I often read in this column of disapproval of North Carolina’s Republican-led legislature. Many of us have far more serious concerns than those typically expressed in this column. Principles such as the sanctity of life, the sacredness of marriage between one man and one woman, the dignity of earning one’s own way according to ability, personal accountability, and many other fundamentals are at the heart of our concerns.
I was a Democrat, but as I have heard so many others express, the Party left me. My former Party, once guided by altruistic paradigms, is no longer familiar to me. I cannot defend the Party’s position against God, communicated so loudly and clearly at the Democratic National Convention. That dishonest charade was an insult to every conscientious American.
