Now it is the voters turn

November 1, 2010 1 comment

Now that all of the political ads have run. After all the pundits have prognosticated, and  all the polls have predicted, it is now time for the voter to have his/her say. The voters have to decide what is best for the country, the state, and the district. Neither of the major parties has all the answers. If any one of them did we would not be in the mess we are in now.  In fact the answers lie somewhere in between the the three big boys. There are reasonable people in most parties, but it is the outspoken who command the attention of voters.  Ignore them, for the represent all that is bad in political parties. Party loudmouths and their supporters will vote for corrupt and incompetence just to stay loyal to the party.  A stupid Democrat is a stupid Democrat why put him/her in office. A corrupt Republican is a corrupt Republican. Why choose him/her just because they have an (R) behind their name. When I walk into that booth on Tuesday, I am going to vote for the person who I feel has a vision that is closely inline with the way I think the country should be moving. Party affiliation is not an issue. I challenge all of you to do the same. Don’t ignore or support a candidate based on party alone. If you do you do so you may get that corrupt (R) or that incompetent (D) running things for the next few years or so.

Governor’s race – The candidates

March 31, 2010 Comments off

I have been spewing a lot about the congressional races that affect South DeKalb, but have neglected the race for the CEO of the great state of Georgia. So here they are with some campaign sites and my take on each of course. my list is not exhuastive. for the complete list of the governors race as well as others check out this page from the Sec. of States website

Democrats

  • Thurbert Baker, Smart guy, knows his stuff, needs to fix his cut though. Can he win? No. Not because he is not qualified, but because history says he can’t win.
  • Roy Barnes, The former head man is qualified; after all he has held the job before. Can he win? Of course he can win, but he won’t
  • Carl Camon, I didn’t know who this was until I started this list. His bio suggests a hard worker who was not privileged like some of the other candidates. Can he win? No. Small town mayor ain’t enough to overcome the history that says he can’t win.
  • DuBose Porter, This guy seems squeaky clean. Church man, Eagle Scout, family man, all great things. Can he win? Maybe. He might be a dark horse, if he doesn’t have any skeletons.
  • David Poythress, I like this guy. He is a military man, although it is was the Air Force. It is hard to go wrong with a military man. He has been in many leadership positions. Can he win? I think he could go all the way and get beat by any Republican.

Republicans

  • Jeff Chapman, Can he win? I don’t know. Probably not. But who knows. He does have the best website of all the candidates.
  • Nathan Deal, I wonder if this ethics thing has any legs? Can he win? Polling says he is competitive, and would beat Roy Barnes if he were the Republican candidate and Barnes was the  Democrat choice.
