The only thing more ridiculous than Georgia politics in the past 6 months, is the fact that after it's all said and done, voters' answer to the problems that stem from this increasingly strong single party rule will be "MORE REPUBLICANS!!!" in future elections.

LOL!!! So true.
I approached this story with an open mind, and I can see where Representative Powell is coming from. Still, do principles only run as deeply as the amount of influence that you can put behind them? I truly believe in pragmatism, but the word for this situation is "craven", in my opinion. I would like to ask Representative Powell how well he thinks he is representing his district and the state of Georgia by being an important cog in the machine that is turning the entire state's government into a truly one party system.
We've all heard the saying "When the going gets tough, the tough get going". Well, if nothing else good comes out of this last election, it certainly turned out to be a great test of character. I can't help but being reminded of the French who sided with Germany during WWII because, well, there were a lot of them! And they had all the political power!
