Re: “In U.S. House District 4, the INDY Endorses David Price

FYI -- there are three candidates in NC-4. Not sure why the Indy completely omitted that fact and wrote the article as if only two existed.

Re: “Lipstick on a Pig: Fifty-three Weeks of HB 2, and the Day That Gave Us HB 2.0

The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars...

If politicians fail to act as LGBT advocates desire, the fault is in the LGBT movement (such as it is) in North Carolina, not the politicians.

Since 2012, the professional LGBT movement in NC has expressly and deliberately made itself a subset of the minority party (Democratic) of state power. Why would rational advocacy leadership do that? And if it did, why would it expect successful policy results to flow from a position of such complete powerlessness?

When you do not serve your mission first, you abdicate any control of your mission objectives.

This outcome was entirely predictable. A new strategy - if not wholesale movement leadership change - is required for new policy outcomes.
