Stirrin' the Pot at the Savannah Morning News

Editorial Time Folks.

There's a fair article down at the Savannah Morning News that does a lot of hand wringing about this years choices for Governor. Don't wring your hands and whine about how bad the republican/democrat candidates are, Vote for John Monds!

Here's my response, head down and add your own:

Greetings All,

The third option in this Governor's race is to cast your vote for Liberty and vote for John Monds. As Mr. Petersen points out, your standard red/blue choice is not so palatable this year as both republican Deal and democrat Barnes are suffering from a host of maladies ranging from ethical to arithmetic. Maybe it's time to for Georgians to consider how our state has come to such a sorry pass with such limited choices and take action to ensure it doesn't happen again. 

The absolute best action to take on November 2nd is to vote for Libertarian John Monds for Governor. If 20%+1 of Georgians who vote in this election cycle do that, a transformation will occur in Georgia politics with earth shattering implications for our political future. The voters of this great state have the opportunity to wrest control of the ballot access issue from the legislature and level the playing field for 2012. 5 ballot access bills died still born in our State House and State Senate last year, by voting for John Monds this fall the voters of Georgia can set that right.

If you believe in the American concept of fair play and equality for all, then vote for Libertarian John Monds for Governor. If you're tired of the same old behaviors by the same old politicians at the state house, then vote for John Monds. If you want to move Georgia into the 21st century and unleash our full potential, then vote for John Monds.

  1. And even if Monds doesn't get 20% (the level required by the Georgia law for the Libertarian Party to be on the ballot for all office instead of just the statewide offices), the higher he gets, the easier it will be to overturn the 20% law in court. The median vote test in the 50 states for a party to be ballot-qualified for all office is 2%. It's zero votes in South Carolina, zero votes in Florida, 5% in Tennessee, 2% in North Carolina, zero votes in Mississippi, and 20% for any statewide race in Alabama.
