Many voters, unaware of the working of the Electoral College will impose theirswing-state fears on their neighbors and coworkers in states where the outcome is of such little doubt that campaign managers for the billion dollar corporate campaigns choose not to expend their limited resources campaigning there. Georgia is such a state where Presidential candidates campaign here only to (1) raise funds for their campaign in the so-called battleground states and (2) to campaign for downslate candidates of allies they will need in the Congress if elected.
Georgia voters live in a state which since Adlai Stevenson, has given its Electoral College votes to Democrats only twice: 1976 for native son and former Governor Jimmy Carter and in 1992 for DLC founder Bill Clinton, endorsed by his buddy the sitting Governor Zell Miller.
It is worth noting that neither Carter nor Clinton secured the Peach State Electoral College votes in 1980 when Reagan won, nor in 1996 when Governor Miller, a Democrat, spoke at the Republican Convention to endorsed Bob Dole.
In summary, for the last 13 elections, the score in Georgia has been Democrats - 2, Republicans - 10, American Independent - 1, or to summarize, the Banking Elites - 13 to the People - 0.
Our friends in the so-called swing-states will frequently succumb to the myths by voting their fears and abandoning logic for the bi-partisan lie of the lesser-evil. They too often fail to exercise their responsibilities as citizens to think critically and vote 'for' the future they wish to see our nation foster in the future we would hand to the next generation.
In Georgia though we have no such excuse.
