HOT Lanes Meets Spinal Tap…”these go to eleven?!?!”

Davidson’s Town Board met with LNTC and NCDOT officials last week to discuss HOT Lanes in a special meeting.  SeeDavidsonNews.net for the whole story. It’s commendable that this meeting occurred though it would have been much, much better if it had been allowed before the contract was signed for commercial close of the project.  Davidson Mayor, John Woods, squashed that from [...]

Tillis Complicit in Cabarrus GOP Rebuke

After avoiding Cabarrus County during the primary election, Thom Tillis finally came to town last Thursday to address the county Republican Party, and I was eager to ask him a question.

Vote Fraud Prosecutions Are Getting Closer and Closer!

We’ve all heard the PEW Research Center’s cliche that likens vote fraud to getting struck by lightning, but now we understand how they get away with that nonsense: the key is prosecutions…and those things are hard to get!

Sales Tax Referendum Back On?

Last week, it was reported HERE that we may have been saved from a referendum fight over increasing the local sales tax.  The NC Senate was looking to pass a bill that would cap local option sales tax at 2.5%.  Since Mecklenburg already charges that, the referendum would essentially be voided.

Why You Should Write In John Rhodes

Splitting the conservative vote by supporting a candidate other than the nominee is a controversial activity indeed. Despite the Republican Party undermining real conservatives and conservative values on a regular basis, those of us refusing to yet again lend them our support in their quest for authority are considered the traitors and political heretics. Well, [...]
