The GOP had better get their act together in Georgia if they don't want to lose the race to replace GOP RINO Senator Saxby Chambliss. Dem Nunn is up 47% to 43% over the GOP candidate David Purdue. Some of it may be sour grapes over the primary defeat of Jack Kingston, but some of it is also the libertarian strength in the state.
in, As a business owner who struggles with gov. regs and the IRS constantly, I voted for Purdue in the hope that a fellow business owner could bring some sanity to the lawyers in Congress. Kingston has been a good rep, but I was turned off by his constant barrage of attack ads and Cain's reports on the lies in those ads. The fact that the CoC backed Kingston and it seems to me that the CoC has inordinate influence in the GOP also went into the decision. Hopefully now the GOP base in GA will come together to defeat Nunn. I liked her father, but at this point we don't need to give Reid any help.

Could it be that 50.88% of Georgia Republicans are fed up with the GOPe and the CoC? Could it be that 50.88% of Georgia Republicans saw through the lies in Kingston's attack ads and believed Herman Cain over Newt and Hannity? Could it be that 50.88% of Georgia Republicans got sick and tired of Kingston's constant attack ads and phone calls? There was even a Kingston attack ad on TV after the polls closed last night. Good luck David, don't let the lobbyists and DC money corrupt you like Kingston.

Stupid enough to vote Democrap.
He forgot to mention incompetency, especially among management. People are promoted based on politics and friendships, not because of their skills. Managers are promoted based on their ability to maintain the status quo, not their skill in improving the processes. There are no profits and costs are ignored, so there is no way to judge success.

So your view of turning things right-side-up again is all about restricting what other people can do based on your view of morality? How does that make you different than the Sharia-seeking Muslims?

Eagles, birds, bats, and shrimp don't make massive campaign contributions to politicians. Corn farmers and ethanol producers do. Enough said.
The decision of who to vote for here is simple. Purdue is a proven business leader with a strong sense of what will help the US and Georgia economy. Kingston in an GOP establishment insider who has been the king of pork barrel spending and whose TV hit pieces against Purdue have been a series of proven lies and distortions. Do we want more of what the GOPe has given us or do we want a business leader who tells the truth?

Comments below say that mass transit, bike paths, and railroads are none of the federal government's business, and I agree. But the point that everyone is missing is that government spending on transportation (and most other things) has NOTHING to do with what is right, what is needed, or what the people want. Most government spending is part of cycle of graft and corruption. The government passes a law to collect highway taxes, and listens to lobbyists who tout that the best way to spend that money is to put up electronic signs over the interstates and a massive network of video cameras. The lobbyists are paid by the corporations who make, sell, and install the signs and cameras. Congress passes the spending bill. The government bureaucracy grows to "manage" the project. The manufacturers and corporations make profits on the projects. People are employed making and installing the signs. The lobbyists get paid from the profits, and a significant percentage of the profits are returned to the politicians in the form of "campaign contributions." Unfortunately no one asked the public if they wanted a sign over the highway that says, "Drive Safe, Have a nice day." We have a government system built to foster a cycle of graft and corruption, and John Boehner is at the head of it.
