Should Georgia exempt itself from federal law?
AJC ^ | 2/21/2012 | Kristina Torres

The measure has the backing of the Senate's top two leaders -- President Pro Tem Tommie Williams, R-Lyons, and Senate Majority Leader Chip Rogers, R-Woodstock -- who have signed on as co-sponsors.

"The federal government has excessively abused the authority of state and local governments for some time," Albers said, explaining why he sponsored the proposal.

SR 889 has been assigned to the Senate Judiciary Committee.

We still can vote which is imperative.

We just have to be active and sway the majority of people in the debates. Now if the super majority of people do not want freedom, then I would say it’s time to leave.

The last thing you ever want is a war. Nothing good comes from it. Yes we did end conflicts, but new ones arise. How many wars have there been? If war was the answer to all our issues, then there would be no war. It’s only a temporary fix.

Please do not misconstrue me to think I’m some sort of pacifist. I’m not, and absolutely believe in the defending yourself when attacked. It’s your moral duty as a human being to protect what God has created. Just saying it’s just one of the things in life that you do not want to do. It’s sickens my gut to even have that though cross my mind.

The majority of the people are now in the South. This is based on the old Mason Dixon line and the former Confederate States of America.

Huh? Your math is off. Nowhere even close.
