Help Defend the American Dream In Georgia!

Defending the American Dream Summit, May 3rd

Today, the voices of average Americans are being drowned out by lobbyists and special interests.

Tax and Expenditure Limitations to promote fiscal responsibility.
Removing unnecessary barriers to entrepreneurship and opportunity by sparking citizen involvement in the regulatory process early on in order to reduce red tape.
Restoring fairness to our judicial system by stemming the tide toward "over-criminalization" of economic activity spurred by over-active attorneys general.
Working with well-known businessman and free-market advocate Herman Cain to expand all of these projects to even more states across the country in our recently-launched "State Prosperity Expansion Project."

Dear Fellow Republicans,
As an Immigrant, I was living the American dream.
As a business man myself, we are not receiving any help from any republican elected official. The Republicans have the majority for a long time in Fayette county, so all the rules and regulations, making life extremely expensive and businesses to go under, are in place because of Republicans and new "no common sense" regulations are voted every meeting, so what is going to change? This is the pot calling the kettle black. The laws being voted in by Republicans are top heavy and oppressive to new and existing businesses.
