CHARLOTTE, NC (WWAY) — The North Carolina Republican Party elected Brunswick County businessman and former Chairman of the Wake County Republican Party Claude Pope Chairman of the North Carolina Republican Party.

According to a press release, Pope said his plan included upgrading party communications and tactical operations, and working with county chairs and other local officials to strengthen their positions in their local communities.

“My political philosophy is pretty straightforward,” said Pope. “I believe in limited government, individual liberty, a focus on family and personal responsibility – core values all Republicans share.”

He also pledged to reach out to new constituencies and to use his business background to provide enhanced management practices.

Governor Pat McCrory and Senator Richard Burr, and Lt. Governor Dan Forest nominated Pope at the convention. Pope was elected with 70% of the votes and 798 raw votes by delegates throughout the state.

    … and hateful extremists just like you from both major parties, nothing gets done anymore. It’s all vitriol and zero accomplishments.

    Figuratively speaking, I wish and pray that each and every one of you would drop dead. Until you all do, nothing will ever get done.

    maybe you watch fox to vog because you know every word louis said is the truth.
    I could have not said it better myself.It gets real hard watching all the BS on these local and national liberal channels that hide the truth.
    The only problem is fox tells the truth but we are not holding people accountable yet but that time will come yes it will.

    Actually, a number of the founding fathers were non-religious. They founded this country on the concept of a freedom FROM religion, not of a certain religion.

    Second…do you HONESTLY believe that if there was prayer in schools it would stop school shootings? If you think praying to your sky fairy will help go for it. The fact of the matter is, if the christian god did exist, he would either be 1) a sadist 2) lazy or 3) complete inept. If you want to pray to a god that is all powerful but allows innocent children to be murdered because prayer isn’t allowed in their school then your god is a monster that deserves our revulsion, not adoration. The concept of gods and deity’s are simply a historical form of control over the masses…nothing more.

    Our nation was founded upon Judeo-Christian principles. The Pilgrims and the Puritans came to America for religious freedom. The children in colonial days were educated by Christian moral principles taken from the Bible. Our universities were founded by Christian people, but today it is a bedrock of socialism, secularism, and communism.

    The American educational system from grade school to college has destroyed the very principles our nation was founded upon, and is teaching politically correct ideology of the extreme left such as God created two Adams, same sex marriage, the green theory of global warming, and other liberal art programs. They teach animal rights, gay rights, and women rights, but they deny a parent the right to select the best school for their children. The liberals always want to fix education with more money. We spend twice as much for education than other nations, and our children score at the bottom of every test. Many U.S. studies have proven that spending more on education does not deliver a higher educated individual. What does work is having a stable two parent family with a mom and a real dad.

    Our new immigration law is going to expand visas for high skilled workers with math and science background. The liberals are going to give our high tech jobs to foreigners, because they have dumbed down the American educational system. We are going to give visas to low skilled workers too, because most of our low skilled workers are living the good life on welfare. While other countries are throwing out their illegal immigrants, we are going to give them a pathway to citizenship, and reward them for breaking the law. They have “Illegal Rights,” and constitutional standing before the law. The American taxpayer only has the right to pay higher taxes, lose his wealth through inflation, regulations and government spending.

    The great society of LBJ, and his free wheeling welfare policy has destroyed the American family. People are looking for a hand out and not taking individual responsibility for their life. President John Kennedy said, “Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country.” We have more crime today, because of the breakdown of the family and lack of moral and Godly principles. What do you think all those school and workplace shooting are about, guns or a society gone mad with evil intensions? The liberals want to blame crime, murder and school shooting on guns, but they need to blame themselves for destroying school prayer, the posting of the ten commandments in public places, and suing anyone who mentions the name of Jesus Christ. When I was in school, every kid had a toy gun, but we did not kill anyone.

    Every politician constantly talks about jobs. We have had two trade agreements sending jobs South and East. We have much stricter environmental laws and business regulations than any other nation on earth. We have the highest labor cost in the world. It cost four times more to make a pound of nails in the U.S. than in China. We clean up our own environment, and dirty the rest of the world. In the process we get less jobs, cheap junk, and dirty manufactured goods. It makes the environmentalist feel good, because they can buy a carbon tax credit to pollute. Now we add to it our new health care law that will send price sky high for insurance, destroy more jobs, and increase the cost of goods and services.

    We in America have exchanged our freedom, liberty, personal responsibility and our families for a government check. We have saddled our own children with over 16 trillion dollars worth of debt. How are you going to explain all this to your children when they cannot find a job, or when they do not know their own sexual identity? Are you going to blame God, or yourself for the perversion, political tyranny, and social decay in society?

    Watch Fox News much?


  • Vog46 says:

    I feel the same way.
    I would hope that zephyrs emerge from the anal cavities of the deceased extremists and fly about, sprinkling the fairy dust of gentleness as they go so as to allow those soft breezes to carry this dust so that all will become civil, all will become “mello.” Then, and only then will the parties become engaged in gentle discourse which will lead to compromise and accomplishment of goals……..

    time for my meds………


  • ChefnSurf says:

    Stay the course.

    …so we can all have a little clarity here.

  • ChefnSurf says:

    … I’m a relatively shy person who has difficulty expressing things with the written word. Besides, we’re all noble people here. I wish no harm to any of God’s wonderful creatures ……. Perhaps, figuratively speaking though, and of course in the most mild mannered of ways …….

    Except for all of those phreaking extremists from both parties! I wish each and every one of them would drop dead !!!!!!! DEAD! DEAD! DEAD! AS IN NO LONGER LIVING! ARRRGHHH! *&&^$#!!

    Hopefully, that should provide some additional, yet gentle, clarity.

    You and “dean baily” just won the “Dueling Banjos of Politics Award”

    The both of you have just proven with your posts that you can be affiliated with either party and still be an idiot.

    Curiously enough, both posts seem to be written by the same person. You’re either the same person or Siamese dunces.

  • renoGuest says:

  • Guest000000 says:

    Maybe he can keep some of these idiots from talking about the definition of rape.

  • renoGuest says:

    I feel sorry for you because you have to live a lie everyday. You have to try to convince yourself everyday that there is no god and something keeps telling you there is. Well you do not have to convince a christian either way because we believe and you or no one else can change that. Yes this country was founded on christian faith and god will prevail in the end.
