Why POTUS Loves to Visit Asheville, NC
It's All About Liberals!
Here is some North Carolina history you might not be aware of, a state run by Democrats and their good-old-boy politicians.
It's why I was not surprised by the news story titled, Pastor Yanked From Capitol Over 'Jesus' Prayer, run on July 9, 2010. FOX News reported that the honorary chaplain of the North Carolina state house of representatives, Pastor Ron Baity, would be relieved of his duties for speaking the word of Jesus to the many soiled good-old-boy weasels of the Democrat North Carolina state legislature, his being yanked off state property.
In fact, I believe North Carolina might have the record for the most elected government officials ever to be sentenced to jail. But as the state of North Carolina turns even more liberal in 2008, who will be left to put the corrupt in jail?
When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty. - Attributed to Thomas Jefferson
It should be no surprise that North Carolina is becoming one of the most progressive states in the union. For instance, state law requires when a citizen accepts an elected position in North Carolina they're required to put their hand on a Bible when sworn into office.
But in the last November election for a candidate for councilman in Asheville, North Carolina, an atheist elected to office broke the law by refusing to put his hand on a Bible, an oath to promise to be honorable when serving the people of the state.
Rather than the elected atheist working to change the law, he simply ignored it, typical of progressives. In response the North Carolina Democrat-run State Department of Justice simply ignored the law being broken, instead the atheist giving an oath based on his own value system.
This is the same Democrat state run justice department that allowed the Duke University craziness to go on for so long that officials could no longer hide the injustices they had personally allowed by one of their own dirt bags, Mike Nifong. Remember?
DOJ won't investigate Duke lacrosse prosecutor Nifong
The NC DOJ's blatant disregard for justice had even made global headlines, revealing an operation that looked as if it was run by a bunch of good-old-boys drunk from too much power and moonshine delivered to the world of the Keystone Cops.

A few years ago the state also ignored the growing membership of the SDS from the 1960s, SDS members later chasing a former conservative U.S. Congressman off the Campus of UNC at Chapel Hill. Looking at the SDS Web site, you would have to agree the North Carolina DOJ had to know what was going yet ignored it. As with Nifong, the Democrat run department charged with administrating North Carolina law simply turned its head, knowing a former congressman would be put into harm's way.

The former congressman had come to UNC at Chapel Hill to discuss the developing serious problem of illegal aliens in America at an evening event. That is when the SDS started throwing rocks, breaking glass windows in the classroom the congressman was speaking in, threatening his life.

UNC was also the same campus where most employees of its student library had complained annually of being offended by Christmas trees being put up during, you know, the "Christmas" holiday. So the director decided not to put them up at all, keeping them locked up in storage for another 12 months. Of course there were no reports of anyone asking the students what they wanted, the paying customers who are supposed to be the ones served.

North Carolina became a state that would be owned by the Democrat Party from 1898 when the party's white supremacists created an environment where over a dozen black Republican businessmen were openly murdered for being conservative and black. After that event the state has been owned by the Democrat Party until 2010, a 112 year run.
About 60 years after the massacre, the state's arrogant Democrat Party would go on to name its annual state fund raising event after one of those white supremacists, Charles Aycock, giving the excuse he was an advocate of education. Aycock died in 1912, not exactly a lot of time to become know as a historic American educator.

|Charles Aycock, NC white supremacist . . . and educator?
Yet Charles B. Aycock was reported to have given the following speech in December of 1903 to the North Carolina Society of Baltimore five years after the massacre of conservative blacks in North Carolina:
"But there flows in my veins the blood of the dominant race; that race that has conquered the earth and seeks out the mysteries of the heights and depths. If manifest destiny leads to the seizure of Panama, it is certain that it likewise leads to the dominance of the Caucasian. When the negro recognizes this fact we shall have peace and good will between the races."
EVEN Obama attended one of those Aycock fund-raising events during his 2008 campaign in Asheville. He later returned for his vacation at the same facility where the event had been featured, the Grove Park Inn Resort and Spa.
Oh, on the self-values of the now elected atheist councilman in Asheville? He wrote a book calling Billy Graham the Prince of War and reported that the fetus was a parasite to its mother, similar ideologies found with some of Obama's Czars.

Lech Walesa, the Polish freedom fighter who fought Russian domination over his country and put his life on the line, must have observed what was going on in North Carolina when he said America was no longer the moral authority of the world.
This was around the same time Barack Obama was flying Air Force One up to Norway to grab a Noble Peace Prize for himself for what the committee said, "he might do." That was opposed to what Walesa did do, putting his life and his family's life in harm's way to give the Polish people freedom from the Russian Bear.
As we have discovered since for Obama's presidency, his sacrifice hasn't been much. In fact it has been nothing.

