With all that are going on politically I can’t wait to see who will be appointed and elected to positions within the Democratic Party locally.
In Edgecombe County we have a weak Democratic Party led by Rev. Roosevelt Higgs. The party has no meetings unless it has to such as the recent meeting for the appointment of Register of Deeds. So if the former Register of Deeds had not retired we would not have had a meeting. Thank you Robin Williams Braswell for your years of service and also for being the reason we had a Democratic Party meeting. It was you who made the party meet.
The party do not meet because Rev. Roosevelt Higgs intentionally do not want the party to meet. But I can’t blame him because the Democrats that voted him as the chair are to blame. But that speaks highly of them too.
In Nash County some Democrats over there were the main supporters of the Republican Sandy Roberson for mayor. Kevin Jones, Gwen Wilkins, Ron Green, Rev. Ray Green and Mary Wells to name a few were some of his top supporters. I am going to see what role these Democrats have within the party because if Democrats support these and the others within the party, then the party is a lie and the truth ain’t in them. How can the party support these Democrats who openly supported a Republican?
Well I am going to sit back and wait to see how the twin counties party move forward. Curmilus Butch Dancy II
I want to hold on to my guns because it is my right and i need to protect myself against the government.
Oppressed people don’t have the right to resist illegal arrest and attacks.
So, you can hold on to your guns in order to violently resist the government BUT Black people can’t resist illegal arrest by simply vocally declaring their innocence and causing a scene…without weapons
