Only by organizing and educating the bodypolitik, can the regressive actions in Raleigh be off set in future elections. The backward-thinking folks, strong arming the weakened legislature, are telling us to be prepared for an economic period similar to the great depression. Sitting at home and letting the world go by will not work, ever again. Individual responsibility will be primary in our community's advancement. The gap between the haves and have not's is widening. The color of poverty will not be simply Black and White. All who are not structuring their lives toward self-sufficiency will feel the cold pretty quickly.
Those whose children cannot keep the pace in school and move on to college will be cast into another generation of poverty and crime in huge numbers that we have never seen before. Yes, Gov. McCrory and his posse in Raleigh are doing just what was expected of them. Will poor folk simply sit by and do what is normally expected of them?
