They say elections have consequences. I believe they may be right. Republicans have chosen, locally and nationally, a social agenda, including: a women’s right to choose, voter ID, cutting programs that benefit working and middle-class Americans, cutting education that will set N.C. back years and wanting to cut Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. I could go on and on. Republicans have chosen a social agenda instead of a creating-jobs agenda — the very thing they ran on. This independent voter believes that buyer’s remorse has set in and the consequences will be the Republicans and the tea party fringe will be voted out come next election.
In the meantime, the only thing N.C. and N.C. women have standing between us and the Republican Party is Gov. Bev Perdue. Thank God she is there.
