don't your mayors have an open door to the Whitehouse and just go around your State level representatives since they don't do their jobs? When we pressured the Apartheid Government of South Africa, all the cities and local governments in the United States just went around their own Republican dominated Government. Even though your State Government is hostile, they don't dictate to you. It is another kind of secession. That is what I'm proposing if the cities in North Carolina don't agree with Pat McCrory's crap. We definately can do things to keep him in line. Like voting to keep revenues from him. He can just let the country folks take care of themselves and tax them if they want to use our services in the city.
