Not many know about the Redistricting Majority Project (REDMAP) of the Republican State Leadership Committee (RSLC). The NCDP has not written a lessons learned from 2010 - but here is is, or a large part of it. I remember Tom Fetzer telling us that they were going to take the state legislatures above all else. And they did it. Read and weep.
Some of were aware that there was a national strategy but even we did not understand its goals and magnitude. But the Kochs and the billionaires did, and they gladly funded it. So the Democratic Party, and in our case the NCDP, winds up like the Post turtle, does not know where he is, does not know how he got there and has no idea what to do now (many thanks to Molly Ivins for all you old folks).
Ok, we have some vague idea what got done to us, how do we go forward. We are like the post turtle. And it is going to take a hell of a lot of work to rebuild and defeat the business community. If you think about it, it us vs Governor Pope and the rich folks - who runs out of money and determination first, cause he is not going to quit until this state is 50th in every category. He is a stone fanatic ideologue and has two or three stables of ideologues. They have bought your "freedoms" and will do with them what they want.
What will you do to change this sorry set of circumstances.
VOTE FOR RANDY VOLLER FOR NCDP CHAIR - HE KNOWS WHAT HAPPENED AND HAS GOOD IDEAS AND PEOPLE FOR US TO REBUILD AND GO FORWARD. Other folks, not so much, nice as the may be.
