First, I am typically not one to be telling folks they should go vote. Truth be told, the only reason I even registered to vote (9 years ago) was because my Wife threatened me (hey, when the wife threatens to hold out, I do as I am told, occasionally). Today, I encourage everyone to vote. That includes not only the Republicans (stop counting your money, it’s not going anywhere, oh wait, unless the Democrats win, but that’s a different issue), but also the Libertarians (if they can stop smoking long enough to look past their noses) and yeah, you too Democrats (ok, so we are not all perfect). (pssst…your suppose to at least smile now)
In Georgia, more so then in regards to who is running is the matter of Imminent Domain. The revision is not as stringent as it needs to be, but perhaps it will help reduce the abuse several Cities are attempting to do with the current law.
I hope that it basically doesn’t matter what political view you have, but together, we must put some restraint upon the State. The Government, no matter if it is local, state or federal, should never ever be allowed the right to take somebody’s hard earned property and turn it over to a developer for the sole reason of increasing their local tax base. Because the only one who profits is the Developer when it is all said and done.
Sometimes, I think we all forget, this is supposed to be a Government for the People and by the People. And sometimes, I think the Politicians need to be reminded of that. So even if you write in Mickey Mouse in place of the candidate, go vote at least for the Laws that are going to impact your way of life.
Take care and have fun folks.
