Dear Governor McCrory, We are all the same, no matter how much you wish to deny it. "The genetic difference between individual humans today is minuscule – about 0.1%, on average" It is this infinitesimal amount that accounts for our differences: skin, hair and eye color, sexual orientation, gender, diseases, i.a. but make no mistake a human is a human is a human. So here's the short version - we are all human beings. I don't care if you are gay or straight you are still a human being. And then comes the part you really have a hard time grasping - we are all Americans. ALL AMERICANS. The Constitution says we are all EQUAL - I'm thinking it must be true.
No matter how much the bigoted Americans want to play fast and loose with it - the Constitution guarantees that we are all equal under the law. No matter how much the whiners want to carry on about how they are being persecuted because they can't persecute and openly hate on the gays and other minorities - the Constitution guarantees we all have the same rights. No matter how much gays are treated as second class or non-citizens by ignorant homophobes - the first line of the Declaration of Independence spells out quite clearly that: "All Men(People) Are Created Equal" - this, incidentally, is backed up by the Constitution. So here's how it stands... YOU did not do your homework before signing that ridiculous, bigoted HB2 into law so now you look like an idiot to the whole country not just the people of North Carolina. Suck it up little man and repeal HB2. Since it only took one day of a special session at a cost of approximately $42,000 to taxpayers to pass it I'm betting you could turn this around in a day as well. The people are counting on you to do the right thing and they are also counting the days until Election Day when you will be voted out. #OneTermPat
If your answer is... emphatically - "NO, of course not."
Then I must ask...
Why do you support it thru complacency and tolerance of extremist views within your politics and/or religion?
You do realize that by not speaking out you are as complicit as those acting on their hatred.
You may not say the words but by not denouncing them you are endorsing them.
You may not perpetrate the violence but you might as well be doing the beating, lynching, raping and killing.

The only reason I will vote for Hillary in November is because she will be the Democratic standard-bearer. It will be important to rally our party if we want to retain our Rights and Freedoms that we have fought so long and hard for. To lose everything because we feel that to vote for Clinton undermines our values is ridiculous. What truly undermines Democratic, Progressive and Liberal values is by allowing the Republican nominee to gain the Presidency through pettiness and apathy on our part. This is the main difference between the DNC and the GOP - Conservatives will vote for whoever their nominee is to take the Presidency - no matter how abhorrent their choices are this year they will vote Red.
