    NC governor recommends suspending democracy to focus on jobs

    As a way to solve the national debt crisis, North Carolina Democratic Gov. Beverly Perdue recommends suspending congressional elections for the next couple of years.“I think we ought to suspend, perhaps, elections for Congress for two years and just tell them we won’t hold it against them, whatever decisions they make, to just let them help this country recover,” Perdue said at a rotary club event in Cary, North Carolina, according to the Raleigh News & Observer. “I really hope that someone can agree with me on that.”
    Perdue said she thinks that temporarily halting elections would allow members of Congress to focus on the economy. “You have to have more ability from Congress, I think, to work together and to get over the partisan bickering and focus on fixing things,” Perdue said.

    And this is what's WRNG with people like her. Government doesn't create jobs. Didn't the utter failure of the last few years of Obama's heavy push for "government stimulated" economy make that abundantly clear? And the concept of "suspending elections, just for a little bit..." What an atrociously BAD idea.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Hopefully the voters in that state throw him out.No elected official should be allowed to stay longer than their term.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    the only proper way to suspend elections who be to hold a public vote on the matter... using democracy to suspend democracy, as it were.
    if the people are fine with holding off elections, then I don't really care.

    She does have a point.
    Congress is going to do what voters want them to do, especially during an election year.
    When voters don't have a good understanding of the fundamental problems a government is creating, that spells all kinds of trouble.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    I would like to meet the idiotic conservative who came up with this retarded meme. Tell that to, for example, General Dynamics and watch them laugh at you.

    Ok so suspending elections with one of the most partisan congresses I have seen in my lifetime is a good idea?

    You mean like the single-payer healthcare system that didn't get passed in Congress?
    Or the high-speed rail bill that hasn't been passed?
    Or the legislation to fix the bridges, roads, and highways we already have that hasn't been passed either?

    Please explain how Obama's policies have been an utter failure when Congress refuses to implement them.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    She was exaggerating for effect. She was not making a serious proposal, but illustrating the problem with government now.
