No doubt the pubbies on the board would layer us with truckloads of rhetoric defending this. We would hear every loose justification and argument why this is not just rank socialism.
I can't imagine why anyone bothers to maintain a Democrat Party organization in Stokes County. The GOP has been implementing their agenda, with one brief hiatus, for years now. Of course, previous boards, while no less socialistic, at least had the benefit of a few members who weren't solidly in the third sigma below mean on intelligence.
