    And as usual, I bet marky mark will leave a lot bigger ASS print in the sand than Sonny.

    Mainly because he is a bigger ASS than Sonny.

    My hat is off to the artist though, it is a cute depiction.

    Life is Great. The Garrett Hayes campaign bought 400 more ads today. The will be ran in Athens, Clayton, Griffin,Newnan and a few other areas. The great thing is we have learn alot this campaign cycle.I believe the Libertarian party has made a quantum leap in the ability to get out their message and run campaigns.

    who on earth let those fools in Cherokee endorse people. They can hardly read and did you see who the editor and publisher are?

    I thought we lived in a free society where individuals didn’t have to ask permission to print their opinions.

    Gatormathis, I honestly believe you are psychotic and obsessed with Mark Taylor’s weight. I don’t know if you are Cox’s husband and just still trying to defend her, a South GA donor of hers, or if you are just this crazy naturally, but no one ever takes you seriously and your obsession hurts you worse than your opinion hurts Taylor. Seek professional help…..just throwing that out there because you are CREEPY.

    yep I did cause it was crap. Just like the case in Gwinnett. Seems when you look at the facts it bares discussion on the political motives of a sheriff and whether or not the law used is a violation of the first amendment.

    What do you think is the political motivation for(editor of the Cherokee Gazette) Bart Brannon V.C. of the Cherokee County Republican Party to endorce Hayes?

    Was not Bart very outspoken about who was a “real Republican”?

    Did not Bart endorce Tom Price and his out of control spending with the Highway bill, Energy bill, No Child……..?

    Did not Sonny balance the budget unlike Tom Price and Congress?

    With regard to the topic (sort of), Will Warren is a fantastic cartoonist — and I think that that graphic isn’t too unaccurate a representation of the gubernatorial campaign this fall.

  9. conservativecore says:

    John I have read your rants and understand your point. I also notice the similarity between your campaign and that of Democrat John Barrow. I am not going to engage in your lost campaign and continued antics. I was addressing this particular issue. And for those of you who missed it was being a bit sarcastic.

    But since you brought up congressman Price, who are you supporting?

  10. John Konop says:

    BB

    As I said on my blog which is open to all Parties and views, that it would be wrong for me to endorse any candidate. I will speak about any issue. I think it would be a conflict of interest to endorse candidates and sell advertisement to them. That is why I offered Tom Price a free editorial blog like Steve Sinton had even though he did not buy advertisement from me as Sinton did. I also offered Tom Price the same air time Steve Sinton got on my radio show. We even told Tom he could see the question in advance from me.

    I do let other on my site say what they want. I only edit inappropriate language if I catch it. I also told everyone they are free to disagree with me. Bart you are even welcomed to post on my site.

    BTW I am not slamming you for your editorial process at your newspaper. I will say much of what you wrote I do agree with about Hayes. I am just shocked it came from you when you supported Congressman Price who spent us into a 9 trillion dollar debt.

    Also when it comes to spending Sonny looks like a miser compared to Tom Price.

  11. John Konop says:

    conservativecore

    You will not deal with the spending issue and Tom Price, because you have no answer. It is people like you, conservative in name only that are killing the Goldwater movement.

    The reason Sonny may have a run-off and the GOP may not keep the House is due to so called conservatives like yourself.

    The biggest problem with the GOP is not Democrats. It is the GOP has to many in power who think like you do!

  12. conservativecore says:

    You have no idea what I think. Or for whom I voted. What is clear from your rants is that you have little to no idea how governing works. Politics is fun and a contact sport but governing and good governance is the art of compromise.

    I love that statement, about the art of compromise. We Libertarians sometimes struggle with that . If we could get better at that we would win elections more often. BTW Garrett is doing a show with Dennis O hara today. I do not know when it will be shown.I have been told perdue will not be there but Taylor will.

