State GOP leaders are bought and paid for

Written by 

To the Editor:

In a recent letter to the Editor, Sen. Thom Goolsby, R-Wilmington, changed his name for the weekly protests against Republican decisions in Raleigh from “Moron Mondays” to “Money Mondays.”

Ah-ha, the truth is out! He has to connect money to the movement because he and his Republican cronies cannot, for the life of them, connect the movement with morality. There is not a moral bone in their bodies. Talk about money. This legislature was, with the help of the Citizens United case, bought and paid for by corporate money. 

There is another movement afoot to amend the Constitution to declare that corporations are not persons. Sixteen states have signed resolutions to amend. It takes 38 states to take it to Congress. It will take some time but it will be done. Petitions are online at MoveToAmend.org.

Make no mistake about it, Republicans are terrified of these grassroots movements that are growing and coming to a city near you soon. A Moral Monday gathering will be held in Asheville at 5 p.m. on Aug. 5. Be there if you care. Organize, agitate and spread the truth.

Harper, with her million-dollar smile and swagger, immediately made me feel at home.
