Unfortunately, the General is lagging behind the Democratic primary, but I ran into a video of him speaking about how shameful it is that 4 of the 6 current Republican primary candidates have said they would support Georgia seceding from the US.
What really offends me the most is that none of these Republican secession candidates ever wore, even for a single day, the uniform of our country, ever carried a weapon, or heard a shot fired in anger. Not one ever put their life on the line to protest our freedoms or liberties.
This video really knocked me out, because it strikes right at the heart of the teabaggers, the Sean Hannitys, and everyone who is lately scoring cheap political points for talking of secession.
I have no connection to the Poythress campaign. I just think that this video simply and powerfully shows that there are excellent Democrats in the South, and I'm glad to hear them speak from time to time.
He describes himself as a moderate Democrat, and I'd imagine he has his own criticisms of Obama (who is not mentioned on the Poythress website, but then again, I suppose governors don't need to come out and comment on a controversial federal climate). Nonetheless, I'd much rather see the General in the governor's mansion instead of Sonny Perdue.
