Did Gregory miss memo about Romney?

DEAR EDITOR: Just what the GOP supporters need — a newly elected state rep from Kennesaw, Charles Gregory, complaining to all about his disenchantment with the GOP process.

Could it be that he and other Ron Paul supporters did not get the memo that Mitt Romney was the choice as nominee for the party? Full support by ALL who attended the convention would have been a novel concept as this election will most assuredly be one of the most important of our lives. Unity is a necessity to strengthen our party and win this election in November and disparaging remarks will not help our cause.

I cannot help but wonder how Mr. Gregory would have felt if those celebrating at his victory party were chanting for his opposition.

Casting aspersions on one’s own party is surely not a way to influence voters.

The State of the GOP is the scariest it has been in a lifetime. There are few things that concern me more than what will happen if one of them gets a chance to drive us into the ground. But, this won't get fixed until the GOP platform is changed, and we start to see some honest candidates emerging. Ron Paul could have been one of those candidates IMO, but the platform will never except him. Perhaps it is time that the GOP thought about the impact 40 years of moving the country right has had; Nixon would have been a democrat by today's standards.

Perhaps Mr. Gregory is willing to put his country before his party? I didn't get to vote for Mr. Gregory because I'm not in his district however, I supported him for this very reason. I like so many other who have held our noses and supported the Republicans are sick of it. Holding our nose, towing the line and stepping up voting for candidates like Romney just to get Obama out is precisely what has put our country in the state that it's in and I for one will no longer follow the "Lesser of two evils" strategy. These people work for us and it's time we put them back in line and get back to the Constitution and the Bill of rights instead of accepting the Big Govt or Bigger Govt parties constant assault on our country and our liberties.

I voted for this man, not because he was a Ron Paul supporter, but because it was time for Judy to go.

The assertion that he campaigned in any way can't be right. I'd never even heard his name or saw one sign, but he was the right man at the right time.

He will be marginalized if he doesn't learn to play nice, and his constituents will be without representation, but then the legislature doesn't do much worthwhile anyway, so I can't imagine he'll do harm. And then we'll find someone to replace him next time. If only the Paulites would assume some manners....they're an ungrateful bunch even when they win.

Obviously, you were not a part of the GOP convention process, Ms. Fisher, or you would feel very differently. Perhaps you should get involved.

I feel like I was hoodwinked into voting for this man. What a disaster! If someone gets up a write-in candidate for the National election, count me in. But to make a point, he will never get another vote from me.

"Feel cheated," you wern't hoodwinked!

You liked what Gregory campaigned on until you discovered that these were Ron Paul ideas.

Gregory has good ideas to present to the Georgia General Assembly.

Yeah, all his talk about "limited government" and fiscal responsibility is scary thing, isn't it, Feel cheated?

I swear, I am stunned by the number of brain dead "republicans" like Jonna Fisher and Feel cheated. It is clear that their distaste for the way many Ron Paul supports behave has blinded them from ever hearing the message of limited government and fiscal responsibility that Ron Paul and Mr. Gregory preach. For goodness sake republicans, stop acting like you have no rational brain in your pea heads.
