NC governor recommends suspending democracy to focus on jobs
The Daily Caller ^ | 9/27/2011 | Matthew Boyle

Posted on 09/27/2011 2:01:44 PM PDT by Bed_Zeppelin

As a way to solve the national debt crisis, North Carolina Democratic Gov. Beverly Perdue recommends suspending Congressional elections for the next couple of years.

“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,” Perdue said at a rotary club event in Cary, North Carolina, according to the Raleigh News and Observer. “I really hope that someone can agree with me on that.”

Perdue said she thinks that temporarily halting elections would allow members of Congress to focus on the economy. “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,” Perdue said.

North Carolina Republicans immediately scoffed at Perdue’s proposal, pointing out to her that elections hold politicians accountable for their actions. “Now is a time when politicians need to be held accountable more than ever,” North Carolina GOP spokesman Rob Lockwood said in an email to The Daily Caller. “To suspend an election would be removing the surest mechanism that citizens have to hold politicians accountable: The right to vote.”

I live in NC and the only reason she is in office is by riding Obama's coattails. Stupid Dem voters all voted straight Dem ticket.Trust me, she is not loved in this state, her poll numbers have been dismal almost from day 1.

The good news is that we have a Republican majority in the state house and senate for the first time in over 100 years d/t the election correction of 2010. They are terrified of the beating they will take in 2012, it will be EPIC!

A "joke" is one thing her comment was not ! She might have gotten away with it as a "brainstorming of ideas", but her spokesperson obviously didn't think so when he tried to cover for her. And Perdue wouldn't say she hoped others supported her "joke", so it seems pretty clear she was serious.

I'm not sure why I'm trying to give her the benefit of doubt.....she's a Dem. who sees an apacolypse descending in Nov. '12.

When the Research Triangle Park (RTP) opened for business in the late70s, early80s, IBM located here transporting lots of Yankees from NJ, NY, etc. Of course, they brought their politics with them, and, ta da, here we are. (Note that in Nov 10 elections, we took over NC House and NC Senate—first time in 100 yrs.) Her days are numbered.

Was she “joking”? Doubt it. Can you make a case for 4-years terms for the US House? Sure. But they aren’t and elections can’t be suspended. We had them during the Civil War!

I think we should have EARLY ELECTIONS in NC. Get rid of this hag a year early!!!

Today, Peter Orszag, Obama’s former Budget Director, said pretty much the same thing:

“Why we need less democracy”
“In other words, radical as it sounds, we need to counter the gridlock of our political institutions by making them a bit less democratic.”

Bev Perdue is a lame duck and she knows it. The “Obama primary challenger” feint is designed to keep her approval numbers from falling to zero and to keep her in the game.

BTW, she had her Chapel Hill house on the market for about $2.1 million and it recently was pulled off of the market. Who knows, she may be planning to move back to Chapel Hill in 15 months...

From the text I read this was no joke, except in the sense that it was a laughably stupid idea in the mouth of someone who never should have come within a country mile of an elective office, much less that of a state Governor. A government that so fears its constituents that it will not allow them to hold an election is a government that needs to be fired, or to be fired at, their choice.

She knows they’re going to get their asses handed to them and they’ll be dumped out into the street come election day, so, like all good fascist douchebags, she’s planting the seeds, testing the water, to see see what kind of reaction she’ll get.

NC folks should send the fascist hag a message loud and clear. Does NC have a recall option? And is the NC GOP ballsy enough to start that ball rolling?

She just handed them the best campaign weapon ever. I’m hoping they’re not too stupid to let it pass.

I think the Freepers that have speculated that she was fed this line are probably correct. Normally, the ditz seems to confine herself to state matters. By specifying “congress” (and not for example state house or state senate) she clearly stuck her nose into things that she a) doesn’t know anything about b) normally never deals with c) has no constitutional authority over.

Based on these considerations I would tend to agree with those that say that she was told to say this. The speech was in Cary, which is where I live.

Although it was clumsily done, this is no fluke.

The meme that we’re going through an unprecedented crisis because the Republicans are putting their party ahead of their country and are obstructing the success of Obama’s plans for a modern industrial nation is the main theme of Obama’s recent campaign appearances and his address to Congress (but I repeat myself).

