Election Day came and went, but the fight is not over. A run-off election in Georgia could very well determine Republicans’ ability to stave-off the disastrous legislation Democrats have promised to consider in the next Congress. I cannot emphasize enough the importance of this race to Georgia, as well as our nation. The stakes are high and there are some important things you need know about this election.

I have already discussed the disaster of an unchecked Democrat majority in Washington. Issues such as card check, the Fairness Doctrine and rampant tax hikes would breeze through Congress with little debate or amendment. These bills would be willingly signed by the former, liberalist Senator in Congress, President-Elect Barack Obama. Instead of rehashing these horror stories, I would rather educate you about Jim Martin, the man who could give Democrats their unchecked power if he prevails in the December 2nd run-off.

First, consider Martin’s opposition to punishing drug dealers near our children and schools. That’s right; Jim Martin opposed making it a felony to deal drugs near a school. This issue was so controversial in the statehouse, so polarizing that it merely passed by a 150-1 margin – with Martin as the sole opponent to protecting our children. Amazingly, this was the second time in less than a month that Martin voted against protecting our children. Earlier, Martin voted against the House version of this legislation; making him the only State Representative who twice opposed protecting school children from drug dealers.
