Nice argument, Fern, and since Greenmam says I'm not like him and can't see the reasoning and rationality of others, being too full of frustration and rage, I am just going to say you won it. I will admit that it's not just conservative brains that can be sucked in by powerful corporations via campaign donations with the result that the partisans wind up voting to fuck themselves.NC has only had a Repub governor for about a year.
For the previous 20 yrs they were all Dems.
The Repubs gained control of the legislature only in 2010, it was the first time in over 100 yrs.
So, in your post above you misspelled 'liberal'.
