H. Theron Few: Bring on austerity

September 25, 2013 

Bring on austerity

The writer of the Sept. 19 Point of View piece “Selling the snake oil of austerity to Americans” who suggested that N.C. is in jeopardy of a banana republic coup is an extreme liberal who should not be allowed to teach history at a state university because he is unable to give a balanced view of history, such that the student is enabled to make a reasonable decision and apply it to current situations. But I fear he is but one of many in such positions affecting political rather than historic views.

The current administration in N.C. has been in office only for under nine months. The austerity needed in our state has not yet begun to reach the level we need!
