Tom Campbell – “We don’t need an authoritarian government. One of our founding principles was that the majority rules. Sadly, the minority of the majority now makes the decisions. If this doesn’t alarm you, it should.” Independent Tribune
Tom Campbell, a Hall of Fame North Carolina Broadcaster and columnist who has covered North Carolina public policy issues since 1965, describes what is happening in the NC Legislature as Republicans move us step by step toward authoritarianism. His weekly program, NC SPIN, aired for 22 ½ years with the express goal of giving North Carolinians balanced and civil discussions of issues affecting our state and its people.
Campbell – “In their overreaching thirst for power, legislative leadership has weakened checks and balances, politicized independent institutions, corrupted elections, spread disinformation, quashed criticism and dissent, and marginalized vulnerable communities. Let us confirm those assertions.”
