    Wow - If you've got 20 minutes (and haven't eaten recently), check out this
    video of Rep. Larry Pittman, R-Cabarrus.

    The mix of religious fervor with Republican politics is nauseating. He says the GOP leadership has been "squeemish about what needs to be done" on things like Voter ID, resolutions in support of prayer, and gun rights - all because House Speaker Thom Tillis doesn't want to look bad when he runs for Senate.

    He wants a constitutional amendment saying the state will not confiscate weapons, wants concealed carry to be allowed for principals, teachers, and college faculty, staff & students, and is calling for new, more conservative leadership in the NC House next term.

    This is a perfect example of what we are facing in North Carolina - and why Democrats need a 50-State Strategy for every election.

    Filibuster reform, 2013 - woulda, coulda, shoulda.

      And even I think that's tacky. Then again, I'm pretty sure this guy believes that Mormons don't deserve First Amendment rights, so I'd avoid him anyway.

      Leftist Mormon in Utah, Born in Washington State, live in UT-04 (Matheson).
