  • Charlotte is Thinking of Not Hosting the Republican Convention

    https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/polit...cid=spartandhp

    'The odds are extremely slim, but some leaders in Charlotte, North Carolina are holding out hope that the city might be able to find a way to back out of their agreement with the Republican National Committee to host the
    GOP’s presidential nominating convention
    next summer.'
    'The Charlotte City Council briefly held a discussion on the issue Monday but took no action. A spokesman for Mayor Vi Lyles told Fox News that the city’s attorney will continue to explore options for Charlotte to exit the deal.'

    'The city council’s conversation on the convention came minutes before it supported a resolution to “strongly condemn” – among other things – Republican President Donald Trump’s recent calls on Twitter for four freshman Democratic congresswomen collectively known as “The Squad” to “go back” where they came from and return once they've fixed problems in their native countries (all but one of the lawmakers were born in the U.S.). Congressional Democrats and even some Republicans have labeled the president’s remarks as racist.'
    We are not now that strength which in old days
    Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts
    Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
    To strive to seek to find and not to yield.

    I find it interesting how the text keeps on changing.....

    Republican President Donald Trump's recent calls on Twitter for four freshman Democratic congresswomen collectively known as "The Squad" to "go back" where they came from and return once they've fixed problems in their native countries

    Now it is "native countries" being added to the text.
    "I don't discuss sitting presidents," Mattis tells NPR in an interview. "I believe that you owe a period of quiet."

        The Republican National Committee might-and Charlotte is in a southern state where a good portion of Trump's support comes from.

          His support was pretty much nationwide.

            And it is still below 50%-in other words his 'support' is under water. He's never broken 50% and he is a minority president to boot.

            And your use of Wikipedia/Wikimedia is an indicator that you don't have a valid reference. Wiki et al is not a credible source.

              Who cares? Who wants to enrich a democrat controlled city?

                It will still come down to this most likely by the 2020 election:

                1. Is the economy doing good? If it is, as it is now, Trump has a big advantage.
                2. Who will his opponent be? Right now, that field isn't looking too good.
                3. Can the Democrats sell Socialism? I don't think this will fly with most Americans.

                I don't think polling for the most part is a particularly good measure any more. This is particularly true if all you do is look at one or two of them that favor your position / candidate.

                Where the Republicans, or Democrats, hold their convention will have little or no bearing on the election unless it is a debacle like the 68 Democrat convention in Chicago was with mass rioting outside it.

                  Charlotte is also the absolute bluest spot in North Carolina.....right behind Chapel Hell. Those city leaders are notorious leftists.

                    What is a 'notorious leftist'? Have you been there? It's a clean city and appears to be well-run.

                      I wondered about that.
                      So I guess we are supposed to be surprised that leftist politicians are behaving like leftist politicians?

                        Y'all forgot about Asheville. Please don't make it act out to try and get your attention.

                        But yeah...Chapel Hill is pretty awful. My employer has asked if I would consider moving there a few times and I've made it perfectly clear that isn't happening. Durham is a cesspool too. North Carolina isn't what it used to be.

                          I've lived in Jacksonville, NC, for almost thirty years and it hasn't changed much, except that it has progressed from being a 'typical' military town to a retiree community for the Marine Corps and US Navy.

                            Charlotte and Jacksonville are two totally different communities.

                              Durham is a cesspool for specific reasons that are generally just applicable to Durham. Mostly because they love to fiddle while the city burns, sometimes literally.

                              Chapel Hell is what happens when you put too many educators, lawyers, and morons but I repeat myself, in the same place without any other adults to ground them.

                              Asheville.....they're lefty, but they're like the kooky hippie lefty that you can get along with so long as you don't steal their weed.

                              Charlotte....they've become rather militantly leftist, especially in relation to anything regarding LE. Note how it took the highway patrol sending in hundreds of troopers to quell the roadblock rioting they were having a couple of years ago. And how the city council is rather consistent in throwing their public servants under the bus in accordance with standard lefty protocol. I'd consider Charlotte to be just slightly better than Portland.
