I’m a big fan of property rights and free speech, and like many of us I use my vehicle to express opinions, whether it be for candidates, causes or whatever. But what I don’t like are people who think it is perfectly reasonable to remove yard signs off of someone’s private property (yes, I’m looking at you, Ester Fleming) or a supporter of some corrupt candidate that puts a bumper sticker on my vehicle (for the second time) without my permission while I’m sitting inside the Truett’s in McDonough. I know, I know, a campaign can’t control their supporters, but I’m a little tired of it.
You know, there are reasons I don’t like Nathan Deal. He used the power of his office to secure no bid contracts with the state, he believes sin taxes are perfectly fine, he isn’t particularly fond of brown people (even using a BS study by a group founded by this guy for his rhetoric) and “ghetto grandmothers” and TEH GAYZ™…OMG TEH GAYZ™ ARE EVIL!1!!
And ironically, they put the sticker right between my AntiWar.com (and we know Deal loves him some war) and Mark Twain stickers, with the latter having the author’s famous quote: “Suppose you are an idiot. And suppose you are a member of Congress. But I repeat myself.”
Well, Deal isn’t a member of Congress anymore, but it certainly rings true in his case.
And by the way, Georgia Republicans, congrats to you for substituting one corrupt candidate for another. You guys keep picking real winners. If these are the sort of people you want to represent your party, you should get used to saying Governor Roy Barnes.
Don’t take this me encouraging you on how to vote on July 20th, because to be perfectly honest with you, I don’t care. The top three in this race have been nothing short of disappointing.
[Addition] I forgot to mention that Deal also voted for Medicare Part D (an expansion of an already massive entitlement) and all of Bush’s bloated budgets (what good is a tax cut if you’re spending like Lyndon Johnson?). And let’s not forget his embarrassing pursuit of President Barack Obama’s birth certificate.
