North Carolina is the fourth fastest growing state

North Carolina continues to be one of the fastest growing states in the nation. The state's population jumped two percent between July 2007 and July of this year. That's another 180,000 people, making us the fourth-fastest growing state in the country. The Murtha family moved from New York a year ago because they could not afford to pay the taxes, and on top of that, they love everything our state has to offer. “Certainly the climate and it's a beautiful state it really is. It's got everything, the shore to the mountains,” said Jean Murtha. North Carolina is fourth behind Utah, Arizona and Texas.

I don't blame people from the North for moving here to NC. If I lived up there I would be wanting to move here too. BUT please, if NC is so great, don't change it to be like the place you just left. If you do, what's the use in coming here, unless you just want to move somewhere else and ruin that place too. NC isn't just a new landscape; it is a way of life that IS different than where you came from. Yes, we are different, and we like it that way, so please don't ask us to change to accommodate you and how you did it up North. Accept us the way we are, and we will do the same, as long as the things that ruined your last home state isn't forced upon us.
