Three Republican state senators introduced a bill that would slap a felony charge on individuals who disclosed confidential information about fracking chemicals. The bill, whose sponsors include a member of Republican party leadership, establishes procedures for fire chiefs and health care providers to obtain chemical information during emergencies. But as the trade publication Energywire noted Friday, individuals who leak information outside of emergency settings could be penalized with fines and several months in prison.

Communism is government ownership over the means of production. Certainly fully controlling the speech of a worker is equivalent to employing that worker even more so than the businesses itself. The government of North Carolina, and in specific the Republican party, definitely sees itself as the owner of these oil companies. Given that oil companies are a means of production of oil, the NC Republican party is being communist, not capitalist. Is this crony capitalism or is it actually communism?
The New Hampshire GOP would be doing the exact opposite of the NH GOP thanks in part to the 12 Free State Project members of the legislator and also the pre-existing Liberty Alliance. Its the only state worth being a Republican with possibly most of them in office not being communists.
the political and economic doctrine that aims to replace private property and a profit-based economy with public ownership and communal control of at least the major means of production (e.g., mines, mills, and factories) and the natural resources of a society. Communism is thus a form of socialism—a higher and more advanced form, according to its advocates. Exactly how communism differs from socialism has long been a matter of debate, but the distinction rests largely on the communists’ adherence to the revolutionary socialism of Karl Marx.
