Governor Easley channels Hugo Chavez in this press release.
“Gov. Easley today asked North Carolina’s congressional delegation to make sure North Carolina and other states own the rights to new offshore oil supplies rather than hand them over to private oil companies.” (emphasis added)
Hmmm, state ownership over the means of production?
Comrade Easley continues:
“North Carolina’s intention is to maintain control over the exploration, drilling and production of this petroleum to guarantee that it benefits our people. We (state government) are in the best position to know when this reserve is most needed.” (emphasis added)
The road to serfdom is being paved right under our noses. What’s next?
