We're slowly starting to lose count of the Republican candidates vying to run for Saxby Chambliss' Senate seat in 2014.
Now enters Minister Derrick Grayson, a MARTA senior network engineer. The Stone Mountain conservative plans to run on a platform that includes small government, Second Amendment rights, reduction of the national debt, and boosting the economy. He plans to address pretty much the War on Everything, as well. That ranges from repealing all gun control laws for law abiding citizens to legalizing and regulating hemp and marijuana to keeping the government "out of our bedrooms."
"The erosion of personal freedom and liberty as a result of federal policy and legislation is alarming," Grayson said today in a statement. "Instead of encouraging job creation, current policies promote a culture of dependence on big government and welfare programs."
The DeKalb County resident joins U.S. Reps. Paul Broun of Athens, Phil Gingrey of Marietta, Jack Kingston of Savannah, and former secretary of state Karen Handel as official challengers in the 2014 U.S. Senate race. Former Dollar General CEO David Perdue, former Governor Sonny Perdue's cousin, has also formed an exploratory Senate committee.
Grayson, who calls himself "The Minister Of Truth," thinks many "out of touch" politicians struggle to help Americans in need. If elected, he says he would change that.
"The days of self serving politicians and those who seek enrichment by special interest are over," said Grayson. "Americans are capable of making decision for ourselves. We don't need more so-called leaders. We can determine our own destiny. What we need now are strong and principled voices that will stand and represent the will of 'We the People' and who will honor the oath to support and defend the Constitution."
As part of that effort, he wants education policy to be decided at the local level and to give families the choice to opt out of the public school system. "Not every parent wants to push their 3 or 4 year old's off to a government run daycare," he writes about the "cradle-to-career" education system on his website.
Grayson only has nine Facebook fans, which is sad. Join his grassroot network if you inclined to do so.
