There are two realities in this state. The one that most of us live by:
The NCAA has announced they are relocating seven championship games from North Carolina thanks to their "anti-LGBQT" bathroom bill!
These are not the first sporting events North Carolina will lose because of the passage of HB2. In July the NBA pulled next year’s All-Star Game from Charlotte, and November’s Duke-Albany basketball game was cancelled due to a New York state policy banning certain types of travel to North Carolina.
Just a month after its passage, the best estimates were that HB2 had already cost the state around $80 million. In the last five months, that amount has certainly skyrocketed.
Then there is the reality that the WISGOP lives in.
Representative Jesse Kremer (R-Big Government) is still obsessed with sending Wisconsin back into the 1920's and passing an "anti-LGBQT" bathroom bill in WI.
Unfortunately, Rep. Kremer is running unopposed but we can send him a message and make sure he has less extremist friends to try and destroy commerce in WI!
Even as I write this, the activist U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit has been attempting to usurp each state's tenth amendment right to resist the mandate that young girls be forced to lose their dignity and privacy by changing next to teen boys in school. The court ruled that we must defer to the "experts" - unelected, federal Education Department bureaucrats - to set policies and define reality for our children.
If we really want to take this country back, we have to ensure that unelected judges are not the be-all and end-all, but simply one of the checks and balances in our government. The only way to accomplish this is to ensure that we elect federal officials who will confirm judges that will not "play god," but will serve God and protect the sanctity of the Constitution of these United States. Elections do have consequences.
Vote Democrat down ticket in November.
