I am touched by your concern. All I am asking for is evidence. If the liberal brainwashing by public schools is so pervasive, why do you have such a problem producing any evidence of this monumental problem? Could it be that the expansion of liberalism originates mostly from sources other than public schools, perhaps like TV or movies for instance? A person is small minded because they want actual evidence instead of just accepting any BS slung out by talking heads on TV seeking ratings through fear mongering and scapegoating? I followed the academic and social development of my own children throughout their tenure in public schools. Never did I find the slightest hint of liberal dogma being inserted into their lessons. Just show me the evidence, if there is any.

Republicans got rid federal unemployment in NC because they changed the rules for state unemployment.

Vote out all Republicans out of office especially Gov McCrory!

If that happens, there will be a mass exodus of wealth from this state. There are too many other states around us who are friendly to business and wealth creation.

Somehow the other states around us manage to be friendly to business without spitefully stepping on the unemployed and raising taxes on working people in order to give tax breaks to the wealthy.
If they leave because the republikans are defeated, good riddance to them.

Just one republican legislator in Raleigh understands his mission there. Rep. Charles Jeter of Huntersvlle said "I was elected to work on jobs, not social issues".

Meanwhile, the other republikan legislators, instead of working on jobs, want to expand big government control by stealing Charlotte's airport, by taking control of Ashville's water supply, by expanding government control into every intimate detail of the private personal lives of NC citizens and pushing the generic republican agenda of tax breaks for the rich with tax increases for working people..

NC republikans want to raise taxes--on working people.

NC republikans want to deny your child an education.

NC rep[ublikans want to control every personal detail of your life.

NC have just republikans outlawed Sahria Law so that they can institute Sharia Law, republican version.

NC republikans are the American version of Taliban.

Finally , a possible explanation for the simian antics of the NC republikan legislature . In Forsythe County civil court this week , a lawsuit between Wake Forest University and UCLA revealed that WFU has been conducting genetic research on over 400 monkeys at a 200 acre facility near Winston Salem.. Is it possible that many of the simian genetic aberrations have escaped and are clandestinely serving in Raleigh as republican legislative surrogates? Come to think of it, I noticed on the morning news that Governor McCorey's nose looks much flatter than usual and his posture was decidedly forward leaning. NYT could be onto something. Could Planet of the Apes be happening right here in NC?

Robert. I hate to break it to you and the other ivory tower trickle down economic believers, but compared to a very large portion of the population, I would be considered a right leaning moderate. The older version of trickle down economic theory of "Let them eat cake" was a disastrous failure that started at the top and worked its way down even to middle class persons who had accumulated even small sums of wealth. I just think it would be better to stop rubbing noses into the dirt. Can't happen here? Don't believe it.

If you think Ronald Reagan's economic policies were a failure, you need to take a course in recent history and basic economics. The states that have the lowest unemployment and most economic growth are those with no state income tax. What counts is not how revenue is raised but how much income you get to keep after all your taxes have been paid.

Even George HW Bush called trickle down "voodoo economics".

Total federal revenues doubled from just over $517 billion in 1980 to more than $1 trillion in 1990. In constant inflation-adjusted dollars, this was a 28 percent increase in revenue.

&#9726;
As a percentage of the gross domestic product (GDP), federal revenues declined only slightly from 18.9 percent in 1980 to 18 percent in 1990.4

.

HOW DID REAGAN'S POLICIES AFFECT FEDERAL SPENDING?

Although critics continue to focus on President Reagan's budget "cuts," federal spending rose significantly during the 1980s:
&#9726;
Federal spending more than doubled, growing from almost $591 billion in 1980 to $1.25 trillion in 1990. In constant inflation-adjusted dollars, this was an increase of 35.8 percent.

So revenue increased 28% but spending increased 35.8%. Tell us about national debt during those years. There is a reason Bush called it voodoo economics.