  14. John Konop says:

    conservativecore

    YOU SAID;

    “but governing and good governance is the art of compromise”

    Let me tell you what you project of art called “good governess

  15. hankreardan says:

    Hey Republicans control almost every post for most Georgians. They control the Prez,the house,the senate,the governor ,the state house ,the state senste and most county commisions. John who do we blame.Newt got what he ask for maybe it is time we tried something new. Maybe it is time for people to look at the Libertarians.

  16. hankreardan says:

    BTW to get the thread back online.On wgst 640 they just spent 5 minutes talking about this endorsement at4:15pm

  17. John Konop says:

    I think both parties are bought off by the lobbyist money changers in Washington. The Wall Street Journal did a great article about this topic.

    We need to change the system to make it more open in the primaries as well as third Parties. I would suggest the following;

    3 mandatory debates in primaries and general election on Public TV and Radio for federal and State wide office. The feed should be given to private media where they could play it and sell air time.

    Congressman should be banned from having PACS.

    Ban Corporation and Unions from giving money only U.S. registered voters.

    Lower the signature requirement for third Parties.

    Congressman should only be able to spend money on their own campaign.

    Office holders should only be able to keep 10% of the war chest left over from a campaign. They can donate the rest to charity.

    This is just a few ideas.

    BTW

    I do think the endorcement hurts Sonny because it is in the heart of strong Republican area. I am sure the Hayes camp likes having Bart Brannon the VC of the Republican Party and editor of the newspaper paper as an example of Republicans not happy with out of control spending.

  18. MarkedExcess says:

    The fix is in and Perdue is out. Here’s the (rumored) scenario: Hayes takes enough of a bite out of Perdue to force a Perdue / Taylor run-off.

    Except, Hayes has ALREADY cut a deal to throw his support behind Taylor during the run-off. That, combined with the serious money the Democratic Party is poised to throw at Taylor, and Perdue falls.

    And now “Real Republican

  19. hankreardan says:

    Markedexcess
    You got me as the Libertarian political director I am sitting right now on Mark Taylor’s lap. He has so much he can offer the Libertarian Party (not) .

  20. MarkedExcess says:

    Oh but Taylor does have something to offer. Supposedly, the pay-off is that Hayes gets a job in the Taylor administration and Taylor will change state election rules making it easier for Libertarian candidates to get onto ballots.

    Are you starting to warm up to this deal?

  21. Chris says:

    Supposedly, the pay-off is that Hayes gets a job in the Taylor administration and Taylor will change state election rules making it easier for Libertarian candidates to get onto ballots.

    And open the door for Greens to dilute a Democrat-controlled government? Not on your life.

  22. MarkedExcess says:

    I wouldn’t be so sure. Troubling linkages are already in place. I read here on the Pundit, I think, that “Republican for Sale

  23. Jason Pye says:

    If Taylor were to get elected, the legislature is going to be controlled by the GOP. Ballot access laws can only be changed by the legislature and they aren’t going to do it because Taylor asks them to.

    There is no plot. You have absolutely nothing here.

  24. conservativecore says:

    I knew Bart was a whore dog but did he really raise that kind of cash for Marky Mark? Man that certainly would ad to his tawdry reputation wouldn’t it.

  25. defnotrep says:

    Conservativecore,

    You never respond to the question regarding the huge national deficit which Tom Price voted to do.

    I don’t know why anyone would vote for a Republican incumbent this election on the national level.

  26. gatormathis says:

    “Supposedly, the pay-off is that Hayes gets a job in the Taylor administration and Taylor will change state election rules making it easier for Libertarian candidates to get onto ballots.”

    At the end of the debate, seemed like Garrett Hayes wasn’t to fond of the surmising on his part. Said something about bloodying somebody up I think…….

  27. BB says:

    Konop writes — “That is why I offered Tom Price a free editorial blog like Steve Sinton had even though he did not buy advertisement from me as Sinton did.”

    You might want to let Steve know that he is supposed to report ad buys in his disclosure…or was that an in-kind contribution, one dem helping another?
