They imply that their "business friendly" legislation creates jobs and improves the economy. They don't mention that the legislature passed 344 new laws this past session, and not one single law was a jobs bill. What they really mean by "business friendly" legislation is the stuff that ALEC and Art Pope want very badly -- things such as removing virtually all regulations (many of which were put in place to ensure the safety of workers and consumers), allowing environmental destruction in the name of profits, getting rid of taxes for rich people and corporations and removing all limits on corporations and rich people in terms of money and meddling in political campaigns and government.

Have you heard about those White House petitions, where if you get 25,000 signatures, they have to respond? Well you should sign this one calling on the President to address clean elections and Citizens United in his State of the Union next month. North Carolina knows all to well what effects big money in our politics have especially at the state level. Surely we can put these petitions to better use than other recent noteworthy petitions like seceding from the union or building death stars!
