LETTER: We must act now

To the Editor:

Folks, the only way we can stop the stupidity in Raleigh is to vote in the November 2014 elections. We must get these [people] out of office as soon as possible.

The new laws passed by the Senate and House made North Carolina one of the most regressive states in the union. They are all for the rich and powerful. Fracking will take place in 2015 unless we act now. Don't count on the MEC to protect us with regulations. They proved last week they are only acting to please big oil. The Campaign Finance Reform laws passed last year allows the filthy rich like Art Pope and PACS to funnel money to Republican candidates without showing where the money came from. A lot of seats will be bought in the 2014 election if we don't act now.

We also need to get a constitutional amendment on the ballot to recall the governor. He doesn't deserve to represent North Carolina. ...
