Another month, and another Beaufort County Commissioners' General Meeting later, we will, by the mention of just two resolutions, determine, once again, who are the real Republicans and who are not. It is that simple, and yet, should these resolutions rightly pass, and I never count on such, they could and should do some good. When these commissioners meet on January 4th for their monthly general meeting
, where the People's business openly considered and often decided, there will be a series of monments of truth.
One resolution - Resolution in Support of Concealed Carry for Beaufort County Employees in Many of Beaufort County Government's Buildings
- is close to home, intended to be central to Beaufort County, but could serve as a common sense template to other counties who want to better protect their employees, and the citizens they serve in the event where the threat of evil meets the real world of public service - as exhibited in this post - "It is Time for the Beaufort County Commissioners to Take a Stand for the Second Amendment"
Passing this resolution for our Beaufort County employees, for Beaufort County citizens' safety, for the real privilege of living in America, as an American, and protected by our US Constitution's 2nd Amendment; our one inalienable tool to combat the crush of tyranny, and keep at abeyance abject evil is just too overwhelming of a purpose not to pursue.
The second resolution, while central to the North Carolina Constitution, the US Constitution and the continuance, the sustainability of our democratic method of electing our political representatives, it is also part of the purpose of what counties do as the working outposts of civility for the great state of North Carolina; Beaufort County government funds and thereby is, in part, responsible for electing those that seek public office at all levels of government.
In addition to providing for the election of all officials - local, state and to represent and serve in Washington, DC - Beaufort County enforces all laws passed by the NC general assembly, and all ordinances passed by the county commissioners. What Beaufort County must never do is provide a safe haven for the tyrannical rule by emergency powers run amuck for far too long; i.e. Governor Cooper's emergency powers madness, which are most probably unconstitutional at best.
Regardless of whether my motive of pure purpose is remotely fathomed by the Democratic Socialist commissioners serving on this board, or even those nominal Republicans that continually collaborate with them, I will always present resolutions of great resolve
, such as Resolution in Support of the General Assembly Initiating a Referendum for a NC Constitutional Amendment Allowing Self Recall by a Simple Majority Vote
, on the night of January 4, 2020, to predict and present a better path for Beaufort County and North Carolina as well, as presented in this post of the same title
- "Resolution in Support of the General Assembly Initiating a Referendum for a NC Constitutional Amendment Allowing Self Recall by a Simple Majority Vote"
It is my firm intent to pass this resolution as well, and have this ratified resolution prresented to all remaining 99 counties of North Carolina to encourage the NC General Assembly to overwhelmingly support - to support in abundance, and in accordance with being veto proof - a NC Constitutional Amendment to give the general assembly the right to call themselves back into session by a simple majority vote
My intent, my resolution is clear and unambiguous. Now, what remains to know is to what extent 5 "Republicans"
, out of a 7 member board, might learn how to act as real Republicans when the time comes to honestly serve their constituents.
