REPUBLICAN GUBERNATORIAL CANDIDATE RAY McBERRY ON DEPT OF JUSTICE RULING AGAINST GEORGIA’S VOTER CITIZENSHIP VERIFICATION
In a decision delivered to Secretary of State Karen Handel earlier this week, the federal department of justice announced that Georgia’s citizenship verification of voters is to immediately cease. Georgia’s verification of citizenship was begun as a result of increasing illegal attempts by aliens and others to vote in Georgia elections; and, as secure elections are a hallmark of a free republic, it is the inherent right of every sovereign state to take those steps necessary to guarantee such. Adjudication of the issue is not a matter which falls within the competent jurisdiction of the federal government, since that entity is merely the agent of the States.
Therefore, Ray McBerry, Republican candidate for Governor, most strongly urges Karen Handel, both as Secretary of State and as a fellow Republican, to officially repudiate and defy this constitutional usurpation by the federal department of justice.
Ray stated, “This week’s blatant federal intrusion into Georgia’s right to secure our elections from illegal voting is merely one in a long series of abuses upon the sovereign state of Georgia. It demonstrates now, more clearly than ever, that Georgia is destined to take a leadership role in wresting the unconstitutional powers away from an out-of-control federal government, if we are to restore our ancient liberties and the Republic of our Fathers.”
As an advocate of States’ Rights and a lecturer on the subject for more than a decade across America, Georgia businessman Ray McBerry is clearly the leader of the Georgia GOP on the subject. Attacks by Democrats in recent days which lead with Ray as the “point man” for the Georgia Republican gubernatorial candidates, again, clearly indicate that our opposition in Georgia understand that a strong States’ Rights candidate like Ray McBerry is their worst nightmare in their unveiled attempts to federalize every facet of our lives. As the States’ Rights leader of Georgia’s GOP gubernatorial candidates, Ray’s response is “Georgia First!”