Thomas Friedman of the NY Times, and to a lesser extent Paul Krugman, have both been pushing the idea that our representative government is getting in the way of the nation’s path to prosperity, interfering with the ability of serious leaders to solve serious problems. Their fawning admiration of dictatorship and one-party rule in China fits right in with Obama’s and Perdue’s goals.

The usual suspects are chiming in with their support, further emboldening their brash plans.

This is not an accident, rather these messages are coordinated, in the same way that nearly all Democratic talking points are coordinated. They can count on violent support from union thugs and anarchists alike.

The Commies clearly see that the 2012 elections pose a big obstacle to their collectivist dreams. The loss of Weiner’s seat has made them frantic. Are they really going to continue down that path? Do they really believe that they are going to get away with it?

Actually, there’s a rather simple rejoinder to this idiot crypto-fascist’s remark: “sure, Bev, we’ll suspend Congressional elections - right after we Republicans finish cementing in our majority in Congress.”

Even a liberal should be able to grasp the consequences of dictatorial government under those circumstances.

Did you see my post #38?-—thinking as you (especially, “This is not an accident, rather these messages are coordinated, in the same way that nearly all Democratic talking points are coordinated.”)

However, you have added some critical points in your excellent post.

Particularly important:

“Thomas Friedman of the NY Times, and to a lesser extent Paul Krugman, have both been pushing the idea that our representative government is getting in the way of the nation’s path to prosperity, interfering with the ability of serious leaders to solve serious problems. Their fawning admiration of dictatorship and one-party rule in China fits right in with Obama’s and Perdue’s goals.”

Underlying this statement is that 'rats indeed have a notion to "fix" the current crisis, and know if they do it, they would have even LESS success at 2012 elections than they do now.

Two thoughts:

1) Wow, I guess I have to apologize to all those freepers insisting that American is "a Republic, NOT a democracy". If they're referring to North Carolina, they are in fact CORRECT! Isn't it GREAT when there are NO free elections, the people are NOT the ultimate source of authority, and the state can impose whatever it wants? They should be saluting the Governor of N.C. for standing for "states rights" and opposing the evil "democracy" and lowly little citizens. Maybe the other 49 states should follow her lead! Castro would be proud. Viva Revolución! < /sarcasm>

2) Once again I will remind freepers, North Carolina is the state that gave us Jesse Helms and voted Republican in 8 out of the last 10 presidential elections. Yet the RATs ran and elected this socialist b---- as Governor. Isn't it interesting how the idea that RINOs are "the best we can get" never works in reverse? None of the Democrats in heavily GOP states feel the need to DINOs so they can "electable". Hmmm.

This event is even more insidious when viewed in the light of the executive order that Perdue signed back in (I believe) 2010, that reportedly prevents civilians from legally transporting firearms away from their own premises if a state of emergency is declared (such as has been done for hurricanes Earl and Irene and possibly in other circumstances).

Perdue has claimed that it does no such thing, however people who have examined the applicable wording state that Perdue’s claims are simply false.

Perdue and her enablers have used and will continue to use ridicule to counter anyone who raises concerns about her actions and her plans. However mudding the water and using ridicule in an attempt to stifle her opposition does not negate the executive order, rather it is a classic technique employed by leftists to avoid being held accountable for their own actions.

You don’t have to believe in conspiracy theories to understand what they have done and what they are trying to do, rather all that you need to do is pay attention to the details.

There’s not a lib in or out of power who wouldn’t want this when a DemonRat has the presidency and at least the House or Senate majority. I’m sure they were staying up all night trying to figure this out when they had Zero and both houses of Congress. What they really want is an apartheid govt. where the religious, the business owners, and political conservatives are treated exactly like the Jews in nazi Germany.

What the liberal on the street doesn’t understand is that, the day this happens, they’ll be considered livestock, too, and the death squad is just around the corner for their family.

The liberals think that they’ll suddenly be somebody, get invited to cocktail parties at the White House, and be showered with the money stolen from the jailed undesirables. Many many loyal nazis and their families wound up in the death camps for “crimes” as petty as a single family member failing to give the nazi salute.
