Rockdale Tea Party
Saturday, October 2nd – 11:00 AM until 3:00 PM
Pine Log Park
Hwy 138 and Pine Log Drive
Conyers, 30012

The state’s Libertarian candidate for governor, John Monds, will be there. He’s polling at 5% in a race in which the GOP and Dem candidates are very close. He won’t win, but a Libertarian spoiler would send a powerful message to the GOP with a 5% showing.

I"m going to be out of town that day unfortunately. There is just no way I can be there. :(

Anyway, for those that have been wanting to talk to John Monds in person, ask him questions, get a feel for him, now is you chance. I'll understand if some of you live too far away, but for some on here this wouldn't be a bad drive. Plus you're already a protest rally, who is asking for smaller government, less taxes and spending, and less invasion into our lives.

Check it out.

With GA requiring a 50%+ vote to win (and I'm doubting on his best day that King Roy can pull that kind of support) there is really no reason not to vote for Monds for those that want to send a message to the GA Republican party. All we would be doing is forcing a runoff.

This is my plan. I'm hoping we can drum up over 10% for Monds and scare the bejesus out of the Republicans.

And if a Libertarian candidate can ever receive 20% of the vote, Libertarians get state-wide ballot access, which would be incredible.

Its something we're working towards. If we get 10% this time, we'll be very happy. 20% would be unbelievable, but at the moment, in the polls, it doesn't look like its going to happen.

Why would you waste your vote for Monds? Isn't he a stay-at-home dad? How is he even qualified?

Why would you waste your vote on one of the worst corrupt politicians RINO in the United States or a complete Obama Socialist?

Yes, I believe he is very qualified for the job of Governor. He meets more of my criteria than any other candidate.

B/c of what he says or what he has done? I understand your concern over GCO's endorsed candidate and roybama, but what makes Monds qualified per se?

As a single dad, are you saying in some way that a man who decides to stay at home and take care of his family is somehow less qualified to be a Governor than a Doctor, a Lawyer, or General Contractor?
What are the qualifications to be a politician? Whatever happened to "of the people, by the people, and for the people"?
What makes him less qualified per se?
Lately we have ended up with the career political class who somehow think that if you don't go to the right schools, and meet certain special criteria then you can't be one of them, and I've noticed that the mentality has trickled down to us "Peon's". Of course this last year has changed that somewhat with so many more people involved in the political process.

My quote thingy isn't working right on my iPad. I agree with what you are saying as my wife has more political savvy than anyone I know and gets calls daily from congressmen (and congresswomen) across the country. She is a mother first.

I like a lot of what I see on Mond's website but not everything. I can tell you that being a stay at home dad is not going to help him in this race. It's just political reality.

For some, having an "L" by your name qualifies you for anything.
For some having an "R" beside your name means its ok to be career politician that is too corrupt for even the likes of Pelosi and Frank.

Well, he's not the other guys.....in other words, I'll be voting against the other guys more than I'll be voting for Monds.

Adding to my statement....

Stay at home dad..... he's one of US. He cares about his kids and their future. Oh what a terrible thing. :roll: Yeah, we need someone who knows how to accept money from lobbyists so that they won't get in trouble for converting it to personal use cash. We need someone who knows how to lie and promise the world and then stab us in the back by doing whatever they want once in office. Yes, we need someone with such experience.

That doesnt make him qualified. It just makes him the "anti-vote".

For me, its because he is NOT a career politician. We're in this position because of voters putting people back in office that know how to milk a government job. Time for some new blood and to clean house of career politicians.

I understand this and don't particularly like the idea of recycled politicians myself.

I'll be voting for Monds. I can't stomach being insane for another election cycle. You know, doing the same thing over and over (sending the same kinds of people back into office over and over) and expecting that somehow, this time, they'll do something differently, maybe keep a promise or something.

For the record I've voted "L" every chance I've gotten for the last several elections.

I see Monds FINALLY decided to add the 2A to his issues page. It wasn't there the last time I visited his site about 8 weeks ago. I'm curious as to why a Libertarian would wait so long to add this to his site? Maybe he felt he needed the support from gun owners? Just and observation I made over the last few months, take it with a grain of salt.
