Before you go and portray myself and thousands of other folks across North Carolina as "phony" citizen activists, may I direct you to something you may be more familiar with.


In a struggle for relevancy, you had to get 80 (WRAL says 100) front group/non-profit leftist partners to parade around downtown Raleigh earlier this month as "real" citizen activists. And at best you could only muster a crowd in the hundreds.

Who's phony now?
