^^States rights is one of the primary conservative* positions.

*Not all republicans are conservative, unfortunately. We call this group RINO's.

^^ really?

At this point the majority of the party is no longer conservative. Right wing populist maybe but not conservative (even Paul Ryan has given up that).

Nah, a majority of the party is still on the conservative side of the spectrum.

You posted this, like 5 posts after the Democrat governor getting called out for his authoritarian positioning. But I am sure you will be the first to criticize his authoritarianism in the future. Hypocrite.

Show me a conservative who wants an unchecked police state. Nobody in their right mind, either on the left or right, wants that. But you keep thinking that because it will make your hypocrisy easier for you to swallow.

Here is an example of authoritarianism. Gov Cooper opposes this bill because it will mean "years of bitter, highly publicized battles all over North Carolina". In other words, instead of allowing allowing the democratic process to occur, Cooper wants to tell you what to do because he knows better than you do.

How did this thread get to page 2 of TSB?

Anyway, Roy's put himself in a pretty bad spot with the bipartisan budget. He basically has no choice but to sign it (which he should do if he wants to keep his campaign promises). Otherwise he will just show how irrelevant he is.

Why does Cooper oppose Freedom of Speech. Especially on college campuses?

I think you mean "Freedom of Speech" because the bill in question actually criminalizes "shout-downs."

You have every right to speech on a college campus, certainly even if invited by a campus hate group. But do I not also have a right to show up and vehemently disagree with you, including screaming, chanting, and taunting? This bill doesn't protect freedom of speech, it protects invited speakers' speech while shitting on everyone else's freedoms.

But who ultimately is heard? Is it whoever has the best vocal chords and can shout louder?

I'm ok with getting rid of shout-downs when the goal is to ultimately shut the speaker down. What should happen is that there should be an official of some sort present who could give the shout-downers equal time to be heard. This way, both sets of viewpoints can be presented.

I'd argue that first the NCGA should show that these situations are even an issue in the UNC system. I'm unconvinced.

One of these legislators read that extended piece in Newsweek, wet their pants (zomg Berkeley black bloc agghhhh) and basically drafted the Newsweek author's language for this bill.
