It is time for Georgians to have a leader who is more concerned about the citizens of this fine state, than his own welfare or that of his political party.
Georgia can no longer afford to have a Governor who rules the state like a colony of army ants hunting for prey.
I am sure that many of us have seen a nature documentary or news program featuring the well-known army ants of South America, and we know how very destructive they can be. A colony of army ants will destroy everything in its path for its own sake—showing no compassion, showing no mercy. That is just the way it is with army ants, eat or be eaten. That is, however, no way to govern.
Unfortunately, our state is currently operating like this in too many areas. It is a disgrace and completely unacceptable. We have strayed terribly far from the poetic statement written by Emma Lazarus and displayed on the Statue of Liberty:
“Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed, to me.”
Our state needs a governor that will demonstrate exactly that kind of commendable leadership. Georgia needs leadership that will govern with kindness and concern.
“Georgia needs leadership that will govern with kindness and concern.”
Leadership that always looks to lift people up without regard to race, status, or creed. We need leadership that takes no account of wrongs suffered, but always looks out for the good of the citizens being served. I will be a leader Georgians can be proud to call their own.
I pledge to lead with integrity and consistently put the best interests of the citizens of Georgia first when I am elected Governor of Georgia.
