North Carolina is more than just the home state of right wing extremists like Renee Ellmers. There's a strong progressive counterculture in North Carolina as well, up in the hills of Asheville, over in the research triangle of Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill, and down in Wilmington. To tell the truth, there are progressive pockets throughout North Carolina. Oh, the liberals of North Carolina may not scream and shout so loudly as the Republicans in the state, but we know that they're there. After all, we're among them.
A big part of the staff of Irregular Times lives right in North Carolina, so we've got sharp eyes on the ground to see what is becoming a very active progressive movement across the state. In the cities and in the small towns alike, North Carolinians are finally standing up to say that they've had it with the dirty old business-as-usual politics of the Republicans.
