    Because this state has been overrun by a-hole Yankees?

    Only way to get these candidates is for 2a supporters to always always always vote. Make sure your friends and family all vote for the 2a candidate. A political candidate will choose positions that ignite (a la Trump) or excite (a la Obama) voters to come out and actually vote since so few groups consistently do. It's all about what issues will mobilize the most voters.

    I'm a fan, and wish I could vote for the head of Freedom Caucus, Mark Meadows (NC-11)

    Says the Brit? ;)

    Unlike most of the northern financial refugees I didn't get here and immediately try and turn this place into where I left.

    Proper doner, with poison-strong chili sauce and handfuls of onions.

    I miss it, but then again you can't exactly reel home drunk as a lord on foot here. I think that's why I more or less quit drinking. No staggering to the Cevlik for a doner and chips with double chili sauce and onions before wobbling to the bus stop for the ride home.

    Yeah I know you well enough to know you are messing around, but all my friends and neighbors that are transplants came here for a reason. Me and they are totally on your side. I have several neighbors that are native NCers that are tranny's, Marxists and far left loons. Most transplants want to be here because there old states sucked and they knew it. My guess is there are some that view things differently, but they are the RTP transplants and H1B visa types. That is a smaller amount and an entirely different set of people.

    Hey, and Buddy Guy is from Chicago! He is part of the problem. You might want to reference Albert King or even Benoit King!

    Nice, Albert King’s Stevie Ray Vaugn’s #1 influence, and BG’s from Louisiana
    I’m not familiar with Benoit King, are you referencing Tab?

    Worked in a gun store for several years and had to listen to many lectures by northern transplants on why only the right people should have guns.

    Well my guess is your sample size was not very large, it's a big world out there. With few exceptions transplants I know came here because they wanted a less expensive, more conservative lifestyle free from congestion, crime and wacked out lefty rules and schools. I know people that moved here withlut jobs just to escale the occupied territory of the North. Kind of like Cubans. They have seen the other side and are some of the biggest stalwarts against Marxism. Same with many Eastern Europeans.

    Well I did think about barricading hospitals while the state murders folks kids in "the best interest of the child" but I realised in the US that just leads to sudden and massive lead poisoning.

    Well you can toss in damn near every transplant I met in Santee Cooper too. Pretty much all from up North. All down there because they couldn't afford a comfortable retirement up North. And then in the residents meeting all decrying the lack of sidewalks streetlights etc etc without seeming to make the connection between the governing body providing all this crap and their high taxes (or in this case development dues). So true I didn't meet everyone, but I don't have to grab every branch of poison ivy or be bitten by every mosquito to know I don't want either in my vicinity.

    EXACTLY what ive seen here. northerners move here, complain about lack of sidewalks and the "must be selfish republican" locals that dont want to have to pay for them with higher taxes. i wanna smack somebody every time i hear "we did this back home" or "in maryland we had" at the local meetings.

    its true that not all northerners fit the stereotype, just like not all folks who live in the city could be called city folk.

    but ive personally never seen a northern transplant, who moved from/to a large city who didnt try to recreate the crap they had up north. if such a mythical creature actually does exist, im convinced they are hiding in rural communities so they can stay away from the crazy yanks that moved into the city.

    That assumes every transplant moves from a large city. You guys need to get out more. Heck I shot with a member on here from CA last week. Guess what? He didn't move from a alrge city and I didn't hear him complain about a lack of sidewalks once.

    not quite right...i said ive never seen one that was from a large city that didnt fit the bill - not that all transplants move from a large city.

    ive also never seen a black mamba in the wild. i dont deny their existence, but they aint around here.

    either way - i dont think anyone is saying that there arent exceptions - but generally the stereotype holds true. large city yank, moves to nc and complains that its not like the northern city they moved from and wants to recreate it.

    ive gotten out a lot in my years - i dont want to get out anymore. my goal in life is to be a shut in. :)

    I tend to find a larger dissonance between city versus country than I do north versus south.

    When I was in Clear Lake for a NASA internship...a few summers in Dayton for PhD research...Boulder for grad school...living in Texas and Ottawa...and driving between all these places, that is exactly what I observed. I got along just FINE with all the rural folks, no matter where. Somewhere between "many" and "most" of the city folks were difficult to grok. Once I got messed up on the Kansas City turnpike (the interstate exits off the turnpike, not the other way around...) and had to dive into the rural part of the state to get back on track, everyone I met on those back roads was waving at me. Having driven from SC, I felt right at home...made me downright homesick.

    Escaped MA in 2008. Felt more at home here than in MA. Those effing crazy people elected murderers, child rapists and pimps as long as they are demoncrats.
    But every once in a while they D running will get an R opponent that forces them to spend a crap ton of money. In my Lowell district, the D has to spend 6:1 per vote and only won by a couple points. But she won also because he only qualification was the D. Dumb as a box of rocks. Wife a a dead D who ran in the prez primary once.
    MA will vote for anyone from the Kennedy clan despite the utter disdain they hold for the masses. Hell, they won't even pay when go to restaurants in Hyannis.

    It is stunning how many city dwellers are willing to surrender their liberty for the illusion of security. And they believe that because they love city living that everyone should be forced to live in a city. Oregon passed a law pretty much mandating just that. They used the excuse of "preserving farm land." It is illegal to live outside defined areas unless one is actively farming (or very wealthy and pays a ranch staff).
    My time in China grates on my nerves more because I hate cities. I'd hate it almost as much if I had to spend a month a time in NYC. But ABQ or Denver for a month would be tolerable because getting away from the city is easy. Plus my permit is good there. Ha!