A quote from one of our founders, which the media knows all to well and why it's ignored:
Whenever the people are well-informed, they can be trusted with their own government. - Thomas Jefferson
I have to admit how naive I was of North Carolina's political history after moving to the western part of the state from the northeast almost seven years ago. You should know from a retirement point of view, I researched on this area for almost three years creating a fact's binder.
At the time, I thought the state might be a wonderful God-fearing place filled with faith-based people. But I discovered instead too much of it was filled with arrogant progressives, manhandling social issues that had been reserved for the people, reports of politics more corrupt than what I had seen in New Jersey.
But now that the people of New Jersey have had enough of the failed progressive agenda and elected Governor Christie to run their state, North Carolina has moved to the top of my corrupt list.
In my research of this area, I should have also realized the retirement Web sites were in part trying to relocate new money here, and probably why none of them mentioned the San Francisco environment found in the city of Asheville. If they had, we might have retired to another location. But today, seeing Asheville being extremely limited in its impact to the other 22 wonderful, surrounding mountain counties, my wife and I do not regret our decision.
However, now living in western North Carolina for over half a decade, I have discovered the meaning of a southern Democrat, which seems to be one whom serves the party before anything else . . . "my granddaddy voted Democrat, my daddy voted Democrat, and I'll vote Democrat!"
Democrats to never question the party's progressive motives have become their own enemy, always confident a Democrat would get into office that they don't even show up to vote. That is how the aforementioned Cecil Bothwell was elected to office with what I was told was only a 14% voter turn out. This allowed a small number of local radicals to take control the city government. With that election, basic faith-based beliefs were finally flushed down the toilet and sent out to pasture by decades of arrogance by the voters of the Democrat Party.
But what the southern Democrats don't get is that today's Democrat is not their granddaddy's or even your daddy's Democrat. For myself, I never left following the belief of ideas from my college days of fifty years ago, a registered Democrat living in Kentucky at the time and a JFK follower. He was so well loved, virtually anyone today who was alive when Kennedy was shot (the word they used) can tell you where they were located and what they were doing the moment they heard the news.
Unlike what I have found in western North Carolina, I didn't follow any political party through-out my life. Instead I followed leaders of conviction who wanted to lead. And for me that continues to be John Fitzgerald Kennedy. After you listen to his State of the Union speech on May 25th, 1961, linked above, you will better understand how things today have obviously "changed" in the leadership and character of a leader assigned to protect our nation!
Because of that, I had to register as a Republican so I could continue to follow the ideology of Kennedy, who advocated the protection of our nation, the dangers of Communism, and to never make fun of the strength of our nation and the people who serve it, as today's Washington Democrats love to do. You can click on the photo on the right to read about the new Democrat's Politics of Fear.
So not being one who follows the mythical lemmings running over the cliff, I wanted to discover the truth of how blacks in North Carolina felt about the North Carolina Democrat Party holding its annual fund raiser named after a White Supremacist, Charles Aycock.
To discover the truth, I actually drove in the early evening to the Grove Park Inn Resort and Spa in the early fall of 2008 to see if any blacks from inside or outside the state were protesting candidate Obama, who was speaking at the Aycock fund raiser that night.
Of course you guessed it. Instead all I found was mostly lilly-white Democrats all dressed up in their fancy clothes headed into the entrance to meet Barack Obama, with not one single black protesting outside the event in remembrance to those innocent North Carolina businessmen who were murdered in 1898 because they were conservative and black.
To this end, I have a closing thought for Jesse Jackson, one who has become a spokesman for the black community:
"What a hoot, eh Jesse, no protestors at a Democrat event named after the White Supremacist, Charles Aycock, who wrote from the paragraph seen above, When the negro recognizes this fact we shall have peace and good will between the races?
Have an Oreo Cookie on the house from my freezer, your own president more of an actual Oreo cookie than those blacks you have so easily mocked over the years in the same way, calling them Oreo Cookies for their conservative views, the same blacks Charles Aycock helped to murder in the North Carolina massacre of 1898.
That's because unlike the people you like to organize, black conservatives love their country, their freedom, and their right of self expression without having to get your approval. In your view, the rule seems to apply to give a man a fish so he can eat for one night, your hoping he'll want you to come back the next day with another fish, and then another and another.
But in the view of black conservatives, teach a man to fish and he wouldn't need handouts. In fact, he wouldn't need anyone's damn handouts, black, white, or another other color! And that's why you seem to like those you lead to be as if barefoot and hungry needing your help, keeping that money flowing in to fill your closet with all those suits and airline tickets.
About 25-years ago on a business trip I saw you standing alone in a Memphis airport, and I nodded my head in your direction. I respected you then. But somewhere along the line the ideologies of you and King traveled on different roads.
King wanted respect for his people. You used them. King wanted them to stand up and move on to be independent. You have kept them needing you. And so it continues to be since King's death of over forty years ago, as if his message of respect didn't make it into your travel bags.
Millions of Americans, black and white and not just you, remember those difficult times when everyone was asking, 'Where did you go, John, Bobby, and Martin?'
King was like Jesus, ready to sacrifice his life for his people. You were like Judas, loving those 13 pieces of silver every time your face appeared before a camera.
King will always be remembered for his non-violence, today a giant in American history. You will always be remembered but for your threats, turning everyday blacks into everyday thugs. King wanted respect for blacks. You want people to fear them.
Good luck with that as a new tide has reached our nation's shore, washing in over 12-million illegal aliens that your president wants to make into legal citizens, in the process taking away more jobs from blacks who listened to you and not to Rev. King."
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
** Democrats suddenly realize We the People were sick of their hypocracy, finally noticing the party was losing power to its failed progressive ideology. So guess what they finally did in North Carolina? They threw Aycock into the trash bin in August 2010!
It only took over forty years of the party just loving this white supremist, who it proudly named after its annual fund raiser in North Carolina, thinking the people wouldn't notice the small detail, one that Obama was proud to speak at in 2008.
Want to bet they'll miss him . . . this master of "education?"
