Georgia Senate Candidates stand on Abortion Issue
The four Georgia Republicans who want to succeed retiring Sen. Saxby Chambliss all call themselves conservatives who oppose abortion.
Two are congressmen who recently voted in favor of a House bill to outlaw nearly all abortions beyond the 20th week after conception. Another candidate, a former secretary of state with her own national profile in the abortion debate, expressed support for the bill. Meanwhile, Rep. Paul Broun, an obstetrician, voted against the measure, saying it didn't go far enough. That vote put him alongside abortion-rights advocates yet it garnered a de facto endorsement from a leading anti-abortion group in Georgia.
Broun, a conservative who has called President Barack Obama a Marxist and who drew national attention last year when he declared evolutionary theory "lies from the pit of hell," defends his outlier vote - just six Republicans voted against the bill - because the proposal contains exceptions for pregnancies that result from rape or incest.
As he put it: "I am extremely disappointed that House Republican leadership chose to include language to subject some unborn children to needless pain and suffering."
In the Republican primary, abortion probably won't be the only consideration for most voters. But it could affect the result in a crowded primary field in which the margins likely will be close and a runoff could be needed.
But the group's state affiliate, Georgia Right to Life, praised Broun. In a letter posted on the organization's website, President Dan Becker called out Gingrey and Kingston as "Georgia politicians who say one thing and vote another." Becker then went on to issue a de facto endorsement, saying "Let's elect (Broun) our new U.S. senator."
Suzanne Ward, a state Right to Life executive, said the Georgia group doesn't worry about election outcomes. "It's never wrong to do the right thing," she said. "We don't set our standard on political winds. Our standards are based on the word of God, and that doesn't change."
It's not the first time Georgia Right to Life has roiled Republican races. The group clashed with Handel during the 2010 governor's race, refusing to endorse her because she supports some exceptions to abortion bans. Handel lost a close Republican runoff
Republican Party Referendum Questions
1. Should Georgia have casino gambling with the funds going to education?
These 5 referendum will appear on Republican Ballots
2. Do you support ending the current practice of unlimited gifts from lobbyists to state legislators by imposing a $100 cap on such gifts?
3. Should active duty military personnel who are under the age of 21 be allowed to obtain a Georgia weapons license?
4. Should citizens who wish to vote in a primary election be required to register by their political party affiliation at least thirty (30) days prior to such primary election?
5. Should the Constitution of Georgia be amended so as to provide that the paramount right to life is vested in each innocent human being from his or her earliest biological beginning without regard to race, sex, health, function or condition of dependency?
Note: These questions are an opinion poll for the Republican Party. A yes or no majority vote will not change any laws; it will instead give party officials some understanding of the constituents’ opinions.
T-SPLOST Transportation referendum
Poll reflects evenly divided results.
Fifty-one percent of voters polled this past week in the 10-county Atlanta region said they would reject the 1 percent sales tax, which would fund $7.2 billion worth of road, rail and bus projects. The main project list was negotiated last year by a panel of 21 mayors and county commissioners from across the region.
Debbie Dooley, co-founder of the Atlanta Tea Party, called the transit projects boondoggles and said the tax violates the state constitution’s home-rule provision because it could impose a tax in a county where voters rejected the measure.
“We don’t trust the elected officials to spend the tax dollars they have now,” Dooley said. “We think the project list is fiscally irresponsible, and about economic development, not congestion.”
Sales Taxes For Roads, - Atlanta Area
Atlanta area political and business leaders have a solution to traffic that’s ranked among the worst in the U.S.: Ask voters to approve a sales tax increase to raise $8.5 billion over a decade for roads and public transportation.
That plan, to be considered on July 31 by voters in 10 counties that include Atlanta and its suburbs, isn’t an easy sell. Groups that normally have little in common have joined together to campaign against the tax: anti-government Tea Party activists, civil rights leaders from the NAACP and environmentalists from the Sierra Club.

Pro Life Amendment
Many Georgia Republicans want the chance to vote to amend the constitution to protect life. The proposal will appear on the Republican primary ballot next Tuesday.
The fifth question is: “Shall the Constitution of Georgia be amended so as to provide that the paramount right to life is vested in each innocent human being from his or her earliest biological beginning without regard to age, race, sex, health, function, or condition of dependency?” In summary, this question speaks to what is called “The Human Life Amendment.”
Susan Ward of Georgia Right to Life tells One News Now it is about the human rights issue of the century.
"Specifically the amendment reads this way: 'Should the constitution of Georgia be amended so as to provide that the paramount right to life is vested in each innocent human being from his or her earliest biological beginning without regard to age, race, sex, health, function or condition of dependency,'" Ward explains.
A majority vote of yes will not force the state to act.
"That's correct," she says. "It is not a binding vote, but it does send a loud and clear message to our legislators here in Georgia that Georgians are by and large pro-life and that we want laws that protect all human life."
