I Love My State (Vanity RANT - Warning - emotional)
Georgia ^ | 06/27/11 | Ard

Posted on 06/27/2011 3:10:39 PM PDT by arderkrag

I apologize in advance, but I have to get this out of my system.

I LOVE MY STATE.

I love everything about it, like the unique culture. The wonderful Georgia landscape. The agrarian Southern values and tradition.

The absolute refusal to go along just because a bully has a gun to our heads.

It’s been said that history is replete with turning points. While true, the one staring us as a state in the eye is a crucial one - whether or not to enforce the law of the land. Our federal overseers have consistently failed, time and again, to repel the silent invasion of our sacred property by those refusing to enter this country legally. Aiding them is the media-driven mantra that seeks to make this fight about race, about honest, hardworking innocents that

Race isn’t even part of the equation.

We have laws concerning passage into this country. If the federal government does not enforce those laws, the states must, a with all laws. The federal government is currently being chaired by people gleefully presiding over our financial demise, who have no interest in defending this nation.

It is with a breaking heart that I say this, but if the blind people in this country re-elect the purely evil plague that currently occupies the White House, the then country will have gone where I cannot follow, and I will support her actions no longer until she rights herself. My first loyalty remains to my state, a brilliantly beautiful star in distress, fighting to stay alive.

God bless Georgia. Please, Lord, give us the Wisdom, Courage, and Moderation to see this through.

Heck, I AGREE with you.

Unfortunately, my state...Washington...went over to the dark side several years ago. It just took me a while to figure it out. Everything I stand for is reflected in how I vote. But, how I vote (and, as it turns out, how 70% of the REST of the state votes) is nullified by the two counties to the north of me. Those counties have the biggest populations, and they are filled to the brim with the brain-dead.

I love my state for mountainous granduer, the thick, green forests, and for the memories of my youth.

Beyond that...I think I’s rather live in Texas. At least THEY are still free.

Tip of the hat from your Alabama neighbor. We have family in Georgia and also spend a good bit of time in the North Georgia Mountains. Beautiful state!

Atlanta was lost years ago. I can’t stand it when people call it the “Capital of the South” when it has so many people that want to leave Southern Culture behind infesting it. For all of Augusta’s flaws, it embraces its heritage much more closely.

Time for a little joke folks


...What is Pennsylvania? Pittsburgh at one end, Philly on the other and ALABAMA in the middle...Georgia is alot like that Atlanta in the middle and you have the rest of the state. Now before we get some self righteous and self serving Northern bigots chiming in, I moved here from NY and would NEVER go back (unless in chains or a pine box!)


If you have never been here, you don't know it or US so please enjoy a hot fresh cup of STFU and enjoy gay marriage and $8 a pack smokes in NY!

I too am a Georgian, and if someone can explain to me how to teach my kids and grandkids that they have to obey our laws but these other folks sneaking into our country without any penalty at all. And, have you noticed that those that break our immigration laws also seem to think that it’s ok to pick and choose only the laws they want to obey.

“Beyond that...I think I’s rather live in Texas. At least THEY are still free.”

Georgia is much less infiltrated with illegals than Texas and yet, has taken a step which Texas has not attempted.
I too, absolutely agree with the poster.

I'm in your same boat same state. It's very frustrating but I feel better by not entering or buying any thing from either county. We purposely stay away from them and visit and spend in the others.

Hey as a former Mass-hole, I resemble that remark. Although I'd say that since I've spent the majority of last 22 years in places other than the north east that the Yankee in me has mostly died off. The only thing I still claim from my former home is their sports teams (go B's, Pats, C's and Sox).

I’m with ya. Governor Nathan Deal needs to stand up and announce that a Federal Judge does not have jurisdiction over a sovereign state. The Constitution is very clear. Go tell it to the Supremes. We need to go ahead and put our immigration law into effect ASAP.

Everybody in GA email or call or write the Governor and tell him to stand up and ignore the Federal activist Judges’s ruling.

I have driven through your beautiful state several times and actually spent a week-end in Augusta many years ago. I feel the same way about my own state of North Carolina. We are similar to Georgia, except that we have more than one liberal bastion in what is basically a conservative southern state - mainly the RTP (Research Triangle Park) cities of Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill.

Despite the fact that he is focusing on NC and the Dems have planned their convention for Charlotte, Obama has no real chance of winning NC in 2012 IMO. He only eked out a 10,000 vote victory in 2010 when he was still an unknown quantity. Up until 2010 NC had not gone Democratic since Jimmy Carter. The Republicans now hold both houses for the first time in 140 years and have been busy trying to do exactly what they said they would do during the campaign, while our Democrat governor tries to stop them by vetoing one good bill after the other.

I have worked for the state of NC for almost 30 years and this year was the first year that I can remember in which the legislature actually completed the budget before the new fiscal year begins on July 1. The governor vetoed it, but her veto was easily overridden.

Me too. This whole thing is BS. Since the illegals have been leaving in droves its been great in our area. We don’t want them back. Let NC enjoy them for awhile.

I bumped into a few seniors today that are eager to kick ass.
