Abstract:
In the debate over House Bill 2, opinions diverge on who is the intimidator. The author talks about why efforts to find a compromise broke down and how the value of freedom versus security played a role. For opponents of the “bathroom bill,” state lawmakers were bullies dictating to local officials what ordinances they could pass and which bathrooms transgender North Carolinians could use in government buildings. For supporters of HB2, out-of-state interests were the bullies who were using boycotts and other pressure to dictate what laws could be passed and what their bathroom policies could be.

Abstract:
The fight for ratification of the Constitution in North Carolina deserves more attention for the way it fits into the larger picture of the founding era.

Rejecting the Constitution allowed North Carolina to push for the introduction and adoption of a bill of rights and protect their interests. The debate around the ratification of the Constitution in the state is detailed along with its importance in July 1788.

Abstract:
House Bill 2, the anti-LGBTQ legislation, has devastated North Carolina’s image. Most of the bill’s economic damage will be on the state’s urban centers, especially the Triangle and Charlotte. Due to the state’s partisan gerrymander, nine out of ten lawmakers who supported the bill are running unopposed or won their previous election by a landslide.

Abstract:
North Carolina’s judiciary is rapidly becoming a comprised branch of government as new legislation has significantly changed the branch. Several laws passed by the General Assembly have changed campaign financing laws for judges, changed the review process for determining whether a law is unconstitutional or not, and stripped the Judicial Standards Commission of most of its regulatory ability. The North Carolina Bar Association has asked the governor to veto some of the legislation and commentators worry that the new changes will make judges partisan as they are influenced by large campaign donations.

Abstract:
With Mitt Romney’s loss to Barack Obama, the influence of the white male vote and white male politicians is fading. The number of women in office is increasing and while that should indicate a change, in North Carolina, it hasn’t. The women in office in NC are just as conservative as their male counterparts. The sex of politics is changing, but not the points of view.
