Long article covering a Congressional forum, March 2012.  The reporting is biased but thorough.  You can read between the liberal jabs and get the facts. http://www.maconnews.com/news/state–region/2669-republicans-host-forum-for-nc-11-candidates

US HOUSE      Republican RUN-OFF

Vance Patterson (R)

Q12.  Should a person’s religious beliefs influence the decisions they make while serving in public office? NO – but in campaign speeches promises “God in government.”  Was he careless and misread the question?  Asked about this question at 5/22 meeting, he confirmed his answer of “no”.  When asked about “God in government” and his statements of being a “Christian”, and “Student of the Bible”, he said he just didn’t like the question and explained religion should play no part in government.  He would have been more comfortable with the question if it had been worded differently, like “Should a person’s faith influence the decisions….”  Press Release from 5/25/12, link, that uses religious beliefs to make his point.

Q13.  Should Congress allow churches to endorse candidates for public office without threat to their tax-exempt status? NO

Q14.   Should the authority of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to regulate the broadcast of obscene media content be extended to cable and satellite television? NO

Q17.  Should it be illegal to transport a minor across state lines in order to evade state laws requiring parental consent for abortion? NO ……. no?  Campaign speeches state “I am against all forms of abortion.”  Was he careless and misread the question?  Asked Vance about this question at 5/22 meeting, he confirmed he didn’t mean it.  He offered “it was probably late.”

Mark Meadows (R)

Hayden Rogers (D)

Roy Carter (D)

  • 2008 website from a Congressional run in the 5th District http://www.democracyforamerica.com/campaigns/2484-roy-carter-for-congress-nc-5
  • facebook –  http://www.facebook.com/CarterNC45
  • Quote from his home page, his Democracy For America values, “Roy Carter is socially progressive because he has always held to the Democratic values of equality and civil liberties.”  Those words “socially progressive” set off alarms for patriots.
  • At a Caldwell County Democrat Party meeting that I attended, he admitted for the first time he is against Defense of Marriage Amendment (DOMA).  He does not support traditional marriage.  He said something like, I hope that doesn’t get out.

NC House

Edgar Starnes (R)    — currently holds this office

Caldwell County Commission

Randy Church (R)

  • official website –
  • facebook –
  • Ran for county commission as a Democrat in 2008, was a Republican from 2002-2004, then a Dem from 2004-2011.  Before 2002, he was a lifelong Democrat.  It’s one thing to have a change of heart like Ronald Reagan or Jessie Helms did, but it’s something different to ping-pong back and forth between the two parties for 10 years.
