The 2014 Georgia gubernatorial election will take place on November 4, 2014.

“I am an engineer and innovator who wants to solve problems in the most cost effective ways,” Hunt said. “I work my faith in God to carry out Christ’s teachings of love and not judging people. I firmly believe we need to give people a hand up and reduce handouts. Effectively enabling people to be capable and independent produces less need for social support. I, also, believe we do not need law makers, but instead need law erasers that will restore our freedoms and rights. Government should not determine the ‘right way’ to live life nor restrict personal choices.” Andrew Hunt

Jump aboard the Liberty Train

Opinion by Brock Gallops – Libertarian Activist,  Libertarian Party of the Chattahoochee Valley Vice Chairman

trainFor too long, Georgia citizens have been victim to Big Government. Commonly, Big Government is associated with Democrats but you should not be fooled! Big Government exists in both Republicans and Democrats. The greatest reason for Georgia citizens falling victim to Big Government is Georgia citizens themselves as the culprit.

 
We recently had one of the lowest voter turnouts in history for the May 20th elections. Almost all incumbents were kept in place at least until the General Election on November 4th. We have several career politicians in Georgia with over 30 years of writing senseless laws, telling us what is best, and implementing Big Government into our state.
