If certain people keep creating controversy then there will be controversy.
Many of us are tired of worrying about what the big, bad GOP is gonna do--they have done it already by destroying our state.
So let's stop worrying about them and make them worry about us.
Getting someone of Dr.Chavis' stature would do just that by starting a Million Person March to the polls this fall!
All the chatter about Ben Chavis is coming, not from the GOP, but from a certain portion of the NCDP that is frozen with fear, fear of letting the diverse members of the Democratic Party have a voice, fear of letting go of the money to be made from managing campaigns. These are the people who lost the elections beginning in 2010, and it is time they stopped chosing the leaders of the NCDP, forever.
They have lost sight of the goal, winning elections for Democrats, regaining the General Assembly and the Governor's Mansion. Winning Elections!
The way to win elections is simple: 1) win the battle of ideas (hearts and minds), by sending the message of the Democratic Party far and wide. And 2) get voters to the polls who will vote for Democrats.
Only 46.9% of low income people voted in the last election, while 80% of the wealthy voters did. If the Democratic Party can register and inspire those people who tend to vote for Democrats to vote, we can win. We can win in spite of the district lines drawn by the GOP by increasing the number of people inside those lines who vote for Democratic candidates.
Dr. Ben Chavis has spent years inspiring young people to register and vote. He was a leader of the Million Man March, and is the best man to do this.
