Know your amendments

Here's a blow-by-blow analysis of all the amendments and why they suck.

THE WON’T YOU BE MY VICTIM AMENDMENT
Victims’ rights will get extended to any class of people the legislature wants, including fetuses. This amendment will lead the way to making abortion illegal under North Carolina’s constitution.

THE KILL ALL RULES ABOUT HUNTING & FISHING AMENDMENT
Overfishing in the Pamlico Sound? Hunting with a high powered rifle in downtown Charlotte? Shooting dogs and cats? It’s all good.

THE STACK COURTS WITH PARTISAN HACKS AMENDMENT
Give Phil Berger the power to fill judicial vacancies. Makes the third branch of government obsolete.

THE STRIP THE GOVERNOR OF POWER AMENDMENT
Give Phil Berger, a guy who represents only one small district, the power to appoint 400 state boards.

THE STARVE PUBLIC SCHOOLS INCOME TAX CAP AMENDMENT
Public education is our top expense. This amendment would starve schools. Also, our government would have no way to respond to emergencies.

THE VOTER ID SUPPRESSION AMENDMENT
This amendment will stop people from voting. Even worse, it doesn’t specific which IDs will be allowed and which will not. Think a college ID would qualify? Military ID? Think again.

Of course they were

The GOP in Raleigh is evil, but they're not very bright. They prefer the copy-and-paste approach. Just look at the Won't You Be My Victim amendment. Straight out of the Right to Life playbook.
