But I find myself getting quite concerned by the news out of North Caroline, where Republicans have responded to losing the governorship by stripping the governor of most of his powers, and setting it up so they run election oversight in the state from here on out. And they're not even hiding it. AND there's honestly very little functional pushback.
There is little comfort that it's all well within the letter of the law. Republics run on norms as well as laws. Kill the norms and the laws can be used to destroy the Republic. And that is where North Carolina is. Not even pretending to treat their political opposition as legitimate.
Freepers love it, of course. And if you know Freepers, you know how they rationalize it - Democrats want to do worse to us!
WENDLE urges more lashing out at horribly hypothetical liberals:
Screw democraps before they screw US!!Never strongly teathered to reality, Da Coyote seems to think this is something Democrats actually do:
Always, ALWAYS, treat slime like it treats us.fortheDeclaration just declares the election rigged, allowing any and all tactics:
Eat Obamastuff, liberals.
And enjoy it.
Amazing how the State voted for a GOP President and Senator and then a Democrat Governor.Hacksaw holds North Carolina legislators responsible for the free market warding coroporations away from a lunatic state
What do the Dems expect after they tried to economically destroy the state for keeping men out of the ladies room?LouieFisk also seems to think Democrats did this first:
There is no compromising with these creatures.
Good for the goose, good for the gander.Vinnie reaches back 30 years to find something Dems did that was much more trivial, albeit petty:
This is payback.Impy knows true patriotism is all about trying to attain a one-party state. Historically, always the key to freedom!
Some years ago, 1985, Jim Martin was elected Governor, first Repub in many many years.
The then Dim State legislature stripped the Governor of power to appoint and other things prior to the inauguration.
Commies pledge to sue.GOPsterinMA revels in ignoring civilization and society:
Sentient herpes blister and RINO/DEM operative John Weaver calls it “Banana Republic behavior”. I call it patriotism, and necessary.
This is how things get done in Trumpland: Even if you lose, you win.
And inflict the maximum amount of pain as possible on your enemies.
It’s called “winning”. Get used to it.
