…has finally arrived. Brace yourself, people.
Congratulations to Kelly Nelson of Lawrenceville – winner of 2 tickets to Saturday’s UGA vs. Arkansas game. Kelly shared her idea to Make Georgia Work and was entered for a chance to score tickets to the game.
As a small business owner, Kelly’s idea was to align our state tax structure with our “buy local” campaign, to further encourage Georgians to support Georgia businesses.
Gripping….kinda. But ‘ol Roy just can’t seem to bring himself around to saying “cut taxes.” No sir, it’s got to be that we have to “align our state tax structure.” Here’s an idea: let’s just cut taxes across the board and cut spending and let people decide where they want to spend their money! Then we don’t have to worry about such myopic economic concepts like “buy Georgia” and can instead just permit free(r) markets to handle the rest.
I wonder, though, if this means it’ll be cheaper to buy booze from a liquor store on Sunday in Georgia if Barnes wins since we’d be supporting a “local business”…hmmm.
[UPDATE] Otis Campbell e-mails in to note that he is going to support Barnes if it means cheaper booze.
