Stories written by Christian Hine
A 1999 Cum Laude graduate of UNC Charlotte’s Belk College of Business, Christian has spent fifteen years as an award winning political activist and consultant in both North and South Carolina...with a little radio talk show hosting and newspaper editing thrown in for good measure. A self-described "Republitarian", Christian is an unabashed advocate of traditional free market capitalism and views passage of the FairTax as the single most effective method to combat the social manipulation and corruption found in government today. When not stressing over yet another new law, Christian enjoys treasure hunting, obscure European power metal bands, good beer, and anything related to Carolina Panthers football...except talking about the 2001 season. He's removed that from memory.

The Ghosts of Hillary

Hillary Clinton’s entrance into the Presidential race certainly came as no surprise.  What is surprising is how many people consider her a viable candidate given her history of corruption, ineptitude, lack of accomplishment, and abhorrent political ideology.  There’s also the little matter of just how many people around her have died of mysterious circumstances at “convenient” […]

Tax Code Insanity

Ah, the weekend before federal income taxes are due. By now, I expect the nation’s follicle count is swiftly dwindling as a frustrated population struggles to comprehend and comply with what I consider the biggest national embarrassment the US has: our tax code. As of April of 2014, the federal code took 73,954 pages to explain. To […]

NCGOP Zings Roy Cooper

In the spirit of April Fools Day, the NCGOP has done something it rarely ever does…go on offense.  It’s a little sad that it takes a “holiday” based on creating false impressions to show a little chutzpah, but nonetheless it has been done. In an email released this morning, the NCGOP sent a spoof email ostensibly from […]
