Big Egos Changed Georgia’s Political Landscape
It can no longer be ignored that all politics are truly local. With a Republican Governor, Assembly, and Senate, Georgia has a two-year window to get redistricting done if there’s any hope of continuing the fight. Egos are the worst enemy of any political party. Former Senator Johnny Isakson’s ego started the problem by not quitting the Senate when his disease was first manifest, hanging on to the last minute. It was no secret; everybody knew a problem existed.
When Johnny quit, Governor Kemp faced a quandary, who to appoint to fill the short six months remaining of his term. Egos again! Rep Doug Collins (Ga-9), who was slowly tarnishing his conservative voting record (75%) by joining the GOP elite House leadership, decided he should be Johnny’s replacement, and he threw it all away to go after it. I don’t fault Doug for pursuing his ambitions, but it really wasn’t a well thought out plan. The governor didn’t want him for some reason; he couldn’t accept.
For some other reason absolutely unknown to most Georgians, Gov Kemp selected a very wealthy woman no one ever heard of, Kelly Loeffler, to fill the post, Doug Collins became, in an instant, Gov Kemp’s enemy so to speak, and that divided the Georgia Republican Party.
So, what is the GOP’s main quandary? It has to be a change in tactics. We can no longer view politics through past eyes. The Marxists are sweeping the board because they do not play by the rules, and we do, and they’ve brought enough weakling GOP’ers to their way of thinking to tilt the board in their favor. We must keep the peace, don’t you agree? The Constitution means nothing to American Marxists unless it supports their political position.
It would be instructive to know why Kemp really selected Kelly Loeffler. Money? In her unremarkable six months, she did have a 100% conservative voting record. Still, nothing really to overcome her Democrat opponent, the Marxist, Raphael Warnock, except the Georgia Dems worked hard to get the black vote, and we didn’t! Now, look where that’s got us.
Governor Kemp’s action in the National Election places him in the “Never Trump” column and his re-election, even from this distance in time, looks doubtful.
What Conservative today, black or white, can stand up to the remarkable achievement of the sure-fire Democrat choice for Governor in 2024, Stacy Abrams? Who do we have? Doug Collins, because he wants that too? Maybe, but I don’t really think so; too many hard feelings within the ranks.
Under Trump, the GOP had remarkable success in selling the American dream to some astute, politically savvy, industrious Black leaders, including pastors, actually to sway the vote. Trump won! In Georgia, many were seen in the political ads that swamped our TV’s up to the January run-off election in support of both Republican candidates. The Georgia GOP also has some outstanding black leaders who could fill the role of challenging Stacy Abrams. Sad that Herman Cain is no longer with us, but that shouldn’t stop our search.
For Conservatives out here, can you think of any old Republican that can run for governor and win? Maybe, but we must also turn our eyes to the growing bevy of Young Republicans now entering the ranks as active conservatives bearing the Republican label. That won’t last if the geriatric establishment does not support them. We now have two Republican party’s, Trump’s and the other one. Up here in Ellijay, Ga., political activist Joe McCutchen is mentoring an outstanding group of young conservatives in his leadership course. County parties everywhere should follow his example and organize those youths eager to make America great again.
Remember, freedom is the goal; the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ’em!
