A Commentary by Billy McKinney, Cynthia's Dad

The Fourth District is in danger of being represented
by the Republican Party. As I have looked back over
the last year of political events, I have detected a very
astute strategy to turn the 4th district over to the
Republican party. It is very clear now that all of
the dots are beginning to connect. After the stunning
victory over five seasoned elected officials in 2004, the
Republican party decided to run Republicans in all
races as Democrats. They put candidates in both
parties and would end up in November with their people
on the ballot, regardless of the Primary results.

This plan began with Rep. Lynn Westmoreland
re-districting the 4th district in the middle of the decade
after the district had just been redrawn. The gerrymandered
plan was approved by the Republican judicial system and
the Republican national, and state parties, knowing that
the Democratic Party would not fight to protect Rep. McKinney.
Areas that were familiar to the congresswoman and the
congresswoman familiar to them were removed and hostile
Republican voting majorities were placed in the district.
Rockdale and Gwinnett counties were just enough to
complete the plan and yet pass Justice Department muster.

The Republican party, with all of its money can buy
politicians to achieve their goal. In 2004, forty years of
seniority was lost to the community when three state
senators and one President of City Council gave up their
seats of power. The scheme had worked in 2002 when the
Republican Party chose Denise Majette to unseat
McKinney. Flush with money and determined to unseat
McKinney again, the national Republican Party chose
another weak character to achieve their goal. They are
flooding their candidate with money, votes, and
support. In the meantime, the Democratic party is
standing by with nothing to say or do. Yesterday,
the GOP revealed that the Democratic standard bearer
had taken McKinney off of his web site. They say it was
there to help win the primary, now it's gone.

It is easy to see that Hank is a darling of the Republicans.
Ray Charles can easily see what is going on. Money
makes the mare trot.

The Fourth District is in danger of being represented
by the Republican Party.

I was in the GA General Assembly for 30 years and have
seen many things, but nothing like this abandonment of
a senior member. If the Democrats let the brazen
Republicans do this, then the Democratic Party deserves
a Republican representitive presenting its views in Washington.

If this is the case, then the time is ripe for Cynthia to lead this
country in an independent movement. One where money is not
the leading ingredient, but where "Truth, Peace, and Justice" is
the mantle and WAR IS NOT THE ANSWER.
