Bursting the Left’s Doom & Gloom bubble re: North Carolina

#ncpol: September Madness

Can’t there be ONE aspect of American society or culture where leftists aren’t trying to cram their sick, sordid beliefs down our throats? We get hit with it in movies and TV shows.  We get it ad nauseum in public schools and on college campuses.  Some…

#ncpol: November, by the number$

Fundraising reports can tell you a hell of a lot about how November is going to go.  Money helps you organize your efforts.  Money helps you raise your name ID.  It’s rare that the biggest bank account doesn’t make it to the winner’s circle when…
