like every other state that has put the republican party in power during the last 2 elections, North Carolina is trying to make so many changes without adequate analysis or buy-in of the public, that they are out of control.
I predict a disaster. Knee jerk reactions seldom work out and these guys have both knees jerking so hard that they have split their trousers!
They are sure to make the rich richer and the poor poorer. How can that be a good policy? We will see a reaction by the people that rejects their high handed tactics and unless they change all of our laws (which they are trying to do), these tactics will bite them in the butt and they will lose power over the next 2 elections. Then the democrats can screw everything up. We desparately need a third party, or better yet, we could put a class of 5th or 6th graders in their place and we would get better results and a lot less shenaningans!

Some have only received 1 raise in the past 5 years and that was a measly 1.2%. Meanwhile, the incoming governor and his cronies got raises.
We are headed for a train wreck and the conductor and the train engineer either don't realize it or don't care.
