Anti-Human Global Warming Alarmists Lack Data

An Invested Population Doesn’t Riot

Let me generalize. Many people are Democrats, some believe in democracy. Many people are Republicans, some believe in a republic. Those who register Independent or third party find neither of the two major parties to their liking.

Gaston Commissioners Vote Themselves Lifetime Medical Benefits

Sales Tax Allocation Changes Could Right a Wrong

Let us assume that taxes should be applied equitably, collected efficiently, and distributed to benefit society in general. If this is true then our NC tax system, designed and controlled by Democrats for generations, fails on all counts.

Energy Subsidies Cost Us All

Corporatism and liberals go together too well. In Sunday’s Observer, Christopher Gergen and Stephen Martin advocate the continuation of tax credits to encourage the installation of solar farms.
