    Alright Georgians, who are you guys liking for the upcoming Governor's race?

    2nd Amendment Stance as stated on their websites:

    Anyone know how Barnes and Baker felt about SB308? That should tell us all we need to know from a 2A standpoint.

    I am for Handel as the other top 3 candidates have issues as reported on CH2 in Atlanta and in her brochures. Insider advantage said the boys must duke it out between them before taking on her. They are trying to trash the front runner. She has the smarts and background to do the job. Barnes is just another Tax and Spend Democrat that was sent home after one term that will support the OBAMA cause he does not say he is against him. The Barnes Commercials say I will do this and that, but the Senate and House have to pass it to go to him, and they are Republican Ruled. Nuff Said.

    IMO, Handel is weak on the second amendment. While she may not be anti carry, she definately isn't very pro carry. She will not support campus carry or loosening the list of of limits places much more.

    She also needs to drop her "I'm holier than thou" attitude. She refuse to share a stage with McBerry or debate him on the issues. As Giv, will she refuse to deal with other officials because they were accused of wrong doing?

    As I read through this thread, it is very clear that America will continue to decline. Those of you who have posted in this thread who are trying to decide between Handel and Oxendine are the majority of the problem that is the contributing factor to the decline.

    You're just like everyone else who fails and refuses to research the candidates.

    There's what, 12+ people running for governor in GA and we'll end up with the worst choices come November. Why? Because the idiots who go to the polls who pull the lever for the persons who had the most signs out and who were on the newscast the most.

    As far as me, I'd love to vote for Chapman or Johnson, but their poll numbers are terrible, mainly because the idiots who've the media has polled "didn't know who they were". Hell, that's a GOOD thing. They only know Handel, Oxendine and a little of Deal.

    I guess I'm voting for Deal. I can't stomach having to vote for Barnes because Handel or Oxendine won the Pub nomination.

    At any rate, we're screwed.

    I agree with the two comments above (only). Generally, the only choice for the country in general is 'fast or faster' decline.

    In GA., I think we don't have good gun laws that will not be changed in the near future.

    The key issue for selecting a GA. Gov. should be which one will get the state finances in shape so the state can deal with the financial challenges to come. I live in Cobb, and they it is a well run county. They recently lowered the assessment on my home and I hopefully will be paying lower real estate taxes because of it.

    So you're saying that anyone who is looking at Handel or Oxendine is ignorant? Sounds to me like you are just pissed because your candidate can't get enough votes to make it in the primary.

    Uh, No I don't think so, Frank.

    I don't have "a candidate". This ain't about "my guy" and "your guy"...

    This is about the stupid American voter. They pay no attention to what needs attention. All they see is a sign on the road and a commercial on TV.

    So what you're saying is that this country has improved greatly over the last 60 years by electing the most popular candidate and not the one who will not bow down to corruption?

    Yeah, we've come a long way in the last 12-15, for sure. :upeyes:

    THE problem with our political system is the party system, how many of you have picked "your guy" to steal from Mr. Hooks, and have been running any and all other candidates in to the ground with talk of what is wrong with them, but will then vote for that person in November because they won the primary for "your party".

    The fact of the matter is Parties are in business to remain in control over the business that is Government. Business is usually a good thing, but in this case it is horrible. Parties are what run this country and get things done, notice how the Republicans have changed their agenda all across the country. Three years ago you would have never heard a politician at the federal level mention States Rights, save Ron Paul. All the Republicans threw him under the bus as some crazy right winger during the presidential primaries. Now that same party is shouting States Rights left and right.

    The problem lies with the lack of choice, I am only 26 so I haven't been voting but for 8 years. I can tell you I am tired of going to the polls and picking the lesser of two evils. Now if I am fed up after 8 years where the hell have you older generations been?

    Georgia in particular is one of the most party happy states in that it is next to impossible for a third party/independent candidate to even get on the ballot. Its so ludicrous that if you aren't a dem/repub you have to pay more money. WTF over. We have allowed these parties too much control over our government, and us. The parties are not elected, they are a private entity, yet we have handed them our freedom.

    I must admit, I am shocked yet pleased that Deal will be the Republican nominee. I voted for him in the primary yesterday thinking that he didn't stand a real chance. What are his chances against Barnes in November?
