I live in Asheville, and I have a couple of questions for the North Carolina League of Municipalities.
The N.C. League website states, "we believe that a complete stop on all city-initiated annexations across the state is not a necessary or appropriate way to address annexation."
When you say "city-initiated annexations," are you really referring to forced annexations? "Forced" because you and your ilk feel that the people in a given area should not be permitted to vote on whether or not they wish to be annexed? If so, then why try and sugarcoat the truth here?
Please do correct me if I'm in error here, but if this is the case, then how can any of you simultaneously claim to be proponents of "democracy"?
North Carolina has been a "blue" state for quite a long time. Aren't Democrats supposed to advocate democracy? Or is the growing liberty movement correct in asserting that both Democrats and Republicans are beholden to their corrupted political parties and anti-liberty agendas?
As I understand it, North Carolina is one of the few states that allows its municipalities to forcibly annex areas without a public vote. Why is the state so beholden to draconian and tyrannical tendencies?
Hey, I have a great idea: Why not, for a change, consider advocating for the legalization of freedom? Another great idea: Why not, for a change, consider telling the truth?
Oh, I forgot: Tyrants generally don't deal in truth. Forgive me for forgetting!
