  1. Traitorious no good for nothing yankees and others coming down South to say we don’t have a right to name government installations for great Southern Generals, especially when they are in the South, and we have already paid so much more because our south was destroyed by the war and had to be rebuilt. If the South does rise again it will not be too soon.

  2. APPROXIMATELY THREE (3) PERCENT OF THE LIKELY VOTERS IN GEORGIA —-PRIORITIZE SAVING CONFEDERATE MONUMENTS AND OTHER VESTIGES OF CONFEDERATE HISTORY .
    LOWERING TAXES AND ELIMINATING THE STATE INCOME TAX MAY BE AT THE VERY TOP OF VOTING PRIORITIES , BUT THOSE WHO ARE AWARE THAT THEIR PROGENITORS SERVED IN THE CONFEDERATE ARMY , ETC. HAVE AN EMOTIONAL LINK TO THAT HISTORY AND ARE INSULTED BY THOSE WHO DEMEAN IT .
    FORMER U S SENATOR DAVID PERDUE SUPPORTED LEGISLATION TO REMOVE ALL VESTIGES OF THE CONFEDERACY FROM FEDERAL. MILITARY INSTALLATIONS, ETC .
    PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP VETOED THAT LEGISLATION.
    FORMER U S SENATOR DAVID PERDUE THEN VOTED TO OVERRIDE TRUMP’s VETO .

    GOVERNOR BRIAN KEMP PRESENTLY LEADS DAVID PERDUE BY AN ELEVEN (11) PERCENT MARGIN IN THE REPUBLICAN GUBERNATORIAL PRIMARY .

    THE SOUTH REMEMBERS YOUR TRANSGRESSION MR. PERDUE .

    • Sent this to Donald Trump about Perdue running for governor.
      “As a Georgia resident, I understand your dissatisfaction with the outcome of the 2020 presidential vote in Georgia. I have yet to see conclusive proof of significant vote tampering in our state. Your failure to endorse Brian Kemp for governor and Herschel Walker for the US Senate are disturbing and seems to be blindly driven by their failure to support you on every issue and agenda. Your continuing negative comments do nothing to ensure Georgia retains a Republican governor. Stating you prefer Stacey Abrams to Brian Kemp is lunatic vindictiveness.

      David Perdue was a rich, boring, old-guard senator who accomplished little other than supporting your presidency and appearing to abuse insider information about the pandemic. He did not connect with any group other than rich old white Republicans, and that is why he lost his seat to Warnock. He will not defeat Stacey Abrams if nominated.

      Not endorsing Herschel Walker to unseat Warnock is another tactical error. No other Republican candidate will defeat Warnock. This election will hinge on name recognition, age, and most importantly, race. Old rich white guys need not apply, and trust me, I’m an old white guy.

      Thanks for your service and sacrifice while in office.”

      • PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS ENDORSED HERSCHEL WALKER FOR U S SENATOR AND MADE GREAT EFFORTS TO PERSUADE HIM TO RUN .
        I BELIEVE THAT 34 IS LEADING IN ALL POLLS AND HAS A 64 PERCENT LEAD IN THE POLLS AT THIS TIME .

  3. Thanks for the info about Perdue. I had already planned to vote for Kemp because he has done a good job. It’s curious to me that Perdue is running against Kemp. Why? He is 72 years old. Does he just need something to do; has a lust for power? Mr Perdue: go play with your grandkids.
