New Audio: Perdue Was Dead Serious About Cancelling Elections

Listen to the audio yourself.

"You have to have more ability from Congress, I think, to work together and to get over the partisan bickering and focus on fixing things. I think we ought to suspend, perhaps, elections for Congress for two years and just tell them we won't hold it against them, whatever decisions they make, to just let them help this country recover. I really hope that someone can agree with me on that. The one good thing about Raleigh is that for so many years we worked across party lines. It's a little bit more contentious now but it's not impossible to try to do what's right in this state. You want people who don't worry about the next election."

The bolded text is mine. The treasonous sentiment is owned entirely by a governor that should be rode out of Raleigh on a high-speed rail.

As I said on your other post, if the problem is that the current elected officials can't get their job done, then suspend elections and replace the politicians with citizens randomly selected by a jury draft type system.

The problem in the elections is the gerrymandering and party control/allegiance vice allegiance to the constitution. Something the governor's comment makes very clear about at least some of our elected representatives.

Whenever a Democrat/Liberal says something either incredibly stupid or incredibly bigoted and gets caught at it, they always try to laugh it off as a joke, and usually try to blame the person who caught them into the bargain. "OMG, you ignorant wingers, can't you tell a JOKE when you hear one, ha ha ha!"

I think it would be a good idea to suspend elections. This would push us to revolution, which is were we are headed and might as well go ahead and get it over with.
