Conservative state leaders awaken a sleeping giant

If yesterday’s Mountain Moral Monday is any indication, North Carolina’s conservative political leadership may be beginning to feel a little uneasy about the movement they have awakened in this state.

When thousands of people turn out in the dog days of summer to protest the actions of lawmakers who’ve already adjourned for the year, you have to believe that this new movement for change really is here to stay. Moreover, as this story makes clear, the movement appears to be spreading beyond North Carolina.

    I see the sun rising on North Carolina. Barber’s mention of guns as well as Elizabeth Warren’s opposition to gun has been the tickle under the nose of the giant. I look forward to the debate. There are not enough posters in NC when guns become the issue.

    I have a C&C and I support sensible gun laws…Frances is a trollster.

    Not sure it is a “giant” per se….but at least taking the circus to the most likely clients finally got a turnout for these Money Monday things. They finally found their base of support out in the backwoods of the mountains.
