To perpetuate the principles of free government, insure justice to all, preserve peace, promote the interest and happiness of the citizen and of the family, and transmit to posterity the enjoyment of liberty, we the people of Georgia, relying upon the protection and guidance of Almighty God, do ordain and establish this Constitution.
                 Preamble to the Georgia Constitution


God-Given Rights

Our Founding Fathers recognized our basic rights, such as Life, Liberty and Private Property, were bestowed on mankind by God, not by government.  Governments may choose to interfere with or protect those rights.  Our national, state and local governments all interfere too much with our rights. 

The proper role of government is to protect (not provide) the Life, Liberty and Private Property of the citizenry.

We can run our lives and businesses better than government can.

Tax Reform

Georgia should implement a state-appropriate version of the FairTax as Georgia’s main tax. 

The elimination of the corporate income tax is the surest and simplest way to incentivize job creation and improve the strength of Hall County’s and Georgia’s economy.  Businesses will stay and grow in Georgia and new businesses will want to move to Georgia due to the favorable tax treatment.  Jobs will be plentiful and our manufacturing base will be restored.  And corporations don’t pay taxes, they simply pass that on to us as consumers as part of the price of their product. 

The elimination of the personal income tax will promote family productivity and savings.  We should allow families and individuals to provide for themselves by not taking away the fruit of their labor.

Eliminate all property taxes.  Once a mortgage is paid off, the owners should always be secure in their property rights.  Property taxes are rent paid to the government – we should not have to rent our homes from any government!  We must be free to rise above serfdom!


I support life from conception to natural death. 

This is one of the few areas where I believe government does have a right to intervene – to protect life. 

I have only one caveat to my position:  I do support the death penalty for those crimes where it has been allowed by law.

Second Amendment

The Constitution is clear:  “…the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”

Lake Lanier Water Rights

Rain that falls on Georgia belongs to Georgia:  not Alabama, not Florida and not Washington, DC.

Georgia Budget

Georgia should adopt a zero-based budgeting process where every department has to justify every dime of taxpayer money received every year.  We should ensure we have people involved in the oversight process who have demonstrated their own ability to handle their personal budgets well prior to overseeing the budgets of our state.

We should also eliminate departments and jobs that are no longer needed.  Most large businesses have spent time downsizing and eliminating unnecessary positions over the past few years – why hasn’t that same principle been applied to state government in a widespread manner?


A child’s education should be based on the choices and control of parents, not bureaucrats. 

I support vouchers for every child in Georgia that would be unrestricted in their use for home schools, private schools, Christian schools or public schools. 

Free Market Solutions

Less government regulation is good for jobs, businesses, individuals and the economy.  He may overstate the case, but I like Harry Browne’s statement:  “The government is good at one thing…it knows how to break your legs, and then hand you a crutch and say ‘see, if it weren’t for the government, you wouldn’t be able to walk.’”
