Would Mr. Jefferson be proud of what's going on in the NC Legislature with the Soviet-style "leadership" of Marc Basnight, Tony Rand, and Joe Hackney.
The poor low-ranking Democrats in the Legislature don't stand a chance to think outside the box to accomplish reform. They can't even vote their conscience.
These poor new Democrat legislators ran for their seats with proud ideals of making our state great. Yet once they arrive in Raleigh, they are told what to do, how to vote, essentially how to think, and if they are lucky and do everything asked of them, they may get a pet bill INTRODUCED on the floor, without the guarantee of an up or down vote.
Mr. Jefferson, one of the fathers of our great nation, would certainly NOT approve.
May God bless America!
