North Carolina Democratic Party
The establishment always sticks up for each other as Gov. Roy Cooper, & Attorney General Josh Stein endorsed the pathetic ousted leader, Bobbie Richardson. It's an old establishment club, impervious to change. In 2014 I interviewed then 'progressive' NC Democratic Party chair Randy Voller who was ousted after one year by the establishment. He was for policies (then) that the majority of the people of North Carolina (and America) supported. The old guard conservative establishment of his party were not interested in progressive change, yet people within the party call themselves, "the progressive state of the South." Not a big stretch when you compare yourselves to South Carolina, Florida, Georgia, Alabama, and Mississippi.
One of Randy's good friends who traveled the State with him told me, "They ought to tear down that old building & start anew." How right he was. As Democrats continue to lose elections in this state (in 2022 they lost every statewide election) one need ask, what is the point of a conservative Democratic Party on Hillsborough Street- North Carolina already has a conservative party on Hillsborough Street known as the North Carolina Republican Party. #ncpol #ncgov #ncga

Americans Want A Third Party Choice
A Gallup Poll from January 2021 showed 62% of Americans want a viable independent / 3rd party to vote for because they understand the complete failure of our money-corrupted duopoly to bring any change needed or tend to the needs of their constituents other than their wealthy donors and a violent and predatory economic system that ruins lives in America.
The Only Difference Between Republicans And Democrats
"The only difference between the Republican and Democratic parties is the velocity with which their knees hit the floor when corporations knock."
This may be damning evidence
This may be damning evidence that the office of the Executive of North Carolina, charged with overseeing that our elections are fair and free in North Carolina, colluded and conspired with an outside group to rig the election process in North Carolina.
North Carolina and the 1965 Voting Rights Act
In 1965, every member of the conservative North Carolina Democratic Party voted against passage of 1965 Voting Rights Act (with one member not voting). Why is that important you ask? Because in 2021 (as in 1965), the conservative North Carolina Party stands against any and all progressive change for North Carolina, and America.
Here is the U. S. Senate vote on the 1965 Voting Rights Act.

Our Phantom Friends From Canada
In 2018 I phoned the office Rep. Robert Pittenger (R-NC09). His aide told me that Canada's healthcare system was one of rationing and denying care. He said he knew, because growing up he had a friend from Canada who told him so, and that fact "impacted his entire life" on the issue of health care.
I asked him what his friends name was and where in Canada he lived. He told me he did not remember his name and didn't know where he lived.
It is very unlikely that you would remember something so important, that would then influence your entire adult political life, and not recall the important details.
So many who oppose the civilized nature and cost of Medicare For All, all have a friend from Canada. Just don't ask them too much about their phantom friend.
Bernie Sanders And The 2016 NC Democratic Party Primary For President
Being a relative unknown less than a year before the primary, and facing the weight of declared Super Delegates for Hillary Clinton that included all three NC Democrats in the U S House, collusion against his campaign by the Democratic National Committee, and a corporate MSM blackout, here are some facts and numbers on Bernie Sanders and the results of the 2016 NC Democratic Primary for President:
- He won 40.86% of the Vote.
- He won 17 of the 100 NC Counties.
- In 18 other NC Counties the Vote was nearly split 50-50.
- He outperformed every Poll.
- Undecided Voters broke his way.
- He won 47 of 107 NC Delegates.
