NC Democratic Governor Beverly Perdue Wants to Suspend the 2012 Elections!
Advertisements [?]
A year ago, I made the bold suggestion that we should suspend the 2012 elections. I had stated that we needed our Congress to work until they could get all the necessary progressive legislation was in place, as well as to have a longer period of trying to fill the necessary federal judge slots with young progressive legal minds.


Unfortunately, many of you lambasted my idea. But let's be honest: We all think it, and now, Beverly Perdue, Governor of North Carolina, wants to suspend the naxt election!

Now, to be fair, she said she was joking, but the bottom line is that we MUST prevent the republicans from taking over. It takes balls to advocate an act that we CAN CONSTITUTIONALLY ENACT if we had the courage to understand the REAL enemy of our country, and the world, is the American republican Party. Pure and simple.
