Let's start with no gifts ethics legislation, adjust the gas tax to inflation (since they don't have the balls to do anything else), water, and MARTA .- Road Scholar
Balance their budget. Don't take gifts, trips. Education. Let parents decide. Vouchers. Homestead should be allowed on first and second properties as taxes are paid. No education tax on second property if no homestead. Not fair. No state income tax. Consumption tax brings more revenue. Smoke free in parks, public spaces. No subsidized healthcare for elected officials. -Seth

"...My aim has been to call people to ultimate significance as we make much of Jesus Christ." not being smart-alec but what does that mean exactly??? why cant we just teach the Bible flat out and say "we are here to call people to repentance through the grace of the Lord Jesus. we desire to see people saved and lives changed!" dont be afraid to be bold. i dont like this watered-down version of Christianity in our world today. I'm just afraid there are many in churches who are learning to become good "Christians" but without every truly becoming Christians in the firstplace. -Amy Leigh
