A new bill in the North Carolina General Assembly is looking to make changes to the state Constitution, removing the portion that prohibits secession. House Bill 147 was filed Tuesday by representatives Michael Speciale, George G. Cleveland, Larry G. Pittman, and Bert Jones. All four men are Republican lawmakers. ... According to HB147, the sponsors want to put the repeal up on the ballot during the general election in November 2018. They say if the voters approve the amendment, it should be made law.There's no telling how this will go, but one thing's for sure: It'll be a hoot to watch the liberals, Neocons, and other defenders of big-government squirm if this comes to a popular vote. They'll have to come out either for or against government by the consent of the people. Pass the popcorn and a beer, 'cause the show's about to start!
