North Carolinians stood up for the United States Constitution protesting our governor’s comment this past week calling for the suspension of Congressional elections in 2012. The protest was held in Raleigh at the Governor’s Mansion.
A diverse crowd of patriots came from across the state to give Gov. Bev a direct message: do not violate the Constitution. We had people from the Crystal Coast at one end of the state and Asheville at the other end attend this protest (this is a distance of over 350 miles). If North Carolina would have a recall amendment, I doubt the governor would have made such a reckless comment. but both political parties are blocking this legislation. Although the media and the governor have tried to downplay this comment as a joke, the audio tape tells a different story. Here is the video of the protest and interviews:
We may do protests differently in North Carolina than New York but that is because this is a right to work state and we don’t listen to labor unions, we stand up to them. That is why we sang God Bless America, pledged allegiance to the flag of the United States and said a prayer for our military. God Bless North Carolina, our US Constitution and our republic.
