Vernon Jones may Run

According to Peach Pundit, "Snuggles" (their nickname for Vernon Jones) may be considering a run for the Governorship:

I’m Camille Kesler, Communications Director for Vernon Jones.

Vernon Jones has been getting a lot of email from you about running for Governor. I agree with you, Vernon would make a great Governor. You recently heard from him reiterating his passion for Georgia, especially regarding addressing critical issues like transportation, education, air and water quality, and creating jobs for Georgians. Vernon is considering all of your feedback and will make a wise decision that’s best for him, his family and all Georgians.

Now, as much as I would LOVE to see a democrat back in the Governor's Mansion, I think Vernon Jones might be the worst possible candidate to run. I am not voting for him. You know how there are RINO's (Republican in Name Only), well Vernon is a DINO (Democrat in name only).

Let me tell you why Vernon Jones is a DINO:

Civil Rights
Jones supports a constitutional amendment defining marriage as between one man and one woman.

Death Penalty
Jones supports a the death penalty for federal crimes and supports a states right to execute its prisoners.

Energy and Oil
Jones supports allowing drilling in federally protected areas, including the Outer Continental Shelf. Jones also supports federal funding for alternative energy sources, and "cap and trade" laws. Without limiting emissions, Jones believes global warming will be devastation to America and the rest of the world.

Gun Control
Jones favors eliminating as many regulations on gun ownership as feasible while allowing concealed weapons permits for law abiding citizens.

Homeland Security
Jones supports military tribunal for terrorists.

Tax Reform
Jones favors repealing the estate tax and favors a constitutional amendment requiring the federal budget being balanced.
