PLEASE, NIX ALL SIX CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENTS – Here they are for you to judge

If you haven’t been following the 6 Constitutional Amendments that our NC General Assembly is putting on the November ballot, here they are in a nutshell.  NIX all SIX is what we’re proposing as they would devastate our state if they are written into the NC Constitution!  Please pass this on! Some can seem innocuous at first until you dig deeper and understand the potential or what is not being stated.  Diane Amos

KNOW YOUR AMENDMENTS 

  1. THE WON’T YOU BE MY VICTIM AMENDMENT

Victims’ rights will be extended to any class of people the legislature wants, including fetuses. This amendment will pave the way for making abortion illegal under North Carolina’s constitution.

  1. THE WON’T YOU KILL EVERY RULE ABOUT HUNTING & FISHING AMENDMENT

Overfishing in the Pamlico Sound? Hunting with high-powered rifles in downtown Charlotte? Shooting neighborhood cats and dogs? It’s all good under this amendment.

  1. THE STACK COURTS WITH PARTISAN HACKS AMENDMENT

Give Phil Berger, a representative of only one small district, the power to fill all judicial vacancies. Makes the third branch of government obsolete.

  1. THE STRIP THE GOVERNMENT OF ALL POWER AMENDMENT

Destroy the separation of power. Give the legislature the power to appoint members of 400 state boards.

  1. THE STARVE PUBLIC SCHOOLS INCOME TAX CAP AMENDMENT

Public education is our most important investment. This would starve our schools, plus our government would have no way to respond to emergencies like Hurricane Matthew.

  1. THE VOTER ID SUPPRESSION AMENDMENT

This one will stop 300,000 people from voting. It doesn’t specify which I Ds will be allowed and which will not. Think a college I D or a Social Security card would qualify? Think again.

 

ALL SIX AMENDMENTS UNDERMINE OUR NORTH CAROLINA CONSTITUTION; VOTE AGAINST EVERY ONE OF THEM!

SheVille Team

We are a one-of-a-kind magazine that provides local, regional, national and international information about women’s lives and education, performing and visual arts and writing, the environment, green living and sustainability and regional Western North Carolina business, people and events. “Villages preserve culture: dress, food and dance are a few examples. As villages grow in population and turn into towns, local cafes make way for large American chains. Handmade leather sandals are discarded for a pair of Western sneakers. Due to its small size, a village fosters a tight-knit sense of community. Justpeace.org explains the meaning of the African proverb, “It takes a village,” by stating that a sense of community is critical to maintaining a healthy society. Village members hold a wealth of information regarding their heritage: they know about the ancient traditions, methods of production and the resources of the land. When villages become dispersed or exterminated in times of war, this anthropological knowledge disappears. Large cities are not as conducive to growing and producing foods such as fruits and vegetables. Villages, on the other hand, usually have ample amounts of land and other resources necessary for growing conditions.” The Importance of Villages by Catherine Capozzi Our Mission SheVille.org provides readers with information important to women’s lives and well-being. We focus primarily on the areas of education & health, business & finance, the arts & the environment. We are particularly interested in local & regional resources, organizations & events.
