"Republican supermajorities in both North Carolina chambers are likely to push . . .

"Republican supermajorities in both North Carolina chambers are likely to push for income tax cuts and sweeping education changes, including broader merit pay for public school teachers and expanded tax credits for parents who send their children to private schools. Also on the agenda: a photo identification requirement for voting that was vetoed in 2011 by Democratic Gov. Beverly Perdue.

Deflated Democrats, who haven’t been so shut out of control in more than a century, hope new Republican Gov. Pat McCrory will at least consider their concerns.

“We’ll go forward. We have no choice,” said minority whip Rep. Deborah Ross."

Black Vote in Ohio Fueled by Voter-ID Bills – The Next America

For African-Americans in Ohio, coming out to vote during this election was personal. Many saw the state’s voter-ID bills as a direct threat to rights denied their ancestors decades earlier. Fueled as much by angst against the ID mandate as enthusiasm for a black president, African-Americans voted at a rate so much higher than 2008 that they may have been the decisive voting bloc.

Fantasyland – Denial has poisoned the GOP and threatens the rest of the country too.

Mitt Romney is already slithering into the mists of history, or at least La Jolla, gone and soon to be forgotten. A weightless figure unloved and distrusted by even his own supporters, he was always destined, win or lose, to be a transitory front man for a radical-right GOP intent on barreling full-speed down the Randian path laid out by its true 2012 standard-bearer, Paul Ryan. But as was said of another unsuccessful salesman who worked the New England territory, attention must be paid to Mitt as the door slams behind him in the aftermath of Barack Obama’s brilliant victory.

So Why Is It Black Folks Can’t Celebrate The Victory Of President Obama Being Re-elected

I just don’t get it some folks think that black folks can’t celebrate the victory of President Obama being re-elected. Is celebrating not what someone does when they are victorious? I just don’t understand why some want to change the rules when things are in favor of certain folks.

Have they ever stopped to think about it black can’t celebrate alone because they didn’t re-elect him alone? Yeap with the help of white and other folks black folks are able to celebrate.

Well I am going to celebrate up until shortly after the inauguration in January. I can do that because that is what other folks would do if they had been victorious. So let’s not get it twisted. I know the rules and you just can’t change them in the many of the game.

Now We Better Get Ready For The 2014 Elections Remember 2010?

The people have spoken and re-elected President Barack Obama so what’s next?

Do you remember that in 2010 two years after “our” President was elected in 2008 the Democrats lost the majority in the US House of Representatives and also lost the majority in the NC General Assembly?

You can think the battle has been won if you want to but if you do not get “our” President some help in 2014 then we will be in the same predicament for the next 4 years.

Yes I am happy we re-elected President Barack Obama but all politics is local. We have a Republican majority in the NC General Assembly so now we have got to trust that they will govern within the best interest of all folks. I respect all of the winners who have been elected/re-elected be they Democrat or Republican.

TO SAY PRESIDENT OBAMA WON LAST NIGHT WOULD BE TECHNICALLY BUT IT WOULD SERVE AS AN UNDERSTATE TO THE MAGNITUDE OF WHO OR WHAT WAS ACTUALLY WON by Curtis Gatewood.

1. TRUTH WON. TRUTH WON OVER LIES. NO ONE SHOULD EVER EXPECT TO WIN WHILE STANDING ON A FOUNDATION OF LIES.

2. JUSTICE WON. JUSTICE WON OVER VOTER SUPPRESSION. JUSTICE WON OVER NEW HURDLES, RULE CHANGES, AND DECK STACKING TO DEFEAT THE FIRST BLACK PRESIDENT.

3. HOPE WON OVER HATE. HATRED HAS NO BUSINESS THINKING IT CAN AGAIN RULE US BY THE HAND OF INTIMIDATION. WE REFUSED TO ALLOW HATE TO COME OUT AND VOTE WHILE HOPE STAYS HOME.

4. GOD WON OVER EVIL. GOD DECIDED LIES, DECEIT, INTIMIDATION, RACISM, BITTERNESS, BIGOTRY, DISREPECT, HYPOCRISY, HATRED, INJUSTICE, PROPAGANDA, MONEY, IGNORANCE, AND CHEATING WOULD NOT HAVE THE LAST WORD.

BASED UPON ITEMS 1-4, GOD HAD A VICTORY TONIGHT! WHEN GOD WINS – WE ALL WIN. BASED UPON ITEMS 1-4, ALL AMERICANS WON TONIGHT, WHETHER THEY WILL EVER REALIZE IT OR ADMIT IT.

IN ELIZABETH CITY ON LAST NIGHT, WHERE NEARLY 300 STUDENTS MARCHED WITH ME TO POLLS – I PRAYED THAT GOD WOULD HEAL OUR LAND.

GOD DID HIS PART, NOW WE MUST DO OURS…"TURN FROM YOUR WICKED WAYS." WE ARE GOING TO HAVE TO TAKE SOME OF OUR PASTORS BACK TO SUNDAYS SO WE MAY DO A BETTER JOB OF PROTECTING OUR FLOCKS FOR DECEIT, EVIL, AND BIBLICAL MANIPULATION.

Now I Can Get Some Sleep The Elections Are Over, Haven’t Had Much Sleep Since Right Before The May Primary

Now I can get some sleep because I have been following the road to the election via the internet and attending functions trying to help educate the folks about the real truth as it relates to what “our” current President has tried to accomplish in the past 4 years.

Our President won all of the battleground states except North Carolina my hometown, ain’t that nothing.

The elections turned out just like I thought it would in North Carolina. I was hoping that Lt. Walter Dalton would pull it out however I knew that so much was riding on the hate for Governor Beverly Perdue.

I am not amazed at how North Carolina didn’t support our President and it shows you just who we are dealing with. But if you let them tell it they will say race has nothing to do with it.

I was so damn mad that it appeared that some folks were listening to the lies from the Republican Party and not actually looking at “our” current President’s record.

I was never concerned about the Republican vote but waiting to see how Democrats would vote so can’t wait to get the numbers for Edgecombe County and across the state of North Carolina.

Our President won the Popular Vote along with the Electoral Vote 303 – 206 however Florida is not in yet but they only have 29 Electoral Votes so if Romney was to win Florida it would not help him.

Okay time to go to bed now.

Chrysler gives workers day off to vote – Politico

Response: Now that’s what I am talking about. Election day should be a day off from work because that is something that all people should participate in. Elections are days when folks can be a part of decisions that are being made that affects their lives.

The car company that attacked Mitt Romney for falsely claiming it was moving operations overseas is going a step further, ostensibly for President Obama.

Chrysler’s vice president of design, Ralph Gilles, tweeted Tuesday that the company gave its entire work force the day off to vote. "Let’s go!" he wrote. (More)
