    So Allen is for:

    – Lower Taxes
    – Education Reform
    – Curbing Eminent Domain

    Wow! So is Sonny Perdue! So vote for someone with an actual chance of winning…

    First off…Buckley isn’t running for Governor. He’s running for Lt. Governor. 

    Sonny Perdue says he is for lower taxes, but as soon as he got into office he proposed one of the largest tax increases in Georgia history.

    The Cato Institute gave Perdue a “D” on fiscal policy.

    Eminent domain was limited, but it still is very favorable to municipalities, thanks to lobbying by the GMA. The new Constitutional Amendment points to general law as to what the criteria is for eminent domain. General law can be changed at any time by an act of the legislature.

    Joe is right. If Sonny Perdue wins the office of Lt. Governor the problems with the electronic voting machines are more serious than we thought.

    That said, Casey Cagle is also for Lower Taxes, Education Reform, and is a strong supporter of property rights.

  4. Philly says:

    Buckley has my vote. For those that can not stomach voting for Cagle, he is a great alternative. He also has great ideas.

    Former Reed supporters can send a message about Cagle’s negative campaign by voting for Buckley.

    Cagle is for whichever the way the wind is blowing at the time. Any man that lies to get elected is not worthy to hold office.

    These are all ambigous campaign statements. Education reform includes making sure the US is last in education in everything.

    Property rights could mean that the gov’t can not hold any land…ok that one sounds not too bad in its own way…

    They are only ambiguous because they are cramped inside a tiny blogad. 🙂 If you visit Allen’s website you’ll find that he has fleshed out his issues in great detail.

  7. CobbGOPer says:

    Doh! Sorry, I had seen the Buckly ad and misread “Governor” for the plainly stated Lt. Governor. I need to go to the eye doctor, apparently.

  8. rugby_fan says:

    Hey Philly, why don’t you just switch parties to the Libertarians. There you will agree with them on the issues and you will never have any negatibe campaigning in the primary.

  9. Maurice Atkinson says:

    Support a team who can actually make a difference for all Georgians. From top down the Republicans have substance to offer the public.

    What substance?
    – Year by year increases in the state budget.
    – Eminent domain reform that was seriously compromised.
    – Squandering the surplus in the state budget.
    – Allowing a gas tax increase.

    If the GOP is the fiscally conservative party in Georgia…then we’re screwed.

  11. Brian from Ellijay says:

    I found two other commercials for Buckley and paid for by Buckley that attack Casey Cagle what do you have to say to that Debbie? I mean Philly…oopps-sorry forgot which name you were posting under.

  12. Bill Simon says:

    Maurice,

    I would agree with you EXCEPT for the office of State School Superintendent. Kathy Cox is a complete f$&@!&*^ moron and I’m voting for David Chastain, Libertarian.

    “Evolution is a buzzword”…yeah, maybe in her neck of the woods.

  13. Philly says:

    Brian, you are the one that likes to post as other names . You are a loser with a capital L. You have succeeded in pissing off many activists in different county parties and political campaigns. I heard that you were even asked to resign your party posts. You are like an albatross everyone seeks to avoid.

    I am not Debbie, I am not Cobb GOPer, I am not GOPeach. When are you going to mature?

    Brian, please post a link to those commercials where Buckly attacks Cagle.

    Bill, be careful, if you don’t support the entire GOP ticket you will be told by rugby fan and others to join the Libertarian party. Well maybe not, those guys seem to have a double standard

  14. RuralDem says:

    What is wrong with you people…. talking about voting the person not the party. That’s impossible. Stop trying to push your agenda down our throats!

    🙂

    Actually, while I do not agree too much with the Libertarian Party, I respect the fact that there are a few people on here who are not caught up in the “gotta vote for the Republican team or Democratic team” idea.

    I honestly wonder what would happen if somehow a liberal Republican and a conservative Democrat faced off in a race. What would you “team” guys do?

  15. Jeff Emanuel says:

    Rural, it would generally come down to the leadership. A vote for a liberal Republican in a national election would still be a vote for Republican leadership in the House or the Senate; likewise, a vote for a conservative Democrat would still result in a vote for Democrat leadership in either.

    The people vote is largely carried out in the primary; by the time nominees are settled on, and the general election rolls around, the vote is usually for the party.

  17. Jeff Emanuel says:

    Gerry, the differences you refer to aren’t really differences — I, like you, am conservative first, Republican second, and don’t have an issue with your reasoning. 🙂
