"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," Perdue said. "You want people who don't worry about the next election."

Go ahead and step down, Governor.
The Tar Heel State will take it from here.
Perue you are such a CHICKEN!!!!!
Do it with one condition: No one currently seated as a congress person would be eligible for subsequent election to congress. Ever.
No think you. I gotta get rid of Debbie Stabenow.
Make that Perdue you are such a CHICKEN!!!
Suspend her, NOW! Forever!
NC governor recommends suspending democracy to focus on jobs
Won’t be the last time someone on the left proposes this.
During the Civil War they held every election as scheduled. During World War 1 and 2, they held elections. But the economy is so threatening that we have to suspend elections? What’s threatened, Democratic control of the Senate and the White House; and rightly so.
Ill tell you what though, there is precendence to do this.
The Enabling Act (German: Ermächtigungsgesetz) was passed by Germany’s Reichstag and signed by President Paul von Hindenburg on 23 March 1933. It was the second major step, after the Reichstag Fire Decree, through which Chancellor Adolf Hitler legally obtained plenary powers and established his dictatorship. It received its name from its legal status as an enabling act granting the Cabinet the authority to enact laws without the participation of the Reichstag. The act stated that it was to last for four years unless renewed by the Reichstag, which occurred twice.
The formal name of the Enabling Act was Gesetz zur Behebung der Not von Volk und Reich (English: “Law to Remedy the Distress of People and Reich”).
See my post #38 in the thread I cited. No joke at all. Furthermore, the Observer might have changed their headline after the Gov’s PR weighed in. (No evidence yet; just my guess, but look at the timing.)
She was dead serious, and I don’t believe the thought originated with her.
somebody NEEDS an impeachment vote tomorrow!!
The quickest way to fix the economy, and create jobs is to give Republicans control of Congress and the White House. The bigger the margins, the better. Keeping Democrats in office is a sure way to finish the destruction of the US.
Do we have to pay the worthless miscreants?
Um, no. I’d rather have the chance to throw the big spenders out sooner, rather than later. They could do a LOT of damage in those extra two years.
How many American citizens understand the tragedy of this comment?
But to be sure the "Republican" DC establishment will never expose it, they themselves are not much different psychologically; Karl Rove or Olympia Snowe for instance.
That is why there is a Tea Party.

If they suspended elections there would be a war that would make the Civil War look tame.
When democrats throw crap like that out there, they do it in hopes the useful idiots on the street will pick it up and run with it.
She’s just admitted they know they’re going to lose the Senate come next election.
Now Obama's not likely to get involved in this, but a subsequent President might, and NC might find itself negotiating ANOTHER DEAL, and this time it might not be so beneficial.
I was thinking one condition this time would be the requirement that the Democrat Party, it's symbols and publications, BE PROHIBITED ~ just like the Nazis are in Germany.
and the email for the Press Secretary (Christine Mackey) is
Yeah, piss on the Constitution, right, moron Demonrat governor?
Because the Democrats will be the minority in both Houses by then.
Even that is no good. The libs are all alike. They will just run even more liberal candidates...
Democrats/Marxists just HATE free and fair elections.
Card Check, hysterical opposition to photo I.D. at voting centers, Ms. Gregiore, and Mister Franken serve as just a few, from many, many conscienceless examples of behavior in contrast to free, fair, and scrupulously monitored elections.
” In fact, just declare marshall law and suspend the whole constitution.”
Would that Marshall be Earp,Dillon or Cahill? hehe I know you meant martial but I couldn’t pass it up.
She's got a point...
Chavez never worries about the next election, neither does Castro, neither did Saddam, nor did Stalin, or Mao, or Mugabe...
That shoe certainly fits the Liberal mindset perfectly. Those are just the people they look up to and wish they could emulate.
It's a trial balloon from Axelrod and Obama, folks. They are planting the seeds. They finally found somebody in power dumb enough to mouth it in public. The next time the idea won't seem so shocking and there will be people who will approve of the idea.
No. It’s better to have them out in the open where we can keep an eye, and possibly a telescopic one, on them......
This is a trial balloon straight from Sparky’s desk.
We need to vote straight Republican tickets to get rid of all of these goofballs.
Trial balloon for the democrats. Obama may try to finesse the 2012 election by calling it off. Lock and load, it’s why we have a second amendment.
"The House of Representatives shall be composed of Members chosen every second Year by the People of the several States, and the Electors in each State shall have the Qualifications requisite for Electors of the most numerous Branch of the State Legislature."
WE THE PEOPLE ain’t writ large just to make it look pretty.
The worst thing that you can do to a liberal is laugh at them. They absolutely hate being ridiculed and not being seen as the smartest person in the room. Taunt them, villify them, turn them into a laughingstock. Make them so embarraesd to raise their heads they eventually crawl back under their rocks on their own......
Here is something that will top Gov Perdue. EU always made it a point that any nation that joins must not have a military dictatorship or a politically active military. When the Greek people pressured the Greek Parliament not to accept the bailout deal from IMF/ECB. Anticipating possible failure, the EU actually sent out low level officials to Greek military and tell them that EU may overlook a military junta if it will restore order and make sure the bailout payments are made. Behind Gov Perdue and her like minded elites is the bankers of the US. The financial crisis was looming since Bush 41. Notice how corporate elites and Wall Street elites in high society cocktail parties advocated gun control. We thought it was just Clinton leftwing thinking, but IMHO it is a lot more then that. If the US citizens are unable to face up to the debt of excessive borrowing and spending, then the elites who invested heavily into the scheme are not going to take a severe loss or want to see this country (and them) be destroyed. After all where would our elites enjoy the life style of the 1990’s and have the personal liberties to boot. Not Singapore, not China, US is the only place to be wealthy and free. Well rich people do not roll over and let crap hit the fan. If Main Street Americans refuse to payup, then force will be used. Gun control, and draconian methods will be used because we face a very dire situation. Gov Perdue is amongst many that will entertain dictatorship. Why not? History has shown that nations that implode from debt will resolve it thru dictatorship. Look at Italy an Germany in the 1920/30’s.
A charming Marxist sentiment !
This the same marxist that recently suspended all CCW permits in certain NC counties prior to the recent hurricane thereby making a lot of citizens “instant criminals” !
I wonder if she would be of the same sentiment if the opposition party - or, heaven forbid TEA adherents - were in control ? >PS
and sometimes i think i’m a dumb ass.
Well, laugh them all you want but sometimes they need punished.
