    Just because she does the right thing, doesn't necessarily make her any less Republican. Don't understand why people can't see that.

This has been something liberals have wanted to do for decades and not once in that time period have they convinced the south that their flag is about racism. The polls still to this very day in fact say that 57% of the population disagrees with them. I suppose however it fine to stand for democracy and ignore the people. Hell, with liberals it's just rhetoric. The people are what matters is what I'm told by them constantly, but I suppose ignoring them when it suits you is fine too. Funny how that works.
    The South still has a long way to go, but taking down a symbol of hate that hung over the state capital is a good start to showing that BLACK LIVES MATTER!!!

    Because it's not the right thing and her reasons were trash.

    Hah. We were pushed into this by outside pressure and media hysteria. The flag wasn't on the radar until some idiot decided it made a good scapegoat for the Charleston shootings.

    She's had her two terms as Gov. Expect she'll be running on the national stage next time.

    Wholly concur, but they are still your reps. If they want to dance on stage, that's your business, not mine.
    Worth noting, Democrats: President Trump will have a Pen and a Phone. #Precedent.

    People should be given recognition when they do good things regardless of what their political lean may be.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
