I am a business owner, 3 to be infact, with my home base here in coastal NC. We will always loose to SC and Ga. The area has become anti business by the retiree population and the small vocal liberal groups. Our taxes are higher and our enviourmental restrictions are even worse. My SC division does much better than my NC divisions, due to over head and restrictive local, state government. I am all for clean water and saving the earth, just with more common sense. This is a great palce to live but if we allow those who are retired to restrict our growth we will be doomed to nursing homes and mediacal practices instead of industry.
