  •  The problem with Georgia is that it is a (0+ / 0-)

    socialist state. Democrats really have nothing to offer that people don't get from Republicans (money from Washington and home rule). The people are antagonistic towards socialism because they identify it with nationalism, being ruled by the federal government. Democrats relying on Washington to guarantee and promote individual rights is not particularly appealing. Georgia has an income tax and routinely has voter-approved special option sales taxes to pay for roads, schools, parks, docks, resort areas, etc.

    We all know that the red states get more money out of Washington. But, you know, that's how it should be because, after all, Washington is where the money is, literally, made. The fifty states have long been in the situation, which the Euro countries have just recently set up for themselves -- dependent on a super agency for the issuance and management of currency. And it's causing the countries of Europe the same problems our fifty states have.

    We organize governments to deliver services and prevent abuse.
