Our Constitutional crisis is a result of bipartisan government strangling our confidence. The parties are out of control and can no longer follow rules or abide by our laws. Sophisticated financing, media control and gerrymandering all work to protect incumbents in North Carolina. To counter that, fair redistricting and term limits can promote voter confidence and 3rd party competition. Independent journalists are under attack. We can’t let government-sponsored censorship by the social media giants stifle ideas. Snooping on every American’s financial affairs and the attempted framing of our President by the intelligence agencies are dangerous signs that our political parties abuse power. The Patriot Act licensed the intrusive Homeland Security agency to stoke more unnecessary fear to grow their big budgets.
