Anonymous,Well, democrats were in control of NC for 100 yrs ! Give me a break ! GOP Passing a voter ID bill is bad? Balancing the budget is bad? Passing personal property right bill is bad? So, what if they redistrict that shows the conservative nature of the state? They passed so many bills in a very short time ! It has been called the most productive session in ages ! Come 2012, GOP will carry North Carolina in presidential election and regain the control of both the houses in states ! Forgot the Governors position ! Pat Mccroy will be the next governor of the state !

Timothy Murphy

Its disheartening, but thats the way the game is played. I am a Democrat and Ill be the first to admit that my party has drawn some egregiously partisan lines in their time...We just have to hope that the Party that gains control in 2020 will be more committed to actual represntation of the populace and more respecting of actual geographic and economical boundaries and shared experience within a district when it is there turn to draw the lines.


A disgusting manipulation of our democracy.Ugh...sickening.


I applaud what the GOP led state legislature is doing. They are making the hard choices required to be made. The Dems simply taxed and spent their way in governing. If there was a budget gap, they just raised taxes to fill it. If there was a surplus, they would create new programs to use the money for. And then when the economy collapses and tax revenue dries up the adults have to step in and make the hard choices knowing itll be unpopular.
