Pappa Joe at the AJC says there's gonna be 20 cops at Hank Johnson's Town Hall tonite. That should cut down on the skulduggery in the parking lot over there in Clarkston. Had to comment, see you there!

Welcome back Mr. Galloway,
I trust your fishing expedition was successful and whatever you caught will be able to grow in length and girth as time passes.
We have to admit the current outbreaks of civil disbelief and naughtiness at Town Hall’s around the country have caught us flat footed over here at the secret underground Libertarian Command Center (LCC). We had considered holding a small “Tail Gate for Liberty” Party in the parking lot over at Georgia Perimeter College to help celebrate Rep. Johnson’s town hall tonight, but it seems that a permit is required and that costs money and you have to fill out forms and stuff like that.
Then one of our media sleuths pointed out the post over at Blog for Democracy that you mentioned and we were taken aback by the deviousness of some of our democratic brothers in their suggestions of methods to control the event, intimidate the citizens and deny the people their voice. The bit about turning off the AC was classic. Nothing like a couple of hundred hot, sweaty, thirsty constituents crowded into a stifling auditorium to listen to a member of the US House drone on endlessly to promote good feelings all around.
So we have decided to dispatch a micro mobile polling group to the event tonight to try to get a feel for the mood over there in the 4th district. We’ll ask a couple of yes/no questions, get a gauge of the feelings of the crowd, do an informal nose count of citizens denied entry to the steaming hot auditorium and get some cell phone vids of anything interesting. If any of your readership plans on attending as an agitator for either side, please talk to the guys wearing Joker Facepaint to be sure your story gets told.
All of this would be unnecessary if Georgia’s 1934 Jim Crow ballot access laws were revoked/rescinded/repealed or if the current Secretary of State bothered to read Title 10 and Title 21 of the Official Code of Georgia. As long as the Republicans and Democrats have a lock on ballot access, they will continue to treat all Georgians with disdain and disrespect.
So, see you at the Town Hall parking lot tonight! Support the Constitution, Defend the Republic, Vote Libertarian!
