    Then you don't know much about how participatory democracy works in small New England towns...

    I thought you were just using that phrase as a metaphor for any small city government, but no I don't have any experience with that form of government anywhere let alone New England. If you enlighten me I may provide a new opinion.

    New Hampshirites are generally very politically active and the annual town meetings where I grew up actually drew a majority of the voting age population, who then debated the issues of the town and voted on them, to be carried out by the mayor and his administration in accordance with the wishes of the people. Some towns make use of town councils as well. It is not uniform from town to town.

    Damn didn't read the article but that's beyond dumb.
    The church isn't a factor IMO its stupid no matter what.

    Well scratch NC of my list of places I would think about moving.
    PURE STUPIDITY 1.) Glenn Beck doesnt lie. 2.) Obama is Jesus like 3.) Sara Palin is so smart & shes a great speaker. 4.) Obama does just about everything perfect. 5.) Fox doesn' t lean right 6.) Pro-Choice is no different than Pro-Slavery 7.) MSNBC doesn't lean left. 8.) What TSA does is no different than sexual assault & child porn.

    What is worse....
    The city of charlotte has an ordinance that makes it illegal to park your own car on your own LAWN.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.
