DEAR EDITOR:

Tim Lee may be a very nice man; however, it appears that like Obama, he is a pro-tax politician. Instead of trying to build a legacy by supporting all sorts of expensive projects, Lee should focus on fiscal responsibility and holding the line on taxes. It appears that Lee is not going to change, so it is time that he was replaced.

I was a supporter of Jack Kingston until I read the MDJ editorial, supporting his election as Georgia’s U.S. Senator. Kingston may be conservative in many respects, but he has been in Congress too long and is part of the Washington Political Establishment that promotes big government.

It is also troubling that Kingston has the support of the Chamber of Commerce rather than businessman David Perdue. Why does an organization that supposedly represents the business industry support a man who has been part of the government establishment that consistently demonstrates being anti-business through passage of egregious regulations that stifle business productivity?

From this voter’s perspective, our federal government is too big for its britches and out-of-control. We need to replace all the Washington bureaucrats with representatives that, when elected, will refuse to pledge their allegiance to the political organized crime faction that is bankrupting America.

I want a senator that Pledges his Allegiance to the American taxpayer. We need senators that are not afraid of taking on Barack Obama and Harry Reid. We need a senator who focuses his energy on putting government on a much needed diet and I believe in giving Perdue the opportunity to fight in getting America back on the track to conservatism and prosperity.

I can appreciate your reasoning regarding the Washington DC "establishment". Jack Kingston was never a member of that "Good Old Boys Club" in DC. David Purdue's cousin, Sonny Purdue may have switched parties to the Republicans but he never switched his stripes. Is it fair to ask, Is his cousin David Purdue cut out of the same mold. He was raised in a dyed in the wool Democrat family. He also knows Georgia presently will not elect a Democrat statewide so the Republican ticket was his only option. Up until his announced candidacy he has never been involved or supported the Republican Party or claimed to embrace conservative principles. At this point in our history with a total incompetent ideologue in the White House, would Georgia and the Country be better served with a tested conservative rather than rather than a untested neophyte.