To amend the constitution, Georgia lawmakers must pass the measure for it to appear on a future ballot in the form of a proposed constitutional amendment. Only then will Georgia voters have a chance to decide the issue.
Many people expected a flurry of activity as various groups lined up to take advantage of the opportunity to change the direction of the Court in just one election. With a majority of the Court at play, a variety of interest groups of all persuasions started to vet potential candidates as a slate to challenge all four incumbents.
After all, with most other constitutional officers, including the governor, lieutenant governor, secretary of state and attorney general not up for election until 2014, the Georgia Supreme Court Justices are the highest-ranking elected Georgia officials up for election in 2014. Electing four would be tantamount to electing a governor or a speaker.
Then, things changed. Carley announced his retirement from the Georgia Supreme Court, opening up an appointment for Gov. Nathan Deal to Georgia’s highest court. Carley’s decision had two significant impacts.
First, it left three justices up for election in 2014, not four - the majority.
Second, and more importantly, for lawyers who want to serve on the Georgia Supreme Court this provided an easier path than challenging an incumbent justice in a contested election.
As a result, while some might have expected some heightened interest in the Georgia Supreme Court positions, especially given the controversy arising out of several of the supreme court’s decisions over the last couple of years, it did not happen. Instead, when qualifying ended, each of the incumbent justices qualified for reelection without any opposition.
This was a pattern that repeated itself through most of the 2014 judicial elections. The same pattern occurred for the Court of Appeals judgeships. There were six judges on the Court of Appeals facing reelection in 2014. They included Judges Keith Blackwell, Michael Boggs, Stephen Dillard, John Ellington, Yvette Miller, and Herbert Phipps. No one qualified against any of them.
Notably, the lack of opposition was not a political party kind of thing, where only judges from one party or the other were up for re-election. Instead, for the Georgia Supreme Court, two were Democratic appointed justices (Hunstein and Thompson) and one Republican appointed justice (Melton). On the Court of Appeals, it was an even split, with three Republican appointees - two by Gov. Sonny Perdue, and one by Deal - and three Democratic appointees – Ellington, Miller, and Phipps. None garnered opposition.
So, regardless of the reasons, Georgia’s appellate judicial elections were decided on qualifying day this year. With so much weight on incumbency in the judicial election landscape, Governor Deal’s appointments to the appellate courts when vacancies occur carry with them an even greater weight.
Georgia Superior Court Judges Conservative Candidates Election 2014
Well over 100 Georgia Superior Court judgeships will also be on the ballot. Like the appellate court, an overwhelming number of incumbent judges qualified for reelection without opposition, but there were a few notable exceptions.
Of course, in addition to the Appellate Courts and Superior Courts, there is a whole host of other courts - from state courts to magistrate courts to probate courts. Yet, consistently, the pattern was the same. With a few exceptions, incumbents qualified without opposition which means - again - that each of these elections was decided on qualifying day rather than on election day

Georgia Conservative State Wide, Legislature and Congress Candidates 2014 Voting Guide
The 2014 election cycle offers Georgian's an unprecedented opportunity to re-shape the Georgia Supreme Court by electing a slate of pro-family pro-life conservatives to the bench. Three maybe four seats are open seats and will provide conservatives the best opportunity in recent history to align our court within the parameters of Justices whose values reflect those of the majority of Georgians.
History of Georgia - What every Congress man of should know
The conflict between Spain and Great Britain over control of Georgia began in earnest in about 1670, when the British colony of South Carolina was founded just north of the missionary provinces of Guale and Mocama, part of Spanish Florida. Guale and Mocama, today part of Georgia, lay between Carolina's capital, Charles Town, and Spanish Florida's capital, St. Augustine. They were subjected to repeated military invasions by both sides.
The Spanish mission system was permanently destroyed by 1704. The coast of future Georgia was occupied by British-allied Yamasee Indians until they were decimated in the Yamasee War of 1715–1717. The surviving Yamasee fled to Florida, leaving the coast of Georgia depopulated, making formation of a new British colony possible. A few defeated Yamasee remained and later became known as the Yamacraw.
The Campaign for Georgia - Calendar Magnets
English settlement began in the early 1730s after James Oglethorpe, a Member of Parliament, promoted the area be colonized with the worthy poor of England, to provide an alternative to the overcrowded debtors' prisons. Oglethorpe and other English philanthropists secured a royal charter as the Trustees of the colony of Georgia on June 9, 1732. The misconception of Georgia's having been founded as a debtor or penal colony persists due to the numerous English convicts who were sentenced to transportation to Georgia. With the signs motto, "Not for ourselves, but for others," the Trustees selected colonists for Georgia. On the calendar February 12, 1733, the first settlers arrived in the ship Anne, at what was to become the city of Savannah.
In 1742 the colony was invaded by Spanish forces during the War of Jenkins' Ear. Oglethorpe mobilised local forces and defeated the Spanish at the Battle of Bloody Marsh. The Treaty of Aix-la-Chapelle, which ended the war, confirmed the English position in Georgia.
